Episode Info

Part 1 of 2. It's Halloween, and the line between the living and the dead blurs at the mansion, where two previous residents (Zachary Quinto and Teddy Sears) offer the Harmons advice. One suggestion: get rid of the gazebo in the back. Meanwhile, Tate fills Violet in on some of the house's history; and Addy decides that she wants to go to the Harmons' Halloween party as "a pretty girl."

Critic Reviews for Halloween (Part 1)

I don't know how to put this. I actually feel weird even typing it... I think... I think I liked an episode of "American Horror Story"?

Halloween night was all dirty tricks and absolutely no treats for those who lived within the house's sphere of influence.

I can't wait for the continuation of this episode, because surely we'll get more Quinto, for whose bitchy makeovers I would gladly spend many a night in the murder house. Four words, FX: undead queeny makeover spinoff. Get on it.

I think American Horror Story would be a much better show if it just got rid of Vivien and Ben Harmon.

There's an unpredictable streak in the show that can catch even the most aware viewer by surprise. Even if it doesn't shock you, it'll still be fun to see how things unfold along the way because the show is so well put together.

This episode actually seemed like the first one so far that's flowed like a standard TV show.

I really should stop trying to figure any of this out and just enjoy the crazy show.
