American Horror Story without being too obvious, is an American Horror tv series which focuses on different story lines, each as sinister or creepy as the last. Just about everyone and their cat has seen at least one of the seasons if not them all…and of course everyone has an opinion on which was the best, which was the scariest, and which went just a bit too far.
Anyway this blog is basically my opinion on each of the seasons, in the order of which I found the best, to the least enjoyable…of course each to their own. Also I should add I didn’t really dislike any of them, each of them had interesting aspects in…just some kept me more entertained then others.
First up is of course Murder House. I mean where would this season even be if it didn’t start with the murder house! This season defiantly set the bar high. I guess the thing I really enjoyed about this season is you really didn’t know what was going to happen next…with most horror films or tv shows you can pretty much anticipate what would happen but with this I didn’t know what to expect next.
Next is Hotel. Now of course most people remember this season as Lady Gaga’s debut, but this season was so much more then that! I mean for a start off we had vampires, we had the devil’s night, and of course we had the 10 commandments killer. Again with this one AHS really knocked it out of the park with just the right amount of creepiness and craziness with a hint of factual information just to keep the viewer wanting more.
The next one on my list is My Roanoke Nightmare. This for me completely threw me off. I like history, and looking into parts of the past that people don’t really know about, so straight away I knew I’d like this storyline. But I would never have anticipated the way that this season would have been put together. With the past and present intermingling as one. For me personally I thought it was brilliant, although out of all of the seasons this one seems to be rated the least with viewers…each to their own.
Asylum follows closely after. After re-watching this one recently it was a tough call to make to not put this one up further the list. However with this one more than any of the others, I was left with questions. What did the aliens really want? Why was Kit the chosen one? What did they do with him when he disappeared? I just really wish I could have a second season of this one all by itself just to answer them questions…other than everything else in the show was pretty tied up and still as good as ever!
Second to last on my list is Coven. Don’t get me wrong, I did really enjoy this one as well. Witches ✔️, Sassiness ✔️, Voodoo ✔️, Stevie Nicks✔️.
Finally last on this list is Freakshow. For me I just didn’t really engage with this season at all. I don’t know what it was…maybe I was just distracted and need to re-watch it. I just didn’t feel like it was as interesting to me as the others had been. It almost felt like a sandwich without a filling…just not very enjoyable. Except for the fact that evan peters was in it, which of course is always a bonus.
I guess the thing with the American Horror Show series and which order you, yourself put them in is really just down to which creepy shit your into the most…or at least most interested to find out more about…so maybe this blog reveals a bit more about me then it really should. Anyway I’m excited to see what the next one ‘CULT’ brings!
