After 10 episodes, I still don’t now what I am looking for in “American Horror Story”, and that isn’t something I am used to while watching TV.
Starting out, I was expecting some cheap, gory thrills – a nice little break from my weekly line up of sitcoms and dramas. As the show progressed, I started getting more and more invested in this cast of morally grey monsters, and it became about them. I wanted to see all of these characters moving on or being happy or getting punished for their wrong doings. There was an exceptional amount of emotional investment on my part that came completely unexpectedly to me.
Recently, the cracks in the show have begun to surface in quite obvious ways…. READ MORE
Last night’s episode of FX’s “American Horror Story” was even better than the one before, and so on. Each episode is building towards something potentially epic – and one story told in the episode by Constance’s (Jessica Lange) friend ties it all together with the coming of the Antichrist. What has Tate (Evan Peters) been up to?
Inside you’ll find a preview of next Wednesday’s episode 01.10 “Smoldering Children” where Violet learns about the rules of the house. The truth about Larry’s condition is explained. And Constance is interrogated by the police. Where is this all leading? I can’t wait for the hour and a half finale!!!
“American Horror Story” revolves around the Harmons, a family of three who moved from Boston to Los Angeles as a means to reconcile past anguish. Check out a brand new teaser for the next show that airs Wednesday nights at 10PM ET/PT only on FX. READ MORE
FX’s “American Horror Story” has been building and building and building into what we’re all hoping is a monstrous season finale. Each episode I expect everything to fall apart, and yet, this Beetlejuice-esque horror tale finds a way to take things even further. Seriously, how good can it get? Apparently, really, really, realllllly good.
Inside you’ll find a preview of next Wednesday’s episode 01.09 “Spooky Little Girl” that promises that “one of history’s most famous murder victims pays the house a visit, while Constance (Jessica Lange) discovers more of Tate’s (Evan Peters) bad behavior.”
Bad behavior is an understatement, at least according to the following clip that basically states Tate could be responsible for bringing the Antichrist into the world. WOWSA. READ MORE
The cablers must be happy with the online popularity as they’ve begun unloaded tons of images and clips from upcoming episodes.
This afternoon FX updated their YouTube page with a 2-minute sneak peak at this Wednesday’s episode of “American Horror Story” that’ll air 10PM ET/PT only on FX. I’m not going to preface the clip with anything as I personally want to be surprised, but it was teased last week that episode 01.08 will reveal “the man in the rubber suit” (the guy who raped Vivien Harmon (Connie Britton) and got her all pregged up!) The elephant in the room will soon cease to exist…

For weeks now, there has been a huge build up among “American Horror Story’s”" younger female viewers about the origins of Tate Langdon; resident heartthrob and mass murderer. Okay fine, so maybe I was really excited about this episode too. Crazy or not, you can’t help but have a certain affection for this kid, who sort of acts as a scrappy mascot for the show, and provides some of the more intense and emotional scenes the series has to offer. So this is the Tate episode primarily. Keep that in mind. All things Tate are revealed here. For 40 something minutes, the Harmon’s take a backseat, and we fill a much needed knowledge gap.
Ryan Murphy described the first 15 minutes of 1×6 as “disturbing”, and he managed to deliver his promise quite effectively. It’s 1994, and a group of diverse teens are hulled up in a library after hearing gunshots outside. They are the same teens that approached Tate in the last episode, so right away, you know that no matter how well they manage to defend themselves, their fate is sealed. Watching the students waiting to die and slowly being shot is, in my opinion, a million times more unsettling than any ghost or monster this show has managed to produced so far. the coldness of these executions is beyond brutal, reminding us that human beings at their ugliest are capable of things truly fit for horror pictures.
Once Tate gets home, he is instantly ambushed by the police and shot to death. READ MORE
There comes a time every few years when a series rolls around that sets up a web of mysteries and secrets that leave you more or less banging your head against a wall. We are attracted to these stories regardless of how revealing they ultimately are because they are essentially a perpetual cliffhanger. An addicting drug that leaves you craving for more.
Thankfully, not all episodes need to create more questions. This week’s instillment of “American Horror Story” did just the opposite, giving us juicy bits of sweet closure to questions we have been asking since the pilot.
In the last episode, the Harmon’s had rushed home after getting a distress call from their daughter. When they got there, she was missing, and we were left to believe that she had been brutalized by one of the many things that night that had the intention of hurting her. As it turns out, she had followed up on her date with Tate (there was no way around that guys), and had simply left the house on her own. Rather than pulling the TV trick where everyone is looking for the runaway kid and assuming the worst, Violet is responsible and calls her mom. She of course, doesn’t say she is with Tate, but lets her know that she is spending time with friends and that she is safe. Well it’s good that she is half honest anyway. READ MORE
Leave it to American Horror Story to remind us that even in a bad economy and a time of social unrest, we can take comfort in the fact that we don’t live in a house with countless numbers of homicidal ghosts. American Horror Story’s fourth episode is Halloween inspired, but unlike many of the other shows aiming for a holiday theme, it’s story remains relevant to the main plot line. No matter what, this show is always going to be twisted and creepy, but last night’s episode had a slight added playfulness to it. There were even a few jokes peppered into all of that gloom. To add to the fun, Zachary Quinto makes a guest appearance as Chad, one of the men that lived in the house before the Harmons. We are finally given some background on these characters, whom had previously only been briefly mentioned in past episodes.
The show opens with a domestic dispute between this couple. Their background has an eerie similarity to Vivian and Ben’s. Patrick is a cheater who feels like his relationship has more or less gone down the toilet, and that the intimacy in his relationship is gone. Chad is sitting back silently and trying to hold the family together. All of their assets are in the house, and because of the economy, they are stuck there. It’s always interesting seeing gay couples being portrayed on TV because for a lot of writing staffs, they are something of an anomaly. Gay characters are “hip” these days, but actually seeing a couple in a domestic setting that doesn’t scream “Modern Family” is refreshing; even if they aren’t in a happy relationship. READ MORE
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!
With the premiere not until October 5, FX has kicked the marketing campaign into high gear for their ultra-bizarre and creepy looking “American Horror Story” with a second teaser clip, this time featuring a baby pushing out from his mother’s womb. Awesome stuff.
The show 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.
Sources tell E! that “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy has written a role expressly for the daughter of an iconic actress in his upcoming FX series “American Horror Story” — and she’ll share an “ungodly connection” with Connie Britton.
Lily Rabe, daughter of the late great Jill Clayburgh, is joining the cast for six episodes. Lily is a Broadway and TV actress, having starred in Steel Magnolias and “Medium” and, in a way, she is following in her mother’s footsteps. Jill, who passed away in November, counted among her many TV and movie projects “Nip/Tuck” (also from Ryan Murphy) and “The Practice” (with AHS star Dylan McDermott).
Lily will play the original owner of the haunted house that Connie and Dylan move into, and her story will be told in 1920s-era flashbacks. Sources who work on the show say she’s fantastically creeptastic in this new role, and there will be a cool and unexpected reveal regarding that aforementioned “ungodly connection” to Connie.
“American Horror Story” premieres Oct. 5 on FX.
