Girl, u so dead.

Alternate heading: American Horror Story season 3, episode 12

I  bring spoilers to those who have not seen the above mentioned episode! Look away, look a… ok? Ok!

So… *this* specific moment right here:

made me think our dear Fiona Goode was about to bite the dust. “But how? How could she bite the dust?” I thought to myself “And what was all that talk about her only having those two weeks left to live?”. I was under the impression that her deal with the voodoo deity was still standing, why wasn’t it standing?! Someone please explain.

Then of course, juuuust when you think to yourself for the first time “Oh there she goes again, yapping about her childhood memories and how yaddayadda, soooo drama queen…Who cares about your calico cat!?! “, you then have a split second when you just know that she has one second left before getting an axe to her back and

*crunch*

But seriously, besides that doubt I mentioned, doesn’t it just seem odd that the Supreme, with all her amazing powers (she does still have powers, remember how she owned Queenie at the beginning of the episode), could not mind control, clairvoy, telekenese or any other mumbojumbo her way out of this ‘perdicament’?

Misty says she’s gator food. Is she? Hmmm, I must admit I am a bit anxious to see the season finale, I hear the ending is quite unexpected.

Any ideas on who the next Supreme might be? Or if there will be a next supreme? Do you think Cordelia managed to avert what she saw in her vision?

Soooo curious hehe 🙂

Fearful Pranks Ensue – Finally somebody turned up the heat! :D

American Horror Story season 3 started a few weeks ago and I have felt that something has been missing, something I liked from the previous seasons. I guess there is no avoiding it, but I missed being afraid.

I can say without a doubt that so far the only part that really affected me was the first few minutes of episode one, to be specific, Mme Delphine Lalaurie’s horror show. Horrible. In every way.

And that was it.

There was no racing pulse after that, no shock, no anxiety, nothing. I cannot complain about the acting, not with those ladies leading the show. It is a royal treat in that aspect, but where is my adrenaline dammit?

Then came episode 4.

Finally I felt the element of surprise, some fear, some anger, some sadness. Thank you!

Myrtle Snow (Francis Conroy) was superb! Denis O’Hare’s (Spalding) character really suprised me, as did Josh Hamilton’s ( Hank Foxx, you freak.). Poor Cordelia (Sarah Paulson) I really hope she ends up ok… they always manage to make her my source for anxiety lol 🙂 .

It’s weird, but none of the main scary things scare me. The minotaur didn’t scare me, the zombies don’t scare me… Misty Day (Lily Rabe) scares me, Hank Foxx scares me, Spalding kind of gets to me. Still, this season has yet to give me shivers like the previous one. Does anybody else feel the same?

And no Angela Bassett, you don’t scare me either… yet.

Jessica Lange outdid herself

Jessica Lange outdid herself

Phenomenal performance by the amazing Jessica Lange in American Horror Story’s lastest episode “Continuum”!
The intensity of the emotions she felt in this scene were so clearly and intricately shown in her face. Absolute divine acting in those few seconds. She is a true artist.
Just perfect.

AHS 2×10 Promo

Well, it looks like the Monsignor is finally going to grow a set!

As the title suggests (“The Name Game”), it is time for a good old fashioned excorcism, or so I imagine, and the Monsignor is going to try to pry open this demon and find his name, for if you have someone’s/something’s name, you have power over it… or so it is said. The images seen in the promo only reinforce my suspicions.

Pepper seems to have gone even crazier, not sure if that is a good thing…

Sister Jude seems to be doing the same as Pepper, going even crazier, and that miiight be a good thing. 😉 … Also seems she might be getting shock therapy, that’s not such a good thing :/

My thoughts on American Horror Story episode 7 “Dark Cousin”

Well, what can I say? It had to happen eventually: an episode that let me down. Still not bad to love 6 out of 7 episodes (some more than others, of course).

Let’s start with what I did not like:

Lana

Dr. Thredson raping her was, as he said, a bad move. The “impasse” he created by doing this meant that Lana could no longer be that divine, pure, loving, protective and nurturing image he had longed for for so long.
He broke his toy.
At the same time, he could no longer be the innocent, vulnerable and loved child he so wanted to be.
He became corrupted, and they could never go back and start over.

So much work for nothing. Thredson is very irresponsible with his toys. He has no self control and should be very disappointed with himself.

Still on the topic of Lana: I always feel frustrated when women are portrayed as creatures that are unable to kill (that means most of the times). Granted that they didn’t want to kill Thredson off  in the series just yet, but this is my personal feeling, and given the chance (which Lana did have as he layed there unconscious), I would have made sure he died, even if it meant ripping off his jugular with my my own teeth.

Still on Lana: Getting into a car with yet another male mental case? Really? Utter overkill. It is just too much bad luck and they really overdid it. And how about sending her to a normal hospital no? Oh no no, let’s send the Jane Doe to the funny farm, they’ll fix her up way better there!

