Oct 25, 2022Ryan Murphy seems to be at his most prolific age, but 'American Horror Story' should've stopped at least 5 seasons ago. 'NYC' has all his classic tropes, but it's now tiring and derivative. Although this looks better than the last three seasons, the impact it had at the beginning is long gone. Let's see how this turns out.
Oct 22, 2022essa temporada começou meio confusa, lenta e pouco empolgante, nem parece que é AHS.
Jan 3, 2023The cinematography is excellent, the soundtrack is evocative, the central metaphor is apt, and the want to do something new is commendable. Yet somehow it doesn't quite add up. As always it feels way too long. And the shift from horror to crime drama with a splash of horror is IMHO unsatisfying. The ending was well done, but it felt we had to wade through a lot to get there.
“American Horror Story” has hardly been known for its restraint, which made the relative lack of bloody excess in these episodes notable, with less emphasis on the horror than the serial-killer aspect.
AHS: NYC has all the Murphy-esque signatures, and more: It's sexy, it's salacious, and it's subversive—not least because of the era and the community in which it's set. Like most seasons of this show, NYC starts strong, though it's difficult at this point to say exactly what's going on.
