American Horror Story: Roanoke Reviews

September 16, 2016
This is all very fun, but I'm actually more excited -- at least for now -- by the show's format.

After watching last night's episode, I'm still not sure whether this season can accomplish what earlier seasons of American Horror Story and this summer's Stranger Things did: spin all those embedded references into something engrossingly new.

It's a unique and different approach for Murphy.

It's just another crappy true crime story, but with a few Oscar nominees and a much larger budget.

The use of mystery to market the season may have been contrived, but at this point, mystery might also be the best thing going for it, too.

In its sixth season, many worried about AHS, even in its anthology format, staying fresh. But this new documentary take is a new, exciting spin, and one thing's for certain: the premiere of Season 6 looked nothing like other seasons.

Indeed, the setting is Roanoke. But where this new season might go from there wasn't clear by the end of the season premiere, a pretty riveting piece of classic horror.

Beyond the atmospheric set-up, the "My Roanoke Nightmare" was worth watching just for the initial casting fun, always an AHS staple.
