The first American Horror Story, called “Murder House” was extremely popular, with “Freak Show” close behind. But during “Hotel” and “Roanoake,” the series seems to have been losing fans. When I asked people about the upcoming “Cult,” most of them said they had given up on American Horror Story.
I have to beg all of you to give American Horror Story another chance. I am basing this on one episode, it could still all fizzle out mid-season. But we are talking about one awesome episode! Set in the 2016 post-election zeitgeist of fear, the show runs rampant with the possible danger of Trump’s brazen followers. And clowns. The clown scenes are both hilarious and frightening. Pennywise has got a lot to live up to. The show even crosses seasons, because what would a clown season be without Twisty?
Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters are at the top of their game as diametrically opposed archetypes; the terrifying and the terrorized. Yet pre-season marketing has suggested that the two will share “a love story for the ages.” So intriguing. Billie Lourde is mesmerizing as the seemingly rational yet totally fucked-up and evil Winter Anderson. So catch up with AHS:Cult ON DEMAND and set your for DVR for FX Tuesday nights at 10pm or the suspense will kill you.
