"Devil's Night" is an entertaining departure from the overarching story of Hotel -- though the episode's preachiness feels out of place coming from American Horror Story.
Coming at the morbid from a fearless angle that dares the audience to be okay with even the most not-okay situations, American Horror Story is a testament to the boundaries they (or people, rather) are allowed to push.
The dinner is a real kick, especially because the eternally underrated Seth Gabel gives an already-underrated performance as Dahmer.
Although chock full of the usual AHS-style gallows humor, "Devil's Night" also coursed with dead-serious pathos and horror.
Learning all about [serial killers] and this little club of theirs isn't advancing the overall story of the season, so it just seems like a red herring for [Halloween]... celebrating a bunch of people that don't really bear celebrating.
The hypocrisy of having such a dark condemnation of our unquenchable thirst for violence as entertainment come from Hotel was as hard to swallow as an amuse-bouche that's still breathing.
A billion loose threads all knotted together and then dumped in the garbage.
Lily Rabe played an AMAZING Aileen Wuornos. She's probably the only person to make a greasy mullet and bad eyebrows look good.
This episode of American Horror Story: Hotel didn't grab me quite like last week's, probably because we spent far too much time sitting down to dinner with James Patrick March, Aileen Wuornos... Jeffrey Dahmer, and the Zodiac killer.
"Devil's Night" gets a pass due to its bizarre, one-off vibe. None of the ongoing stories hold much water on this show, but there is fun to be had occasionally in the Hotel's sordid, sinister history.
It's an interesting scene, in that these are all great actors and this is a pretty intriguing concept, considering what would happen if you got this many [famous murderers] around a table together to compare notes.
When American Horror Story wants to be funny, it can be downright hilarious and I for one was tickled pink as brain matter to spend the evening with the likes of Aileen Wuornos, John Wayne Gacy, and a gaggle of other human predators.
The first to arrive for the especially killer episode was none other than the Night Stalker, Richard Ramirez.
