American Horror Story: Coven - Episode 3.09 "Head"

This Week on American Horror Story Coven, Fiona makes an attempt to save by joining forces with Leveau, LaLaurie suffers from serious headache as Queenie puts her through some actions which LaLaurie considers "torture", and Hank makes his move in taking down the witches. Cordelia's attacker is revealed. Fiona looks to form an alliance with Marie Laveau. Nan learns a disturbing truth about Luke's past.

'Head' is the last episode of the first act of the Season, now taking its mid-season finale, you know to stop spreading holiday fear instead of holiday cheer. This episode may not have been the strongest of a good bunch, but it was certainly a taut affair that pushed the boundaries and tied the narrative so far into one big glorious bow. As said before, expect plenty of spoilers here, and this episode more than any is one you do not want spoiled, so look away from here on in.

Why 'Texas Chainsaw 3D' Isn't Actually a Bad Slasher Flick

Texas Chainsaw (or 3D for the lucky viewers) was the first Box Office hit in 2013, and although it bagged itself a decent amount of cash, critics absolutely slaughtered the flick and made a mockery of it; as did audiences. However, despite all the bad publicity the film received, I actually liked it, and all the hate was a little random for me. Here is a short list of all the things that made to me, Texas Chainsaw a good slasher sequel, and why it wasn't as bad as critics painted it to be.

'The Orphanage' Director Tackles the 'World War Z' Sequel

Juan Antonio Bayona, the director of the hit Del Toro tale The Orphanage has been confirmed to direct the sequel to the box office hit World War Z that seen Brad Pitt as top form taking down a zombie or two. Judging by the success of the film at the box office, bagging a whopping $202 Million worldwide, it was no shock that a sequel was in the mix, and with The Conjuring and Insidious doing well also, it was inevitable that these films were going to spawn some more.

Whether or not it will be as good as World War Z is a different story, but with a director like this behind the camera i'm sure it will be just as juicy as the first. Only time will tell so we may patiently wait.

American Horror Story: Coven - Episode 3.08 "The Sacred Taking"

American Horror Story returned after a couple of weeks of absents, and to be honest, it did go a miss. Not having my weekly dose of campy horror really took a tole on me, but with The Walking Dead being as intense as ever, it kind of took my mind off the lack of AHS. This week wasn't as strong as it could have been, but none-the-less was still a fun episode. With Fiona struggling to cope with the effects of her medication, the rest of the coven undertake a ritual known as the "sacred taking" to prepare for the next supreme. However Fiona must take her own life if the ritual is to be a success.

Chucky Fans Cheer - Chucky 7 is Happening!

Director Don Mancini has confirmed that another Chucky film following the events of Curse of Chucky is happening! Now, although this isn't good news for me, or news that particularly interests me, but I know many of you out there shriek over this sort of news. So what you think? Can Chucky deliver some more decent thrills this time around by making possibly the best 7th installment to a franchise EVER? Well, we all know that wouldn't be hard...

The Walking Dead - Episode 4.08 'Too Far Gone'

This week on The Walking Dead brought us the mid-season finale that saw The Governor, with a parade of others welding weapons coming behind him looking to take the prison of Rick and co.. Things get a little nasty, and as the tank tears through the building, blood starts to spill and chaos begins.

Season 4 has come a long way from Season 3, and as much as I love The Walking Dead, no season so far has been able to grasp the emotional impact and intensity that Season 4 has, making for one of the best seasons yet. It is still early days, and the second half could be a complete dud, but I doubt that will happen. Let's be honest, it's The Walking Dead - all it has to do is kill of a character to get us gasping for more. Now, despite being the mid-season finale, it almost comes across as the "what should have been" for the finale of Season 3; it would have made more sense there but it works her just fine too. In fact, it works so well that I am practically hyperventilating at the fact that I have to wait until February to see what the group is up to. This is the sort of impact this show has on fans... it's horrible.
