Critics Consensus

American Horror Story: Cult intrigues with timely, over-the-top creepiness - and lots of clowns - despite being hampered by broad political generalizations and occasional holes in the narrative's logic.

    Edgy and fun! Always a possibility or this coming to fruition!

    "American Horror Story: Cult" Episodes 1-3 Explores the Nightmare That is Reality to Inspired Effect ***1/2 "American Horror Story: Cult" Season Finale: "Great Again" ***
  • Nov 24, 2022
    This is my second best season after Asylum. Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters are brilliant here.
  • Nov 14, 2022
    If you like Trump you will hate this season. Otherwise this season is amazing. No supernatural element which makes it scarier to me.
  • Nov 10, 2022
    Acredito que Cult é a temporada mais injustiçada de AHS. Não é um tema sobrenatural, más é uma temporada que sabe brincar com os medos das pessoas. Só pessoas inteligentes vão entender essa temporada.
  • Oct 24, 2022
    Some good performances and it had its moments, but the story was incoherent in most parts. Felt good to see it end at least, didn't have to watch any more episodes.
  • Oct 23, 2022
    A new kind of horror for the show: political. Good performances by Adina Porter and veteran Evan Peters. the new additions to the cast are not completely effective. The anti-trump story surely marked an era, yet I don't think it ages well.
  • Oct 22, 2022
    This season really dived deep into the psychological horror part. The new cast sadly doesn't deliver, but Peters and Paulson are on their best.
  • Aug 14, 2022
    Personally, one of my favorite season. Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson deliver a terrific performance
  • Mar 11, 2022
    Sadly, Cult is American Horror Story's weakest season. While I adore Evan Peters, he is simply miscast as a cult leader. And trying to tie this story into the Trump presidency was a huge mis-step as storytelling got sidestepped and replaced with preaching more than a few times.
