    My favourite season so far. Loved it. Love Evan Peters as Tate. Not overly gorey. This one's more scary in like a mind trip sort of way.
  • Nov 30, 2022
    I really liked the first 7 episodes. But the BIG SECRET is revealed too early. Then the show feels messy and the last episode, which should have been an epic climax, just fizzles out. Compared to later seasons, this one is rather tame.
  • Nov 07, 2022
    i loved this season it was a masterpiece! all the characters connected really well
  • Oct 23, 2022
    Good story to start the antology. Perhaps too many episodes for the story, might be better handled in less episodes. Great cast and Jessica Lange shines in it. A must see.
  • Oct 22, 2022
    Magnificent start for one of the best shows out there. It's thrilling, refreshing, horrifying yet also empowered and chilling. The cast is extremely talented with Jessica Lange as standout and engine of this show in general.
  • Sep 21, 2022
    American Horror Story Season 1 is by far the best horror shows season out there, so many twist here and there that will just make your jaw drop when they reviewed that a character is dead, eg. Season 1 has a good story that keep me glued to my screen for hours but some parts was a bit slow. The jump scares was great. The acting is great. But it's cliché to think that they still brought the house despite knowing its the infamous Murder-House. AHS: Murder House is a great season and a great start to the AHS franchise

    I never did figure out that all of the characters were dead!!!!!
  • Aug 14, 2022
    At this point, this season has become a cult (in my opinion)
  • Jul 23, 2022
    Love this season and it has a really good twist in the season.
  • Jun 30, 2022
    It's like a soap opera rather than horror and lots of things don't make sense at all...
