News & Interviews for American Horror Stories: Season 1
That's really what "American Horror Stories" feels like: a group of writers sitting around talking about what they've watched and listened to and trying to make a horror story out of it.
Yes, the two stories we've gotten so far have each followed the "AHS" pattern -- the compelling initial premise that leads to an off-the-rails conclusion -- but they don't wear out their welcome.
The final episode of the season summed up the entire experience: messy and trying so hard to hold onto the golden era of AHS.
If you're a fan of the series and the deranged universe it inhabits, well, good news! All of those elements remain intact, sans the meandering narratives that seemed to stretch into eternity, and made a lot of us give up on past seasons.
For those who happen to be entertained by this hyperspecific brand of narrative insanity, more of the same is great news.
