Re: American Horror Story: S2: EP5: “I Am Anne Frank, Pt. 2”
Full blown Ed Gein territory now. Throw in a dead mother, and we'd have a stew.
I'm stoked. This is not the direction I thought they would head, but I dig it. Honestly it seems the main theme is fear, with the biggest fear being monsters. We can dump everything into monsters; our fear of sex, of foreigners, of religion, of authority, of being less than acceptable, of people who are different, of growing up, and on and on. Monsters are wonderful catchalls for fears, and that seems to be what the monsters (because there are sooooo many monsters) on this show are doing. Even the Stepford Wife is a monster of sorts. Viva la labotomy, Lola.
So this epi was pretty much the Empire Strikes Back, huh? Everyone was left on such a downer note.
You're killing me, Buster.
