American Horror Story: Freak Show is… well… not good. Maybe even… horrific.
No it is not the worst thing ever, but wow is it not good. I feel like I wasted an hour of my life.
Let’s just do a quick overview here.
- We open to a milkman discovering a dead body and instead of leaving to get help he goes further into the house because that makes sense.
- We have the scientifically dubious situation of the Two headed Woman.
- Jessica Lange’s character apparently lost her legs at some point and that all very sad (why you’d feel sad for a woman who’s perfectly okay with drugging and killing people is beyond me)
- The unexplained clown. A sort of repeat of the serial killer in season two of AHS.
AHS seems to have a fundamental misunderstanding of what horror is and confuses it with being as gruesome and perverted as possible.
