Often times, the movie that plays in your head while you're reading a good book can be better than any film you've seen before. With that in mind, I have paired some of January 2016's movie releases (theatrical or VOD), and books that are better than or just as good as the films. Let your imagination run wild!
Of all the questions we want answers to on American Horror Story Hotel, the identity of the Ten Commandments Killers is pretty low on the list. Episode 8 of the series is aptly named, "The Ten Commandments Killer" – and we get exactly that.
Episode seven of AHS: Hotel, “Flicker,” gives us what we’ve all been waiting on since the beginning: The Countess’ history.
While Will Drake is breaking ground and walls on the renovations to the Hotel, the construction workers demo through a metal wall and discover an eerie corridor that smells like death. Obviously, for our entertainment, the two men venture into the darkness and are attacked by two zombified vampires. When Iris goes to show the Countess was found – we see the first crack in her icy veneer and know she is terrified.
Episode six of AHS, “Room 33,” finally delves more into the background of the Countess and her weird obsession with the vampire children she keeps in the basement, but does little else for the overall story of the show.
The slow burn of American Horror Story Hotel is starting to catch fire. The fifth episode, “Room Service,” we start to see several things starting to unravel for the worst (but definitely for our entertainment.)
Episode 2, "Chutes and Ladders" is definitely not as jaw dropping as the tantalizing 1st, but rather delves deeper into the characters and begins to establish Hotel Cortez as a complex and independent character itself.
