Trivia

The nurses in season six are based on two real life nurses, Gwendolyn Graham and Cathy Wood. The two were convicted for the murder of 5 elderly patients at the Alpine Manor Nursing Home in Walker, MI in the 1980's. They were using the initials to spell out M-U-R-D-E, identical to the nurses in season six. The two are still imprisoned with Wood to be released in 2021. See more »

American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare Season 6 Chapter 2 Review

NO SPOILERS

It wouldn't be American Horror Story without some shocking reveals, and so far the sixth season continues to be shocking and going is full force. Last week's premiere confirmed the big theme of the new season would be "Roanoke," but the real surprise came when viewers realized that the episodes would take the form of a documentary series called My Roanoke Colony, complete with reenactments. We have Sarah Paulson and Cuba Gooding Jr. playing actors playing characters played by Lily Rabe and André Holland and so on. It's all a big, glorious mess, in typical American Horror Story fashion. The first episode of season 6 I said was the best first episode out of all the A.H.S. seasons. I still believe that. It felt like the show was taking chances, going in a new bold direction, and in one episode, I believe it made up for the somewhat lackluster season of Hotel. This episode still manages to capture some creepy moments, elements that possibly relate to a previous season, some ghost action, and continues to be a positive kick off for the series.

This episode features so many interesting and well-executed plot points. A creepy child has been done so many times before. However, this episode still manages to make the innocent child sweet, make your skin crawl, and sitting on the edge of your seat, saying, "Oh God, what is wrong with these people…GET OUT!"

Here Comes the Hotstepper, "MURDE"

Yes, I realize that the letter R is missing at the end. The couple living in the house see this word pop up a couple of times, written in bright, bold blood. Maybe the show is trying to give us fans a hint. Similarly, this episode may or may not connect to another great season. Murder House had Rubber Man, Asylum had Bloody Face, Coven had the Minotaur, Freak Show's Twisty the Clown, Hotel's Addiction Demon. Every season of A.H.S. has had its own flagship monster. I am not saying they had this, because it has not been confirmed yet. On the other hand, if you saw the first season, you may remember the urban legend called "Piggy Man". Some theory for thought?

The creepy moments are very enjoyable. There was a really good video diary that furthers the story. The jump scares are effective, and the drama keeps your attention from start to finish. This is the second week in a row the end of the episode caught me by surprise. The ending leaves the viewer(s) panicked, they go to look for someone in the woods, and the episode leaves us on a terrifying cliffhanger. Overall chapter 2 earns a…

8/10!

Thank you for reading and or viewing, and I hope you all have an amazing day as always. :)
