It can be interesting to start off a Halloween countdown smackdown by putting into battle two of the most popular horror television series of today, The Walking Dead versus American Horror Story.
It cannot be denied how much these two TV hits have changed the way television series is viewed by offering a good mix of drama into the horror genre. But which is scarier than the two that you'd be interested enough to do a scary Halloween marathon at the end of this month?
'American Horror Story Season Two': Everyone is 'Dying' to See More
According to NewNowNext, it can be a difficult battle to lay out. First off with the concept, The Walking Dead presents a storyline that is continuous that can make a lot when it garnering followers. However, it's a mere drawback that if you want to know the entire story, you need to start watching the series from season one. The American Horror Story, on the other hand, comes with a brand new story premise and a new set of characters every season. The edge? If you do not want to follow a vast storyline and settle for a refreshing one each and every time, it's American Horror Story that wins the round.
In terms of a satisfying experience when it comes to understanding emotions and feeling much drama instead of just merely shouting out of being scared, both come even. The round for special effects goes for both series winning; however, many might disagree that The Walking Dead should win this aspect of the Halloween smackdown.
It is also interesting to note how the site emphasised the qualities of both horror series to keep some parts of their plots up for the audience to think about. It can make any viewer not just plainly scared but also becoming more of an intelligent and analytical thinker. Somehow, it gives a greater sense of freedom for audiences to feel how they want the series of their choice to affect them.
As for me, I think that the smackdown victory will belong to the American Horror Story which recently premiered with its Season 3 pilot episode. Maybe for the mere reason that at the end of it all, it is hard to think how The Walking Dead will end when its concept itself is the world's end.
How about you? What is your choice in The Walking Dead vs. American Horror Story battle?
