News & Interviews for American Horror Story: Murder House
Viewers who like the horror genre and the offbeat Murphy/Falchuk approach, and who are willing to put in enough serious time to absorb all the nuances, will fall in love.
This gourmet junk food gives you some pure evil, and it takes some axes to some evildoers, and the American type represented has a predilection for French maids. Bon appetit.
It's a lot to process, and at times too much to take. Still, Horror Story often is a wonder.
Amusing to watch, but not particularly scary. "Creepy" seems the better word.
To Murphy and Falchuk's credit, the brisk tempo serves the multiple converging plotlines well, allowing weirdness to befall everyone in their own unique way, while producing a myriad of questions for the viewer to ponder.
Prime time is so full of mainstream pabulum these days that when a work as audacious and ambitious as American Horror Story comes along, some of us feel compelled to embrace it. Most TV shows quickly fade from memory. This one will haunt your dreams.
In truth, even many adults might not be ready for the show's frank depiction of everyday horrors that we'd too often rather forget.
Audience Reviews for American Horror Story: Murder House
Nov 10, 2020Not my genre but watched the first ep with interest and thought there were some really interesting moments and ideas. And then it just went on and on and on, getting sillier and sillier and less and less scary.
Oct 05, 2020American Horror Story: Murder House is full of ghosts and terrors, but ends up feeling a little bland.
Sep 20, 2020This is the first time I watch AHS , for a first season, this is a very strong plot and great performances , though it didn't overpass my expectations it is a very watchable show for anyone who loves getting a spook every once in a while.
Jul 16, 2020Una historia muy interesante que mezcla muy bien el horror y drama con un buen desarrollo de personajes .
Jul 03, 2020Twisted storytelling and character development make this a thought-provoking and curious first season. It isn't your typical horror, instead building to an emotional horror that can sometimes make you feel uncomfortable in your own skin. The entire season is a dreamlike montage of human nature: motherhood, aggression, innocence, lust, and longing.
May 25, 2020It was good, I enjoyed it but can be a bit boring at times
May 21, 2020Ryan Murphy & Brad Falchuk introduce a great story, establishing the series' own identity, emotion and wonderful performances.
Apr 18, 2020Good season but not anything new until the end.
Mar 28, 2020I used to be so pumped over the whole premise of ‘American Horror Story' even after finally binge-watching it in the mid-2010s when the whole Tumblr pop cult-ure scene was beginning to die out. For a primetime TV show, the thought of salacious murder, urban legends, the supernatural, and all kinds of bizarre shit in the mix stirred my fucking loins for media consumption. The program bred a new wave of weirdness for many young watchers to occupy themselves with behind the generally safe confines of this age where serial murderers and cult activities either began to die out or has gotten way less visceral. There was something so transgressive about subjects and themes meant to shock but barely rattling the genre on the surface. While "Murder House" set the tone for the seasons that followed, it also introduced us to the auspicious (and sometimes, more surprising than the plots themselves) casting the show have been known for. All the trademarks of the controversial Ryan Murphy, of course. There's a quality to AHS where the essence of each episode reminds you that it's all fiction and there's nothing convincing about all this no matter how almost compelling the plot eventually winds down to nor how occasionally good the acting is. It's a very campy horror dark comedy; I describe it like that without sounding too redundant. This may be nothing unheard of but for the most part, Jessica Lange seemed too good for this show, despite how okay enough it is as it is. Murphy dipped his paintbrush into blood and guts of pop culture references, borderline historical events and figures, and even creepypasta to create what I suspect will be a cult favourite in half a century or so, when they all look back and see what sort of weird shit we were all up to.
Jan 18, 2020Great season! I'm not a huge Dylan McDermott fan, I find him kind of petty and annoying in this, but maybe thats the point - but his voice grates on me. Other than that the cast is amazing, every story-line is compelling & there are a few surprises too. Worth re-watching!
