All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

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.

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

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.

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

Audience Reviews for American Horror Story: Apocalypse

    Starting with the good, Cody Fern is an amazing actor and played a very believeable Michael Langdon. Not only Cody Fern was good, but the entire cast was stellar. But.. When it comes to vast majority of the show it wasn't so impressed. First of all, the first three episodes absolutely were abysmal. I say this because the characters weren't likable, relatable, and were minimally developed. After that, Michaels character development was spectacular and he is definitely my favourite antagonist throughout every season of "American Horror Story". Mallory however, is barely accounted for despite her being a pivotal role in the coven which was extremely disappointing. Every bit of criticism I've given doesn't even compare to my hate for the end.. Which by the way, absolutely disintegration my liking the entire show. The end was rushed, quick, disappointing, and unsatisfactory. Instead of carefully calculating how to get the perfect end, it seems as though the writers just wanted to finish the show and move on. No wonder some actors and actresses didn't want to come back for the tenth season.

    This season brings back some of the best characters from earlier seasons, and I have to give credit to some of the terrific actors who were able to pull off some convincing characters. The best part of this season was seeing Jessica Lange return as Constance for probably the last time, and Sarah Paulson does another terrific job with THREE different characters who are all amazing and different!

    Witches dig themselves out of the grave and the bowels of Hell to take vengeance against the son of the Devil who blasted away the world.

    Not bad at all. Liked it way more than the previous two seasons.
  • Dec 31, 2019
    Loved it!! Excellent job of wrapping all previous seasons together! Just when I thought it couldn't get better it did!!
  • Dec 24, 2019
    A directionless snooze fest of a season that, once again fails to own up to such an intriguing premise.
  • Dec 24, 2019
    I really enjoyed this season of AHS! Bringing back Murder House and Coven, and answering questions related to how those seasons planned out, really kept my interest. I binged this in two sittings. I like how so many stories were wrapped into one! And all was interconnected. While some critics critiqued that there were some unanswered questions, I thought that is what made this season. I thought it was a great touch that one would assume that all of the characters in the first episode would remain as the "main characters", but that wasn't the case after all. This season demonstrated more brilliant work. Well done!

    I believe this season was so underappreciated. I really found it like a return to what the traditional AHS was (after Cult and Roanoke that really "de-railed"). The way it connected with Murder House and Coven, was what the AHS universe needed to wrap up the legacy of these two amazing seasons. As the season progressed, I found it more and more interesting and got really hooked up with these one.

    AHS Apocalypse i will rate 2 out of 5 stars. The season started out great with an exciting opening episode. But falls flat with boring characters and story when they crossover with Coven and other seasons. The villain of the antichrist was creepy. And it picks up with the season finale with a shocking twist that comes full circle. This was a forgettable season that had a great concept but brought back the worst seasons of AHS to the cross over.

    And I though season 7 was bad.. I guess the cast and writers are a club for mutual admiration.
