I haven't seen the pilot of FX's upcoming drama "American Horror Story," but the series of video "clues" about the story and some of its characters has me anticipating the thriller even more.
It looks pretty strange.
"American Horror Story," premiering Oct. 5, comes from "Glee" creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. But I'm guessing it'll get freaky like their earlier FX series, "Nip/Tuck," did. Check out the videos above and let me know if you agree.
The first video, or clue, is title "Cello" and as you can see, shows a leater clad person playing a woman as if she were a cello. According to FX, "this mind-bending clue introduces you to two unique series characters and their rather unusual relationship."
Clue No. 2, called "Baby," shows a doll. Or is it a baby, as FX asks? Is the meaning in the familiar tune?
I'll add more clues as FX releases them. If you have an idea about what the clues reveal, you can tweet with the hashtag #ahsfx. The show's Facebook page is Facebook/American Horror Story.
Here's what I know about the series:
It centers on Ben Harmon (Dylan McDermott), a therapist who moves with his wife, Vivien, (Connie Britton) and their daughter, Violet (Taissa Farmiga), from Boston to San Francisco--and into a haunted house--in an attempt to rebuild their lives after a miscarriage and affair. Frances Conroy plays their housekeeper, Moira, while Alexandra Breckenridge stars as a younger version of the same character.
Oscar winner Jessica Lange stars as Constance, who lives next door with a daughter who has Down Syndrome. She seems to know a lot about the Harmon house. Denis O'Hare plays Larry Harvey, "the Burnt Man," a former resident of the house Evan Peters is Tate Langdon, one of Ben's patients.
I'm ready to get freaky.
