Get ready for the strangest show on TV...
After creating hit shows Nip/Tuck and Glee, Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk delivered this bizarre mix of old and new school horror set inside the classic setting of a haunted house. We follow a family, the Harmons - father Ben (Dylan McDermott), mother Vivien (Connie Britton) and daughter Violet (Taissa Farmiga) - as they move into their new house unaware of the horrors that await them. Throughout the series we learn more about the house's strange and violent history by means of flashbacks to different years and we encounter a rotating cast of troubled, often malevolent individuals.
Aside from providing the most unpredictable TV series of last year, the series is just so chock full of fascinating characters, great performances (particularly from Jessica Lange as the enigmatic neighbour Constance and Evan Peters as repeat visitor Tate) and an unsettling, often terrifying vibe that makes the show as unnerving as it does perversely entertaining.
There are so many shows out there that blend into the crowd but American Horror Story is definitely not one of them. For those after something a bit different this show most definitely satisfies that need.
