Show Summary

In this seasonal anthology series, American Horror Story in the first season follows the Harmon family, a family of three who have moved from Boston to LA for a fresh start but end up living in a sinister haunted house instead. From producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk comes the intriguing, erotic and scary story of life within the haunted house.

In the second season, the series deals with the legend of Bloody Face, who haunts a Catholic-run sanitarium in 1964. In a house of healing that is anything but, a serial killer is the least of the threats that menace residents and staff alike.

In the third season, a group of witches deal with enemies from within and without as they try to survive in the modern day.

In the fourth season one of the last standing freak shows in Jupiter, Florida deals with serial killers, psychopaths, and society. This season is set in the 1950s.

In the fifth season set in the present day, the Hotel Cortez in LA is haunted by the ghosts who have died within. A unique species of vampire-like creatures also stalk the halls.

    • One of the best shows since the invention of television.

      Full Disclosure (01/02/2016)

      I am not into Horror shows as a role. Penny Dreadful is pretty awesome.. Recently we got Ash vs Evil Dead and considering I loved Army of Darkness, that's really great!

      So, how did I get to this show?

      Lady Gaga.

      While she's been around for a few years, I'm not a fan of pop music, since I'm a hardcore blues fan and guitar player.

      But.. I was bored one day, working from home on my PC and found her via You Tube, in some Saturday Night Live sketch and well, she was funny, she had timing.

      Then, I found out she had an album with Tony Bennett. And boy does this lady have pipes!!! OMG.. I was blown away, such an awesome voice.

      She did the awards where she sang the Sound of Music.. Not my type of music for sure, but again, she sang it so well, I was enthralled.

      So, I'm a big fan.

      Yeah.. :)

      Now, I heard she was going to be in American Horror Story: Hotel, which at this point in time, there are still 2 episodes left.

      I had to watch and see this show.

      Well the show is awesome and so is Lady Gaga.

      And it got me to purchase the first 4 seasons.

      And I've been binge watching the show.

      Just awesome, the actors are all awesome The talent everyone exhibits.

      Combined with clever and well made scripts.

      This show blows your mind away.

      So there you go.

      It would be awesome one day, to be on the set and meet all of these actors in their environment.


      Every goddamn season is great! The links between Season 2, 4 and 1.. Amazing. Season 4 ending was so awesome. Season 5 is not finished yet, but I'm already sad it will be done in 2 more episodes.

      I hope Season 6 has Jessica Lange again. As much as every actor is awesome in the show, considering there is a form of continuity, Ms Lange needs to be in Season 6!

      This is pure guilty pleasure to watch!moreless
    • The season thus far

      Liz Taylor (Denis O'Hare) steals the show!!

      Scarlett (Shree Crooks) is the worst actress EVER. She even annunciates her T's...

      Overall I'm not really enjoying this season... but after being spoiled with Kit from Asylum the bar is set absurdly high.
    • American Horror - Deathly Obsession

      Just have to say loving it. Cast are amazing and the writers and directors must be very clever.. to make this over the top horror stuff work it can only be done by very very clever folks who know what they are doing... One wrong move and this would be cheese,, but its not its just so clever. I want more more me else Thank you for the hours of viewing to all Langs smokes *** like know one I know.. total class and old fashioned real glamour.. but love all involved ... great acting on everyone parts... now get back to work and feed my love of this show xmoreless
    • Bad and could not get so bad to what in the world are they thinking?

      We should just go back to the 50,s and 60,s of just the most horrific of bad direction, sex and kill. Really? Where on earth do these people think that this goes anywhere but trouble! Very bad taste and content for anyone!
    • Season 3 meh!!!

      First off I should declare my love for this show and it's originality. I love how it changes every season, really keeps me interested.

      Having said that S3 Coven did dissapoint me a little, but it was always going to be hard to top S2 Asylum; which is by far my fave of the series so far. I have watched a good few horrors that scared the bejesus out of me but for the first time a TV show truly had me terrified form the outset and did not let up the whole season through!!!!

      There were a lot of great elements to like about Coven, the intro of Angela Bassett who really stole the show 4 me, well her and Kathy Bates. I was extremely annoyed at how Misty was dismissed so easily and trapped in hell, I really loved her character and would have liked to see her survive till the end. Emma Roberts was gleefully abhorrent as always and I was totally chuffed when she FINALLY snuffed it.

      Overall Coven just lacked something for me unfortunately. My ranking so far is Asylum, Season 1 and then Coven. Just about to start Freak Show and I must admit I am REALLY looking forward to this series.moreless
