Anyone else get nightmares after Episode 3 of Hotel?
'American Horror Story' has returned with yet more blood and supernatural horrors than ever before with 'Season 5: Hotel'. If you thought 'Freak Show' was as bizarre as it could go, you'd be wrong. And episode three 'Mommy' takes it up yet another spine-chilling notch.
Chloe Sevigny has the creepiest greeting so far in 'American Horror Story: Hotel'
So what's happened so far? Well episode one 'Checking In' saw Hotel Cortez play host to some particularly creepy, bloodthirsty forces, with the wretched, ill-fated guests being killed by flesh-eating ghost kids, raped to death by the Addiction Demon and slashed to ribbons by vampires during an orgy. Plus, Hypodermic Sally (Sarah Paulson) has fallen to her death at the hands of Donovan's (Matt Bomer) protective mother, hotel manager Iris (Kathy Bates). Naturally, events have caught the attention of Detective John Lowe (Wes Bentley).
Evan Peters will star in 'American Horror Story: Hotel'. The 28-year-old actor has starred in the past four seasons of the hit FX show from creator Ryan Murphy.
Evan Peters is returning to American Horror Story: Hotel. The series' creator, Ryan Murphy, announced the news on Twitter on Friday (24th April). "This season, Evan Peters will be waiting for you in Room 64. #AHSHOTEL," Murphy wrote.
Evan Roberts has been cast in American Horror Story: Hotel.
The actress will make a return for the fifth season of 'AHS' in the fall, having previously made a guest appearance in the second series.
It may have suffered the loss of Jessica Lange from its cast recently, but the new season of FX’s ‘American Horror Story’ is continuing to build a pretty impressive looking new roll call with the addition of Chloe Sevigny today.
On Tuesday morning, the show’s executive producer Ryan Murphy announced via Twitter that Sevigny would be making a return to the program in a more permanent role. Fans may remember that she made a brief - but memorable - appearance during the second season (‘Asylum’), playing Shelley the nymphomaniac.

Good news and bad news.
American Horror Story will never be the same after this announcement. On Saturday, the show had a panel at Paley Fest, during which Jessica Lange confirmed her departure. Now, before you go completely removing the Ryan Murphy show from your fall TV schedule, there are some good news too.
Four seasons and two Emmy awards in, Jessica Lange has had enough.
Like, guess who’s coming in for next season (creatively titled American Horror Story: Hotel). Does the name Matt Bomer ring a bell? The Suits star will definitely be in the line-up, although the part he will play is still a mystery.
In this pointed and involving New York drama, the snap of realistic dialogue more than makes up for a fundamental flaw in the premise. It helps to have first-rate actors like John Lithgow and Alfred Molina in the focal roles, and filmmaker Ira Sachs has a wonderful eye for earthy rhythms of human interaction that continually reveal deeper truths everyone can identify with. So the way the film explores a long-term relationship is revelatory and important.
The film opens as Ben and George (Lithgow and Molina) finally get legally married after 39 years together. But when they return from their honeymoon, their happiness hits a bump: George is sacked from his job as a music teacher at a Catholic school because he's now considered openly gay. Unable to afford their mortgage, they sell their flat and take a huge loss due to fees. So now they are forced to live separately: Ben moves in with his workaholic nephew Elliot (Darren E. Burrows) and his wife Kate (Marisa Tomei), sharing a bunk bed with their surly teen son Joey (Charlie Tahan). Meanwhile, George takes the sofa of noisy party-boy neighbours Ted and Roberto (Cheyenne Jackson and Manny Perez). Neither situation is remotely ideal, but they try to make it work, knowing that it's temporary.
The problem is that none of this is actually necessary. They had much better options than this, so the continuing messiness feels like it could have been very easily avoided simply by making a few rational decisions rather than be pushed in one direction by an undercooked screenplay. On the other hand, the actors are more than up to the challenge, finding the most meaningful angles within every scene. Sachs gives his cast the space to bring these likeable people to life. Lithgow is terrific as the chatty Ben, who drives Kate crazy while creating tensions in their family. And Molina is wonderful as the more patient, open-minded George. Their chemistry together is sparky and realistic.

After living together for 39 years, Ben (John Lithgow) and George (Alfred Molina) are able to get married to one another. As George works as a music teacher for a Catholic school, the news of his same-sex marriage causes him to lose his job, and with Ben receiving a pension, the couple are forced to live off the small amount of money. When they are forced to seek a place to live with their friends and family, they are forced to live separately with different families. In their new life, they discover the true meaning of love and friendship, and teach a little to those around them in the process.

Ben and George have been together for four years and finally decide to get married. While their matrimony may have touched the hearts of their friends and family, the archdiocese soon hears about it and George is subsequently fired from his job as a teacher at the local catholic school. The pair can't afford to live in the area any longer with only Ben's pensions and George's profits from private piano lessons as income, and so they must sell their apartment and set out on a search for cheaper housing. However, the tough New York housing market means they are forced to stay with their separate families and friends. It's not the most ideal of situations for anyone; George and Ben are struggling to cope with their separation and neither are dealing with their strange new home environments.

This biopic about the pianist-showman Liberace may look almost painfully camp, and sometimes it is, but it's also a remarkably honest depiction of an intimate relationship. In the hands of Steven Soderbergh, the flaming excess is never made the butt of the joke; instead we get a strong dose of gritty humour, dark emotion and even a revealing look into the smoke and mirrors of show business. And the astute performances from both Douglas and Damon continually catch us off guard with their resonance.
It was 1977 when the 57-year-old entertainer (Douglas) met 17-year-old Scott Thorson (Damon). There was an instant spark as Liberace, known to his friends as Lee, offered Scott a job as a companion: on the stage, in his bed and running his household. But their relationship wasn't easy. Lee coaxed Scott into joining him under the knife of a plastic surgeon (Lowe) who reshaped Scott's face to look like a younger Liberace. Afterwards, Scott became addicted to a variety of drugs, which strained their romance to the breaking point. And it didn't help that Lee had an eye for ever-younger boys, all while insisting to the world that he was straight. "People see what they want to see," he said.
While the production design overflows with Liberace's "palatial kitsch" design sensibility, Soderbergh keeps the story and characters grounded, finding humour in unexpected places (Lowe's over-lifted face is hilarious). And despite the outrageous costumes and hair, the actors never camp up their performances, which cleverly holds the story in a delicate balance between sharp comedy and involving drama. In this sense, LaGravenese's script is particularly clever, peppering the dialog with telling details that gives us a remarkably well-rounded picture of the interaction between these men. And it continually resists becoming another stereotypical gay romance, celebrity biopic or drugs odyssey.

Liberace was an American pianist and entertainer well-known for his flamboyant lifestyle and the sense of grandiose he carried about with him. His personal life was embroiled in scandal with rumours of homosexuality which he vehemently denied. While everyone saw him as a figure of extravagance and individuality, behind closed doors was a turbulent relationship with a young chauffeur 39 years his junior. Scott Thorson became an important figure in Liberace's life; not only as a driver, but also like a son, a brother and a best friend. They embarked on a 5 year affair that saw Liberace persuade Scott into facial surgery to resemble himself, something which led to a desperate struggle with drugs on Scott's part and many a fiery argument between them. Just what was life for Liberace like behind the glitz and glamour of his luxurious existence?
