If you have a vagina and you’re not watching it, you are WRONG. Watching Coven satisfies an inner, sadistic desire to choke a bitch to death with your mind powers while wearing Chanel No.5. Seriously, score one for the ladies.
A/N: Non-spoilery. Yay!
Forget the ratty robes and the twiggy wands. Little black dresses and big black sun hats are what the modern witches are wearing nowadays. Best way to enjoy Coven: put on a pair of oversized sunglasses, curl up in a luxurious baby cashmere throw, and open up a large bottle of pinot. Oh, and of course… wear something black.
Yes, there are zombies. And yes, AHS managed to browbeat TWD into submission with just one episode. And if zombies aren’t your cup of tea, how about a witch-made minotaur?
Okay, it’s kind of obvious that Evan Peters and Taissa Farmiga are meant to be together (go away, Emma Roberts), but the way things are going right now… who knows what could happen?! Also, other romance things are involved, but shh… I shan’t spoil it for you.
I wouldn’t say Coven is ‘tame’ compared to Asylum. I would say that the horror in Coven is much more elegant and delectably poised than it was in Asylum. It’s not about the blood and guts (okay, maybe a little). It’s more about the devious manipulation… and how dangerous women can really be.
As Fiona Goode – the wonderful Jessica Lange – put it, “The point is — in this whole, wide, wicked world, the only thing you have to be afraid of … is me.”
That should be enough to convince you, I would think.
