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.
As of the first 9 seasons, Cult (season 7) is the only one to feature no supernatural elements. See more »
Frances Conroy ("Old" Moira O'Hara) is right-eye dominant. Many times you can see that she, as Moira, is focusing on the object she's looking at using her "blind" right eye instead of her left eye. See more »
In the absence of the council, as reigning Supreme of this coven, I hereby decree... for the murders of our sister witch, Cecily Pembroke and our college, Quentin Fleming... you... Myrtle Snow, are hereby sentenced to death by fire.
Delia, my sweet daughter, I have never been more proud.
Any last words?
Only one. BALENCIAGA!

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.
