Fun premise, good actors, bad writing. This film seemed to have potential at the beginning but it quickly devolves into a trite action film. Ultimately it's very boring.
A film with more than the usual spoiler issues. Talking about it in any detail feels akin to handing you a gift-wrapped present and saying, "I hope you like it -- It's a thriller about a diabolical secret experiment."
I remember when Horror actually meant having someone who's possessed or a room that contains a dead girl's body or a monster ...etcBut now Horror means talking about Trump and other issues that doesn't actually concern any of us!
Not to mention the amount of +18 scenes in the show! I'd call that porn!I'm not a politician nor a person who wants to discuss "nowadays problems" I'm simply a person who wants to ACTUALLY watch a horror show, is that so hard to ask for? Having the same actors and actresses over and over again, the same house story TWICE, annoying characters, no horror at all, +18 scenes over and over again??? I mean if you called this show "american mess story" or "american chaos story" that would actually give people insight of what they're about to go through!0.0/10, what a horrible horrible show! Please don't watch it and please stop making new seasons we're disgusted
American horror story is a great if you're into this kind of horror, people that are into slasher movies/shows will probably not like this.Overall AHS has its low seasons and high seasons, every season is very different and that's why most people aren't into all the seasons.
Overall probably the best thing about this show is the casting and acting. Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates for example are incredible actors/actresses that never disappoint in this show. I personally think its genius how Ryan Murphy managed to make every season very different from the ones before but still manages to connect all of them.My opinions on the seasons;1. Murder House: 7.5/10, Great season with some real scary things, not my favorite season, it had flaws but the casting was amazing.
2. Asylum: 9/10, Scariest season of all for sure, my kind of horror. You'd expect that a season that is mostly filmed in just one building would be kinda boring, but it sure wasn't. Incredibly great season
3. Coven: 8.5/10 probably the most hated season of the show, but why? I loved it. Sure, it wasn't that scary and it had flaws but the casting was perfect. Lange and Emma Roberts were both perfect for their roles. Evan Peters annoyed me though, his role with the whole love triangle with Madison and Zoe was stupid. Probably my favorite season although it wasnt scary at all.
4. Freak Show: 5.5/10 Doesn't compete with the other seasons to me, the casting was good but that was about it. Overall I kinda enjoyed it, I guess? The ending was disappointing although Lange left the series in a great way. The only character I really enjoyed was the villain. Not a great season, sorry.
5. Hotel: 6.5/10 Not a very beloved season by most, but to me it was watchable and I dont feel like I wasted my time watching it. The casting was okay, Lady Gaga did great job acting and definitely added a great touch to the season but apart from that it wasn't a really interesting season all around. A lot of blood and sex but not the best season of the show. Overall I would recommend watching it although most people aren't into it.
6: Roanoke 7/10 Finally another scary season. The season felt like a haunted-House horror movie but longer. Sarah Paulson did incredible as the "crazy, paranoid wife". A big plot twist in the middle of the season and it left me with some confusion but I sure did enjoy this season.
7. Cult 7/10 Before the season started I was really scared I wasn't gonne like this, politics, clowns and Evan as the villian, but after watching it I actually enjoyed it. The concept was alright to me and some episodes were just boring. Again, Sarah Paulson played the crazy wife but again, she portrayed it well. Her wife was very annoying and I hoped she'd die early on but she didn't. The "different" episode with Frances Conroy was incredibly boring and didnt feel needed but sure let's forget about it. Sarah did a perfect job and her character was great, excited to see more of her next season.I love this show and I'm definitely excited for season 8 (Radioactive) and season 9.
I can understand why people dislike it but it just is your cup if tea or it isn't. Hope to see more of these horror shows in the future.
AHS is officially my most favorite horror/thriller/creepy tv show and also my most hated tv show! All thanks to season 7. Which is easily the worst season they've made. How can a show SO incredibly good create seasons like 5- hotel (and my personal favorite, season 3- coven) and then actually think that season 7 was a good idea?!
Ugh God and Sarah paulsons annoying cry/whine has been annoying but manageable throughout all seasons but in season 7, I. Can't. Take. It. Such a disappointment when you wait forever for the new season to air and it's so boring/stupid that you don't ever care to keep watching it. Stopped watching after episode 6. DONT LET ME DOWN AGAIN AHS.
Having been a horror fanatic my entire adult life, I was excited to give 'American Horror Story' (AHS) a go, after it was recommended to me by my best friend. Starting with season 1 'Murder House', I immediately became intrigued by the show. It's dark, sinister and has everything a true horror fan could ask for - the mystery, apprehension, magic, gore, wackiness - and a good cast of characters to support the story. I loved that the show wasn't afraid to push the boundaries and that it wasn't just another slasher show, which is what horror television mainly consists of. In the beginning I was completely unaware that the show was an anthology series, so was incredibly confused when season 2 started in a different setting with a new story but the same cast playing different characters. However, I fully embraced it and fell in love with season 2 every bit as much as season 1. It was interesting to start with a completely fresh story and it made a change from the other shows I'd loved in the past which eventually turned to crap because they clung to the same stories and characters for too long. There was no risk of that happening with this show since each season was a new standalone story. Season 2 'Asylum' took the craziness to new levels, but I loved that. There truly were no boundaries in what the show was willing to explore and I respected that since very few shows would do the same. I can only assume the high ratings are from the first two seasons which are very strong and enjoyable, because after that the show took a very sudden jump off a cliff. I found it impossible to engage with any of the seasons that followed and found that the wackiness that had become the trademark of AHS was ALL they had left to fall back on. Unfortunately, each time I have tried to get into a new season I've been unable to watch past a few episodes due to the wackiness overtaking everything else. In the first two seasons there seemed to be very solid and coherent stories that made sense, but afterwards I found myself scrambling to find any story at all. I was hugely disappointed with the way the direction the show went since I thought it might be the first true horror show I could sink my teeth into and enjoy. Overall, I would still recommend the first two seasons of AHS to anyone that was thinking of watching, but cut your losses after that because you're bound to be disappointed like I was.
