In the wake of the recently released official first look of episode one — cleverly named Bitchcraft — it seems the folks at “American Horror Story” have doubled their efforts in giving us more peeks at their newest season. I think I speak for everyone when I say, “Let’s get this show on the road, people!”
Not only do you see more of those insanely high heeled shoes strutting their way around “Coven’s” beautifully creepy setting, but also sitting perfectly still on a bed as the students take part in what can only be described as ‘Study Hall.’ In addition, there are also more clips of the mysterious Queen of Voodoo as she’s doing some of her beloved past times, namely sticking pins into voodoo dolls and letting a snake creep it’s way under the skirt of her dress (which at this point just appears to look like she’s half woman-half snake… not sure if that’s intentional or not).
The final and latest clip is of a young woman who is facing away from us against a wall, her hair sticking straight up in disarray, a pentagram carved into her left wrist. All I have to say is it’s a good thing October 9th isn’t far because I don’t know how much more of these small glimpses I can handle before I go batty.
And just as this blog was going up, they released yet another teaser video. Sheesh, people, let us catch up, already! And check out some new pics in the gallery below.
Even with the October premiere drawing nearer and all of the already frightening glimpses into “American Horror Story‘s” new season Coven, the creators of the hit horror-drama still manage to entice us with every new teaser. And they’ve done it again.
The most recent video teaser shows a faceless figure pulsing with forearm-length pins jabbed into its body, obviously taking note of the strong influences of voodoo in the season to come, all the while keeping with those good ‘ol chilling sound effects that always make their way into our nightmares (or mine anyway.)
In addition, they’ve delivered us two new photos. One of Kathy Bates as the cruel-sounding and (obviously) fabulous Madame Delphine DeLaurie, and one of Angela Bassett as the Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau. Looking at the sheer intricacy of their clothing, all of the 1830s flashbacks to come are getting me all hot and bothered.
Come on, who doesn’t love a good time period story?
And from the way “AHS” has done it in the past, I’m sure taking a story as interesting as the Salem Witch Trials, throwing in some voodoo and adding Bates, Bassett, Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, and the slew of returning alumni, this season will make quite the delicious witch’s brew.
Last week I got to dish on the fabulous “Haven” with one of its stars, Lucas Bryant. This week, me and some other media reps got to chat with Eric Balfour, the charismatic yet mysterious “Duke” on the series. And sadly for him, the odd man out in the somewhat unconventional love triangle that runs through the “Haven” series.
Ah, the pain of unrequited love.
Here is a sound clip of part of the call, where Balfour talks about his character’s arc for this season, finding the “one true love,” and the real bromance between him and Lucas. And checkout my TV column tomorrow at Examiner.com for the full scoop on today’s call, and the full length story from last week with Lucas Bryant.
As if the real show isn’t funny enough, the full gag reel for “Supernatural” Season 8 dropped this week, and you can see it now before buying the DVD September 10. Watch the boys flubbing lines, being silly and falling down… again, and again, and again. And a really uncomfortable scene between Jensen Ackles and Misha Collins.
You’ll know which one I mean.
As for Season 9, a few spoilers have made the rounds, including the return of Felicia Day, and an episode where they take on “The Wizard of Oz.” That should be quite interesting. Who do you suppose will be Dorothy?
“Supernatural” Season 9 premieres October 8 on the CW.
