Horror Happenings: AHS: Roanoke Paleyfest

On Sunday night, PaleyFest LA 2017 ended not with bang, but with a blood-curdling scream…

That’s right, Horror Fanatics! The cast & crew of AHS: Roanoke ended the fesival on a fiendish note! Cast members Sarah Paulson, Adina Porter, Cuba Gooding Jr., Kathy Bates, Denis O’Hare and Cheyenne Jackson were in attendance, along with Executive Producers Brad Falchuk (co-creator) and Tim Menear.

There wasn’t much in way of information on the upcoming season, but there was a lot of fun to be had. The team was a charmingly silly bunch, giving off the impression that they had deep admiration for each other, including the absent Angela Basset. Everyone had a few good laughs and seemed to be having a grand time, but it was Sarah Paulson and Kathy Bates who had ’em rolling. The two teased each other throughout the night, constantly giving each other a hard time. Paulson did a Swedish Chef-like impression of Bates, to which Bates responded with a simple “Go fuck yourself.”  Bates ended up doing her Paulson impression, which involved puffing out her lips. The two sat next to each other and kept touching and hugging each other during the entire event. Bates referred to Paulson as “The People’s Princess.”

When the floor opened for questions, we did get some more a bit more info. The actors were asked which AHS roles they would like to reprise. Paulson had chosen Cordelia, the head witch in charge in Coven. “We only got to see her just getting her powers. I just would like to know if the power might have been something that kind of changed her,” said Paulson. O’Hare went with Larry Harvey, the burnt-faced man who ended up in prison in the first season. “I’d like to see him get out of jail, he’s probably been organizing musicals there,” remarked O’Hare.

One fan asked if there would be “more famous people” next season. Instantly, Bates, Gooding Jr., O’Hare and Paulson walked off the stage, resulting in a thunderous roar of laughter from the audience. A fan delivered a letter to Sarah Paulson, in a move almost identical to the PaleyFest scene at the end of Roanoke.

After the Q&A, the stars stuck around and signed autographs/took pictures with the fans. Paulson, who stuck around and took a incredible amount of “selfies”, really lived up to Bate’s title of “People’s Princess.”

Coal for your Stocking: 5 Creepmas Episodes of Terror-Vision Favorites!

(Submitted by a gent who is chock fill o’ Ho-rrorday Cheer, Mr. Dr. Anton Phibes. A very scary Creepmas to you, my good  very bad sir. 😉 xoxo)

creepmastv10

GOOD LORD!! *choke*

We only have five days until Creepmas! We have to get as much Merry Madness out there before the big day! The “slay” bells must ring so loud as to wake the dead and we must drown ourselves in Egg Nog! There’s only so much time to make the our days scary and dark! To help keep Creepmas in your wonderfully dark little hearts, we here at Kinky Horror would like to share with you some must-see Horrorday class-sicks  to keep that Ghoul Log burning! These little lumps of coal are some the most festive installments of some of our favorite horror shows on the small scream and we hope these winter scary tales scare the (Charles) Dickens out of you and help to make your Creepmas delightfully weird.

creepmastv12

1.) American Horror Story – Unholy Night

American Horror Story: Asylum is a firm lock for my second favorite season (my heart belongs to Freak Show), and a perfectly macabre bit of genre television with a host of creeps and madmen to delight and drive mad. One of the craziest crazies in the crazyhouse is a psychotic “Santa Claus”  with a mean naughty streak and a penchant for spreading Creepmas fear! Ian McShane plays the krooked Kringle to repugnant perfection and his slaying is made all the more gruesome when juxtaposed with the warm trappings of the season. Christmas with the inmates can be a scream!

“There is no God, but there is a Santa Claus!

-Leigh Emerson, Killer Santa

creepmastv1

2.) Tales from the Darkside – Seasons of Belief

You know Krampus, The Grinch, The Bumble, and the Gremlins… but do you recall the most fearsome monster of all?

The Grither is a ferocious beast that lives in a cave on the other side of the mountain that Santa resides, housed inside the wreckage of a ship. The Grither hates nothing more than to hear his name taken in vain and will punish any fool who dares to utter his name. Tales from the Darkside was never my favorite horror anthology shows, but this episode is a woefully under-seen Creepmas treat. Just… don’t say his name, okay?

creepmastv7

3.) Invader Zim – The Most Horrible X-Mas Ever

Invader Zim is perhaps the darkest program ever to masquerade as a “kid’s show”, and we absolutely adore it for that very reason. The plot concerns a hopelessly inept alien invader looking to conquer a small, obscure planet… Earth. For this Creepmas special, the titular Zim looks to achieve conquest by pretending to be Santa and sending us to his homeworld to be imprisoned. This is perhaps the only animated “family” special to end with Santa mutating into a horrible, ungodly monstrosity and being launched into space to die. Merry Christmas, Earth Monkeys!

creepmastv2

4.) The Addams Family – Christmas with the Addams Family

Terror-vision’s first family of fright celebrate’s Creepmas in their own inimitable way. Of all the specials on this list, this is probably the most traditional, complete with seasonal decor, a reaffirmation to the existence of Santa, and a warm carol sung to the audience. However, the whole affair is seasoned with that special arsenic-flavored humor that has made the Addams clan so dear to us all. Why not spend Creepmas with the Family?

creepmastv5

5.) Tales from the Crypt – And All Through the House

We close this selection Creepmas goodies with a visit to the Crypt of Terror. And All Through the House is certainly a class-sick of the highest order, first appearing in the pages of Vault of Horror, being brought to death by Hammer director Freddie Francis in the Amicus version of Tales from the Crypt, and finally making it to the small scream. This sadistic Santa story is a favorite of many of us here at KH and as a treat to all you festive freaks, we present this Ghoultide masterpiece in its entirety! Naughty… or nice?

creepmastv8

We hope these creepy chestnuts make your Horrorday as scary as it is merry and we’ll end our seasonal offering with a sincere and simple…

creepmastv6

and a Happy New Fear! 🙂
