The Freak Show gears up for grand opening

American Horror Story is back on our screens for a fourth season on 8 October. The aptly named Freak Show maps the story of one of the dwindling American freak shows and its battle for survival in 1950’s Florida. For a glimpse of the ghastly characters, the trailer gives an insight into what to expect next month.

Dinklage lands in a thicket

Gianni Nunnari’s production company, Hollywood Gang Productions, have revealed that they are developing Joe Lansdale’s crime thriller The Thicket, with Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage to take centre stage as bounty hunter Shorty. Lansdale’s gritty crime thriller, set in East Texas, narrates the story of Jack, who initiates a rescue mission to save his sister from Cut Throat Bill and his gang of violent bootlickers. There is no release date as yet but This Is Horror will bring you details of the film as they emerge.
