Thoughts? I must say I'm a little bit on the fence. I felt like it might turn out to be pretty good and I am really liking the references to 80s horror flicks. There's a lot I liked about it though.

I recently expanded my cable so it was the first time watching without waiting for the dvd to come out.  I thought it was pretty awful.  The writing was silly and the acting awful.  The bad wigs made the majority of the cast laughable and look way older than they were suppose to be.  It's going to be a struggle for me to remember it comes on at 10:00 and interesting enough to make myself stay up for it.

I think they were trying to have it both ways. They seemed to be poking fun at teen slasher movies while trying to be suspenseful at the same time. I think the poking fun aspect could have been taken much further. I was expecting something a little more original.

It’s pretty terrible. Another example of Murphy having a good idea and not knowing what to do with it. He’s going to make an old fashioned slasher film that usually runs 80 something minutes and spread it out over 10 hours. What could go wrong?!

I feel like every 80s horror franchise has already done their own sequel exploring the twenty-years-later scenario. And considering none of the central, current day characters was killed in the first episode, I feel like they're really going to drag this out.

This  last episode was pretty terrible. I watched it twice and I still don't understand what the scene with Richard Ramirez and Maggie was about.

I'm with Jordan in that I don't know if this is even a "hate watch" going forward. It's just so incredibly awful, from the writing to the acting to the design. I really wonder if either Emma Roberts or Billie Lourd would have a career without their family connections, and I have to wonder what some of these others did to trick people into continuing to hire them (Leslie Grossman, I'm looking at you here).

Not my favorite season, and will probably be my last...just not what it once was

Stopped half way through the 2nd episode. It's gone all camp, no horror. And we've somehow managed to trade Jessica Lange for Mary Cherry from Popular. Good bye.

Well, tonight's episode was a little better, but still silly and the acting hammy.  When Gus Kenworthy is one of the better actors (and I'm being kind), you know you're in trouble.  But can't deny the episode wasn't bloody.  Scary, it wasn't.  I just don't see how they are going to drag out this plotline for six more episodes.

I agree with you about this episode being an improvement, which isn't saying much. maybe they'll do what they did in ' Apocalypse' and have some of the actors play two different characters or something to continue this out. IDK

A friend came over last night and we decided to watch it. What a hot piece of trash. I love how the dude in the oven got his skin boiled but his clothes weren’t burned at all. Lucky him.

LOL.  I didn't think of that.  How about once Gus had the spike removed he walked on his own and pretty good to the car location, but before he was near death.

But Gus got a shot of summer camp-strength adrenaline to the heart so he’s all good now.

Am I the only one on here still watching?  Tonight's episode was really bad.  Even at only 9 episodes, they are really dragging this story out.
