Why YOU Should Watch American Horror Story

Why YOU Should Watch American Horror Story

My reasonings and beliefs as to why...

Throughout the many series of American Horror Story, they have been filled with unimaginable horrors, but this is the first year, that the creator, Ryan Murphey, has accurately and creatively produced a true American horror story. The divisions between the two social characteristics, the horrible and telling phobias of the main character— that inspire a feeling of childhood torment in us all— and the overall horror effect that encompasses the entire season so far, has sincerely inflicted a sensation of justified— sometimes uncomfortable— feelings that all individuals love to feel.

This year’s season, American Horror Story: Cult, incorporates real-life events that have been going on in the world and use them to build the base of the cult affiliations. The political events, including the election of Donald Trump, is used as the jumping off point for the whole season, as well as the events and issues that are dealt with within the show’s plotline. The fear from the election results, trigger the forgotten phobias of the main character, Ally Mayfair-Richards, as well as establishing the creation of the secondary characters, Kai Anderson’s organization of belittled and troubled individuals.

Throughout the season so far, there have been uncomfortable, and somewhat disturbing scenes — comprising of a gore-entitled attic scene, a physiologically terrorizing grocery store incident, and multiples of blood-splattered views that inflict nightmares of ecstasy. The use of these disturbing’s is, yes… somewhat dramatic, but are necessary to truly bring across the main theme, and the reason for this season — to demonstrate the problems with organized groupings, and fear-induced tactics that inflict and prompt erratic, and overwhelmingly obscene factions, and yes, sometimes dictated cults with inferior motives.

So far, in the season, each episode has brought a new theme and characteristic that added more shock moments, and depth resulting in a twisted plotline that is abnormally, but surprisingly and joyfully satisfactory. As the show goes on we become more invested and more attached to the characters, every ending leaves us itching for more.

Based off of what we’ve seen so far there could be two possible endings. One, being that Kai achieves his goal at achieving power and becoming an outstanding figure in the political and overall social aspect. And the other, that Ally will figure out a way to break down the cult, and that the goals that Kai and his followers possess, will be depreciated in grand value.

Overall, I have thoroughly enjoyed this season of American Horror Story. With every episode, I have fully been contempt and pleased with a sense of totality. I will irrevocably make my prediction that, this is, and will be the best season of American Horror Story thus far, that Ryan Murphey has ever created, developed, and produced. And, that the superstition that, the number seven is lucky, will inclusively and thoroughly be factual, and depicted as a proclamation for future political and social standings.

1. Sitting in class listening to your professor explain upcoming assignments/exams.

2. When your group project members refuse to do anything until the night before it's due or just show up the day of to present.

3. When you and your roommate try to cook with whatever few ingredients you have left in stock.

Because we definitely want to avoid going to the grocery store at the end of the semester if we can.

A Step By Step Of How Your Thanksgiving Will Actually Go

Every year we think it will go differently, and yet...


It's pre-Christmas, and it will be a day of stress, love, and wonderful food.

1. You wake up to the sounds of a parent slamming pots and pans on the counter top


It is time. The day has begun and your mom or dad will start yelling for you any minute.

2. You finally make it downstairs and you're assigned your tasks before family arrives


There will be the "Make this table," or the "Dust the entire house because your cousins are coming and they won't notice but your aunt sure will. Oh, and please stay out of the kitchen." You know, the usual.

3. You try to eat breakfast and lunch but honestly you can not WAIT for dinner tonight and the smells coming from the kitchen are overwhelming


What are we celebrating again? I'm just excited to eat.

4. You rush and make your way to the grocery store at least once (maybe twice) because your parents can't leave the kitchen


"You would think mom wouldn't forget anything for tonight, but I guess it is pretty easy to forget gravy when you're making a million other dishes," you think to yourself as you try to defend the forgetfulness.

5. You spend a few hours feeling bored as you wait for your family members to arrive because you still aren't allowed in the kitchen and you find yourself watching that one "Friends" episode to kill some time. 


Football or "Friends"? Honestly I should ask my mom if she needs more help but I'll just keep watching this.

6. Your family finally arrives 


It is suddenly overwhelmingly loud and you now get to talk about your life for the next few hours. Food cannot come soon enough.

7. Hours and hours seemed to go by but dinner is finally ready


At llllaaaassssstttttttttt, my dinnnnnnneeeeerrrrrrrr will be mmmmiiiinnneeeeeeeeee!

8. You have to sit through and listen to either heated debate or six conversations at once while you eat 


Honestly, I'll just keep quiet and enjoy these mashed potatoes for their deliciousness.

9. You get one look from your mom and suddenly your busting the whole table


But hey, there are worse things in life. For instance, I'm not even toughing that turkey carcass I don't care what my parents say.

10. It's round two. You've been waiting for that pie all day 


There's this cool thing called a dessert stomach where you have more room for dessert than you did five minutes ago. Isn't that great?!?

11. Your family slowly starts to leave, and the food coma starts to settle in 


It's been a great meal, even if there was some arguing. At the end of it all, it's still been a great thanksgiving.
