TV show more inspiring than five years of Hollywood horror movies combined


It’s hard to make a horror series with a good balance of story and spookiness. American Horror Story (AHS) has both and a great deal of plot twists. The storyline maneuvers itself in so many directions; it is near impossible to skip an episode and still have your brains intact. Hollywood seems to have given up on creating an unpredictable horror movie these days. Nearly every modern movie I’ve seen in the past few years is indistinguishable from “Insidious 2.” I’m glad that AHS could break the trend of horror being the most boring genre out there.
Every season is completely different, told by different people and has a certain classical horror movie theme to it. The first one was about a family living in a haunted house, the second was an asylum, the third was set in a boarding school and the fourth is set at a decrepit freakshow. Two things in common with all the seasons are many recurring actors and because of the gut-wrenching murder scenes, I have no clue how someone would let this show air on television.
If one experiences any discomfort seeing extremely violent and/or crude situations, I wouldn’t recommend watching AHS. I emphasize that because I still have to mute the T.V. when it gets too gory, and I’m an adult. Despite AHS being the absolute best, it does have the worst scenes I’ve seen on air.
It’s way past Halloween, but if anyone feels the same as I, it was too short and too cold outside. So just make yourself a fort and watch AHS and never sleep.
