AHS Apocalypse Returns to Murder House


Image result for american horror story apocalypse

Happy Monday, fellow readers!  We are in the middle of October starting this week with the most important topic of all – the ULTIMATE crossover event that happened during the last episode of American Horror Story: Apocalypse.  This crossover episode was so memorable and answered many answered questions from the past seasons.

What makes this crossover event so memorable?  The latest episode took us back into…. the Murder House.  That’s right – THE Murder House, where this whole horrific adventure began.  Seven seasons later and we return to the Murder House where we reunite with some memorable characters.

Well, its time to get this crossover event started – Madison Montgomery and Behold Chablis pose as a married couple who wants to purchase the Murder House (for the record, Roberts and Porter would make for a perfect odd couple in their own spin-off series!).  They take over the house to start their investigation about Michael Langdon.  Once they arrive at the house, they sense the paranormal activity happening when they found out that thirty-six people died within the property.

In the living room, the ghosts of Evan Tate and Dr. Ben Harmon are discussing Tate’s frustration of being ignored by Violet.  Madison and Behold interrupt their session, remarking that they are looking for answers about Michael Langdon.  Beauregard Langdon attacks Madison, but is subdued by Billie Jean.  At the same time, we get a special reappearance by none other than Constance Langdon, the true owner of the house.

You heard me right – Jessica Lange returned!  Four seasons later and Lange returned to her role as Constance Langdon.  This was one of the memorable events of the episode.

Constance would be able to share information about Michael Langdon, only if Madison and Behold move the maid’s (Moira O’Hara) bones out of the Murder House.  And so, they move her bones next to her mother’s grave.

With the task completed, Constance discusses what has happened since Michael was born.  We ended season one with Constance discovering that Michael Langdon killed his nanny at the age of three.  But it was then that we learned that there was MUCH more to this disturbing tale.

At one point, Constance discovers that Michael Langdon had aged ten years overnight and appeared as a teenager.  After almost being strangled in her sleep, she consults a priest for help (who ended up being killed by Michael).  Constance returns to the Murder House where she overdoses on pills.

Madison and Behold then interview Ben Harmon about Michael.  Harmon explains that Michael went to him for therapy sessions after discovering that Constance killed herself earlier.  Over time, the two developed a father-and-son relationship.  Michael grew more dark over time after being rejected by Tate.  Not only did Ben witness Michael mutilating the ghost of Elizabeth Short, but he also murdered two residents (even going as far as expelling their spirits from existence!).  It was then that Ben ended his therapy sessions with Michael.

Now we move onto the final character – Vivien Harmon.  Vivien explained that a group of Satanists arrived at the house; the group consisted of Church of Satanists founder Anton LaVey, Miriam Mead, and another cardinal.  Michael consumes a girl’s heart for the Black Mass ceremony.  A demonic shadow appeared and Michael announced that he is one with his “Father”.  She explains that Michael is not a warlock, but is actually the Antichrist.

Here’s where things get crazy – Ben was not the father, Tate wasn’t even the father; Michael Langdon was conceived by the evil within the Murder House.  Tate Langdon was simply a mere vessel controlled by the darkness within.

Remember when the Rubber Man returned back in episode two?  That shocking fact may explain how the Rubber Man came back.  Who knows, there may be another answer hidden within another episode in the future.

And that ends the AHS event of the century.  We returned back to the Murder House to find out clues for the future episodes.  Who knows what other characters will be returning this week.  Either way, MakeSandcastlesNotWar will be here with full coverage.

Things have been spooky around MakeSandcastlesNotWar lately.  Another shocking crossover on American Horror Story: Apocalypse here, another Halloween sequel there.  There was also that intriguing artwork that I found around Salem a.k.a. Witch City.  Lots of horror-themed topics on this Halloween month.  This is the month where both TV series and movies move towards the horror genre.

And it will continue that way for quite some time.  Next week’s episode of AHS will feature a shocking full-on crossover to season one where Madison Montgomery and Behold Chablis will enter the Murder House, the place where it ALL began.  What kind of dark and disturbing history does Michael Langdon have?  Who will make their return in the Murder House?  Will we see other characters returning from Coven?  All of our burning questions will be answered next Wednesday.

But if you thought that’s the only horror series out this year, you haven’t seen NOTHING yet.  A special horror series was recently released on Netflix that was based on a classic Gothic novel (hint: it was already discussed during the Summer Reading series this year!).  You’ll have to wait until next week to see what unfolds here.  One thing is for certain – it looks like American Horror Story: Apocalypse isn’t the only twisted horror series being discussed here at MakeSandcastlesNotWar.

