With the plethora of fantastic horror available right now, it’s a great time to be a horror fan. Not only are horror movies getting better and better, told from a variety of viewpoints and with tons of cool new stories, but television is also experiencing a horror renaissance. And y’all, there are just too many options to choose from.
It all started with the premiere of What We Do In The Shadows this past week, which got me thinking–what other cool new 2019 horror TV shows have come out or are coming out soon?
The season premiere of American Horror Story: Freakshow aired last week and I watched it, despite myself. Even though the first three to four episodes of a season are amazing and entertaining, with inventive treatments of basic horror tropes and characters, but then things start to fall apart in the middle of the season. I’ve been hurt before—AHS: Coven had an awesome concept, a solid cast, and there was a lot of potential, but the execution was bad and the storytelling was a train wreck. In vain, I watched the whole thing, hoping they’d pull it together with some transcendent plot twist and I would feel better about the thousands of abandoned storylines, the underutilized Angela Bassett, the inconsistent character treatment, and the most incompetent witch hunters ever. Also, Hank. Hank was the woooorrrrssst.
Go away Hank! No one likes you!
But there I was, ready for the fourth season.
