The First Five Minutes of 'American Horror Story': VIDEO


Glee creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk present their new TV series American Horror Story on Wednesday and while some of you may think that Glee has turned into a horror story this season, there are no Lea Michele or Darren Criss show tune numbers in Murphy's new serial.

Promos for the new show have been pretty hard to avoid and have focused on stars Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton, Taissa Farmiga, Jessica Lange and Frances Conroy.

Now, the first five minutes of the show have been released, and while it doesn't feature any of those stars, it does feature a set of twin bully redheads getting their comeuppance.

  2. I was too distracted to be scared. I kept thinking how awesome that house would be if a gay couple bought it and started renovating it...

  4. I kept thinking... yeah, right. Ginger twins with braces and THEY are the bullies. The writer doesn't know much about types!

  8. Well, looks very interesting and already better than Glee, which I think is horrible.
    @Lynda, the point is to make people we don't see as bullies to bully.

  9. The bully in A Christmas Story also was a ginger with braces. And so was a guy I was in HS with in the 90s.

  10. Redheads have always been nothing but trouble!

  11. I'll be tuning in. I really like a good horror movie. And those two punks deserve their fate for smashing those beautiful, colorful lead glass windows and clay tiles. Barbarians.

  12. Brian-hilarious. I was thinking the same thing!

  13. It will be so nice to have Jessica Lange on a weekly basis.

  14. A mash-up of GLEE & HORROR THAT would be a hit show!

  15. How many clichés can you cram into 4:53? I can't count fast enough to tell.

    Entertainment isn't so much written as aggregated from an encyclopedia of tropes. If there are human beings involved in the process, it's only because they're still cheaper than software.

    It isn't the bullies I want to see eviscerated; it's the producers of this dreck. The morons who watch it are also on the list.

  16. Jessica Lange is reason enough to watch.

  17. That was so amateurish it is pitiful. It didn’t give me the least… feeling, let alone fear. If anything, it was childish. But hey, maybe it is destined to children. That I didn’t take account about.

  18. That was creepily effective tease...

  19. Very Stephen King...I liked it....sometimes the best horror stories are the old tried and true, haunted houses are my favorite. Throw in 1950's rock ballads, Dylan McDermott and somebody in a french maid's outfit ....count me in!

  20. It didn't scare me, but I just thought what a gorgeous house and yard!!!

  21. How to write a horror pilot checklist:

    Twins motif from "The Shining" - check

    Eerie David Lynch-esque child in surreal coloured dress - check

    Abandoned Edwardian mansion a la "The Haunting" - check

    Ironic bully comeuppance from "It" - check

    Pickled fetuses borrowed from David Cronenberg - check

    Pale faced basement dweller (see Cesare, "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari") - check

  22. I think it's cool that they're hiring a down's syndrome child as an actor, but otherwise i have to say that bryan pretty much nailed it

  23. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like the show, but honestly, I love it. I’ve been raving about it to all of my friends and family but I do feel bad for DIRECTV customers because they can’t watch it due to the FOX negotiations. I know exactly how they feel because I was a DISH Network customer and employee around the same time last year it was rough. I know that DISH fought to keep the lowest prices in the industry and luckily, DISH and FOX were able to come to a long term agreement so I can keep all of my favorite channels and not even pay an arm and a leg for them. I do recommend that people switch to DISH now because this show is not worth losing!
