Worst One Yet
2 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK so AHS walls the line across horror, comedy and soft core sex. It's a mess because I don't know what to make of it. In this one we learn who the gimp is.

The gay Spock is back and so we move into an S&M theme. And plenty of gay bashing. Also we learn more about the spirits who walk the house and it's not all that interesting.

The problem with this show is the writing. The characters are so poorly written that they are laughable.

It's a mad house where nothing makes sense at all and you cannot suspend disbelief because it's all so silly. This has to be the worst episode yet.
