Critic reviews for Open House

All in all, "Open House" is another average episode of what's becoming in my eyes, just an average series.

We know this show is going to disappoint us because it's the creation of Ryan Murphy, who can't seem to sustain quality in his shows over time.

"Open House" shattered what remained of our ignorance of the resident via glorious illumination of the birth of the mansion and some of its inhabitants.

First of all, hearing Moira say that Constance killed her and buried her in the background is just...awesome.

Holy crap! As deaths go on this series, the fate that befell poor, chauvinistic Mr. Eskandarian was one of the more cringe-worthy.

August 2, 2016 | Rating: 8.5/10 | Full Review…

I don't know about you guys, but I love this show as though it were the deformed attic monster I asked my disfigured boyfriend to lust-murder.
