Critic reviews for Burn, Witch. Burn!

Perhaps we're burnt out on zombies at the moment, but we thought this episode was the least interesting of the season so far.

What's most impressive about this episode is the fact that the pure awesomeness of Zoe's chainsaw counter-attack on the voodoo zombies occurs simultaneously to a touching plot concerning the relationships that the mothers and daughters share.

This week's episode of American Horror Story: Coven took a step in the right direction by reminding us that Zoe, for all her faults, can be proactive.

I don't know about you guys, but for my money, this was the first episode of Coven that had actual perturbing moments.
