All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Even if the primary pleasures of Apocalypse turn out to be based in pure nostalgia, I'm okay with that - weirdly enough, I really missed loving this show.

Nov 19, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

This season's journey to old haunts mainly reminds me of long-ago higher heights.

Nov 19, 2018 | Rating: C | Full Review…

One giant celebration of the series, one moment after the next giving me chills.

Feb 28, 2019 | Full Review…

It's clear that AHS is running out of creative steam, having used up all of its twisted imagination

Nov 29, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

'American Horror Story: Apocalypse' is a gift to the show's long-time fans.

Nov 20, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The humor kills, the cast is game, and Kathy Bates is absolutely slaying her neo-goth look.

Audience Reviews for American Horror Story: Apocalypse

    I believe this season was so underappreciated. I really found it like a return to what the traditional AHS was (after Cult and Roanoke that really "de-railed"). The way it connected with Murder House and Coven, was what the AHS universe needed to wrap up the legacy of these two amazing seasons. As the season progressed, I found it more and more interesting and got really hooked up with these one.

    AHS Apocalypse i will rate 2 out of 5 stars. The season started out great with an exciting opening episode. But falls flat with boring characters and story when they crossover with Coven and other seasons. The villain of the antichrist was creepy. And it picks up with the season finale with a shocking twist that comes full circle. This was a forgettable season that had a great concept but brought back the worst seasons of AHS to the cross over.

    And I though season 7 was bad.. I guess the cast and writers are a club for mutual admiration.
  • Nov 23, 2019
    AMS somehow keeps getting worse. This season was cheesy but not in the good way. The very heavy handed women vs. men narrative was too much 'in your face' too. The story was nonsensical, it wasn't scary at all, characters were caricatures at best.
  • Nov 22, 2019
    one of the worst seasons
  • Nov 16, 2019
    It's a great season but it feels like a Coven 2.0
  • Nov 15, 2019
    I liked it but in the end I lack a little more

    If you are expecting this to be a very serious horror series with dark themes and slowly-built tension, this is not for you. However, I came into it with few expectations and thoroughly enjoyed myself. While it really didn't scare me (though it gave my very innocent, Christian friend nightmares), I was hooked into it. This is one of my favorite seasons of any show out there because, while it may have lacked in certain areas typically strong in AHS, I was very thoroughly entertained. I continuously re-watch it and force my friends to (only after I clear up not to expect it to be similar to the Shining).

    The lasts episodes iT's so shet
  • Oct 31, 2019
    Ambitious, well-crafted, finely acted and entertaining, this season relies a little too much on flashbacks and plot twists (and some excessive developments of characters are bearable only to superb performances) but it's a coherent crossover that makes for 10 amusing episodes.
