News & Interviews for American Horror Story: Coven
If Coven can stay away from scary moments that carry a too-strong whiff of real human suffering and instead serve the chills with enjoyable snark, we'll fall under its spell.
Whatever else happens in the new season, Bates and Lange will be chewing scenery together.
The sheer number of amazing actors who've joined up with creator Ryan Murphy's repertory company is reason enough to watch.
But unlike the series' first two iterations, Murder House and Asylum, Coven has finally figured out a way to incorporate feminism convincingly into the DNA of American Horror Story.
The formula works particularly well in this installment, thanks to uninhibited work by the big-name cast.
Seeing [Jessica Lange and Angela Bassett] cat it out on screen in their various banters was something to live for.
It's always hard to tell how any series will go, especially one as reliably twisty and turny as American Horror Story, but in its first hour at least, Coven offers a clear entertaining setup for a potentially strong season.
Hey, I was won over (for at least a week) when, in the midst of a mother-daughter argument, Fiona tells Cordelia, "Don't make me drop a house on you."
There are aspects of Coven that are stylish and clever, and others that are just Carrie on steroids. The cast, of course, is tremendous.
The third installment in Ryan Murphy's American Horror Story dials back the frights for more confident storytelling.
Audience Reviews for American Horror Story: Coven
1d agoI hated this season so much I forgot it was the third, my mind skipped straight to the carnival season when I thought of season three. This season is more prolific for giving rise to the insufferable internet witch trend and teenage girls arguing about which one of them was the supreme. Not very interesting and it was at this point that the show stopped being largely horror focused although it does have some dark scenes with some good brutality and interesting angels, still I just hated how melodramatic it was about some nonsense it failed to make me care about.
2d agoExhilarating, well written, scary, campy and last but not least ICONIC!
Apr 10, 2021My favorite season next to Murder House.
Mar 22, 2021This season is ok, but it lacks in actual horror. In a show called American HORROR Story, lacking in the scares can be a big turnoff for some. I still found this to be very entertaining, and it is definitely not as rough of a watch as some of the later seasons.
Mar 02, 2021I've enjoyed a couple of the American Horror Story seasons, but Coven was a disjointed, aimlessly wandering mess. It didn't have the atmosphere of Hotel, or the compelling characters of Freak Show (which had it's own issues). The characters weren't developed beyond one dimension and were picked up and thrown back down before we were given a chance to care about any of them.

Dec 16, 2020American Horror Story: Coven, tells the storie behind a modern day witch school and their inhabitants, focussing on the search of the new strongest witch, the "Supreme". Although the concept behind the season would offer a broad range of opportunities for horror, Coven ends up feeling more like a teenie show, which is partly due to the young protagonists, but also because of a lack of thrills and scares. Featuring very little gore, the season spends a lot more time on character introduction and development, than on establishing a scary or thrilling atmosphere. Likewise, due to the fictional setting, death loses a lot of fright, as people can very easily be brought back to life, just as well as torn limbs can be rebuilt. Covens plot is pretty linear, however not boring and it is fun to see the characters grow and witness the numerous intrigues unfold. Nonetheless, the setting and the overall pretty timid characters give the story a rather light and friendly feel, which does not fit too well with the American Horror Story Series. All in all, American Horror Story: Coven is a pretty entertaining season, but lacks a lot of scares and horror scenes, whis is especially disappointing since the seasons theme would have offered many possibilities. Thus, I would recommend this season to people who favour an interesting plot and deep characters over scares and thrills. You will like this season if you enjoyed The Covenant, The Craft or Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
Nov 21, 2020American Horror Story: Coven, without a doubt, is one of the best seasons of the series, with a great plot, and a good development.
Nov 05, 2020A creative way to be fun and twisted at the same time. The way they presented diversity in terms of ethnicity and physical limitation is non exploitative but very well woven to the fabric of the story. The rise of Sarah Paulson as the new Queen of AHS universe was beautifully done with Jessica Lange turning over the crown. The queens of AHS never fails to deliver. Frances Conroy's Myrtle Snow is simply worth remembering.
Oct 27, 2020This is the absolute worse season of the first three seasons
