American Horror Story season 3 started a few weeks ago and I have felt that something has been missing, something I liked from the previous seasons. I guess there is no avoiding it, but I missed being afraid.
I can say without a doubt that so far the only part that really affected me was the first few minutes of episode one, to be specific, Mme Delphine Lalaurie’s horror show. Horrible. In every way.
And that was it.
There was no racing pulse after that, no shock, no anxiety, nothing. I cannot complain about the acting, not with those ladies leading the show. It is a royal treat in that aspect, but where is my adrenaline dammit?
Then came episode 4.
Finally I felt the element of surprise, some fear, some anger, some sadness. Thank you!
Myrtle Snow (Francis Conroy) was superb! Denis O’Hare’s (Spalding) character really suprised me, as did Josh Hamilton’s ( Hank Foxx, you freak.). Poor Cordelia (Sarah Paulson) I really hope she ends up ok… they always manage to make her my source for anxiety lol 🙂 .
It’s weird, but none of the main scary things scare me. The minotaur didn’t scare me, the zombies don’t scare me… Misty Day (Lily Rabe) scares me, Hank Foxx scares me, Spalding kind of gets to me. Still, this season has yet to give me shivers like the previous one. Does anybody else feel the same?
And no Angela Bassett, you don’t scare me either… yet.
