~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

American Horror Story: Coven, Season 3 (2013)




Starring: Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Taissa Farmiga, Emma Roberts, Lily Rabe, Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, Frances Conroy, Evan Peters, Denis O'Hare, Danny Huston, Josh Hamilton, Gabourey Sidibe



Premise:
A coven of witches in New Orleans battle witch hunters and a rival voodoo coven while trying to find out who their next leader will be.


My Take:
This might be my favorite season of the show. It is full of weirdness, gore, and horrific imagery. Toss in some revisionist history like the coven all being decendants from Salem and the rival voodoo clan being headed by Marie Laveau and her rival Madame Delphine LaLaurie. Then throw in an a reincarniated ghost of an serial killing axe murderer and a group of millionare witch hunters and a it's a delicious mix of insanity that hits on all cylinders. A great cast and great writing nails it.



Rating: So Good
