Spoilers for American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare

Last week American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare, the Miller family’s descent into madness continued as the search for missing Flora (Saniyya Sidney) escalated. First there was the lost farm housing feral kids. Then Flora’s father Mason (Charles Malik Whitfield) was found as a burned and dead totem in the woods, and Lee (Angela Bassett) was arrested. Matt (Cuba Gooding Jr.) and Shelby (Sarah Paulson) are at their wits end, stuck between belief and skepticism. On one hand, there are truly unbelievable things happening involving glass shattering during a seance, bloody letters on their walls, and creepy video tapes. But then when shifty medium Cricket Marlowe (Leslie Jordan) arrives claiming to communicate with the evil spirits of 400-year-old Roanoke ghosts, he casually needs $25,000 to continue “working.”

American Horror Story 602

Only three episodes into American Horror Story: Roanoke, the series 6th season on the FX network, and it is already picked up for a 7th season. Fresh off two more Emmy wins, the show created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk will return in 2017, to once again ruin bedtimes with their unique brand of horror. It was an easy call for FX execs, as the premiere episode of this season was the third highest rated broadcast on the network for the adults 18-34 demographic. The creators ran a genius viral marketing campaign, keeping the theme of the season a secret, and encouraging the fans to posts their guesses after countless video clues.

American Horror Story 6.3 Chapter 3 image

American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare
Season 6 Episode 3 “Chapter 3”
Directed by Jennifer Lynch
Written by James Wong
Created by Brad Falchuk & Ryan Murphy
Starring Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, Wes Bentley, Chaz Bono, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Cuba Gooding Jr.
FX Network
Air date: Wednesday, September 28, 2016, 10pm

Last week on American Horror Story, we learned more of the story that beset the Miller family, Shelby (Lily Rabe) and Matt (Andre Holland) portrayed in re-enactments by Sarah Paulson and Cuba Gooding Jr. It wasn’t enough that Shelby was attacked by who she thought were locals trying to scare them out of the colonial North Carolina house. Matt was the target this time, having visions of nurses murdering elderly patients and painting the word MURDER in blood on their walls. It turns out he didn’t imagine everything as they both stumble across a hatch where they find a videotape left by Dr. Elias Cunningham (Denis O’Hare) detailing the house’s history as an old folks home where sister nurses did indeed murder patients. If that wasn’t bad enough, Matt’s addiction riddled sister Lee (Adina Porter/Angela Bassett in re-enactments), who brought her daughter Flora there, where the young girl promptly made friends with a psychotic ghost who threatened to kill everyone, and then went missing.

Last week, we discovered the top secret theme of Season 6 of American Horror StoryMy Roanoke Nightmare. The infamous first colony that disappeared hundreds of years ago is the new home to Shelby and Matt Miller. The show is different from prior seasons in that it’s done “Unsolved Mysteries” style with the “real” Shelby (Lily Rabe) and “real” Matt (Andre Holland) narrating their experiences to the camera, while we watch actors in a re-enactment, Sarah Paulson and Cuba Gooding Jr. After a big city scare, The Millers retreat to Matt’s home state, and buy a huge colonial in Roanoke, NC. They instantly become targets for the locals who attack Shelby while Matt is away on a work trip. There also, of course, is a mysterious force lurking in the woods around the house. When Shelby finally takes off, she veers off the road and ends up in the middle of the woods witness to a bizarre cult.

Movie Review: ‘Pete’s Dragon’

Pete's Dragon #7

Pete’s Dragon
Director: David Lowery
Screenwriter: David Lowery, Toby Halbrooks
Cast: Bryce Dallas Howard, Oakes Fegley, Wes Bentley, Karl Urban, Oona Laurence, Robert Redford
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG | 103 Minutes
Release Date: August 12, 2016

Looking at David Lowery‘s Pete’s Dragon, you might not have known that it was based on the 1977 Disney film of the same name. In fact, the only similarity that the two films share between each other is that there is boy whose friend just so happens to be a real live dragon. Normally these reimagined stories would involve contemporary tweaks while staying true to the source material. Just look at The Jungle Book or Cinderella. But Lowery didn’t set out to that with Pete’s Dragon. Instead, his film deconstructs the idea of a remake of a Disney classic, and he turns it into something that resembles those childhood bedtime stories that your parents would read to you.

Disney has released an official trailer for Pete’s Dragon, the next in the line of remakes of their older movies. We saw a teaser trailer for the movie released back in February.

Unlike most of Disney’s remakes lately, which are updated live-action takes on their classic animated features, this one is a remake of their 1977 feature of the same name, which was a mixture of live-action and animation.

You can read more about the movie, give the new trailer a watch, and see a new poster below.

Say what you will about Disney reimagining their animated classics into live-action films, but the concept has been a box office smash for them. But Pete’s Dragon was one of those rare films to be hybrid of live-action and cel animation. It wasn’t as big of a hit with the masses, but it did gain a cult fan base, and soon it will be joining the live-animation reimaginings that came before it like Alice In Wonderland, Maleficent, and Cinderella.

Disney debuted very brief glimpses of the film during the D23 Expo in August of last year, and we haven’t heard much since then. Now, the studio has revealed the first motion poster for Pete’s Dragon. Check it out here below.

Interstellar movie review
Interstellar
Director: Christopher Nolan
Screenwriters: Jonathan Nolan, Christopher Nolan
Cast: Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, David Gyasi, Wes Bentley, Bill Irwin, Ellen Burstyn
Paramount Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 169 Minutes
Release Date: November 5, 2014

In Christopher Nolan‘s 2006 film, The Prestige, Cutter (Michael Caine) explains, “Every great magic trick consists of three parts or acts.”

“The first part is called ‘The Pledge.’ The magician shows you something ordinary: a deck of cards, a bird, or a man. He shows you this object. Perhaps he asks you to inspect it to see if it is indeed real, unaltered, normal. But of course… it probably isn’t.”

“The second act is called ‘The Turn.’ The magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you’re looking for the secret… but you won’t find it, because of course you’re not really looking. You don’t really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn’t clap yet. Because making something disappear isn’t enough; you have to bring it back.”

“That’s why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call ‘The Prestige.’” That monologue is all you need to know about Christopher Nolan as a filmmaker. Yes, he is a storyteller, but above all else he is a magician – an illusionist who delights in taking something ordinary and making it do something extraordinary.
