American Horror Stories: “Dollhouse” Review

After a lukewarm received first season, the American Horror Story spinoff series, American Horror Stories (emphasis on the plural) is back with a second season.  And its premiere episode “Dollhouse” is a refreshing step up from pretty much everything we got last year.  Let’s dig into why that is. Spoilers Ahead: You’ve Been Warned Twisted Game A young woman named Coby (Kristine Froseth) goes for … Continue reading American Horror Stories: “Dollhouse” Review

American Horror Story: “The Future Perfect” Review

After only just a few episodes, it’s honestly abrupt that American Horror Story: Double Feature is already coming to an end.  These two mini-seasons went by very quickly, and the new shorter narrative didn’t always work to its advantage. Admittedly, I wasn’t the biggest fan of Red Tide’s ending.  It was frustratingly rushed and seemingly shallow and empty.  And while Death Valley is nowhere near … Continue reading American Horror Story: “The Future Perfect” Review

American Horror Story: “Inside” Review

After an incredibly frustrating premiere episode, the “Death Valley” segment of AHS: Double Feature gets a little better in the second episode.  Its concurrent storylines are actually starting to converge in such a way that we can see the pieces coming together. 3 Presidents Walk into a Room Opening in 1963, we see a retired President Eisenhower speaking with his former VP (and future president) … Continue reading American Horror Story: “Inside” Review

American Horror Story: “Winter Kills” Review

Following an episode that saw a tragic fate for Doris and Harry losing the last semblance of humanity, the finale of the “Red Tide” half of AHS: Double Feature went all out to conclude its story.  Or at least that’s what it attempted to do while haphazardly abandoning storylines that went nowhere. Spoilers Ahead – You’ve Been Warned Grim Discovery As a fishing boat goes … Continue reading American Horror Story: “Winter Kills” Review

American Horror Story: “Gaslight” Review

Following an episode that halted the season’s momentum in a way that wasn’t entirely justified.  The latest from American Horror Story: Red Tide got us back on track.  The longest episode of the season thus far is aptly titled “Gaslight”.  Storywise, there’s a lot happening.  It’s simultaneously intriguing, while also sending a few mixed messages… Warning: Spoilers Ahead Sibling RivalryOpening with Doris giving birth to … Continue reading American Horror Story: “Gaslight” Review

Ranking Every Episode of “American Horror Stories”

After a nine season run (with an upcoming tenth) American Horror Story spun off into a Tales from the Crypt style anthology, with each episode being its own story.  American Horror Stories was initially met with a mixed reception. Its episodes could be very hit or miss (much like seasons of AHS itself).  But with the season being over (and a second already greenlit), we … Continue reading Ranking Every Episode of “American Horror Stories”

American Horror Stories: “Game Over” Review

The season finale of American Horror Stories (which will be back for Season 2) proved that this series really can’t shake its obsession and reliance on Murder House.  However, the worst part of this season finale isn’t that it marks the 3rd out of 7 episodes that feature Murder House, it’s that the narrative and plot make some pretty big leaps beyond all logic and … Continue reading American Horror Stories: “Game Over” Review

American Horror Stories: “Feral” Review

After dealing with familiar haunted houses, a killer Santa, and fertility demons, the penultimate episode of American Horror Stories deals with the great outdoors, and the terrors that lie within.  “Feral” is another strong contender, following the refreshingly good episode last week. Family TragedyOpening with gorgeous cinematography of a national park, we see a car driving up a winding road (in a shot that mirrors … Continue reading American Horror Stories: “Feral” Review
