Judith on the verge

16 Nov

Like it wasn’t freaky enough to decapitate a guy.   Now she has to look down-right possessed.

There is no question: this woman is pissed.   She is hunched over, glaring ahead, moving with stealth.  The face is intense – gnarled and snarling – brows knit, eyes wide, teeth clenched.  The deep red of her lips creates the impression that she chewed off Holofernes’ head.  And then there is the Maid skulking at her side.  Given Judith’s crouch, the maid must be on her hands and knees, crawling like a rodent.  Her face is haunted with sunken eyes that seer through the darkness.

These.

Women.

Are.

Freaking.

Zombie.

Killer.

Batshit.

Crazy.

Scary.

Why should I bother to watch American Horror Story?
