American Horror Story Season 6
The season 6 of American Horror Story, instantly intrigued me. I had passed through signs labeled Roanoke before, so I was fascinated at the idea of a season loosely based off of true events. The beginning half of the season was probably one of my favorites out of any season. Some seasons become almost too weird and strange for me to enjoy, but the homemade video of a man being tortured and haunted by the previous inhabitants of the house made everything feel lifelike. I thought it was really unique how the season was set up as a documentary, really showing the true sense of emotion that the "real" people felt during events. Once the show switched over to having the "actors" and the "real life" people living together in the house, it all went downhill. The show became too gory for my liking, people constantly dying at what felt like almost every second, it is not a very satisfactory feeling watching almost every single character from a show die. I did like how the show tied together previous aspects from other seasons, such as how Lana Winters from Asylum returned to interview Lee Harris, or also how Billie Dean Howard in the first season told the story of the Roanoke nightmare to help banish demons from Violet's home. That aspect I think was very well thought out and a good way to wrap up the show.
