SO you have
1- Murder House (I keep calling it Hell House, maybe because of a book of short ghost stories I have)
6- Roanoake and now
In the first week we get a whole lot of clowns dancing around the AHS logo for the season. I hear our favorite wide smiled (and most horrifying) clown will be back Then other teasers show up in the following weeks.. Are there any clues in them?) Clowns, and honey Combs seem to be the main symbols and to me there are some parts that remind me of A Clockwork Orange.
When I first heard that it was based on the events around the 2016 Presidential Election I thought great it’s going to be another season I don’t like. Watching the teasers, I’m not so sure; even if they are very bleak and show nothing really about the story. At least not until the trailer came out maybe a week or a few days before with coming attracting for the first episode of the season.
I think I’m going to call this the year of the clowns! First Trump is President, then Cult is announced with Clowns and Stephen King’s It gets a remake with a Skarsgard as Pennywise.
So far I think season 1 and Coven were the best, but I also liked Hotel as well. One was because of the mystery, the other actual ‘horror’ besides I’ve always liked witches and mom calls me one! Hotel was basically put, was Vampires in a way (which I have always been infatuated with since I was little!) Freak show I enjoyed as well. The AHS clown IS the reason to be afraid of them just by looks…frankly I think he’s scarier looking than pennywise! Then when he takes the mouth piece off looks like a rotting jack O’lantern.
The biggest horror of the show this year is the Trump masks. I swear I want to put his face in a tub of bleach. That is the WORST fake tan I’ve ever seen! All the money he’s got he should be able to find someone that actually has a clue. Or did he get his skin ‘stained’. Of course I am angered they have to use the stupid election as a story base. as if his b.s. speeches do not interrupt my shows, as if they are so important (most of the time it could have waited to just be highlighted in the news. Stop tweeting about him, stop giving him the attention, he does not deserve it. Its just so he can make more money on his real estate etc ventures. I’m sick of hearing people say this… You don’t have to completely delete your accounts, just stop following that person remove the mobile notifications. Half the people that have tweeted about him since (and seemed only that I have unfollowed.)
As for the ‘Bingeworthy’ award… for me that excludes Asylum which I kept falling asleep while it was on! And I was so disappointed with Roanoke at reveal and after the season ended.
I do and don’t like the season so far but then I have only watched 2 episodes. I’m not digging that it takes place basically in current time, but the Freakish clowns I am digging! Turn out the lights and watch. I do think the ‘Cult’ has something to do with the clowns or maybe the blue haired character played by Evan Peters. I am getting a kick out of Billie Lourde who plays Winter and reminds me of what Wednesday from the Addams Family may be today. (The all black, especially that outfit in episode 2) Only her hair is a grey/white color. She is quite creepy I will say that. Aside from her I don’t care much if at all for any of the other characters. I think she would be the only one I would actually miss (like I do Scream Queens and Scream series on Mtv)
Posting early and leaving room for improvement in my view. What are your thoughts on the ‘CULT’ season? Which was your favorite season?
