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 Show's in Jupiter, Florida deals with serial killers, psychopaths, and society. This season is set in the 1950s.

  • 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.
  • An interesting show..

    This show is really a new show every season. It's a good and bad thing. The bad thing, you may not like every season.. the good thing, some seasons will kick ass.

    For me.. season 3 and current season 5 kick ass. The others.. meh..

    So, I must be in the minority since we have 4 seasons and a fifth one underway. I'll give my rating based on Season 5 as it stands for now.

    For Season 5, Lady Gaga rocks it the best! I've been a fan of hers since I've listened to her album with Tony Bennett. She has such a great voice. Talented beyond what I ever thought. I've seen her in SNL, etc.. She's funny, and it is surreal to see how grounded she can be.

    But in this Season 5 of the show, she is demonstrating some really awesome next level acting skills.

    This should launch her to do actual movies, so would she choose, because, this lady has real talent.

    She's a rare breed.moreless
  • 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
