Ahead of “American Horror Story: Double Feature” in August, we’ll first be treated to “American Horror Stories,” a brand new spinoff anthology series coming to FX on Hulu this week.

FX’s “American Horror Summer” begins with the premiere of “American Horror Stories” on July 15, and not one but TWO episodes will be unleashed to kick things off proper.

The Ryan Murphy-created spinoff series will feature “one-hour contained episodes, delving into horror myths, legends and lore. Many will feature AHS stars you know and love.”

Today brings Episode 1 & Episode 2 details, along with a promo teaser that introduces Rubber Woman. Who is Rubber Woman, you ask? Well, we’ll be meeting her this week…

Written by Ryan Murphy & Brad Falchuk; directed by Loni Peristere.

American Horror Stories’ focus on the ghosts in the second episode is the right approach, but Kaia Gerber struggles to rise to the occasion and carry the episode. This is even more apparent when she’s opposite Sierra McCormick, who is magnetic every second that she’s on screen and largely carries the first episode. The ending for “Rubber(wo)Man” also feels unearned and a little too easy. The idea that Scarlett finds herself through the release that she experiences in the Rubber Man suit tracks, but it happens early on and the episodes circle the same idea for much of the second part’s runtime. American Horror Stories tries to slap an empowered happily ever after message on the end of all of this, which doesn’t do “Rubber(wo)Man” many favors. It only makes this experiment feel even more generic in the end. This dark Romeo and Juliet conclusion is nothing new for American Horror Story. “Rubber(wo)Man” is a satisfactory start, but hopefully what’s to come is progressively fearless and has more to offer than the retreading of themes that the series has already figuratively and literally explored to death.

Digital Spy 15 July, 2021 - 01:36pm

Meet the latest AHS players.

American Horror Stories, the upcoming spin-off of the main show, has unveiled the cast for its first two episodes.

Following the recent unveiling of some of the key players in the series, including Matt Bomer, Paris Jackson Billie Lourd, and Danny Trejo (as well as a Murder House connection), we now have a bit more info on how episodes one and two will play out.

As revealed on Instagram, joining Bomer as Michael and Jackson as Maya will be Gavin Creel as Troy, Sierra McCormick as Scarlett, Belissa Escobedo as Shanti and Kaia Gerber as Ruby.

Aaron Tveit is on board as Adam, Merrin Dungey as Dr Andi Grant, Ashley Martin Carter as Rowena, Selena Sloan as Erin and Valerie Loo as Nicole.

The synopsis for follow-up 'Rubber (Wo)man: Part 2' reveals: "Scarlett enters a twisted new romance while Michael and Troy are forced to confront their rocky relationship."

Other previously announced cast members for the new spin-off include Naomi Grossman as Rabid Ruth, Kevin McHale as Barry, Amy Grabow as Tipper Gore, Danny Trejo as Santa and Billie Lourd as Liv Whitley.

American Horror Stories will act as a weekly anthology series, with a different horror story in each episode.

American Horror Stories Promo Introduces Rubber Woman to Rubber Man

CBR - Comic Book Resources 15 July, 2021 - 01:36pm

The unusual promotion comes one day in advance of the premiere of the highly anticipated series, a spinoff of the immensely popular American Horror Story, the 10th season of which is expected to be released in August.

This is awkward. American Horror Stories begins streaming July 15. Only on #FXonHulu #AHStories #AmericanHorrorSummer pic.twitter.com/js3JR1jEbp

The clip begins with an offscreen voice shouting, "Cut," and proceeds to lay bare the actors' out-of-character interaction, which would normally be hidden by the work of film editors. The anonymous performers try to break the ice by talking about how the spinoff series differs from its parent program, with one of them attempting a clumsy introduction by interjecting, "I'm Rubber Woman, by the way. I probably should have introduced myself before. I'm so nervous."

While American Horror Story is an anthology focusing on a different set of characters each season, its plurally named derivative will take the anthologizing one step further by crafting each episode as a standalone story. Debuting in Oct. 2011, the original series has garnered numerous awards, with Jessica Lange alone earning two Emmys, a Golden Globe and a SAG Award for her performances on the show.

Created by Ryan Murphy, American Horror Stories stars Dyllon Burnside, Nico Greetham, Kevin McHale, Charles Melton, Matt Bomer, Taissa Farmiga, Evan Peters, Sierra McCormick, Kaia Gerber and Paris Jackson, among others. The series premieres July 15 on Hulu.

American Horror Stories Premiere Recap: Fans Obsess Over Paris Jackon's Surprise Turn

TooFab 15 July, 2021 - 01:36pm

One of the biggest flaws with Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk's "American Horror Story" has always been the bloat, which makes this new spinoff series a refreshing new twist on the popular franchise.

Premiering exclusively on (FX on) Hulu, "American Horror Stories" tightens up the anthology season format into single anthology episodes -- or in the case of this premiere, two episodes.

