One giant celebration of the series, one moment after the next giving me chills.

Feb 28, 2019 | Full Review…

It's clear that AHS is running out of creative steam, having used up all of its twisted imagination

Nov 29, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

'American Horror Story: Apocalypse' is a gift to the show's long-time fans.

Nov 20, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The humor kills, the cast is game, and Kathy Bates is absolutely slaying her neo-goth look.

Nov 12, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Even if the primary pleasures of Apocalypse turn out to be based in pure nostalgia, I'm okay with that - weirdly enough, I really missed loving this show.

Nov 19, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

This season's journey to old haunts mainly reminds me of long-ago higher heights.

Audience Reviews for American Horror Story: Apocalypse

  • Aug 14, 2019
    Was this my favourite season? No. But i definitely got a kick out of a Coven / Murder House crossover. All the actors give their all to the characters they are portraying although the beginning of the season didn't appeal to me at all. With some loose threads not ended properly throughout. But the amazing Jessica Lange made an appearance, and its bittersweet at how much she actually carried a lot of AHS in the beginning and hopeful she makes more cameos down the line. I loved her in the episode she was in. 3/5

    The best crossover there was between two of the best seasons of "American Horror Story". Exciting, Shocking and Wonderful.

    It is fantastic to see the cast from the Coven . . .ALIVE! Stevie Nicks and Jessica Lange light up the stage, of course. I loved seeing the actors/family from Murder House. I love Billie Lourd; she is fantastic as Mallory. It was great to see actresses from "Freak Show" making cameos in new roles. Leslie Grossman and Billie Lourd have great comedic moments, they are so talented. Everyone does a FANTASTIC job. THANK YOU RYAN MURPHY, this is the season we were all hoping to see come to life . . .more please.

    More than any other season, this one feels like a love letter to long term fans of the show, as it ties in significantly with prior seasons, with major throwbacks to Murder House and Coven, as well as a brief callback to Hotel. One of the big strengths of this show is the talented ensemble cast, with the ever brilliant Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters both excelling over multiple roles, giving each one a highly distinct flavour as they do so effortlessly. This season is by no means a narrative masterpiece, it does start to lose steam a little towards the end, however the overall conclusion does just about give us enough satisfaction, and the season as a whole was extremely engaging and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    La mejor coneccion aun que algunos personajes le falto desarrollarse

    Clever and a gift to us long time fans, but in trying to tie the season up in a neat bow, several loose ends seem left out. It was great revisiting several past seasons and their characters, but AHS anthology style left the same actor playing multiple main characters and I found it a bit off-putting. Not confusing but distracting from the story. The actors, of course, are excellent as always with some great showings from the AHS newbies as well.

    It was great story and the acting was good. BUT where is the shocking flashbacks and demented endings!!!! That is what makes ahs stand out...hope that bring that back. And bring Jessica Lange and angela Bassett back!!!!

    American Horror Story: Apocalypse seems forced and not genuin in many aspects. You will be confronted with some plot holes that turned to be explained in a lazy way, the series also presents a lot of situations that will make you think why does this witch can do this but now she isn't capable to do that? It is interesting and has some great comebacks like Myrtle Snow and Misty Day, and for me this last one shone more than ever. The episode where the crossover between season 1 and 3 occurs is very force and honestly I preferred if it hadn't happen, it seemed too staged and not genuin, destructing that marvelous ending that season 1 provided to us.

    One of my favorite seasons.
  • Feb 27, 2019
    Granted Iâ??ve only watched Murder House, Freak Show & now this season, I have to say this season is my clear favourite. I tried watching Hotel but it scared me too much to watch past episode 3. Iâ??ve seen comments all over Twitter, Instagram, Facebook & YouTube saying how this season is delusional, bad and other various comments, but I couldnâ??t disagree more with all those comments. The storyline was VERY clear if you actually paid attention to it. **SPOILER ALERT** - The witches & warlocks are at war for power, both sides wanting the top spot and out-doing the other. The witches are being hunted to near extinction, a few being scattered around living normal lives until brought together as revealed as the season unfolds. Michael Langdon is introduced at the end of Episode 1, from there we see how he came to be at the underground outpost/bunker. Each episode slowly reveals a layer to the story, eventually leading back to his days at the murder house (at the beginning of his story) when heâ??s living with his grandmother, Constance. The episodes between 1-10 (8-9) show how Michael came to be the person we see him at the end of episode one, from when he left the Murder House, to when he was found in jail, taken to the bunker/outpost to learn and study magic and various other things of the like. Eventually passing â??the seven wondersâ??. Long story short, heâ??s become the next supreme for the warlocks, eventually landing up meeting a back ally satanic cult who welcome him as the Antichrist. Of course, a few other things happen in the timeline along the way, but youâ??ll have to watch the series to find that out ;). Eventually, weâ??ve seen how each of the characters in the bunker came to be there, with the series coming a full loop to where we see all the witches standing up against Michael & â??Ms Meadâ??, with the story following on from there. One of the characters, Mallory (watch to see WHY she plays a part in this next part), is sent back in time and is placed back early on in Michaelâ??s timeline (when heâ??s living at the Murder House with Constance), to finish the mission the witches have been working towards for the whole series. Because of what plays out as a result of what Mallory carries out, the timeline continues as If the apocolypse never happened. With the middle episodes having detailed out the timeline BEFORE the bomb hit. As a result, the characters who wouldâ??ve been in the bunker are now all safe, leaving the story to follow on two people who made it. This is where the end of the episode gets interesting, with a visit from 3 mysterious people at their house door. It may not appear simple from reading this, but this is what Iâ??ve managed to pick up and Iâ??ve not watched this show since Freak Show & I managed to binge watch all 10 episodes within 24 hours. All in all, donâ??t listen to the negative reviews & comments. Take a change and decide for yourselves. Personally, I think itâ??s well worth taking a hellâ??s chance on ;) Cody Fern makes this series for me, a perfect casting as the spawn of Satan, canâ??t wait to see his career go from strength to strength! Immediate fan for life ð???
