    Jessica lange and evan peters are fantastic in this. Love it. Story is great, acting is great. If you're easily scared it might not be for you. It has some jumpy scenes.
  • Nov 24, 2022
    This is the best season of all.
  • Nov 10, 2022
    Assustadora e incrivelmente boa!!! Poderia repitir isso várias vezes. De longe é a melhor temporada de AHS para quem procura um bom terror.
  • Nov 06, 2022
    Incrível do começo ao fim. Produto de altíssimo nível que misturou drama e terror de uma maneira fenomenal. A temporada é instigante e não deve ser ignorada por ninguém que curte um bom terror.
  • Oct 23, 2022
    So far (October 2022), the most solid AHS season and story of the show in my opinion. Perhaps too many episodes for the story. The ensemble cast lead by Jessica Lange shines in it's second story.
  • Oct 22, 2022
    Chilling, thrilling and bloody. American Horror Story season 2 might even be better than its first season. The many subplots and twists make for a very compelling story. The cast remains sublime with Lange, Paulson and Cromwell as standouts.
  • Sep 24, 2022
    Lacked a consistent theme. The season packs in many subplots and twists. It's to the point where it's just overkill and feels like they're crammed in for extra shock value. Fast-paced (almost too fast or too slow at times). Overall great performances with special mention to Rabe (Lily) and Lange (Jessica).
  • Aug 14, 2022
    One of the best season of AHS
  • Jul 26, 2022
    Best season ever great story
  • Jun 27, 2022
    Lots of twists and turns, lots of shocking things that you can't predict will happen. Sometimes its really hard to watch, it can be very disturbing. Great acting, great story. I highly recommend if youre looking for something that will grab your attention from beginning to end.
