8. 'Hotel' (Season 5)
More often than not, the lesser "AHS: Horror Story" seasons can be described as "off" or "disappointing." But the fifth entry -- an overstuffed, modern day-set retread of the first -- was just out-and-out bad. Yes, Lady Gaga
was devilishly captivating as The Countess, a villainous vampire at the heart of a ghostly establishment in downtown Los Angeles, but everything else about it was, in a word, dumb.
This season is listless and uninspired, with a bunch of gonzo ideas ping-ponging around inside an incredibly empty, immaculately designed space, with nowhere to go.
