American Horror Story Hotel episode 11 review: Battle Royale

American Horror Story's shared universe aspect comes into its own this week with the fun return of a Coven character...

This review contains spoilers.

1.11 Battle Royale

It took Ryan Murphy five seasons and a return to a familiar stomping ground to bring American Horror Story full circle. The recycling of Pepper last season was a nice touch, and the freak show or the asylum was a common destination for unfortunate microcephalics back in the dark days, so to have the character move from one to the other makes sense. However, there wasn't a lot of modern crossing-over, aside from using the same actors. That's changed with Hotel. Whether it's the La location or the modern setting, old familiar faces have been popping up (and usually dying horribly) within the confines of the Hotel Cortez.

Christine Estabrook's Marcie and Matt Ross's Dr. Charles Montgomery were surprise visitors,

Episode ten of American Horror Story Hotel, She Gets Revenge, works spectacularly well...

This review contains spoilers.

5.10 She Gets Revenge

There aren't a lot of action sequences in American Horror Story, but when something violent happens, as it does a lot this season, they tend to make a lot of it. The Hotel Cortez has been home to some terrible things, and it's always very stylish to behold. However, the titular Hotel is not really the centre of sweetness. Sure, there have been a few nice moments her and there, but nothing consistent, or played as straight as the reunion between Liz Taylor and her long-lost son Dennis. Throughout the episode, Liz and Iris make plans to commit suicide, but first they have to tie up their loose ends to keep from becoming prisoners of the Cortez. For Iris, that's simple: she has to cancel her magazines

Hotel is the best and most intriguing American Horror Story has been in a long while, as She Wants Revenge shows...

This review contains spoilers.

5.9 She Wants Revenge

It's been a while since a season of American Horror Story has been this consistently good, both in terms of acting, characterisation, and general plotting. Hotel is a world full of interesting characters portrayed by interesting actors who make interesting choices. The collection of visual styles—high fashion, 1920s class, 90s funk, 60s glamour, 80s rocker chic, and a whole host of other distinctive looks—add colour and depth to a world in which there are people who are trapped out of their own time and people who are not constrained by the tick-tick-tock of the clock and the limitations of a mortal time frame. The Hotel Cortez is a home for ghosts, immortals, and damaged wanderers plucked at

American Horror Story: Hotel Recap: ’Til Death Do Us Party
Well, this episode certainly took a hard left turn, didn't it? After last week's optical Ambien recap of how John Lowe is the Ten Commandments Killer, we don't see Wes Bentley or his beautiful ass once this episode. Sure, there's plenty of killing and bloodletting, but not even a single measly Seven rip-offs. For all of you skeptics out there, the crazy measles vampire children are back too. Could this be the season where all of the plot threads come together without any being dropped or forgotten? It could be!"She Wants Revenge" starts off with the Countess delivering a very interesting voiceover. She says things like, "The last 100 years of my immortal life have been a lie. The illusion of control. In fact, I have controlled nothing." Wow, that is deep. "It is time to construct something new, something durable. I will not be managed." Alright! I'm ready to

‘American Horror Story: Hotel’ Recap: A Honeymoon Turns Bloody in ‘She Wants Revenge’

‘American Horror Story: Hotel’ Recap: A Honeymoon Turns Bloody in ‘She Wants Revenge’
Spoiler alert: Do not read on unless you’ve seen episode ten of “American Horror Story: Hotel,” titled “She Wants Revenge.”

American Horror Story: Hotel” undoubtedly has countless balls in the air at this point in the season. There’s the Countess (Lady Gaga) scheming to get Will Drake’s (Cheyenne Jackson) money for the hotel; Donovan (Matt Bomer), Iris (Kathy Bates) and Ramona (Angela Bassett) teaming up for revenge against the Countess; John Lowe’s (Wes Bentley) mental decline upon finding out he’s the 10 Commandments Killer; and oh, yeah, remember those murdering vampire children? And that’s far from all.

But the aptly titled “She Wants Revenge” — an episode name that could easily refer to the Countess, Iris or Ramona — moves the plot quickly in ways that few episodes before it have. The Countess is now a century old, and she’s feeling pensive ahead of her wedding to Will,

American Horror Story: Hotel Review

One episode was provided prior to broadcast.

**Trigger warning for survivors of sexual assault – episode contains a graphic rape scene.**

American Horror Story has always represented co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk at their most luridly unrestrained, but the premiere of this year’s installment, subtitled Hotel, is a true deluge of dark decadence, even by their standards.

The only hour made available for critics (an out-of-character move for FX, and perhaps one consequence of Murphy and Falchuk’s very busy schedule this year), it’s a sprawling, over-stimulating smorgasbord of an episode, so consumed with introducing the show’s latest house of horrors, and all its ghoulish inhabitants, that in its entire 62 minutes it barely ever comes up for air. The effect is both exciting, given that American Horror Story‘s knack for highly visual storytelling has never been more evident, and a tad exhausting. Last season took viewers inside an actual freak show,

New Cast Additions, New Artwork & Official Plot For Final Girl!

The last girl standing at the end of a slasher film. I have a failure of imagination simply because I know that Abigail Breslin is set to lead us through an upcoming Tyler Shield‘s movie Final Girl. On the other hand, I have nothing against her partner in this film – Alexander Ludwig. But, the good thing is that we have some new cast members on board for the whole thing – Wes Bentley, Logan Huffman, Michael Trevino, Connor Paolo and Francesca Eastwood!

And although the shooting on Final Girl starts next month, we still have no details about their roles. Which sucks, but hey, at least we finally have an official synopsis part to share with you today, and it goes like this:

Loner Veronica is new to school, shy and vulnerable the perfect target for a group of teenage boys who lure girls into the woods to hunt and kill them for sport.
