Is Ally's Doctor the Cult Leader on Ahs? This 1 Item In His Office Might Prove It

  • BuzzSugar
Since American Horror Story: Cult premiered a few weeks ago, we've been theorizing who could be part of the cult. While some of the bad guys are obvious, there are others who are trying to appear innocent, and we're officially onto them. We suspected that Ivy (Allison Pill) was in on the cult from the start, and we absolutely already knew Sonja from the Real Housewives of New York has a drinking problem (thank you for settling that, Meadow), but the second "Neighbors From Hell" began, we knew that Dr. Rudy Vincent (Cheyenne Jackson) had to be clowning around. The real question is, just how involved in the cult is he? Episode three opens with a therapy session between a couple and Dr. Vincent. The couple is celebrating that the wife, Rosie (Laura Allen), has conquered her crippling feretrophobia (fear of caskets). After the session, her fear is immediately ignited

Daytime TV Diehards Would Definitely Recognize This American Horror Story: Cult Actor

  • BuzzSugar
Image Source: FX Networks "Neighbors From Hell," the latest episode of American Horror Story: Cult, begins with a cold opening featuring a couple seeing Ally's therapist, Dr. Vincent. The problem is with Rosie, who has had a debilitating fear of coffins ever since her father repeatedly locked her in a cupboard as a young girl. Her husband, Mark, is there for moral support, and it sounds like Rosie has managed to conquer her fears, aided by attending her father's funeral and literally closing the casket on him. RelatedThis Subtle Connection Between Ivy and Kai on Ahs: Cult Will Make You Scream Unfortunately, the fear comes roaring back when Rosie and Mark are attacked by the gang of clowns and locked into separate white coffins in their house, screaming in terror all the while.

Interview: Laura Allen Talks Taking on a Terrifying Transformation in Clown

  • DailyDead
A monstrous transformation threatens to literally tear a family apart in Clown. With Dimension Films and Anchor Bay Entertainment releasing the movie on Blu-ray and DVD on August 23rd, Daily Dead spoke with Clown co-star Laura Allen about what attracted her to the role of Meg, working with Peter Stormare, one of her favorite scenes that was cut from the movie, and more.

What made you say “yes” to taking on this movie with this crazy concept?

Laura Allen: I was in New York City in the fall of 2012, I had a brand new baby in my hotel in SoHo, and I was given the script. I started reading Meg’s story in Clown, and was getting the fact that everything’s so primal. She’s pregnant and she’s terrified and she’s just interested in the survival of her family. There were steps that she made and

[Review] Clown

Inside Out notwithstanding, it’s been awhile since cinema attempted to make clowns scary again, or at least use them as the central focus of a horror piece. Cheap make-up, big shoes, colorful hair, and a frilly suit can’t be all that scary anymore, so why bother? After a three-and-a-half-year shelf life, Clown, the Eli Roth-produced directorial debut of Jon Watts — who went on to put out Cop Car before this film’s release and is currently shooting Spider-Man: Homecoming — has arrived with the full intention of rectifying that void and answering that question.

Following in the footsteps of a Grimm fairy tale, Clown tackles the ‘ancient Nordic myth’ of an evil spirit living inside a clown costume that has one goal: devouring children, one for each month of winter. To do so, someone must first don the costume, wherein they’ll begin to transform into a demonic clown,

Review: Clown is a Genuinely Disturbing Effort by Jon Watts

  • DailyDead
It’s hard to believe that a movie like Clown even got made in the first place; the project started out as a fake trailer several years ago, which caught the attention of Eli Roth (because his name was plastered all over it), who then brought the concept to Vertebra Films in hopes of getting the project off the ground for director Jon Watts.

Now, after all this time, Clown has finally arrived in the Us via Dimension Films, and while it could have used a little more trimming (especially in the film’s second act), by and large, Watts has crafted a genuinely creepy and disturbing body horror experience unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. I had an immensely good time watching Clown, making it well worth the wait.

Clown follows Kent (Andy Powers), a real estate agent doing his best to juggle a demanding career and his responsibilities to his family.

Clown Review

ClownJon Watts’ long-silenced, Eli-Roth-produced possession flick – is despicably vile. Now, for a horror fan, this might come as a vote of confidence, and typically, you’d be right. I love a good horror movie that f#*ks me up in all the right ways, yet Jon Watts’ transformation-gone-goofy crosses a line that becomes less fun and overly morose. Everything suggests a wacky, wild metamorphosis – from a Peter Stormare bit-part to demon-infested clown suit – but this is grimy, gross-out horror with little meaning beyond kill, kill, and kill some more. It’s fun in spurts, but plays too serious for comfort most of the time – a Coulrophobic’s nightmare buried under weak, underdeveloped scripting.

Andy Powers stars as Watts’ father-turn-demon, a realtor named Kent. The day of his son Jack’s (Christian Distefano) birthday, their party clown cancels at the last minute, which Kent must remedy. As he wanders around an empty listing,

Interview: Laura Allen Talks Clown (Exclusive)
Parents are often driven to only act in ways that will positively influence their young and impressionable children. Unfortunately, at times even their best intentions can fail and ultimately do more harm than good. That’s certainly the case with the married main characters in the horror film, ‘Clown,’ as they try to make their son happy on his birthday with a visit by the title iconic figure. But actress Laura Allen’s well-meaning character soon uncovers the frightening consequences of depending on superficial societal expectations to fulfill a sense of happiness, instead of following her own instincts.

Get Creepy with New Photos from Eli Roth-Produced Clown

Jon Watts’ long-awaited killer clown film (aptly titled) Clown is finally getting ready to see the light day (it’s a couple of years old) when it hits select theaters and VOD June 17th via Dimension Films & Anchor Bay Entertainment. Watts has since helmed the very impressive Cop Car and was hired to reboot a certain franchise involving some kid named Peter Parker and his issues with a spider bite…but before those films, he co-wrote and directed what is easily one of the most uncomfortably intense horror films in quite a while, which makes the film’s delay over the last couple of years that much more baffling. We loved this one and are stoked to share a gallery of photos that were sent to us, thanks to the crew over at Dimension Films and Anchor Bay Entertainment.
