[BD Review] “American Horror Story: Coven” Is Wonderfully Tacky And Incredibly Entertaining!

Last night I attended a Blu-ray/DVD release event for “American Horror Story: Asylum” at the legendary (and supposedly haunted) Linda Vista Hospital in Los Angeles. We saw some special features from the Second Season set that looked pretty in-depth (given the location of the event, a lot of what we saw focussed on the sets for Briarcliff Asylum) and were treated to a lengthy Q&A with Asylum regulars Naomi Grossman (“Pepper”) and Barbara Tarbuck (“Mother Superior Claudia”).

As interesting as that stuff was, my most anticipated moment of the evening was the premiere of the first episode of American Horror Story: Coven. It did NOT disappoint! From my review, “As dumb as “American Horror Story” pretends to be, its incredibly smart about the business at hand – which is entertaining and shocking its audience. And make no mistake, I was shocked by a lot of it.

Head HERE for the full review! And be sure to tune into FX tomorrow, October 9th at 10PM!

    “As dumb as “American Horror Story” pretends to be”,

    I always get this feeling about AHS, especially towards the end of last season’s Asylum series. More often than not, it feels like AHS is being convoluted for the sake of being of convoluted with a bunch of random plot twists, and erratic storylines. I still love the show, but yeah.

    Can’t wait for the premiere tomorrow tonight, though! The previews look great, and with Lange, Lily Rabe, and Paulson coming back plus the new additions of Bates and others, this could be the best AHS cast ever assembled.
