American Horror Story / Season 4 / Freak Show:
Season 4 of American Horror Story puts us in a time machine and takes us back to the 1950’s to Jupiter, Florida and tells the story of one of the last remaining freak shows in the United States, and their struggle to keep it running. Personally this season issn’t my absolute favorite but it’s also not completely terrible either. This could be because Freak Show isn’t really scary, but rather gory, and when compared to past seasons it just seems shortcoming when it comes to the overall fright factor. The story line also seems unfocused, as it changes “killers” frequently, causing confusion and resulting in a less interesting story.
