I am so conflicted I don’t where to begin. One part of me wants to just eat this poster up it’s so sexy and another part of me wants to run screaming from the room. American Horror Story has had me all excited for weeks and now the time is nigh. You know somethings going to be good when the commercials scare the bejesus out of you.
Created by the geniuses of Glee (really?) and Nip/Tuck (definitely!) - Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk -it is what some are calling “an overwrought mess” but others are saying it has a Twin Peaks feel and that can’t be all bad. And after watching it on Wednesday I have to kind of agree with both views. Some 33 million folks watched and I bet they all felt the same to some degree, we shall see how it progresses.
The casting is off the hook though with television veterans Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton as estranged (and I must add somewhat clueless) husband and wife who bring their own brand of inner demons into their home.
The one thing that most critics say about this new show is that it is genuinely scary with lots of jumps and frights and I have to agree so don’t sit too close to the television and keep the popcorn out of your lap.
I love Glee and could take or leave Nip/Tuck but they truly had me at hello when they cast the powerhouse Oscar winning actress Jessica Lang in the role of nosy neighbor Constance. Come on! Every horror story has a nosy neighbor, most are killed by act two. How wonderful that we get to see one live and tell the tale.
