Critic reviews for Chapter 3

There's the introduction of a new character who compensates for the camp humor missing from the series up to now, and we finally get a partial explanation for the spooky goings on in the woods.

Chapter 3 is a very busy episode, yet it still manages to be completely dull, which is sad to say about an episode that features feral children, hypnotism sex, and outrageous old-timey (Irish?) accents.

This third episode was by far the most outlandishly nuts yet.

Right now, my reason for viewing are the performances from Paulson, Gooding Jr., and Bassett.

I must admit, this has been fun, trying to figure out where all this is going, and if the idea was to keep people guessing and engaged, then in that case, Murphy and company have already succeeded.

American Horror Story has redeemed itself in the bloodiest, goriest, most knife-throwing, throat-slitting, flesh-burning, cannibalistic way.
