Critic Reviews for Holes

American Horror Story digs in a little to the phenomenon of trypophobia, a.k.a. the fear of clustered holes or bumps, while also connecting some very important dots.

This season has really set up its twists and reveals in a much better and more logical way than the seasons past. It's slowly laid the groundwork for all of this to happen, and it's a much tighter, more controlled, and enjoyable show because of it.

It's understandable if, by the end of this episode, viewers are left wanting for all the holes to be filled in.

In the most recent episode, we finally get some backstory on Kai Anderson (Evan Peters) and it all makes sense now.

Though we still have more to learn about Kai, this major revelation certainly explains his tolerance for brutality as well as his thirst for chaos. However, it doesn't make him any less terrifying.

Cult found solid footing with "Holes" and its angle focusing on the villains' side of the mass hoax, but it's best we don't linger here too long.

... we were still exuberant over this new revelation.

There were a couple of times I had to get up and walk away from my laptop as it became too much to even handle. But on the plus side, the episode did feature some pretty big reveals.

American Horror Story has a formula that runs arc-wide. We've learned who the conspirators are and now we will get to see the conspiracy.

It's been a while since American Horror Story delivered a death that was truly blood curdling. This scene was pure horror to watch and at the end of the day, isn't that kind of why we tune in?

We finally get some insight on the cult, and more importantly, on Kai.
