American Horror Story — Series 1: Murder House Episode 4 and 5: Halloween Pt 1 and Halloween Pt 2

22nd June, 2017

Oh, now, I hate my guts.

In a manner of speaking.

I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Eat the wrong thing?   And I’m out of action.

Certainly — as tonight — off work!

Complete with assorted stomach cramps, the trots, heaps of pained expressions … 

You name it, I’ll have it.


Just to make it perfectly clear!

Although if you’ve got a corset that’ll fit me, I’ll think about it.

Ummm … 

This post seems to be getting away from me, doesn’t it … ?

Suffice to say, I’ve had an unexpected night off.

And … ?

And wanted to carry on with a box set I’d been watching.

You got it.


Episode 4Halloween (Pt 1) — sees Ben and Vivan — Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton — still intent on selling the Murder House.

And talked into hiring fluffers, Chad and Phillip — Zachary Quinto and Teddy Sears — little knowing the pair have a history: both with the house, AND each other.

Meanwhile?   Addie (Jamie Brewer), the girl next door?   Is desperate to go treat or treating: only to come to a sad end.

Episode 5Halloween (Pt 2) — sees Violet (Taissa Farmiga) going on a date with Tate.   Only for the pair to be harassed at a local beach: by a gang of — apparently — heavily made up teens.

Back at the house, itself?

Ben and Vivian have come to an agreement: after Vivian has received too many calls from Hayden (Kate Mara), Ben former — and very dead — mistress.

Are you thinking what I’m thinking?

That the corpses of the Murder House don’t stay dead?


Now … 

Enjoying the show?


This one series, thus far?

Has kept me both entertained and intrigued for these first five episodes.

Granted, it seems — in it’s own flashback ridden form — to be telegraphing its move a little … but … ?

But, like watching a magician perform a really theatrical version of the Inexhaustible bottle?

We go to see a trick well done.

Thus far?

Murder House is very well done, indeed.