Pepper

Still no Pepper, and I don’t like that, ok?

Grace & Kit

It felt rushed. It felt like they were rushed into disaster because someone responsible for the series was in a hurry.

Sister Jude

I am getting a bit tired of her being or feeling so weak, and dwelling so much in her feelings of guilt. Get your shit together woman! Where did you leave that assertive, calculative, vindictive and harsh side of yours? Now that she knows she is in fact not a cowardly murderess (well, not a murderess at least), it might happen faster.

Sister Jude1

I can’t wait for her to pick herself up again so she can proceed to kick some demon or nazi ass. I am hoping this low only serves as an emphasis for the epic high and monumental amount of whoop ass she is about to serve soon (preferably to Dr. Arden please).

Now, what I liked:

Sister Satan’s lines:
“But… I mean… Since you appear to be all thumbs, surely one of them is green.”

“That’s rich, Arthur.”

“I hope this clarifies the chain of command Arthur.”

Sister Satan vs Ultimate Angel

Image

The whole dialogue and the acting, the mood, the fallen angel feeling fear, the dark angel remaining so calm and centered, so powerful. I loved it. I have always loved stories with the eternal conflict between both of these sides.

Now, episode 8 teaser:

Insane Santa seems too far fetched (yes, even for a series with aliens, angels and demons and nazi mad scientists).

My conclusion:

For such an exquisite series to have one episode that had so many overkill moments and such a rushed feeling to it is a bit disappointing. I feel that the level of excellence could have been upheld if some more care and thought had been applied.

Knowing that Lana will eventually have more “sessions” with Dr. Thredson doesn’t really scare me anymore. It’s like “meh, yeah, he’s done it all, he just has to kill her off now, since he can’t play with her anymore”. Of course I hope he dies a horrible slow death and that Lana finally finds freedom and peace (not by dying :P).

The Fallen Angel vs Ultimate Angel relationship is the only thing right now that has me on the edge of my seat. I can’t wait until they meet again.

Ah and Pepper, still anxiously waiting for news on her.

Asylum’s episode 7 “Dark Cousin”

I just watched the new teaser with more attention. And what did I see/ think I saw?

Still no Pepper. (right)

Grace summons a dark angel to help her? Oh man, don’t tell me the aliens implanted an angel (frequently compared or assumed to be aliens in many theories) into Grace! (so wrong)

Sister Satan is gonna get pre-tty mad with Grace for summoning/ giving birth to an Angel, and will set Dr. Arden on her (oh dear). (wrong)

Sister Satan places Dr. Arden in his proper place. (well duh)

Lana banana is visited by the dark angel. She tells her she is not ready to die, the angel says she comes when she is called. Does this mean Lana has to die? That is it her time? Or is it just the teaser guy putting that sentence there right after Lana says she doesn’t want to die to make me think that? Or does she say that but she is only there to help her? (mostly right)

Lana will get into a physical fight with Dr. Thredson. (right)

Sister Jude will commit suicide (0:25) ( I hope she fails, I like her). (rightish)

The dark angel visits Sam Goodman, a.k.a the nazi hunter (dead/alive?) in his bathroom (0:11). Hmmmm… (well, yes)

Please add anything you think I have missed!

Naughty Thredson!

So I just watched episode six of the Asylum (American Horror Story) series, and read a post created by a fellow blogger that also enjoys the series. He theorized about there being more than one Bloody Face, and after watching episode 6 I must say I have to agree with him. Either there is one and only one in the past, or one and one in the making (a student of his), or he will have a follower soon.

The reason I think there will be two Bloody Faces is because the one we see in the present (in the abandoned Briarcliff) seems to be young (late 20s to mid 30s). This means it cannot be Dr. Thredson as too many years have passed.

Adding to this, Dr. Thredson’s voice over the phone, when he talks to Kit, sounds a lot like the one we hear, also over the phone, when Bloody Face talks to the cop over Leo’s phone. Could this be that Thredson got himself someone to do his more physically demanding work, while stays at home waiting for more skin to play with?

What do you think?

Asylum

I love horror movies, well, good horror movies. Seldom do I find one that gives me a real adrenaline rush, or that surprises me, or that seems to be extremely well planned out, with rich details, twisted turns, new depths of cruelty.

Mind you I’m no sicko. But I do like a good scare, if it comes from a screen.

Today I watched the most recent episode in season 2 of American Horror Story: episode 5. It-was-perfection. I don’t think I have ever seen such a great episode.

Not to give out spoilers, but it really sank into new levels of horrifickness. It really brought out strong emotions, I was utterly surprised and immersed in one of the character’s perdicament.

Needless to say: Lana, I will pray for you until next week.
