So Coven is the third American Horror Story and this time we get a more magical twist on things. Namely witchcraft vs voodoo.
Zoe, a young teen, has a mysterious accident that leaves her boyfriend dead and a hell of a lot of questions to be asked. She is sent to Miss Robichaux’s Academy in New Orleans, a boarding school for girls with issues like this. She finds out she’s a witch descended all the way back to Salem, as well as her classmates with there own dangerous gifts and troubled pasts.A change in power is coming at the school as Madison, the mean girl of this school, is taken under the wing of dying supreme witch Fiona and an old grudge between Fiona and a ageless voodoo priestess gets wicked in this creepy power struggle…
I’m going to be blunt, I love this season but it ain’t much of a horror story. There’s frightening imagery but I got more of a R rated Hogwarts vibe. Still, I always was fascinated by witchcraft and voodoo and the season takes an interesting approach them. The characters are all solid and Kathy Bates and Angela Basset are welcome additions. The pacing and the smooth flow make it the most engaging, so if you are a newcomer, I’d recommend. checking this season out first. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
