Your Next Box Set: American Horror Story
If you’re on the lookout for a new box set to obsess over and spend your evenings devouring then each week hmv.com will be recommending you a series to cosy up to those cold nights.
This week, in celebration of the Season 3 release (Monday 20th), we recommend American Horror Story…
What is it?
An utter lack of restraint in horror. We’re talking ghosts, weird experiments, serial killers, aliens, evil nuns, witches, mad Nazi doctors, school shootings, exorcisms, things going bump in the night and things going bump…in the day. Over the three series so far we plough through this collection, centring on different characters and locations. Including a haunted house, an insane asylum, a witch coven and a freak show.
Who’s in it?
Created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, it’s filled with a plethora of actors, led by the great Jessica Lange, who earned an Emmy, a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award for her work here. Also starring Evan Peters, Frances Conroy, Sarah Paulson, True Blood’s Denis O’Hare, Lily Rabe and We’re The Millers actress Emma Roberts.
Why should I watch it?
Located in present day Los Angeles, 1960s Massachusetts and 1800s-2013 New Orleans it throws a dizzy variety of horror at your screen, with theme music that over-eggs the horror, it’s awesome.
Describe the show in three words…
An addictive, terror-filled, anthology.
American Horror Story: Freak Show series four has just started in America. Here is the trailer for it…
