CONFIRMED! Naomi Grossman Back As Pinhead Pepper on American Horror Story Freak Show – YES!

We’ll be adding more later, but for now we have this photo as proof (Source: EW.com/Entertainment Weekly).

Again, as we made no effort to even begin to hide here, the first official photo of Ms. Grossman as Pepper is the property of Entertainment Weekly– they own the copyright, not us.  There was no way were going to miss showing you the screencap, though! PLUS, we know Pepper won’t get killed off, since Freak Show takes place in the 1950s (and the present, but this is clearly the 50s time period) and Asylum took place in the 1960s.

This will also mark the first time in American Horror Story’s four-season run that any character has ever recurred. Now come on– if you got to pick a character to see again, wouldn’t awesome Pepper be your first choice?

We actually had heard rumors about this before, but didn’t want to post anything until we knew for sure (in fact, we waited to the point where who knows, you might have heard this days ago, but we’re sure as hell posting it now). One of the people that said they saw “Pinhead” on the call sheet also told us that Glenn Close was appearing in the Coven finale, and we know how that went.

More as it comes in. Best news we’ve heard since we saw Tim Minear was penning the season premiere!

 

She's baaaack!

She’s baaaack!

Amazing, Disturbing Concept Art From American Horror Story Asylum, Created By Designer Jerad S. Marantz, Won’t Help You Sleep Tonight (Dread Central)

OK, this right here is some scary shit from concept designer Jerad S. Marantz, showing off some of his concept art from the show created by him and by makeup FX artist Christian Tinsley,  who hold all the copyrights to the two images I used to feature this piece. Horror Boom had nothing to do with that, just finding them and sharing them here to scare the holy hell out of you (along with us)!

Looks like they stuck pretty close to the design for our favorite microcephalic, Pepper, and equally close (though with a different color palette) to Bloody Face. I finally figured out what separate’s Bloody Face’s look from the rest of the “cut off your face and fashion it into a mask to wear to kill my next victim” serial killers are the (bloody) teeth crudely sewed into the lips… or what would  be the lips…

Like we say above, if you’re already having trouble sleeping, maybe hold off on clicking the below link and perusing the detailed concept art/designs till daylight. You’ve officially been cautioned…

Crazy Concept Art From American Horror Story: Asylum Sends Chills | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central.

All the Rasper concept art is fucking horrifying.  I don’t know how or why they look more disturbing than the ones we saw on the show, but they do. There may be–probably is, in fact– more on the artist’s blog, I simply decided to not start roaming around on it until the sun is out.By the way, once you get to the gallery, note you can click on an image to isolate it, then expand it. I assume these took a lot of hard (or at least labor-intensive) work to create, the attention to detail is incredible.

The mid-transformation Shelley is what made the temperature in this room seem to plummet down to freezing for at least a minute, though.  You’ll know it when you see it.

The Dread Central piece within also  mentions that these images are from the artist’s (Jerad S. Marantz) own blog. Who knows, if you do a little digging, maybe you’ll find a way to buy or obtain that lovely concept art of Pepper above!  If we can find more art, up it’ll go… there ay be a slight delay depending on how dark the house is at the time, though.

 

Another Poll For American Horror Story Asylum Fans: Favorite Recurring Briarcliff Manor Guest Star – We Wanna Know Your Picks!

OK, I guess Pepper was closer to a guest role on the show than a regular character (as far as screen time), but there was no way I was going to leave her off the “Characters You’ll Miss Most” poll! This time, tell us your favorite–or most memorable– guest in a recurring role, because there were some real  show-stoppers!

And there was  no way we were going to leave Pepper off this list, either. We seriously considered putting in the character of “Spivey” as a “featured rasper”, even thought about adding the alien/s, but a human didn’t portray them.

I’m reasonably certain no last-minute surprises guest spots or cameos are coming up, but with this show you never know, so I’ll re-post if, say, Connie Britton pops up. Also, Spivey may not have been a featured rasper, and I can’t deny or confirm yet if he was the “kitchen rasper”. He was in the premiere, then “Origins of Monstrosity”, but unless he was a featured rasper, for now he’s not in the running.

So vote away! Same rules as “character you’ll miss most” poll – you can vote for up to three choices.
