Critic Consensus: The thrilling "Chapter 7" boasts heightened scares, an increased gore quotient, and multiple intriguing storylines.
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.
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.
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.
Gore alert: this episode contains more blood, guts and dismemberment than an 80s grindhouse movie and probably has the highest body count -- so far.
