I haven’t been this excited for a new show since AMC premiered “The Walking Dead” last fall, and frankly, I’m way more intrigued by the imagery being throw around by FX for “American Horror Story,” which comes from the brains behind “Glee”.
Sure, we’ve seen rubber latex fetishes and a baby pressing on a mother’s belly from inside the womb, but how much do we really know. That’s the best part about “American Horror Story”: how well they’ve shrouded the new series, premiering October 5, in secrecy.
And while they keep us in the dark, more and more viral fun has begun to spring up, like the following “House Calls” campaign that sounds more terrifying than fun (which IS fun in my book).
“Fear. It makes a second seem like an hour. How will you react when you come face-to-face with a character from “American Horror Story”? There’s only one way to find out. Tell us who you are and what scares you. Give us your name and the name of a friend or family member who can help us plan your “American Horror Story House Call”. It could happen anytime. Anywhere.” Watch a creeptacular video inside and then Click here to register!
“American Horror Story”, co-created by former “Nip/Tuck” executive producers and current “Glee” co-creators/executive producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, revolves around the Harmons, a family of three who move from Boston to Los Angeles as a means to reconcile past anguish. The all star cast features Dylan McDermott (“The Practice”) as “Ben Harmon,” a psychiatrist; Connie Britton (“Friday Night Lights”) as “Vivien Harmon,” Ben’s wife; Taissa Farmiga as “Violet,” the Harmons’ teenage daughter; Jessica Lange (Tootsie, Blue Sky, Grey Gardens) in her first-ever regular series TV role as “Constance,” the Harmons’ neighbor; Evan Peters (“One Tree Hill”) plays “Tate Langdon,” one of Ben’s patients; and Denis O’Hare (“The Good Wife”) as “Larry Harvey.” Guest stars for the series include Frances Conroy (“Six Feet Under”) as the Harmons’ housekeeper; Alexandra Breckenridge (Dirt) as the Harmons’ housekeeper; and Jamie Brewer as Constance’s daughter.
