Return To Roanoke?
29 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

American Horror Story Roanoke has got to be the most fun filled, surprise, horrifying, and well thought out season since American Horror Story Asylum. My Roanoke Nightmare is not just a regular horror show anymore. It is a show within the show, within the show, within the… um, let us dig deeper.

In Chapter 6, we come across Cheyenne Jackson's Sidney; he is a visionary reality TV producer who brought a hit to The Network with My Roanoke Nightmare. He is so visionary; in fact, he is already selling the corporate suits on his next project: Return to Roanoke: Three Days in Hell. He will unite everyone who lived in the house with the actors who played them, together again in Roanoke, living in the haunted mansion during the blood moon, a.k.a. "when the sh*t hits the fan!" And this "real" version of the "Roanoke Nightmare" is already about 10 times scarier than the version we've already seen.

In my opinion, this episode was the Kathy Bates hour. She came off as funny, horrifying, and really sick! Kathy Bates' Agnes, who played Thomasin White in the documentary, is the first dramatic re-enactor to offer a talking head interview in the documentary sequel. She gushes over how playing the Butcher was the role of a lifetime but her happiness is quashed when her interviewer brings up a mental breakdown in which she stumbled through the streets of Hollywood deliriously impersonating the Butcher.

Angela Bassett did a fantastic job at directing this episode. She show was filled with laughs, scares, gore, and all that good stuff. It was a good shift for the show to introduce the "real life" people into the show. Sarah Paulson's Audrey Tindall reveals a British accent that is somewhat hokey, like she's doing an impression on Saturday Night Live; but, hey, she's having fun.

The show offers a good twist, and questions towards the end of the show. Will there be a new Butcher? Played by whom? Could it be, dare I say it... Jessica Lange! Furthermore, the twist has provided something of a genre change-up; with the chills of what we have seen before now having the added dimension of the slasher and found footage genre. With the cameras all set up and the actors moved in, a new title card pops up to reveal another major hook for the season. Everything's gone very Blair Witch Project.

It announces that everything we are about to see is merely found footage; the show was never aired because everyone involved died in "mysterious circumstances". Except for one. Who could it be?
