This must be the Season of the Witch. Not only did the brilliantly warped minds behind American Horror Story, Ryan and Murphy and Brad Falchuk, create a Coven of them for Season 3, but they also made the witchiest woman of them all part of it. And Stevie Nicks couldn't be more delighted.
After the last two episodes of "American Horror Story: Coven" nearly lulled me into a coma (except for the always-stellar work of the veteran cast), finally, finally, everything is starting to make sense.
Death has become so inconsequential on "American Horror Story: Coven" that nearly everyone who was killed off in the past is now walking the earth with the living. The way things are going, it doesn't seem like a good thing.
The last thing we need on "American Horror Story: Coven" is another character, but our non-wish (as is usually the case) is Ryan Murphy's command.
The overarching theme in tonight's episode is the relationship (or lack thereof) between mothers and daughters. What makes a good mother? Is it ever too late to mend fences? On 'AHS,' it might be.
When American Horror Story chose New Orleans as the setting for the 3rd season, they decided to go balls-out Southern Gothic. From slave-torturing immortal bitches to a coven of misfit belles trying to control their powers and wanton desires.
It's pretty much an all-out war in New Orleans. At the very least there's a big one brewing, and this week's episode pits multiple warring factions against each other: Fiona vs. Delia, Fiona vs. The Council, Fiona vs. Marie (OK, so it's mostly everyone against Fiona), and the voodoo witches vs. the Robichaux witches.
So why do we care so much about the witch at this particular cultural moment? Perhaps its because we seem obsessed with the "mysteries of womanhood."
When Halloween rolls around, you probably have some of your favorite scary movies already in your library. Here's a roundup of new releases: spruced up editions of classics and new ones hoping to join them in your Halloween queue.
The obvious focus of "American Horror Story" this season is aging and the passage of time. This episode in particular zooms in on "replacements," or being replaced. Never a good feeling.
I've become that house. The house on Halloween that doesn't want to play along anymore. The house on your street owned by the older parents who don't find Halloween nearly as amusing because their shuttered, dark hearts won't allow for such amusement anymore.
This is a show that is often as problematic as it is delightfully bizarre, and navigating the thin line between being critical of its faults and being entertained by its eccentricities is perhaps the most difficult part about being a fan.
Literally every fibre of my being is fighting against the urge to write this, but here it is: There is an entire segment of "American Horror Story: Coven" that isn't quite working.
So kicks off the Season of the Witch with Wednesday night's premier of American Horror Story: Coven, aptly christened 'Bitchcraft.' Within the first s...
We're most definitely not at Briarcliff anymore. Unlike its faster-paced, frenetic predecessor "American Horror Story: Asylum," "American Horror Story: Coven" is a slow burn.
Something wicked Wednesday comes. It's the season three premier of Ryan Murphy's FX hit show-or miniseries, if you believe the Emmy's-American Horror...
