Tommy & Austin Tilden are father & son coroners who have the body of a Jane Doe delivered to their home-morgue after the police discover it half-buried in the cellar at the scene of an already gruesome & very confusing crime scene. The pair realize there are some serious abnormalities with their corpse before they even cut her open. Her wrists & ankles appear to be broken, but there are no marks on her body. And it just gets weirder from there.

Synopsis: Shy and awkward wizard, Newt Scamander, travels from the UK to New York, with plans to make it to the exotic land of Arizona so he can release his precious Thunderbird, Frank, back to the wild. He is shocked to learn that American wizards have very different - and much more strict - rules regarding magical beasts and interactions with no-majs (the American version of muggle). When a few magical beasts escape from his suitcase, Newt and his new friends Tina, Jacob, and Queenie work together to track them all down. But there’s something much more dangerous threatening not only the lives of no-majs, but the exposure of the wizarding world in America.
This is it, folks. This is the final episode of *AHS: Roanoke*. This is the episode that will tie together all those loose ends from the previous nine episodes and leave us with a feeling of completion. Or at least, that's what we hope to get from a final episode. I guess you'll just have to watch, listen, & find out!
Even more characters bite the dust in this penultimate episode of American Horror Story: Roanoke. We begin the episode with Audrey, Monet, Lee, and newcomer, Dylan, and, as promised, we end the episode with one survivor. Who will be the survivor? Will Lee succeed in finding the incriminating video of her confession? Will we find out why there's been so much pig action? Tune in an find out!
During the Iran-Iraq War in 1988, a woman and her daughter are left alone in their Tehran apartment, while her husband serves in the military. After other tenants in the apartment building decide to move north in an attempt to escape the likely destruction of Tehran, Shideh goes against the wishes of her husband and remains in the apartment, despite the danger. But it isn't just bombs that Shideh and her daughter have to be afraid of. There seems to be a malevolent force in the apartment, intent on taking everything from them.
Want to skip the small talk? We start the review at 00:12:15
Lee, Audrey, and Monet, still captives of the deranged and quite obviously inbred Polks, try to find a way to escape their captors and get the hell outta dodge. Dominic and Shelby face a familiar horror as they try to make it through the first night in the Roanoke house. We're getting close to the end of the season here and it's getting harder to speculate what Mr. Murphy is going to throw at us in the final two episodes.
The whole gang (ok, almost the whole gang) is still at the Roanoke house for the filming of Sidney's "sure to be a hit" show, *Return to Roanoke: 3 Days in Hell*. But since we all know what goes down in Roanoke during the Blood Moon, it comes as no surprise when character start dropping like little piggies.
A prequel to the first movie, in which we learn more about the previous owners of the house. Set in 1967. Alice, along with her two daughters Lina & Doris, is struggling to make ends meet after the death of her husband. She runs a fortune-telling business out of her home, & her daughters assist her in fooling their customers with trick cabinets, candles that go out at will, etc. Things start to get real when Alice decides to add a Ouija board into her act. It’s youngest daughter, Doris, who seems to have a real knack for using the board.
