As I touched upon in my recent review of The Exorcist TV programme, we horror fans are seemingly spoilt for choice when it comes to terrifyingly good TV horror. So much choice in fact that there are many shows that I am yet to watch a single episode of, including Penny Dreadful, Fear the Walking Dead, The Strain and so on…
Two series I have managed to invest a lot of time in recently are American Horror Story and Bates Motel, for very different reasons.
AHS was a brand spanking new inject into horror TV, brought to us by the very capable Ryan Murphy (although I have never/will never watch Glee – shudder) with a great cast and great prospects. BM promised an unflinching coming of age story of a true psycho with a wonderful cast of promising young talent and seasoned veterans.
I’ve decided to pit the two against each other in a series of categories to determine once and for all which TV horror series is better: American Horror Story or Bates Motel.
