The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~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.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

American Horror Story, Season 1 (2011)

Starring: Connie Britton, Dylan McDermit, Jessica Lange

To try and save their marriage a couple from Boston moves their family to an old mansion in L.A. that holds a number of secrets and a deadly past.

My Take:
Yeah, there's problems with the show. The plot holes, way too many ghosts with history in this house, and the editing can make each episode a bit disorienting. But for me, it didn't matter as it added to the craziness of the show. Each episode builds a little bit more. And the cast is fantastic.
The season finale floored me. Not what I expected. Then a few days later I read the next season will be an all new cast and location.

Favorite Episode:
My initial reaction was "Birth" because so much shit is finally revealed. But I think the two part Halloween episodes, titled appropriately "Halloween part 1 and part 2", were my favorite.

Rating: So Good
