A mortician, played by Madison Iseman, becomes attracted to dead bodies. Really we have come to this.
Honestly there was nothing even remotely scary about this episode, to even call it an episode of American Horror Stories feels disingenuous. In everything that Ryan Murphy does there is a level or eroticism some might say that is his style or even auteur signature, and that has always been very true for AHS. However, here it feels like it is taken to an extreme for no real reason at all, in truth what wants to be shocking is in fact very tame, it is the same thing as always traditionally good looking actors going at it. That is not shocking.
Really if anything this episode is fairly boring because other than the fact that the lead saw her family killed when she was a child and now has sexual feelings towards dead bodies, nothing of any real note happens. If I were to describe this episode in a word it would almost certainly be humdrum, it feels like midseason filler which it likely is.
Overall, nowhere near as shocking as it thinks it is, rather instead boring and tame.
It is watchable
There are moments so silly that they are unintentionally hilarious
It is tame
It is boring
It is badly paced
