Critic Consensus: "Pale" continues Double Feature's promising start with an intriguing installment that pushes things along in a most mysterious fashion.
Critic reviews for Pale
The tenth season of American Horror Story, Double Feature, debuted with its first two episodes this week, and as is this case with the first two episodes of most seasons, they were ... fine.
Wherever the mysterious season goes, there's definitely plenty of reasons to already be hooked.
The AHS universe thrives on interconnection and self-allusion, and this season continues that tradition proudly with the usual blend of parallels and fan service.
The humanity behind the actions and decisions made makes American Horror Story: Double Feature immediately catch the audience's attention. I look forward to seeing where this engrossing story will lead.
If anything, the vampire-tinged plot reflects the franchise's worst instincts, both in its derivative touches and gratuitous gore.
