Flicker — Hotel Episode 7 — The American Horror Story Fan Podcast

For the seventh  episode of Hotel, Flicker, the show reveals the back story for Lady Gaga’s The Countess. And who she encounters, both known and unknown thus far in the season, is spectacular. Not only does James March (Evan Peters) play a huge role in her “coming out” back in the roaring Twenties, but the one-and-only Rudolph Valentino does as well. And who play the silent film start? Finn Wittrock.  Oh, my! All this an more…

Welcome to  The American Horror Story Fan Podcast: Hotel. This the unofficial podcast about the hit FX Horror Television show American Horror Story by fans for fans as brought to you by HorrorNewsTV.com, DocRotten.com and GruesomeMagazine.com. Now in its fifth  highly anticipated season, the award winning genre show is set to push even more boundaries and break even more unimaginable taboos with  Hotel. The theme this season surrounds the occupants and guests of the cryptic, noir-ish Hotel Cortez. Returning to co-host the fan podcast are Doc Rotten and Thomas Mariani. They are being joined by fellow Hannibal Fan Podcast co-hosts Dave Dreher and Christopher G. Moore for this season.

The American Horror Story Fan Podcast:  Hotel
Episode 7 — Flicker

Christopher G. Moore returns from the New York City Horror Film Festival just in time to help Thomas and Doc recap and review episode 7 of American Horror Story: Hotel, Flicker. Curious about what flicker means? Turns out, as we learn during an extended Lady Gaga  flashback, that The Countess was once an extra in the golden, silent age of Hollywood. She lands a small role on Rudolph Valentino’s latest class pic where she catches his eye. She soon becomes entangled in a Ménage à trois with Valentino and his wife,  Natasha Rambova (Alexandra Dadario). When she learns of his sudden death, a crushed Countess falls into the arms of Mr. March at the Hotel Cortez. Things get sticky when Valentino resurfaces…somewhat changed. Insane and entertaining twist and turns this week. Enjoy!
