Last month, Ryan Murphy announced that the upcoming season of the television anthology “American Horror Story” will be election-themed. That is, this time around the horror will be about the 2016 United States presidential election. The news came less than a month after Donald Trump took office.
On Thursday, the latest installment of “American Horror Story” came to life in an eerie and uncomfortable way. The acting was superb, as to be expected when the cast includes Sarah Paulson, Taissa Farmiga, Evan Peters, Emma Roberts, Kathy Bates and Jessica Lange, and the plot is perfectly gruesome and exciting.
