I love the Halloweentown movies, I watch them every year, but this year when I was watching the third installment, I had some serious conflict. If there is anyone else that has been watching the show American Horror Story on FX you know that last season was “Freak Show,” which included an incredibly terrifying clown character and a disturbing boyish sociopath. The same charming actor that plays Cody in Halloweentown High plays the disturbing boyish sociopath who was also unnaturally intrigued by the clown.
Finn Wittrock may have been forever ruined in my eyes because of American Horror Story, which is too bad because he used to be so charming. It’s not that he can’t be charming anymore, it’s mostly that I can’t get that creepy character out of mind whenever I see him now. Maybe with time that will fade away and I will regain the ability to like him in Halloweentown High again. I’m thankful that in this current season of American Horror Story he is not nearly as nightmarish as he was in “Freak Show”.
In a positive light, that could be a complement to both the actor Finn Wittrock and the writers/producers/directors of American Horror Story because they created and relayed on the screen such a fantastically disturbing character that it may very well stick with me forever.
