Hollywood Crush has moved! come with us to mtv news »

Do you hear that sound? That sound like a million screaming lunatics? A million screaming lunatics who have come together as one spittle-flecked mass to howl "OH MY FREAKING GAWD IT'S 'ALLEGIANT' DAY"?! Because that is what is happening, y'all: As of today, October 22, the third and final book in the "Divergent" trilogy is on shelves. And because we cannot encapsulate our near-psychotic excitement in words, we're relying on the ever-trusty, oh-so-emotive face of Theo James—who plays Four in the upcoming film adaptation of Veronica Roth's literary series—to express all the feels we are feeling...

...when our friends are like, "Wait, you can't hang out tonight because you have to go home and read?"

The third and final book in the "Divergent" trilogy is officially hitting shelves tomorrow—which means, among other things, that Theo James will finally find out if his character gets killed off and then resurrected as a sexy ghost, as he has so confidently predicted. (Seriously, what is that about? Does he know something we don't?!)

But with millions of fans having fallen in love with the dark, violent, mysterious world of "Divergent," and with this last book promising to reveal the secrets of the fractured society that forms the series' dystopian backbone, Theo's hardly the only one to be theorizing about what awaits Tris and Four in the final installment of the trilogy. And with less than 24 hours to go until we can bury our faces in the pages "Allegiant," now is the time to place your bets about what's gonna happen.

The end of "Insurgent" left us with a lot of questions, and their answers are anything but sure: who, or what, lurks in the no-man's-land beyond the ruins of Chicago? How will the war between the factions and Factionless ever be resolved? Will Tris' recklessness spell her undoing? Will Four's past come back to haunt him once again? Will Tris and Four finally consummate their love in true Dauntless fashion, preferably in a naked tryst atop the dilapidated Ferris wheel?

What happens when the grim, eerie world of Night Vale collides with the fabulous adventures of one Magnus Bane? GREAT THINGS, you guys. Today marks the release of "The Fall of the Hotel Dumort", the latest installment of the Bane Chronicles series detailing the life and times of the most magnificent warlock of the "Mortal Instruments" universe; and narrating novella number 7 is none other than Cecil Baldwin, otherwise best known as the beautiful baritone who delivers us the Night Vale podcast bimonthly. Which means that whatever Bane is up to at Hotel Dumort in the seedy NYC of the 1970s, he's going to sound fabulous doing it.

And in honor of the hotly-anticipated seventh story from Bane's illustrious past, we've got two delightful exclusives to put in your earholes: an interview between Cecil and co-author Maureen Johnson, and a first listen to an excerpt from the audiobook.

CarriePoor, poor Carrie White. So misunderstood. So bullied. So telekinetically tormented...and of course, so creepy beyond all human comprehension! It's what makes her such a proud member of the horror genre's best and most elite group: The Society of Freaky Girls Who Do Very Bad Things.

In honor of the release of "Carrie" this week, we're showcasing a few more scary chicks from horror flicks who have captured a little piece of our heart (or, uh, other body parts) over the years. Read on for a list of ladies who, when pushed to their limits, are anything but sugar and spice.

With the "American Horror Story: Coven" premiere bringing out so many pretty young things for its red carpet, it's no surprise that our Style Superstar is one of the show's sassy witches. The entire cast brought it in such a big way, it was hard to pick just one of the students at Miss Robichaux's to award this week's honors to—but when pressed, it was the woman in white who took it home.

Emma Roberts was a show-stopper in this white cutout Cushnie Et Ochs dress that showed off a peek of her lovely abs. With a glittering triangular clasp on the bodice, super-smokey eyes and her hair swept in a wave over one shoulder, her look was magic indeed...so magic, in fact, that we won't even get after her for sporting white pumps in cold weather.

The TreatmentIf Jason Bourne and his memory-impaired cohorts have taught us anything in life, it's that "on the run, with the government after you and with giant gaping holes in your consciousness" is a decidedly unfortunate way to be—so we're seriously freaked for Sloane and James, the couple we first met in Suzanne Young's YA thriller "The Program."

The book takes place in a world where teen suicide has become an epidemic; the titular Program is where angsty young people go to be "cured" via a mysterious method that stops their depression but also leaves them as blank, amnesiac shells of their former selves. And if you're wondering what comes next for the pair, here's a hint: Just take a peek at our EXCLUSIVE reveal of the cover of its upcoming sequel, "The Treatment."

American Horror StoryWith its proud history of voodoo, vampires, and general occult goings-on, it's no surprise that New Orleans is the setting for the witchy new season of "American Horror Story: Coven"—and its boarding school for nascent witches, housed in New Orleans proper and overseen by several spell-casting, old-school glamazons, is just the kind of thing you would encounter in the city's sordid history. (Consider the existing mythology surrounding NOLA's Ursuline Convent, which is rumored to have been the home of a dozen teenage lady vampires back in the 18th century.)

But for every urban legend that the show's creators could call on to flesh out the upcoming episodes of "AHS," there's also some stuff in this year's series that's based on the cold, hard truth. Namely: three real people who come with stories so strange and twisted that you'll wish it was make-believe. And when you tune in tonight, you'll want to keep a close eye out for...
