Netflix has been killing it this Halloween season with the release of The Haunting of Hill House.  It’s known to be one of the best original series, creeping out many audiences worldwide.  Even after the series took off, many audiences are still shocked by the ‘hidden ghosts’ featured within each episode.  This only goes to show that American Horror Story definitely has some competition this season.

But The Haunting of Hill House isn’t the only arsenal Netflix has in its digital library.  Another horrific paranormal features people opening about their unique horror story that still haunts them to this day.  It can only be described as a real-life American Horror Story, only with actors recreating the events being described.  This is Netflix’s Haunted.

Happy Monday everyone!  Halloween is just a few days away, meaning even MORE Spooktacular posts here at MakeSandcastlesNotWar.  The latest horror TV series/movies have been discussed throughout the week (most especially American Horror Story: Apocalypse).  It’s also exciting to note that November rolls in real soon.

Yes, I know what you’re thinking – time is just flying by.  That’s why its time to start with yet another horror-themed post today.  The best way to kick off this week?  ANOTHER crossover discussion of American Horror Story: Apocalypse!

Oh yes folks – the crossovers keep coming over on AHS.  This reoccurring theme of crossovers has been happening since the very first episode.  Just when you thought you grasped the central outline of the story, only to get tugged away at a completely different direction.  Michael Langdon is one of many familiar characters that returned to season 8.

Better yet, the latest episode featured more characters (and a subtle reference to one of the witches!).  All of this went down of the latest episode titled ‘Traitor’.

Cordelia asks Dinah Stevens for help with arranging a meeting with Papa Legba in order to prevent Langdon’s plans from happening (you may remember Papa Legba as the Gatekeeper of the Spirit World from American Horror Story: Coven).  Dinah cautions Cordelia about summoning Legba because her teacher (Marie Laveau, a.k.a. the voodoo queen from American Horror Story: Coven) suffered her horrific fate after not giving him his offer.  Either way, Cordelia summons Legba to get some answers.

Legba is summoned, explained that he owns Nan’s soul.  He agrees to help Cordelia, but under one condition: she must give the remaining souls of her witches.  That’s right, Legba wants ALL of the Coven witches’ soul!  But Cordelia refuses the offer and Legba disappears.

Meanwhile Madison works with Mytle and Bubbles McGee (Joan Collins in her other role) to defeat Michael.  Bubbles later discovers (through her special powers of reading souls) that Ariel and Baldwin knew about John Henry’s death and learn they are planning to kill the witches.

With the help of Mallory (who MAY be the next “Supreme” after passing the Seven Wonders) and Coco, Cordelia resurrects John Henry.  They capture Baldwin, Ariel, and Miriam Mead in order to burn them at the stake for treason.  Michael Langdon is now left with no allies by his side.

This has been another intriguing crossover event on American Horror Story: Apocalypse.  Even more characters were brought back into the storyline.  Whether directly (Papa Legba) or indirectly (Marie Laveau), each past character played their part in driving the plot.

Tune in next week to see what happens next on American Horror Story: Apocalypse.  You won’t want to miss what happens on the next episode…that just so happens to fall right on Halloween night.  Stay tuned!
