It has been nearly a decade of American Horror Story, and we’re nonetheless having a killer time.
As we head into the horror anthology’s 10th season tonight, Aug. 25, we discover ourselves wanting again in any respect the terrifying TV moments the sequence has given us. Between killer clowns and deadly rubber males, American Horror Story has by no means been afraid to push the envelope.
Nonetheless, with that form of risk-taking come some inevitable missteps. Sure, Lady Gaga‘s vampiric performance as the Countess in American Horror Story: Resort was legendary, however we might’ve finished with out the prone-to-rape dependancy demon from that very same season.
Season two, titled American Horror Story: Asylum, boasted brilliant characters, together with Jessica Lange because the no-nonsense nun, Sister Jude. Nonetheless, we won’t say we completely adopted the alien plot or the supposed reemergence of Anne Frank.
In the meantime, regardless of its sluggish begin, AHS: Apocalypse was surprisingly pleasant and paid homage to previous seasons. Sadly, it felt like a closing season for the sequence, making the seasons following it really feel, er, irrelevant. Sorry, AHS: 1984, it is not your fault.
