American Horror Story is an anthology horror drama series created and produced by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. The Emmy® and Golden Globe® winning franchise is produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television
Loved it, and second to Hotel by far my favorite. I loved that Ryan Murphy literally took the real life horror show that is our current political atmosphere and turned it into this series. Evan Peters is crazy fantastic in his role and over the course of AHS has grown into an amazing actor that can do anything. It IS gratuitously violent. Very very violent. I had to look away a lot, but the overall concept was fascinating. The big takeaway/themes are the disgusting cult of personality created by Trump, and Jesus being the ultimate cult leader, and I applaud AHS for tackling such controversial material. Well worth a good binge watch.
I love the AHS series. Lately they do a great job with season but then it seems like they phone it in for the ending. This has been how I feel with the last 2 seasons. They keep getting shorter and they "give up" on the ending. And for the >$40, we will not be getting the next season. We'll wait till it's on Netflix.
Ok. So, I stopped really watching horror story after rowanoke. It was horrible. I picked it back up again and I think this is my favorite season, and that's saying a lot. Don't let the last two carport seasons deter you. This season was full of surprises and horror story in all it's glory.
Once again the creators, cast and crew of this show have delivered another highly entertaining, consistently bizarre horror show. Cult had a rough start as a hodgepodge of ideas thrown together, but as usual, these storytellers and actors pulled it off, and left me wondering what's next?
Dig it so far. The writers are reaching to the far ends of the left and right, showing the viewer a broad and awesome insight to paranoia and delusion on a personal and societal level. Most of the negative reviews come from people offended by the politics or reactions. This is kind of odd to me, I feel like they are missing the point of the season.
Honestly, when I first saw the news that this would involve politics as a part of the element of horror, I was a little disappointed. However, as I move through the series, I have fallen in love with most of the characters and am enjoying the story thus far!
It seems to me that while politics is playing a major role this season, the main focus/takeaway is not merely politics. It is how fear drives people to do crazy things. It is how one can use fear to divide people, which is what politics tend to do.
This seriously is a great season, and am looking forward to watching more episodes!
