So what will happen on AHS: Hotel Episode 1, titled “Checking In“?
Unlike a few seasons of “AHS“, “Hotel” lacks dark humor, at least in tonight’s initial outing. And the crew revealed this week that Hotel will be one of the scariest and sexiest editions of the horror franchise.
How is Lady Gaga in “American Horror Story: Hotel“? The blondies are nearly certainly going to get into a few sort of bloody trouble-and they do-as they encounter the creepy children, the aforementioned creature in the mattress, and a disgruntled Lady Gaga.
Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney have already started thinking about what they will wear on their wedding day. Stefani Germanotta’s acting debut is obviously the biggest draw of the latest installment in Ryan Murphy’s deranged, often uneven horror anthology, and Hotel is as deranged and uneven as ever, making watching Gaga’s performance a positively nerve-wracking experience. And Bomer will play Donovan, a denizen of the establishment.
As Dr. Alex Lowe, John’s estranged wife, returning player Chloe Sevigny provides a welcome balance to the over-the-top bloodletting, but as good as she is, the bad soap opera dialogue just proves Murphy and Falchuk have no interest in writing “normal”, whatever that is. I’d like them to feel like they’re watching The Countess…
The series’ first season gave us Rubber Man – this season has, umm, well, I guess I’d call this nightmare Drill if that name hadn’t been taken by ABC’s “Whispers”, but here the meaning is a lot more literal.
As a die-hard fan of the series, I, along with many other Illinois State University students, have been anxiously awaiting the newest season ever since the “American Horror Story: Freak Show” finale in January.
What are your thoughts about Lady Gaga joining Season 6 of American Horror Story?
The premiere’s use of the Eagles’ “Hotel California” is as predictable as it is inevitable (“you can check out anytime you like/but you can never leave”) and fits this season’s emphasis on themes and mood over opening with a grabber of a story. The goal with Gaga’s character and numerous other characters/creatures introduced seems to be oblique mystery and “Hotel” accomplishes that with a constant “What the….??” guessing game.
