American Horror Story Season 4: Freak Show Review

Set in 1952 Florida, American Horror Story: Freak Show follows one of the last remaining freaks shows still in business across the country. Keeping floating, some performers, united themselves into everyday life in order to be seen by the people as a human. A new “clown killer” has come to town and that makes the community be imposed into a curfew that’s killing off the last piece of business.

The center of attraction for thelarge audience of Freak Show is the scary scenes rather than the story itself. Compare to Asylum which from time to time got lost in its own mood, Freak Show never shakes sight from television’s most important rule: cause character always comes first.So, if Freak Show against a past tale in the AHS standard, the most suitable comparison would be American Horror Story: Asylum.

As the season moves forward, more freaks come in the show, based on their characters; they are given a face and personality. Jimmy (Evan Peters) is in the mood of extreme distress, Dell(Michael Chiklis) is hateful, Ethel(Kathy Bates) is eager to know something and Elsa (Jessica Lange) is attracting. Each individual inside the show works hard as they can, just to make their character shines intensely at the center stage, as a result of perfectly with a season, and all about spotlight can work it the best. Like Coven, is Sarah Paulson’s double was the standout of the series duty work as the combined twins Bette and Dot Tattler.While the CG magnified performance would be predicted to be merely as disturbance, Paulson does a highest degree job at separating the sisters into individuals, making sure that when one speaks, it’s very clear who they are and what they living in. But while Paulson is very much Freak Show’s “ice cream characters,” the show doesn’t just depend only on her for all the juicy bits.

What is amazing is how inner wide-ranging the new season’s world is. It is different in the previous seasons; this mood doesn’t affect its story arc. This is why it makes the most well established.It is like a community within the town of Jupiter when it comes of its circus. It has also its own rules as well as regulations. However the rest of the town aware of it, and they’re hoping that could separate itself from it. That’s why they said Freak Show is not without tonal feeling.

During the time that a horror is played up, the fans of good story will not be just left hopeless or cold, and that’s the norm of American Horror Story: Perhaps Freak Show quite the best season yet. But for anyone thinking that the show’s lacked in the “horror” angle, this season they’ll find themselves most contented with what Ryan Murphy and Co. have to offer.  Freak Show will please any returning fans who’ve stuck with the anthology drama since 2011.
