American Horror Story: 1984 still managed to throw a few surprises in.

Dec 12, 2019 | Full Review…

It's somewhat ironic then that watching the ghosts of Camp Redwood murder Richard Ramirez again and again actually turned out to be the finale's biggest highlight.

Nov 14, 2019 | Full Review…

A truly disturbing plot.

Nov 7, 2019 | Full Review…

American Horror Story: 1984 wrapped up its nine-episode season...which-despite some spectacular moments of bloodshed-pulled the ultimate AHS bait-and-switch and gave its delightfully entertaining slasher story a most unexpected ending.

Oct 17, 2019 | Full Review…

That's not to say AHS: 1984 isn't a good show, but there's definitely a level of camp this season is trying to achieve that doesn't lend itself to heart-stopping terror.

Dec 13, 2019 | Full Review…

An annoyingly truncated season.

Dec 13, 2019 | Full Review…

Murphy clearly put a lot of thought into the aliens.

Nov 14, 2019 | Full Review…

AHS: 1984 genuinely ended on a happy note.

Audience Reviews for American Horror Story: 1984

    One of the best seasons! It was perfection.
  • Feb 11, 2021
    THIS SEASON IS AMAZING...people don't understand that it's supposed to be a little bit cheezy to represent an 80s slasher movie style. The ending was absolutely incredible, honestly one of the best ones I have seen in a while. I really liked how each episode slowly started getting better and better. The final episode made me tear up it was so beautifully made and was perfect. This season was also really funny and not so sexual in every single episode, which thankfully allowed me to watch it with my parents hahaha. Anyways, I recommend that you do NOT listen to all of these negative reviews because they are EXTREMELY FALSE. You have to watch the season all the way through to be entertained, not just stop after 2 episodes and write a bad review-

    wasn't so bad. thought it was better than that Lady Gaga non sense in Hotel. Ever since Hotel, I stopped being a fan. Then Prime suggested 1984 so I gave it a try. it's very and unnecessarily gory and lots of slashing. Additionally, bad screen writing and uninteresting characters annoyed the hell out of me. it was like they just threw everything together to make it look like "a plot twist" but a plot twist only works when there is a plot. This show was more like one person's really terrible description of 90s horror movies, often confused from one to another.

    I adored this season because it's a loving tribute to cheesy 80s slasher films, anything that does that correctly is great in my book! Grade: A+

    Started strong and captivating. Lost the plot after episode 5. Had a few holes on the plot.
  • Dec 11, 2020
    AHS 1984 can't decide whether it wants to be an over-the-top parody of the worst 80s horror movies or genuinely suspenseful and terrifying like previous AHS seasons. On the parody side, the characters drive the plot forward by being stupid and one-dimensional. On the classic AHS side, there are some surprisingly dark twists. Unfortunately, with such uniformly uninteresting characters, you kind of just want to fast-forward until they die.

    Entertaining , funny, bloody and great music score.
  • Dec 07, 2020
    AHS Season 9 in a nutshell: - everyone has a knife - everyone is a killer and kills everyone...multiple times...literally - First half is the most generic Teenie slasher - Second half is the usual AHS plot-twisted murder/victim role game where literally everyone ends up being a murderer - there is no horror at all...this is more like a slasher-comedy - almost no political dimension After seeing cult this wasn't really worth it. Hope next season becomes better

    Worse than the worse season, and that is much to say. Nonsense to the point it gets ridiculous. Bad script, lousy acting/directing, just stupid. Skip it really.
  • Nov 22, 2020
    This show had me hooked and was legitimately scary all the way through episode 5. Once episode 6 began I knew it was downhill for the next 4 episodes. At the end of the day, that 6th episode was pretty bad but everything after that curves back up a little bit more. Worth watching, especially episodes 1-5.
