As you know, I’m a huge fan of American Horror Story, one of the best horror shows that is currently around. After seasons about Murder Houses, Asylums, Covens, Freak Shows and Hotels, I was super excited to find out that season 6 has in store for us!
Thought #1 – My Roanoke Nightmare:
That’s the title for this season. To be honest, at first I didn’t really know what this is supposed to mean. However, I ended up on Wikipedia reading about the history of Roanoke. Believe me when I say that it is pretty creepy: an entire colony simply disappeared in 1587. Nobody knows where they went or what happened to them.
This background promises some intense horror for this season!
Thought #2 – A new way of story-telling:
What sets season 6 apart from all of the other five season is the way this story is told. It basically feels like an interview. Several persons tell their story facing the camera. In flashbacks you get to experience what they were talking about. The interesting twist about this? There are two actors for each character. For example: there is Lily Rabe telling the story while Sarah Paulson actually plays the part.
To be honest, it does take a little time to get used to it. Furthermore, I’m unable to predict what they are up with this, so be excited!
Thought #3 – Returns and new Arrivals:
One thing I’ve always enjoyed about AHS is that the actors get to show their full potential by playing such versatile roles throughout the season. Some amazing actors were added to the cast throughout the show. So far some of my favourite actresses have already appeared in this season. There are lots of rumors about who will return aswell.
However, this season’s cast also features some great additions. The new actors also showed great potential and we’ll get to see even more of their talent!
