American Horror Story is a pretty interesting new horror/drama series that premiered few months ago on cable channel FX in the States. The show centers on the Harmon family who moves into a restored mansion in Los Angeles, unaware that the house is haunted by it’s previous owners.
Sounds campy, yes, but it is also sexy and scary at the same time. I hadn’t really thought about writing about the show, until I watched the episode “Rubber Man” (S01E08). In previous episodes we have seen glimpses of the houses previous owners; a gay couple played by Zachary Quinto (who recently came out in the New York Magazine) and Teddy Sears, but in this episode we learn to know more about their history.
The show also features magnificent Jessica Lange and Frances Conroy from HBO’s Six Feet Under, of which American Horror Story slightly resembles.
