American Horror Story: Coven Season 3 Review “Fearful Pranks Ensue”

In the first part of the Halloween-themed episode of “American Horror Story: Coven,” which features the genuinely terrible title “Fearful Pranks Ensue,” we essentially picked up right where we left off, after a brief prologue involving a woman named Cora that worked for Marie Laveau way back in 1961, whose child was lynched for unspecified reasons by a bunch of crazy rednecks. Not that there could possibly be a good one, mind you, but we never really got the specifics.

Whatever the case, the scene was mostly a set-up to show what Laveau was capable of, and to show that she was still in touch with Cora, who’s now a customer instead of an employee. As it turns out, Laveau can raise the dead, and not only that, but make them into bloodthirsty, ravenous, vengeful zombies like something straight out of a Lucio Fulci flick. Hey, witches may be all the rage, but no doubt the people behind the show know that there’s gold in them thar zombies. So, tonight was more“AMC” than “AHS” if you will.
