Why American Horror Story: Cult should have kept the mass shooting scene intact

  • “The rejiggered sequence feels like an odd turn for American Horror Story,” says Jeffrey Bloomer. “Part of what has made the series’ new Cult season one of its most potent in years is its unfiltered, messy dive into the culture of the 2016 election, mashing up #MAGA hate crimes, the indoctrination of gay fascists, and the horrors of suburban Jill Stein liberals into a volatile and queasy mirror of our political moment. It works precisely because of how exploitative it is, pushing its familiar genre mechanizations on far-too-plausible events to underline the very real horror show our country has become.” ALSO: Here’s your first look at Lena Dunham on Cult.
