American Horror Story: Hotel

Ok, so who watched AHS? I couldn't look away, but desperately wanted to!


I don't want to put any spoilers in here just yet, but I have to admit I was disgusted, shocked, grossed out, creeped out, and SCARED by the time the first episode was over. OMG, there was so much going on, and it was all just horrifying.


Lady Gaga plays a sexy blood-thirsty vixen that lives in the Hotel. Kathy Bates is the weirdo receptionist/caretaker and is wonderfully intimidating and funny at the same time. Sarah Paulsen is a junkie/hooker, but I'm sure there's more to that.


There are so many characters, all weirder and scarier then the last. The vibe of the show was definitely set on the first episode. There were so many shocking scenes in this episode...and so many questions! I think it will be a very interesting and frightening season.


I was so scared, I had to watch a 'happy' sitcom afterwards so I could go to bed! :jumpbed:


Who watched? What did you think? How do you think this season will be?

@Alundra Ms Alundra, each season is a completely different story, so even if you haven't watched any previous seasons you can watch this one and won't be 'lost' or behind. A lot of the same actors are in each seasons, but they always play completely different characters.


This is Kathy Bates third season. In Coven, she played Delphine LaLaurie, who was a real person in New Orleans that tortured and killed her slaves (she was a BAAAAD  person). In Freak Show, she played the bearded lady that performed in the freak show. In Hotel, she is plays Iris, who runs the hotel and holds all of the secrets.


If you have a chance to watch any of the other seasons, you really should. They are creepy and disturbing and scary....so...you know, you'll love them!  ;D [size=78%] [/size]

I am new to American Horror Story, and after only two episodes, I am hooked. I watched the first episode to see Lady Gaga (sure, she can sing, dance, be funny on SNL- but can she act?) ......YES! She is perfect as a blood-thirsty Femme Fatale. The first episode was confusing, and there were so many bizarre characters, that I wasn't sure if I would continue watching. In Episode Two, the history of the hotel is revealed, which explains a lot. The blood, gore and violent sex are totally over the top, but I suppose that's where the "horror" comes in.

I've only got one on netflix that looks like a slave story. It doesn't say much but I knew they were different stories...which is why it's so frustrating to not be able to watch this one yet!

The best part about Lady Gaga is she is a complete and utter limelight [FORUM CENSOR]. She says so herself and I say that with much love. She will put her everything into it, and she's done it her whole life....so this is the most natural thing she could possibly be doing!

@Amy Lanotte Yes! The first episode of Hotel was way over the top, but that is typical of AHS. It is often confusing at the beginning because they will start mid story or end story right off the bat, and then go back to the beginning to explain. They do fill in the gaps along the way, and everything is mostly answered by the end. I say 'mostly' answered because it always seems like one or two questions aren't answered....or maybe it's me and I pick up on weird little things and obsess over them..lol.


But, Lady Gaga is perfect in her role, as are the other characters. AHS always have the best cast, and a lot of surprise guests too. Hang in there, you won't regret it. I would recommend going back to the other seasons if you have a chance too. Totally worth it.

@Alundra I wonder if the season you have available is Coven? There was a slavery story line of Kathy Bates character. But that is a pretty awesome season...you have witches, voodoo, back from the dead, Stevie Nicks (yup that's right!) and of course Jessica Lange and The Supreme Witch. GOOD!


This season, I swear they wrote the part for Gaga. I can't imagine anyone else playing that part.


I am equally terrified and obsessed with this season!

Is it actually scary and is it scary like jumpscare or like content?

I think all of the seasons have some scary-cover-your-eyes-and-tossing-your-popcorn moments! Plus, there are some (ok, kind of a lot) gross, gory, makes-you-want-to-vomit moments, of course! But, for me, I find each season has the pit-in-your-stomach, unsettling, horrifying, something-bad-is-coming feel throughout the entire season. And usually for good reason. There is always an evil aspect from at least two or three of the characters.


The scariness comes from all directions!


You know...just good ol' fashioned fun.  :hide:  I sometimes have to watch cartoons or Seinfeld afterwards so I can sleep!

I've watched American Horror Story since the first season with Murder House. I was really glad that TV got some quality horror back then, Ryan Murphy really stepped up.

AHS: Hotel is probably the best season so far with Lady Gaga in the mix. I watched the first two episodes and she was always there in the back of my head, who knew she could act?? Also, Kathy Bates is perfect in any role she plays. The first film I watched of hers was Misery and needless to say I too became her "number one fan". That's a reference to the film. LOL. It's weird how talking about horror always leads me to reference something from Stephen King, I guess he's always there in people's subconscious with It freakin' traumatizing me.

LOL @NorthernLights about Kathy Bates. I love her in everything, and Misery is my 'number one' movie of hers  =D  As far as Lady Gaga, I agree, she has really stepped into this role and is fantastic. She plays 'perfectly creepy' with ease. I wonder if Ryan Murphy had her in mind when he was writing the script,  because I cant' imagine anyone else playing that role.


I'm hoping (fingers crossed) that Jessica Lange will make an appearance this season. It was rumored that she might make some sort of appearance so I HOPE that is true. I would love to see her and Gaga go head to head!
