American Horror Story


American Horror Story is a dramatic television series created and produced by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. Each season, the series focuses on a different setting and story.

In the first season, a family that moves to a house Los Angeles, unaware that it is haunted. Father Ben Harmon (Dylan McDermott) is trying to deal with his wife's rejection after he has an affair with a student, and soon falls under the house's sway. Meanwhile, wife Vivien (Connie Britton) must not only try to forgive her husband but deal with the aftereffects of a miscarriage. Daughter Violet (Taissa Farmiga) is confronted with hostile girls at her new school and befriends her father's disturbed teenage patient, Tate Langdon (Evan Peters). And lurking nearby is neighbor Constance (Jessica Lange), a former actress who both hates and is oddly protective of her special-needs daughter Adelaide (Jamie Brewer), who can sense the house's evil.

In the second season, strange happenings occur at Briarcliff Manor, run by the Catholic church as a sanitarium. Sister Jude (Jessica Lange) administers the facility with a strict hand while concealing her lusts. Dr. Arthur Arden (James Cromwell) conducts strange experiments on the patients, including accused serial killer Kit Walker (Evan Peters), the infamous Bloody Face, who may or may not be innocent.

American Horror Story: Coven tells the secret history of witches and witchcraft in America. Over three hundred years have passed since the turbulent days of Salem and those who managed to escape are now facing extinction. Mysterious attacks have been escalating against their kind and young girls are being sent away to a special school in New Orleans to learn how to protect themselves. Wrapped up in the turmoil is new arrival, Zoe, who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own. Alarmed by the recent aggression, Fiona, the long-absent Supreme, sweeps back into town, determined to protect the Coven and hell-bent on decimating anyone who gets in her way.

American Horror Story: Freak Show is set in the town of Jupiter, FL in 1952. One of the last remaining troupes of freaks arrive at the same time as a dark entity that threatens them and the townspeople alike. (Source: FX)

4x4: Edward Mordrake (2) recap: Halloween Eve at the show, and Legless Suzi wakes up as green mist seeps into her tent. She crawls for the door but Edward kicks her back and says that no one will escape until his questions are answered. He questions her and the others, and asks how they came there. Suzi says that the doctors removed her legs due to a spinal condition, and her parents left her on the doorstep of the children's home in a basket. Edward says that it's a common story and wants to know her greatest shame. She ended up on the streets during the Depression, begging for money, and stabbed the dancer she worked with in the leg, furious that he could do what she couldn't. However, the man inspired her to perform... read more.
