To say that ‘American Horror Story’ is twisted would be a huge understatement. When I first watched this show, I was left with some very disturbing feelings. As the seasons progressed, the wicked tone of the stories increased. It used all the tricks in the bag, from ‘monster under your bed’ to ‘you don’t know you’re dead’, to chill its audience to the bone. Its consistency wavered from season to season, but the overall consensus is tilted in the favor of this show. With its latest take on the 2016 U.S Presidential Election, ‘AHS’ has proved that it doesn’t shy from making political commentaries. The creators skillfully carved out a scary story from an event that has already terrified the world! The point is that this show never lacks creativity.
The ‘it’ factor of ‘AHS’ is the ability to leave its audience unnerved. Its effect lingers for a while after you’re done with a season.
