A creepy, yet oddly sexy, trailer for Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s (”Nip/Tuck,” “Glee”) new FX series “American Horror Story” has hit the web. The show stars Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton as an unstable married couple who discover that their new Los Angeles home is haunted.
This show looks really good. Of course, if its anything like Murphy’s previous work, it’ll probably get preachy by season two and we’ll discover that the ghost really just want to teach the living tolerance and Britney Spears lyrics. Oh, and Gwyneth Paltrow will guest star.
“American Horror Story” premieres on FX on Oct. 5.
Columbia Pictures has released the first official trailer for directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor’s Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. The sequel once again finds Nicolas Cage battling evil as stunt motorcyclist-turned-supernatural-vigilante Johnny Blaze, AKA Ghost Rider.
If watching Ghost Rider piss fire isn’t enough to get your interest, here’s the synopsis:
Johnny – still struggling with his curse as the devil’s bounty hunter – is hiding out in a remote part of Eastern Europe when he is recruited by a secret sect of the church to save a young boy (Fergus Riordan) from the devil (Ciaran Hinds).
At first, Johnny is reluctant to embrace the power of the Ghost Rider, but it is the only way to protect the boy – and possibly rid himself of his curse forever.
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance also stars Christopher Lambert (Highlander), Johnny Whitworth (Limitless) and beautiful Italian actress/pop singer Violante Placido (The American). The film opens in 3-D on Feb. 17, 2012.
Former “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” star and Playboy cover model (July, 2000) Charisma Carpenter is set to star in the Syfy original Haunted High. The 40-year-old stunner will play a sexy librarian at a New England private school overrun by demonic forces.
Carpenter most recently starred in Jason Bourque’s survival-frightener Crash Siteand Hanelle Culpepper’s psyche-thriller Deadly Sibling Rivalry, in which she plays twins. She is, of course, best known for her role as bratty-babe-turned-vamp-killer Cordelia Chase on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and its spinoff “Angel.”
Carpenter will reunite with “Buffy” alum James Marsters on the fifth episode of the seventh season of The CW’s “Supernatural,” premiering on Sept. 23. Entitled “Shut Up, Dr. Phil,” the episode finds Carpenter playing a witch scorned by her husband (Marsters).
Haunted High is directed by Jeffrey Lando (Thirst) and is currently being shot in New Orleans.
