Both physical and psychological horrors affect a decomposing family, workers and residents of an insane asylum, a coven of witches, a cast of circus freaks, and the employees and guests at a struggling hotel in this haunting anthology series, focusing on the themes of infidelity, sanity, oppression, discrimination, addiction, and exploitation.
Edward Phillipe Mott, Evan Peter's character from the Roanoke series, is distantly related to Dandy Mott, played by Finn Wittrock, in the Freakshow series. The connection is mentioned by the historian in Roanoke Chapter 5 when she says, "The house remained in the Mott trust for over a century, but it was always said madness ran in the family. The line ended in scandal when the last Mott died in south Florida in 1952." Freakshow took place in south Florida in 1952. See more »
In the Coven season, after Nan and Madison deliver the cake to the next door neighbor, he sucks some of it from his finger and says "Sweet" to Nan, but his lips don't budge. See more »
I found the first episode to be awesome, great suspense and has a really eerie/scary feeling to it., Definitely not your typical haunted house plot, i think the writing is very creative and very well thought out,.
The first episode is very well assembled and an impressive pilot. We are quickly introduced to all the characters, who appear to be quite likable, yet slightly flawed. Then we are introduced to a cast of supernatural beings, Who are definitely flawed,and most most definitely BIGTIME CREEPY,. Man just watch this show its overly awesome. wont be regretted. ,If you grab a lot of the great horror movies and mix them up you get American horror stories. There were quite a number of sequences that were unsettling and quite disturbingly perfect,. Every scene leaves you stunned in a way, waiting there stil and anxiously not knowing whats gunna happen next,. This show has everything and more all us horror fans need these days.
OVERALL The show utilizes both shock and psychological terror to frighten, Absolutely loved it, exceeding my expectations like nothing else. A MUST WATCH!!
cannot wait for the next episodes!
10/10 there is nothing else that compares to this style on TV,. watch it and try to disagree ;)
