Critic Reviews for Chapter 7

This week's episode cranks up the scares and the WTF moments that have always been the show's trademark. Who knows if the remainder of Season 6 can keep up this pace, but for now it's nice to enjoy the ride.

The fact we got our very own Negan moment was just the icing on the insanity cake that was episode 7.

"Chapter 7" clips along quickly, tells its multiple stories with admirable narrative and visual coherency, balances a sense of humor with a sense of horror, and even creates some suspense, which is too often lacking in the series.

"Chapter 7" is, so far, the best installment of the season, and the season itself is the best since Asylum, bearing genuine stakes for its characters' deaths (unlike the fun, campy, resurrection-happy Coven) and legitimately scary moments.

I will say that the show's saving grace this season lies in two things: its sense of humor, and the admittedly impressive and amusingly gratuitous amount of gore.

American Horror Story Season 6 Episode 7 featured scare after non-stop scare. And gore. Plenty of gore.

Oct 27, 2016 | Rating: 4.9/5 | Full Review…

With the new gimmick revealed last week, Roanoke settled in and got back to business as usual. Psychos, ghosts, and cannibals ran amok, carving up unsuspecting, shallow victims in ways that we've already experienced.

Oct 27, 2016 | Rating: 6.5/10 | Full Review…

Gore alert: this episode contains more blood, guts and dismemberment than an 80s grindhouse movie and probably has the highest body count -- so far.

American Horror Story: Roanoke upped the fear factor, turning loose Agnes on a rampage, revealing Dominic's dark side and sending Lee, Audrey and Monet down a perilous path in hopes of making us squeal like the Piggy Man

Welp, "Chapter 7" didn't waste much time before adding a whole bunch of new characters to the RIP list.

Kathy Bates gives a tour-de-force performance as the wall-to-wall carnage begins.

The real story of Roanoke is coming to life, and already much scarier than past seasons of the show.
