Dell the Strongman and his wife, Desiree the Hermaphrodite, show up at the carnival and shake things up. They were formerly working out of a carnival in Chicago, but after Dell discovers Desiree fucking “fruits” in order to turn them straight (since she has both sets of genitalia), he snaps the john’s neck and they have to leave town. Desiree’s three breasts intrigue Elsa, and the fact that they will work for whatever she is willing to pay them inspires Elsa to give them a contract. Elsa’s carnival is the last freak show, the last place they can go. Dell will bark and head up security, especially since the cops are snooping around, looking for their missing detectives.

When Paul W.S. Anderson’s next Resident Evil film hits theaters (likely in 2016 at this point), a television series could possibly follow. Variety reports Constantin Film – the company behind the long-running series – is looking to produce a spin-off show.
Company chairman Martin Moszkowicz said, per Variety, “Constantin has a lot of feature film brands and we are moving them into television. For instance, we own the rights to the book series ‘The Mortal Instruments,’ and we just hired a showrunner in Los Angeles, and our offices in Los Angeles and Canada are starting production next year on at least two or three international shows.”
The creepy television series Are You Afraid of the Dark? has found its way online. Every episode is now at your fingertips. This was brought to “the Internet’s” attention via a Reddit user who has created a guide for all of you. You can get started by clicking here.
The show was a series produced in Canada by D.J. MacHale and Ned Kandel. Nickelodeon picked it up in the early ’90s and brought it to the U.S. Now, because this was a series presented to a generation of horror fans before my time, I’ll refer to the Wikipedia description of the show. But, before I do, I wanted to give you the heads-up that The Cinefamily in Los Angeles (if you happen to live in the area) is doing an Are You Afraid of the Dark? tribute on October 23rd.
I have been obsessed with old carnival sideshows since I was a kid. I even had delusions of running away and joining the circus when I was a teenager. So I have been looking forward to American Horror Story: Freak Show for months. It delivers a lot to love, but plenty that I am sure people will hate.
Set in Jupiter, Florida in 1952, Freak Show concerns Elsa Mars, a German ex-pat who runs a sideshow. Business isn’t good, but a “freak” turn of events (pun intended) may change the tide. After the milkman discovers elderly Mrs. Tattler has been stabbed to death in her kitchen, he discovers something even more shocking. Hidden inside a dark room he finds Dot and Bette, conjoined twins who share one body and circulatory system, but two hearts and four lungs. The girls had been stabbed too, so they are taken to the hospital. Initially the girls are suspects in their mother’s murder simply because they look like monsters, but it soon becomes clear that the girls were stabbed days after their mother died.
