Variety Review: “Freak Show” Puts The Horror Back Into “American Horror Story”!

Watch this space for more on Freak Show soon, and don’t forget the 90-minute premiere is tonight on FX! Oh, and viewer discretion is definitely advised, surprise surprise…

*The hauntingly beautiful song Else sings, David Bowie’s “Life on Mars?” contains the lyrics “It’s the freakiest show”.  Actually, all the lyrics could lend themselves well to her character. We can’t wait.
