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

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.

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.

    This season 1984 was terrible and horrible writing. I was very disappointed. Please get back the other writers and producers from previous seasons. I was more disappointed when the usual casts my favorite people were not in it this season. Smh! Don't mess it up anymore. Thanks!

    AHS 1984 definitely one of the best seasons; Emma Roberts and Billie Lourd are great.

    My least favorite of the AHS seasons. I mean, it was downright boring. I didn't see any serial overlap and the serial killers were a big yawn.
  • Jan 06, 2020
    I like every elements in this season!
  • Jan 05, 2020
    This season was awesome!
  • Jan 04, 2020
    I would have liked to seen an approach towards tying in the other seasons concretely, but the homage to many slasher and quite beautiful ending for the season itself make up for the lack thereof.
  • Dec 30, 2019
    Fun and bad all at once, but I remember it more as bad. Sorry!
  • Dec 24, 2019
    This season took the series back to its roots, allowing for some great "Friday the 13th" vibes. Towards the end, it felt a bit too similar to Murder House and I found it to be a bit boring.
  • Dec 23, 2019
    this season was really good and I loved the slasher theme and all the Easter eggs and the acting. In addition to that, the ending was really good and probably my favourite one out of all the seasons as well. So yes this season in my opinion is a 5/5 everyone should try.

    It's was pretty good for the most part there where some bad parts but I really enjoyed it
