Zengrrl’s Series Review – ‘Slasher: Flesh & Blood’ (Season 4) .. #SlasherFleshandBlood #Shudder #SeriesReview #Horror

Slasher: Flesh & Blood

It’s rare that a horror series escapes my notice, but somehow I didn’t find out about Slasher: Flesh & Blood until the day its finale dropped on Shudder.

Maybe it’s because the first season of the Slasher anthology series ran on the now defunct Chiller Network, and seasons 2 and 3 ran on Netflix, but I didn’t immediately connect Slasher: Flesh & Blood as being part of the anthology.

I ended up binging the entire season in one day.

All the Tommys in the World by Javier Gombinsky is an apocalyptic zombie vs human vs ghoul story set on what seems to be an alternate-reality earth.

When Lilith’s parents come to take them to the safety of their old hometown, Leatelranch, the two rebel and end up getting separated on the streets of New Southport.

Zengrrl's Series Review: American Horror Stories (Season 1)

Now that season one of American Horror Stories has ended its run, I wanted to review the series as a whole.

American Horror Stories is a spin-off of sorts of the long-running American Horror Story horror series.
