Spoilers for American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare

What else can they possibly throw at the Miller family? Attacks by locals, pig men, a kidnapped niece, feral kids, an evil ghost clan from the first colony, witch sex!!! And poor Cricket (Leslie Jordan) ended up getting disemboweled. Matt (Cuba Gooding Jr.) and Shelby (Sarah Paulson) are now face to face with the Thomasin White aka The Butcher (Kathy Bates) and her clan of ghost colonists ready to once again rid their land of the intruders. Of course, since this season is done through “dramatic re-enactments,” none of the tension we are seeing is actually happening. We get the real Matt and Shelby (Andre Holland and Lily Rabe) giving narration throughout. It speaks so much to the creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan that despite this they maintain in a crazy amount of legit scares and utter creepiness.

Spoilers for American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare

Last week American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare, the Miller family’s descent into madness continued as the search for missing Flora (Saniyya Sidney) escalated. First there was the lost farm housing feral kids. Then Flora’s father Mason (Charles Malik Whitfield) was found as a burned and dead totem in the woods, and Lee (Angela Bassett) was arrested. Matt (Cuba Gooding Jr.) and Shelby (Sarah Paulson) are at their wits end, stuck between belief and skepticism. On one hand, there are truly unbelievable things happening involving glass shattering during a seance, bloody letters on their walls, and creepy video tapes. But then when shifty medium Cricket Marlowe (Leslie Jordan) arrives claiming to communicate with the evil spirits of 400-year-old Roanoke ghosts, he casually needs $25,000 to continue “working.”

‘American Horror Story’ Renewed For A 7th Season!
  |  @   |  

Only three episodes into American Horror Story: Roanoke, the series 6th season on the FX network, and it is already picked up for a 7th season. Fresh off two more Emmy wins, the show created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk will return in 2017, to once again ruin bedtimes with their unique brand of horror. It was an easy call for FX execs, as the premiere episode of this season was the third highest rated broadcast on the network for the adults 18-34 demographic. The creators ran a genius viral marketing campaign, keeping the theme of the season a secret, and encouraging the fans to posts their guesses after countless video clues.

Last week on American Horror Story, we learned more of the story that beset the Miller family, Shelby (Lily Rabe) and Matt (Andre Holland) portrayed in re-enactments by Sarah Paulson and Cuba Gooding Jr. It wasn’t enough that Shelby was attacked by who she thought were locals trying to scare them out of the colonial North Carolina house. Matt was the target this time, having visions of nurses murdering elderly patients and painting the word MURDER in blood on their walls. It turns out he didn’t imagine everything as they both stumble across a hatch where they find a videotape left by Dr. Elias Cunningham (Denis O’Hare) detailing the house’s history as an old folks home where sister nurses did indeed murder patients. If that wasn’t bad enough, Matt’s addiction riddled sister Lee (Adina Porter/Angela Bassett in re-enactments), who brought her daughter Flora there, where the young girl promptly made friends with a psychotic ghost who threatened to kill everyone, and then went missing.

They instantly become targets for the locals who attack Shelby while Matt is away on a work trip. There also, of course, is a mysterious force lurking in the woods around the house.
