FX's New Show: American Horror Story

The opening credits sequence for FX's new show, "American Horror Story", looks like something out of my nightmares: medical equipment, body parts preserved in jars, vintage children's photographs, a white nightgown floating through the air. Christ. I don't know if I can watch this, but it sounds wildly intriguing. Here's what EW is saying about it:

"Usually you have to hit up a multiplex for the kind of jolts delivered by this thriller, but creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk (Glee) have crafted a small-screen roller coaster ride. The series follows the Harmon Family — husband Ben (Dylan McDermott), wife Vivian (Connie Britton), daughter Violet (Taissa Farmiga) — as they move into an old Los Angeles home with a dark history. For example, the home’s basement not only is in need of dusting but also might be the resting place of a serious evil creature, seen in the Oct. 5 premiere. And then there’s the man in the rubber fetish suit…"

Oddly enough, when I went to the show's official site, I was surprised to learn it's described as a "psycho-sexual thriller." Didn't see that coming. I guess that explains the rubber fetish suit. . .

Watch the video here.  Thanks, Cat!

  1. Looking forward to seeing this tonight. I have to say, the thing that hooked me was the incredible marketing campaign. Have you seen/read about the objects they have been mailing out to people that are supposed to be clues about the house?
