‘American Horror Story’: Ryan Murphy on why ‘Coven’ is the best season

Like Ryan Murphy really needs to sell us on this, right? You had us at ‘American Horror Story Coven,’ dude!  Less than 48 hours left!

 

DO NOT Miss This New American Horror Story Coven Trailer! LaLaurie Horrors VS. Marie Leveau – IT’S ON!

We were wondering (and dreading) when the American Horror Story Coven teasers (besides ‘Pins and Needles’, one of the earliest) would show or even hint at the horrors Delphine La Laurie (Kathy Bates) was capable of. We also wanted to see more of Angela Basset as Marie Leveau. Here in this “Mythology” trailer, we get both…

It also looks like Lily Rabe‘s character might not make it past the pilot, witch which would explain why her name is not on any of the posters (color us seriously bummed).

The spot starts off with these shots of Fiona Goode (Jessica Lange), in an especially beautiful and striking shot:

"There's a storm coming..."

“There’s a storm coming…”

Then LaLaurie  entering her personally-created chamber of horrors (and yes, that’s blood smeared on her face in the promo; slave’s blood as a beauty cream), holding a candle and looking full of rapture…

Which is much more disturbing that an evil look, when you get glimpses of what sights have her so joyous…

Pretty sure which LaLaurie victim this is by looking at the claw-like hand, but we’re not comfortable describing that particular event/torture

Pretty sure that's her doctor husband beside her, who helped out when it came to more technical things like breaking and re-forming the limbs of her victims into grotesque shapes, and you know what, that's enough speculation on that subject for now

Pretty sure that’s her doctor husband beside her, who helped out when it came to more technical things like breaking and re-forming the limbs of her victims into grotesque shapes, and you know what, that’s enough speculation on that subject for now

There’s some shots of ugly fundamentalist, hateful religious nuts that wouldn’t be out-of-place in the True Blood opening credit sequence. We also see Leveau looking ready to unleash her wrath, with Angela Basset looking beautiful and seething:

Followed by an awesome closing shot (that just puts the icing on the fucking bad-ass cake*) of a swamp alligator snapping its jaws around what looks like the entire upper half of a man and dragging him speedily into the water.

He probably deserved it.

BAM! TITLE CARDS! Hot Damn! Less than a week till the premiere, “Bitchcraft”, On October 9th! Who else gets a big adrenaline surge just thinking about that?  Oh YES!

KICK SOME ASS, MARIE!

KICK SOME ASS, MARIE!

Here’s the PR synopsis/pitch again for American Horror Story Coven from FX:

Coven tells the secret history of witches and witchcraft in America. Over 300 years have passed since the turbulent days of the Salem witch trials and those who managed to escape are now facing extinction. Mysterious attacks have been escalating against their kind and young girls are being sent away to a special school in New Orleans to learn how to protect themselves. Wrapped up in the turmoil is new arrival, Zoe (Farmiga), who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own. Alarmed by the recent aggression, Fiona (Lange), the long-absent Supreme, sweeps back into town, determined to protect the Coven and hell-bent on decimating anyone who gets in her way.

So, looks like it must be The Season of the Witch for American Horror Story this year, huh? (See what we did ther–Ow! Hey, who threw that?)

*It took SERIOUS self-restraint to only use the word ‘fuck’ once in this piece. Oops, that’s twice, guess we bumped this to an R-rating now. Hell!

‘American Horror Story: Coven’: Watch the new main titles — VIDEO

‘American Horror Story’: See Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett in ‘Coven,’ plus plot details — EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS

Well,Ms. Horror Boom was sick last Friday the 13th, witch which can be the only explanation for missing this item a week ago (too sick to go see Insidious Chapter 2 opening night/weekend = too sick to notice a HUGE story like this on American Horror Story Coven, witch which we’ve been deliberately combing the internet for–and still are). Regardless, here are all the plot details thus far. Let’s hope Marie Leveau kicks LaLaurie’s evil ass back to hell where her soul deserves to burn for all eternity. Creator Ryan Murphy embellished the real-life horror story with the blood-as-wrinkle-cream idea (damn!) but if you have the stomach to read (or have already read) about what Delphine LaLaurie‘s real-life crimes entailed, you’ll be cheering on Angela Bassett as Leveau before she even shows up. Actually, we were already cheering for her anyway, she looks so damn cool. The costumes and period detail are gorgeous so far– and that’s just the icing on the cake!

 

Fight or burn! Watch the new trailer for ‘American Horror Story: Coven’ — VIDEO

Just what we need after a week of rain here! Angela Basset has gotten to play Tina Turner AND Marie Leveau in her career – how fucking cool is THAT?

 

TVLine Items: AHS: Coven Witches Revealed In New TV Spot!

We saw this during the second commercial break in the Sons of Anarchy premiere (did you?), and while that was entertaining, seeing the familiar faces of the American Horror Story repertoire cast–ending with those last famous three–had us on our feet. We’re pretty sure the two of us weren’t the only ones, too. American Horror Story Coven premieres on FX October 9th – FUCK YEAH!

TVLine

Plenty of familiar faces populate the new teaser for American Horror Story: Coven — making it pretty clear who’ll be counted among the FX’s creepsterpiece’s witchy women — but a certain bovine one may be starring in your nightmares for the rest of the week.

The network has unveiled a new 30-second trailer titled “Initiation” and it looks like AHS vet Jessica Lange, along with newcomers Angela Bassett and Kathy Bates, will be Coven‘s chief cauldron-stirrers.

Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Gabourey Sidibe and more also pop up in the new campaign. AHS: Coven premieres October 9 at 10/9c.

Ready for more of today’s TV dish? Well…

TVLine has learned that 24 alum Annie Wersching has landed a juicy guest-starring role on CBS’ midseason spy series Intelligence, playing a CIA analyst with a secret. The Josh Holloway-fronted drama debuts Feb. 24, 2014; Wersching appears in Episode 6.

Watch Unsettling Teaser #2 For American Horror Story Coven – Hint About LaLaurie Storyline?

YIKES. This one is titled “Pins and Needles”.  We’re guessing it’s hinting at the very hideous real-life Delphine LaLaurie storyline and what’s in her attic (although many areas of the LaLaurie mansion were very dangerous, scary places to be, especially if you were a slave – she kept her kitchen slaves chained to the stove). Watch below… be warned, this one’s unnerving.

The third season, (or Volume Three, as Ryan Murphy refers to the seasons) premieres on October 9th, 2013. The season premiere is titled “Bitchcraft”. Jessica Lange plays a witch named Fiona, Sarah Paulson plays her daughter Cordelia*, Angela Bassett plays Marie Laveau, and Kathy Bates plays Delphine LaLaurie. Oh, and Alexandra Breckenridge (Young Moira from Season One) will also be making a return appearance–as a new character, of course. Damn! This just keeps getting better and better… more teasers are sure to follow soon!

Screen shot 2013-08-07 at 10.36.47 PM

Damn RIGHT, viewer discretion advised!

*a reference to King Lear, rather than Buffy/Angel’s Cordelia Chase. I miss that Cordelia.
