Anticipation for ‘American Horror Story’ Builds

Not only has a new creepy teaser image/poster for American Horror Story appeared, but a brand new trailer full of actual footage has also been released and my anticipation couldn’t be any greater than it already is. The craving I have for good horror will hopefully be fulfilled this October 5 when the premiere episode of AHS finally airs on FX. Not only do I love horror, but what Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have already done with their previous creations, Nip/Tuck and Glee, only strengthens my trust in this program. Check out the full 30-second trailer after the break!

And be sure to check out the original promo full of more creepy imagery and mystery.

Office Synopsis via Bloody-Disgusting:

Co-created by former “Nip/Tuck” executive producers and current “Glee” co-creators/executive producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, the show “revolves around The Harmons, a family of three who move from Boston to Los Angeles as a means to reconcile past anguish. The All Star cast features Dylan McDermott (The Practice) as “Ben Harmon,” a psychiatrist; Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights) as “Vivien Harmon,” Ben’s wife; Taissa Farmiga as “Violet,” the Harmon’s teenage daughter; Jessica Lange (Tootsie, Blue Sky, Grey Gardens) in her first-ever regular series TV role as “Constance,” the Harmon’s neighbor; Evan Peters (One Tree Hill) plays “Tate Langdon,” one of Ben’s patients; and Denis O’Hare (The Good Wife) as “Larry Harvey.” Guest stars for the series include Frances Conroy (Six Feet Under) as the Harmon’s housekeeper; Alexandra Breckenridge (Dirt) as the Harmon’s housekeeper; and Jamie Brewer as Constance’s daughter.

What I like about Brad and Ryan’s style is that they know how to write complex characters. They can also come up with such compelling plots that twist the fates and emotions of characters so well that it can closely compare to the writing of Mad Men at times. The drama of their writing can be seen all over their previous works and if it has any of the darkness that Nip/Tuck had than I know they have earned their paychecks.

I like that these guys branch out to different genres of TV and never stay with the same old shtick. This will definitely be a test of their talents, especially going up against a horror juggernaut such as The Walking Dead that is heading into it’s second season. I wish them good luck in their endeavors and hopefully we will get another hit on our hands! How do you feel this show will stack up against Glee or Nip/Tuck, although polar opposites, do you feel as though this show will be just as strong?
