If you like the “torture porn” sub genre of horror, then there was a lot to like about “Chapter 8” of American Horror Story episode 608, and if you didn’t… well, better luck next week.
Cecily and A.Ron think that AHS season six is really bringing the scares, even if the plot and characters are still as dubious as Polk Farm Sausage. Swinging for the fences, Murphy and Co. bring a lot of death, dismemberment, and dead Mott to the proceedings, but that’s not all. Thrill to Cuba embracing the darkside, chill to Matt falling to the charms of a shrieking bear monster woman, and giggle as characters film their own demise for really no damn good reason at all! Is this the Halloween episode, or is it next week? Who knows, but we’ll see you in seven!
A.Ron and Cecily got plenty of chills and thrills in what can only be called the best episode of the season for FX’s American Horror Story. And sure, that might be considered damning the show with faint praise, but that Pigman and Nurse killing action was LEGIT frightening. The pivot from pointless homage to genuine horror had us hungry for more. What’s going on with Agnus? Who will be this season’s lone survivor? Will Sarah Paulson out scream Evan Peters? Stay tuned to find out!
A.Ron and Cecily are thoroughly entertained by the latest installment of FX’s American Horror Story: Roanoke, “Chapter 5”. Full of gore, creepy thrills, and Evan Peter’s screaming, it’s a nice way to close the door on this hit and miss homage phase of the season, and hopefully move forward with a crazy season proper. We’ll see if we get filet mignon or chicken liver.
It’s fitting that the worst, most disjointed American Horror Story episode (thus far!) from the “My Roanoke Nightmare” season would be an homage to the worst, most disjointed season of AHS of all time. But still, we can’t help but look forward to episode six when Murphy and company have promised this season is going to go bonkers on us. Until then, we’re having fun trying to wrap our heads around the bizarre decisions these terrible people are making, squirming at some of the inventive torture murders on display, and trying out the latest Cathy Bates accents. One more week of homage until the hammer drops! See you then.
A.Ron and Cecily are a bit divided on their opinion on “Chapter 3” of FX’s American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare, with A.Ron really digging Cricket’s psychic connection with the former inhabitants of the lost colony of Roanoke, and Cecily impatient to get to the true fire Murphy is promising for later in the season. Also, lots of pigs, and it turns out? Shelby is the WORST. All this and a bunch of feedback from you fellow fans coming right up!
Cecily and A.Ron discuss “Chapter 2” of American Horror Story’s sixth season, including some crazy mom moments, spooky kid talking ghosts, the best kind of found footage (involving Russell Edgington, of course), and debate whether wicker pigs are a terrifying means of home grown terrorism, or just a way to be neighborly. I mean, who says no to pork?
A.Ron and Cecily take a peek at the super-mysterious season six of FX’s American Horror Story, which turns out to take the form of “My Roanoke Nightmare”. We break down all of the Juicy goodness on hand, give valuable life advice on how to survive car accidents and hot tub death traps, and discuss fair market value of real estate before considering lots our fellow fan’s observations and insights. How long can the show push it’s weird show within a show format? Stay tuned, and find out.
Cecily and A.Ron say goodbye to the “Hotel” era of “American Horror Story” as we cover the finale episode number 512, “Be Our Guest”. Lots of questions get answered, lots more get swept by the wayside, but overall we were surprised and impressed with the amount of emotion and heart Murphy and Company brought to the proceedings.
A.Ron and Cecily take in the penultimate episode of American Horror Story: Hotel, and it’s pretty good! Sure, there are some muddy character beats, and daffy concepts of glampire physiology, but that ain’t anything new. On the other hand, we got Iris building Donnovan sand castles in the sky, Liz drawwwwingggg out allllll of thing thiiiiings, Ramona chewing on the scenery and our favorite voodoo priestess, Queenie, and much more. All this, some stellar feedback, and an epic Ode to the Countess! See you next week for the finale!
