From its very first promos, I had a good feeling about AHS: 1984-and so far the slasher homage has not let me down.

Audience Reviews for American Horror Story: 1984

    What a waste of these actors' talents. Script is a retread and vacuous. Not a single new idea: * Purgatory — already done in Murder House, Coven and Apocalypse * Not knowing you're dead — already done in Murder House * Dead can't leave — already done in Murder House and Hotel Such a disappointment. The season title "1984", gave the writers a perfect launch pad to take this season into new and interesting Orwellian territory. The Reddit theories were semi-lame, but we're still much better than the actual shows. Kept hoping this disaster would pull out if its nosedive. It hasn't. After 5 episodes, it's still completely lacking any fresh ideas, even though they were staring the writers right in the face. I'm out for the rest of the season. Two Asides: (1) Margaret is the typical Hollywood stereotype of religious people. Yawn. Cowardly writing. (2) It seems like the set budget for this season was cut by 90% ... like Lamborghini was bought out by Kia. Season rankings: 2 > 1 > 3 > 8 > 7 > 4 > 5 > 6 >>>>>> 9

    What once was a horror series became a plotless self-parody and full of humorous dialogues that turn good characters into silly characters

    When AHS is good, it's very good. When it's bad, it's this.

    They did it again. I thought this season was going to be boring, and not that good. WRONG!!!! The writers for this show are Amazing!!!! It's a must-see

    The only people who would like this season are the ones who were either too young to remember the 80s or weren't even around to remember them. So far the only thing exciting about it is the nostalgic music.

    So far the season has been pretty predictable, yet, I am still intrigued and motivated to continue forward because of this seasons setting and character building.

    Emma Roberts is amazing

    This show has gone down the hill since season 3. Had a decent season 8 but besides that, it seems like they're running out of unique storylines.

    Best season since Asylum

    It's ok and entertaining enough, but really, really stupid above all.
