Series: American Horror Story

American Horror Story is a Horror anthology series created by Ryan Murphy (creator of Nip/Tuck, another FX series) and Brad Falchuk (who are also two of the Glee co-creators). The series is known as a "movie buff's delight", as its plots, soundtrack and visual style thrive on numerous classic movies and horror stories (including, but not limited to, The Shining, Frankenstein, Bram Stoker's Dracula, The Sixth Sense, Twisted Nerve, Taxi Driver, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, and Carrie, with some elements of Supernatural Soap Opera series such as Twin Peaks) as well as pay homages to American urban legends and folklore.