Even with two episodes, there wasn't room for that strange tendency to start throwing everything and the kitchen sink into the script to see what sticks. Instead, we got a pretty tight narrative across these episodes that never lost focus on its main character.

As much as Sierra McCormick was the clear lead in this two-part premiere, Paris Jackson clearly stole this premiere with a surprise turn that drove the narrative to its inevitably dark and twisted ending.

In many ways, these two episodes played like a movie and its surprise sequel no one ever really expected to get. But both chapters did everything right, as far as horror goes. There was plenty of gallows humor, lots of gore, screams and terror. And there was plenty of tension.

Perhaps even more exciting for fans, and appropriate for the first episodes of this new chapter in the "AHS" saga, this story took us back to a familiar location, the Murder House from Season 1.

Alas, we didn't get any fun cameos from Evan Peters or any of the other denizens who lived there, but never fear. By the end of these two hours, there were plenty of new ghosts haunting those extremely haunted halls.

Actually, we may have gotten an unofficial Evan Peters cameo, as Rubberman definitely showed up. In fact, the Rubberman suit was as much a character for this premiere as was the Murder House itself. Both tied us back to the beginnings of "AHS," while telling a fresh new story of horror in the house.

That horror came in the form of a very 2021 problem faced by many teens, and this is where Paris showed off some pretty solid acting chops. The main character across both episodes is Scarlett, a 16-year-old who's into pretty violent sex stuff ... and pretty violent non-sex stuff as it turns out.

Paris' Maya lured her into a false sense of security by making Scarlett think that she was into her. But when Scarlett started to confess her deepest dark secrets, after stripping down to her lingerie, her only true friend desperately texted her to say Maya and her "mean girl" friends were livestreaming the entire moment.

Absolutely mortified, Scarlett threatened to kill herself if the girls didn't come over. It was when they did that we learned just how much into violence Scarlett was, with a little help from the House itself (she got those black eyes blues).

Scarlett murdered her tormenters, but in true Murder House fashion, that didn't really mean much other than the fact that now she couldn't escape them at all.

Paris played both sides of her character extremely well, the shallow insecure teen ready to put someone else down (with no thoughts of real-world consequences) for a laugh or to deflect from her own insecurities, and the fake temptress and vixen she created to lure Scarlett into a false sense of security.

By the second episode, as the entire narrative shifted, so did Maya's role. She and her mean girl cohorts were still major characters, but now Maya's dual side is the badass ghost she wishes she could be, tormenting and ultimately killing the girl who killed her and the bully who really can't stand up to a bigger bully.

Out of nowhere, Episode 2 introduced us to Ruby, a new character we quickly learned had also died in the house and then subsequently became a ghost. Much like sequels to classic horror films, there was an absurdist element to this hour, as well as an extra dose of humor.

The therapist murdered in the first episode kept showing up wanting to have a session with Scarlett and her dads. We then find out that in an effort to convince Scarlett to kill herself and live forever in the house with her, Ruby brutally murdered both of her dads.

Along the way, one contractor murdered another and then the Rubberman murdered him. But they weren't gone, either, hilariously showing up and telling Scarlett to go get the materials to rehide all the bodies piling up.

And then there's all those times Paris' Maya and her friends tried to be badasses, intimidating Scarlett and on Halloween (when they can leave the house), her best friend Shanti only to become pussycats when Ruby showed them what a real psychopath looks like.

Remarkably, as the hours progressed, we learned that Scarlett is an absolute monster in her own right. She may have been somewhat justified in killing the mean girls, but pretty soon she was just killing indiscriminately. And yet, she was still painted as our sympathetic lead character.

We were rooting for her to get her freedom from the house. Hell, by the end, she was the only person left alive out of everyone (save one of the mean girl's brothers). And even after killing Scarlett's parents (for which, again, everyone took it pretty well), Ruby decided she was willing to let Scarlett go.

In exchange, Scarlett did Ruby the honor of brutally murdering her twisted "Uncle Tony," the guy who bought her from her real parents when she was young. And she came back to visit the bizarrely domestic sitcom world Ruby, the dads and the mean girls had created every Halloween.

Like every "AHS" installment, this was a strange entry that left us feeling a lot of different ways, but it wasn't nearly as frustrating as most seasons. We stayed tight on Scarlett's story from start to finish and we found ourselves rooting for her, even as that means we were rooting for an indiscriminate serial killer to be set free to murder at will.

We've no idea if we'll return to this character now or ever again, but Sierra did a great job of making her sympathetic and interesting as a lead, while also terrifying and psychopathic and surprising in her choices.

As we ramp up for whatever's to come when new episodes of "American Horror Stories" drop each Thursday, here's some of the early reaction to Paris Jackson's twisted turn and the premiere in general (both the show and Paris were trending all night).
