Critics Consensus

American Horror Story: Roanoke takes a surprising turn away from prior AHS formats, revisiting the deliberate pace of earlier seasons on a spookier, smaller scale, even if the true-crime format feels overdone.

Audience Reviews for American Horror Story: Roanoke

  • Jan 11, 2023
    Another great season. Very fun feel about it
  • Nov 24, 2022
    I don't understand the hate about this season. It's one of the best ever.
  • Nov 16, 2022
    People love to hate this season, but I personally enjoyed it quite a lot. I will admit that there are a few flaws here an there, but the concept is just brilliant and the execution is not horrible
  • Nov 15, 2022
    A very strong AHS season. While it's not as similar as others, and there are many different actors all mushed up into one season, it's still pretty decent. It is actually scary, compared to it's recent processors (Hotel, Freak Show & Coven), and the story-line is somewhat coherent for AHS standards. I enjoyed the twist half-way through the season, although the mockumentary was a bit overdone. Sadly, we could have seen much more Lady Gaga, Finn Wittrock and Francis Conroy. As someone who has watched almost all AHS seasons, this is definitely one of the better ones.
  • Nov 14, 2022
    This is the worst season imo. Just strange how it shifts halfway through. No creepy intro and not enough Evan Peters
  • Nov 10, 2022
    Fiquem bem decepcionado com Roanoke. É uma temporada bem sangrenta e viceral (Oque é bom) más história a partir dos episódios acaba decaindo e ficando chata. E o final eu achei decepcionante. Más se você gosta de um horror macabro, essa temporada é para você.
  • Oct 24, 2022
    Not much suspense as there were no protagonists, just random victims talking about their lives then dying whenever. Horror requires stakes and struggle, not so much in this story.
  • Oct 23, 2022
    Nice change introducing the mockumentary format, yet forgettable story. Good performances. Unfortunately the plot twist at the middle of the season is not really effective in convincing the viewer.
  • Oct 22, 2022
    The worst season to date. The concept doesn't really work for this story and the cast has no real standouts.
  • Oct 18, 2022
    Pas fan du tout de cette saison Mou long rien d intéressant
