Quotes

Billie Dean Howard: What the hell are you? You're not dead.
Ramona Royale: I'm a creature who kills to live and who drinks a body's worth of blood a day and doesn't think twice about who I'm sucking it from. So if you even let out a whisper of a word that sounds like Cortez I'll find you and drain every drop of life from your skinny ass.

Disappointment
3 October 2016 | by davidrezSee all my reviews

I was so terribly disappointed from AHS s5. The worst boring exhausting season ever! The plot dragged slowly and dispersed, it was so much mess and was very pervert. The plot definitely was not interesting or scary! one big BORING and tedious season! The seasons before that were full of excitement and sweeping story lines... (well, not all of them) but still better from this one, and not to mention Jessica Lange's great performance that was so missing. I felt I had to try really hard to like this season. There was kind of a dark and suspenseful atmosphere at the hotel but still there wasn't satisfaction. Unfortunately it made me wonder what's wrong with the writers?! I can say that Lady Gaga might surprised with her act and actor's make- up wasn't bad at all but i really was expecting to be a good interesting plot.
