Horror is a genre rarely suitable for television. It usually arrives in the form of people re-telling their scary encounters with ghosts, aliens, werewolves and other supernatural entities on shows that air dramatic reenactments. Or TV anthologies that cycle through weekly plots.
The American Horror Story series closely follows the same cyclical format, but extends it across an entire season. Instead of showcasing a different story every week, the show features a distinct storyline per season. Season 1, “Murder House,” tells the story of a family surviving the tortuous ghosts of previous tenants that previously inhabited the family’s residential home and now haunt the property. Season 2, “Asylum,” follows the doctors and patients of the Briarcliff Mental Institution and their adventures in experimentation of scientific and supernatural endeavors, which include demonic possession and alien abductions. Season 3, “Coven,” highlights the pursuit of a trio of witches to destroy their enemies. Season 4, “Freak Show,” takes place in 1952 Florida and describes the discrimination facing “freaks” inside one of the last freak show circuses in the country. As episodes unfold, it’s clear that multiple dark presences have sinister motives for the “freaks.” The series has earned numerous entertainment nominations and awards.
