Be afraid but oh so excited! American Horror Story is coming to the UK!

by Lynn Connolly

If you’re a fan of excellent drama, and a fan or horror and creepiness, then American Horror Story is for you!

I’ve been lucky enough to see a few episodes already, and I was hooked from the get go…

The show premieres on FX in the UK on November 7th at 10pm, and if like me, you go to bed before most toddlers, be sure to Sky+ it because honestly, you’re going to miss a huge treat if you don’t!

So what’s it about I hear you cry? Click ‘Read more’ to find out and to see some awesome preview clips, including the first few minutes of the pilot episode…

American Horror Story focuses on the Harmon family, who consist of husband Ben, wife Vivien and daughter Violet.

They are played by actors Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton and Taissa Farmiga in the above order.

Having been unfaithful to Vivien, psychiatrist Ben agrees to move the family away from Boston – the scene of his indiscretion – and they choose a beautiful old house a long way from home.

However, the house plays host to a number of spirits, and few of them are up to any good…

It’s also been the scene of rape, murder, suicide, and death by pretty much every grisly form known to modern man.

Created by Glee mastermind Ryan Murphy – along with his writing buddy Brad Falchuk – American Horror Story is a far cry from the jolly goings on of McKinley High!

In the pilot episode, we get to see some of the house’s hideous past, and the Harmon’s new neighbour, Constance, who’s played brilliantly well by Jessica Lange.

We also get to meet the resident housekeeper – who’s played by both Six Feet Under star Frances Conroy and Alexandra Breckenridge – who, as you’ll find out, is seen differently by those looking at her…

Randy Ben sees her as a young temptress who’s forever trying to bed him, while Vivien sees her as an aging lady with a dicky eye…

You get to see why she has a deformity to her eye around episode three, and it’s a Do Not Miss moment!

Here’s the UK trailer for the show…

I can tell you, it just gets better!