Two infamous horrific series discussed in under one week.  Halloween month will continue with even more spookiness than ever.  Surely there isn’t as much PR nightmares going around, but these series will surely be a treat.

Enjoy some more insightful quotes for now, but our Halloween-themed posts will be returning real soon.

Halloween – 40 Years Later

October 25th, 1978 – Halloween was released in theaters nationwide.  It was Jamie Lee Curtis’s breakout role in Hollywood that would land her many roles for years to come.  Halloween is the horrific tale about the infamous serial killer Michael Myers.  Myers murdered his 17-year-old sister Judith when he was six years old, only to be sentenced and locked away for 15 years.

On October 30th, 1978, Michael escaped from the sanitarium and steals Dr. Sam Loomis’s car in the process.  He returns back to his home in Haddonfield where he kills a mechanic for his uniform and steals the white mask, rope, and knives from a local hardware store.

The next day, he starts stalking his next victim Laurie Strode.  Strode, as well as her friends around high school, become prey to Michael Myers throughout the film.  It’s a classic slasher horror film that would be remembered for decades.

A few years later, Halloween II was released in 1981.  Halloween II was one of many sequels released for their audiences.  The list of Halloween films include:

  • Halloween III: Season of the Witch
  • Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers
  • Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers
  • Halloween : The Curse of Michael Myers
  • Halloween H20: 20 Years Later
  • Halloween: Resurrection
  • Halloween (2007)
  • Halloween II (2009)

Forty years and nine films later, we are in for a special treat this year.  This year so happens to be the 40th anniversary of the original release of the film.  To celebrate this special occasion, we are presented with a special installment of Halloween.

That’s right horror fans – an eleventh installment of Halloween is coming this year!  Halloween will be released this Friday (October 19th), starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Nick Castle as they reprise their roles as Laurie Strode and Michael Myers.  Nine years since the last Halloween film was released and the battle still reigns on.

This intriguing franchise marketing miracle is an ode to one of the greatest horror film series of all time.  Halloween graced us with notable serial killer Michael Myers, who continues to be resurrected in every sequel.  No matter how many times they try to stop him, Myers goes on with his killing spree.  There is no character, no matter what decade or sequel they were in, that is able to withstand the monster that is Michael Myers (except for Laurie Strode!).

After creeping us out for forty years, it’s only fitting that Michael Myers returns to the theaters.  Who knows how this next battle (or possibly last!) will play out in the next installment of Halloween.  Laurie Strode vs. Michael Myers – it all goes down this Friday on October 19th.

AHS Coven/Apocalypse Crossover

Alright you guys… last week’s episode of American Horror Story: Apocalypse was just absolutely crazy…in the most awesome way.  Many of the scenes were so jaw-dropping that I could barely keep my mouth closed.  Just when I thought I knew how this story would go down; but oh no, in the true American Horror Story fashion, I was left with a MAJOR plot twist in the end.  We aren’t even halfway through the series and the story is being tugged at a completely different direction.

So here we go – Langdon shows his true demonic form to Mallory and she shoots flames from a fire place.  Brock guns down a cannibalistic tribe in a nuclear wasteland and sets forth underneath a horse-drawn carriage nearby.  The carriage was delivering apples to Outpost 3, which would later be injected with venom (I’m getting to that in just a bit!).

Brock infiltrates Outpost 3 and attends Venable’s Halloween masquerade ball.  Coco seduces a cloaked figure back into her bedroom (who she presumes to be Langdon).  It is revealed that Brock was the cloaked figure and he stabs Coco in the forehead.

Now back to those apples – Venable injects the apples with snake venom.  The Outpost 3 guests bob for the poisonous apples.  After each character got their apple, Venable instructs them to eat the apple simultaneously.  Each of the guests succumb to the poison, killing off each member in the end.  Mead then shoots Venable under Langdon’s order.

But wait – it gets even BETTER.  Three of the witches from American Horror Story: Coven – Madison Montgomery, Cordelia Goode, and Myrtle Snow – descend upon Outpost 3.  Cordelia resurrects Dinah, Coco, and Mallory.  Madison goes up to Coco with her infamous line:

And what a surprise it was!  The Coven segment of the Murder House/Coven crossover has officially begun.  It will be interesting to see what lies ahead for Michael Langdon.

This episode was chock full of surprises – Madison’s return being one of them.  We will have to see what the Coven witches have been up to lately on the next episode tomorrow.
