Critic Reviews for Halloween (Episode 5)

While the second half of "Halloween" was woefully light on undead Quinto mincing, we did get a couple of nice scares.

Zachary Quinto, I know you're busy being Spock and starring in indy gems like Margin Call and serving as an awesome, inspiring role model for your generation, but please: Haunt this show often, will you? Because you're lighting it up.

Yes, folks, it's time for another deeply preposterous episode of American Horror Story, but this one just might be the most gosh-darn fun yet.

We have no idea how to recap a show like this because it's all jump cuts and shocks, with bits of story thrown in here and there to tie it together.

So another fun hour has gone by, one that stepped harder on the action-packed gas than any episode to date.

I know it might seem a bit odd to have the second half of American Horror Story's Halloween two-parter air after Halloween, but this episode was chilling and very effective.

I wish I knew who directed this week's episode, but it was incredibly well done, and there were some very creative shots this week.

"Halloween: Part 2" is not the most original title on the block, but it did act as a sort of soft finale for the introductory arc to the series.
