If there’s one thing that “American Horror Story: Cult” does best, it’s giving viewers a sense of realism that other seasons of AHS just haven’t been able to provide. As many Redditors point out, the season is easily the most realistic to date. Try to find another installment that addresses real-life issues and provides social commentary with the honesty and unabashedness that “Cult” did. You won’t.
“Best [season] at revealing the horrors of real-world monsters such as cult leaders, psychological degradation, mental illness, phobias, and political radicalism which is becoming more and more apparent in the world,” said Redditor u/theralphamale. “Many of the horror themes hit a little too close to home.” Another thing that resonated with viewers was the psychological horror and “actual” scares that Murphy provided in “Cult,” according to the Redditors. “It felt so real,” said u/shelleyshocked.
Season 10 of “American Horror Story” — titled “Double Feature” — is currently airing on FX. The first half of the double feature, “Red Tide,” concluded on September 22. Part Two is set to debut on Wednesday, September 29.
