American Horror Story

Series Summary
With more than 300 years having passed since the Salem witch trials, the women who managed to escape that time are now facing extinction. They have recently been the victims of an increasing number of attacks that have forced girls to be sent to a special school in New Orleans to learn how to protect themselves. Alarmed by the recent events and harboring a secret agenda, long-absent Fiona Goode, the most powerful witch of her generation, comes back into town to help protect the coven and destroy anyone who gets in her way.

  • Although the premiere is hampered by unnecessary narration and over-exposition, it's still a bewitching brew of whimsy, psychological scares, horrific atrocities and the wonderfully relentless feeling that something wicked this way comes. show more

  • American Horror Story has always been a series that loves its characters and still isn't afraid to put them through hell, and it seems like there are more layers down there than expected. show more

  • There are a LOT of characters and one hopes that Murphy & Falchuk don’t allow the program to get weighed down in subplots. Even if the show does get scattered, great performances by Lange, Bates, Bassett, Roberts, and Farmiga should keep viewers from wanting to leave this Coven. show more
