The main reason: Evan Peters.
Yes, he’s great — transforming himself every season with Ryan Murphy’s anthology horror T.V. series “American Horror Story.” But “AHS: Cult” takes it on a whole new level. Peters carries the whole show as the charismatic psychopathic cult leader and Donald Trump supporting Michigan common council leader Kai Anderson.
What’s more: Peters embodies a host of other historical cult leaders in flashbacks.
He’s scary good. We pinky power promise. But the season doesn’t get really good until about episode 9 or so.
