So bad, tying sex and fear together for the easy cheap thrills.

I'm not a big blood and guts person, but I am intrigued by the psychology behind what makes a killer a killer, so if you're like me, you'll probably quite enjoy numerous seasons of American Horror Story (though there is still quite a bit of violence, just not as much as horror films tend to be known for). AHS is unique in that even though there are multiple seasons, each season tells a completely different story (with a couple Easter Eggs scattered throughout to tie the seasons together). A lot of the actors return for various seasons, though they always play a different character, which can be especially interesting since in one season they can be the hero and in the next they can be the villain. Because of this, the acting is quite stellar, and thanks to all of AHS's twists, you can never be too sure if who you are cheering for is who you should be cheering for.

The Harmon's are trying to get over a miscarriage and an extramarital affair by starting fresh in a new home, but little do they know, they have moved into the notorious Murder House. Complete with ghosts, crazy ex-girlfriends, and neighbors who seem to know too much, this series is perfect for horror genre lovers and anyone who adores the wonderful Jessica Lange.

love that it adds a totally different meaning to horror, phsyco people , and love. I recommend season 3.

I can only echo what a previous reviewer said about unsympathetic characters and over the top scenes where the directors are doing to much.

If you don't have a problem with a house haunted by ghosts that actually take up human forms and walk the day, and intermingle well with real humans, this is a good ghost story for you. The script is what makes the difference. Very engaging to watch.

Very unusual. Gritty. Provocative. Addictive. Favorites: Jessica Lange as the slimy, apathetic cougar, and the young Taissa Farmiga, whose teenage angst carries quite the penalty. On to the Season Two. FIVE STARS.

I'm not usually a fan of horror flicks, but I found this series to be scary, but not overly so. Some scenes I actually laughed at; not because they were bad, just kind of campy and over the top. Great acting. Looking forward to watching season two.

I realize that I'm not the biggest fan when it comes to horror films, but one thing I got to say is, I was not ble to go to the washroom alone🙈😋😆 that is what happens when I watch something scary.. It was interesting and creepy lol, they did a fantastic job, but I was so freaked out (since it's not my type of genre) that I was not able continue to season two, but I recommend it if you enjoy horror and mysery I think 😊
