An anthology series centering on different characters and locations, including a house with a murderous past, an insane asylum, a witch coven, a freak show circus, a haunted hotel, a possessed farmhouse, a cult, the apocalypse, and a slasher summer camp.
Physical and psychological horrors affect a decomposing family, workers and residents of an insane asylum, a coven of witches, a cast of circus freaks, the employees and guests at a struggling hotel, a family who moved into a mysterious farmhouse, the members of a small suburb in Michigan, the surviving members of the Apocalypse and the counselors of a creepy summer camp in this haunting anthology series, focusing on the themes of infidelity, sanity, oppression, discrimination, addiction and exploitation.
During Roanoke's second half, the characters are seen using their camera-only phones for both constant recording and a flashlight - some episodes have them using their phones for days without charging them. This incessant use would wear down the battery within a few hours, even without using other apps. See more »

I do love some Ryan Murphy flash. Or, did? After a bit, though, the lack of substance creeps in. Early seasons American Horror Story (like Glee, & Nip/Tuck), especially Murder House, were perfectly spooky but there is a sense that someone gave up, moved on. The Apocalypse season, like Cult before it, has gone off the rails. Like I'd missed a few minutes and came back to a different show. Goodbye, Ryan Murphy. I'm done with you and your shallow shows.
