‘American Horror Story – Cult 7×11: Great Again’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

So, the final episode of American Horror Story: Cult has arrived, and it feels like it has been quite a journey. Will it end in the way we expect, or will there be some random twist that makes everything make sense? When Kai’s (Evan Peters) world comes crashing down around him, Ally (Sarah Paulson) becomes […]

‘American Horror Story – Cult 7×10: Charles (Manson) in Charge’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Charles Manson is a cult leader that is arguably the most entrenched in pop culture than the others. This is why American Horror Story: Cult probably saved him as the most influential on Kai (Evan Peters). The problem with this of course is that when Manson’s crimes are so well-known, American Horror Story struggles to […]

‘American Horror Story – Cult 7×09: Drink the Kool-Aid’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Last week American Horror Story: Cult managed to become a parody of itself, and became more the American Comedy Story. This week something needed to change, to get it back on track. Thankfully, with the season heading towards the end game, things began moving in the right direction…sort of. In an act of faith Kai […]

‘American Horror Story – Cult 7×06: Mid-Western Assassin’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

What exactly is horror? There seems to be a lot of discussion on that at the moment. This week’s American Horror Story: Cult is an interesting look at a show that built up a fan-base based on horror themes. With all fear removed from the “cult” for the audience though, where is the horror in […]

‘American Horror Story – Cult 7×05: Holes’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Everything is fake news, it is all a lie. What else could we expect from a show that is based around the election of somebody like Donald Trump? This week’s episode of American Horror Story: Cult is called Holes, and while Trypophobia may play a part, this week is more about revealing everything. Ally (Sarah […]

‘American Horror Story – Cult 7×04: 11/9′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

‘American Horror Story – Cult 7×03: Neighbours from Hell’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

If I was to write that American Horror Story: Cult is a brave show to air on television, I’m sure many would say “no, it just sucks.” The thing is with this year’s choice of subject, which has a focus more on the psychological, it is going to divide viewers. This is a year that […]

‘American Horror Story – Cult 7×02: Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

After last episodes introduction to the main characters, this week’s American Horror Story: Cult takes the task of fleshing out the characters, and introducing new ones. It also gets busy with reminding us that fear is this year’s theme, and that scary clowns are just a small part of it. After the events of last […]

‘American Horror Story – Cult 7×01: Election Night’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

American Horror Story likes to take tropes we see in popular horror and add its own spin. This has proven to be a success, but also a failure for fans. American Horror Story: Cult now looks at fear itself, and looks at how it is affecting the world around us…oh and yes, it also features […]
