Critics Consensus

American Horror Stories has its moments, but a lack of consistent narrative quality among installments and not enough scares make for an unsatisfying whole.

Audience Reviews for American Horror Stories: Season 1

  • Nov 08, 2022
    La temporada está bien, está es un spin-off de la serie original American Horror Story, hay algunos episodios que si me gustaron y la verdad disfruté mucho, mi mayor conflicto es que no se siente que las historias estén pasando en el mismo universo de la serie original, aparece la murder house pero nada más eso, se que es un spin-off pero creo que pudieron haber metido mas referencias y ser más realistas de lo que pudieron pasar o mínimo dejar en claro que estamos en una línea alternativa de la serie original, en un episodio literal hay un apocalipsis zombie pero no se ve reflejado el peligro que hubo en el mundo por eso ni tampoco se ve repercusión alguna en este, de ahí en adelante la historias entretienen mucho y algunas son originales.

    Fun mix of camp and horror portrayed by familiar faces. Forget the haters—if you like the Ryan Murphy universe than this will be fun.
  • Oct 26, 2022
    Not scary. Corny. Annoying. Nonsensical. The series is killing whatever remained of this declining AHS franchise. The characters and plots make absolutely no sense. The only entertainment is how comically bad the writing is for each of the epiosodes.
  • Oct 16, 2022
    American Horrible Stories. Pathetic spin-off. What a disappointing waste. Has 1 fairly good episode (Ba'al). The rest , barely watchable. Shame, really.

    Murphy and Falcuk continued to cast the young beautiful and thirsty for their widely desirable American Horror Story spinoff after its first season of bubbling queer scares and snark cast with first class celebrity offsprings but, alas, ended somewhat embarassing with Alicia Silverstone as lead star for the season finale/last part 'Lake' in terribly acting. The second instalment kicked off with first part 'Dollhouse' rather intriguingly leaving AHS fans look forward to a possible prequel for the season regular witch Myrtle Snow (a convincing Ellie Grace Pomeroy in orange afro curly wavy wig) but quickly changed the channel to question the secret of an average indie stuck by the marriage to a spiritual fupa (the one and only Gabourey Sidibe) in 'Aura'. With the third part 'Drive' starring a diabolical Bella Thone as serial nocturnal blood craving manhunter, 'Milkmaids' followed and went off the limit to redeem a sickening sex worker's gift of healing a period epidemic outbreak after giving birth to a boy from her affair with a local noble (Cody Fern's first all straight character for the AHS franchise). Vanity, rivalry, peer pressure and deadly wishes revolves the story of 'Bloody Mary' and 'Facelift', with Raven Scott and Judith Light each brilliantly leading the survival desperate character. At last, before Silverstone dived into the bottom of a dead body-filled 'Lake' in her supposedly MILF shaped bodysuit as a reinstatement to this season's cast status quo (albeit her discounted acting), episode 'Necro' found the perfect ending for a young, troubled mortician (Madison Iseman's breakthrough appearance) to exit her life and bury with her soulmate six feet under. Distributed by Disney–ABC Domestic Television since its first season premiere, let's wait and see will FX be able to renew the currently most anticipated cult show with Hulu for the Murcuk boys to up their game of perversity and continue to douse the fiery inclination of today's avid horror audience.

    American Horror Stories was an interesting entry into the AHS cannon. Not all the stories were good, but the last story nicely tied up the first season. I don't really understand the poor reviews. In every anthology series, there will be the real show stoppers and those where the writers were just lazy. AHS Stories is no different. Overall, I would say that it is worth watching.
  • Sep 13, 2022
    A lackluster series that fails to pass the torch from the original show. Tries so hard to be like any other anthology series but fails to do so due to lack of character development and creativity. I found myself predicting every scene and ending 2 minutes into each episode. Each episode builds up to a climax of unecessary absurdity. You won't see anything interesting here other than terrible performances from the obscure actors. Don't waste your time. You're not missing out on anything. Go watch some Twilight Zone re-runs instead.

    What utter total rubbish. Bad stories and bad actors. Nothing like the past years!
  • Sep 06, 2022
    Comparing this with "American Horror Story" is inevitable. For the most part this show falls flat but I would still recommend it for any Horror Anthology fan. Some of the stories(episodes) leave you wanting to see more while others drag on. All in all an okay show.
  • Sep 02, 2022
    Was really excited to check this series out since I loved at least the first two seasons of AHS back in the days, but unfortunately this turned out to be some of the worst crap I have seen in a while. Besides the below mediocre writing which felt like it was done by a bunch of horny people on an erotic online forum, one of the most irritating elements was the music. Sound and music are such important aspects of horror, yet here it sounded so cheap and full of stupid tropes that I first thought the first episode was going to be some kind of satire. Well, nope, it was just plain bad. Really had to fight the urge to press stop and go watch something else multiple times. Wanted to give it a chance but kinda wish I hadn't wasted my time.
