A frightening seasonal anthology series brought to you by Ryan Murphy, the creator of Nip-Tuck. Each season of American Horror Story is conceived as a self-contained miniseries, following a disparate set of characters, settings and time periods in a twisted and uniquely terrifying journey through the core horror genre. Season 1, American Horror Story Murder House, revolves around the Harmons, psychiatrist Ben (Dylan McDermott), his wife Vivien (Connie Britton), and their teenage daughter Violet (Taissa Farmiga), who move from Boston to Los Angeles after Vivien has a miscarriage, and Ben has an affair. The Harmons move into a restored mansion and soon encounter the home's former residents, the Langdons: Constance Langdon (Jessica Lange), and her two children, Tate (Evan Peters) and Addie (Jamie Brewer), and the disfigured Larry Harvey (Denis O'Hare). Ben and Vivien try to rekindle their relationship, as Violet, suffering from depression, finds comfort with Tate. The Langdons and Larry frequently influence the Harmons' lives, as the family soon discovers that the home is haunted by the ghosts of its former inhabitants. In the second instalment of the award winning psychosexual horror series Set in 1964, American Horror Story - Asylum sees the return of many season 1 cast members and takes viewers into a Church-run haven for the criminally insane, ruled with an iron fist by Sister Jude (Jessica Lange), a nun with a troubled past. This grisly tale begins in present day when Leo and Teresa, the unsuspecting newlyweds, choose to spend their honeymoon within the safe haven of a now abandoned asylum. Or is it…once inside, the pair are thrust into a gruesome fight for their lives as the story flashes back to 1964. Originally a tuberculosis ward, Briarcliff Manor, western Massachusetts, was brought by the Catholic Church and transformed into a chilling insane asylum. Monsignor Timothy O’Hara (Joseph Fiennes) and the formidable Sister Jude (Jessica Lange) are in charge with the help of Sister Eunice (Lily Rabe). Inside this locked down facility, danger lurks around every corner. From Nazis and serial killers to mutants, no one is safe inside these walls.
