February 9, 2014

We finally arrive at the big event the season has been hinting at, the “Seven Wonders” witch trial. If you’re expecting a thrilling build up of tension, ambitious witches sabotaging each other or anything that’s generally exciting in anyway you’ll be disappointed. It’s less like watching the end to a triathlon and more like watching […]

TV Review: American Horror Story: Coven – Episode 12 “Go To Hell” (USA, 2014)

February 4, 2014

Despite repeating structural felonies, I was impressed with the ending to this episode. I didn’t see it coming and it definitely had a shock value that put new motions into practice. The Seven Wonders Witch trials loom, but there isn’t much preparation or focus on them. Instead, the episode prefers to tread on already explored […]

For anyone waiting for the macabre and gore to amplify are about to have their wishes fulfilled. Episode 11 steps up the suspense and blood levels to create a more engaging episode.

December 18, 2013

The season has been hinting at Witch-hunters for a while but now they finally become a prominent part of the storyline.

TV Review: American Horror Story: Coven – Episodes 7 and 8 (USA, 2013)

December 12, 2013

More secrets are unveiled in this episode and things begin to look interesting again. In episode 7, Queenie and Delphine’s friendship grows as Zoe and Cordelia attempt to discover Madison’s murderer. The turning points in this episode are quite dramatic but, as observed in previous reviews, the lack of effective characterisation has decreased their impact. Unlike previous seasons where the […]

TV Review: American Horror Story: Coven – Episodes 5 and 6 (USA, 2013)

December 5, 2013

The zombie sub-genre can produce gory fun and easy thrills but the incorporation of the undead in Episode 5 of American Horror Story: Coven is nowhere near the standard of a George A. Romero picture. The zombie encounter is the highest point of the episode and it concludes half way through. Following on from the […]

TV Review: American Horror Story: Coven – Episode 4 “Fearful Pranks Ensue” (USA, 2013)

November 7, 2013

The fruits of plot and character seeds are beginning to flourish. Episode 4 illuminates character history and sets the foundation for war between the witches of Salem and the voodoo witches. Although a step up from the state the series began with, it is still unsubtle in conveying information. If you haven’t seen the last […]

After the airing of the second episode, however, it seems we will have to wait a little longer. “American Horror Story: Coven” is set in the present day and although […]
