AMERICAN HORROR STORY
SEASON 1

When this show was first announced I very excited to see what it was all about. I liked the cast for it and eventually when the teasers were released I was all about it. I have always been a big horror fan and like most I am all about a good ghost story, especially a series. This is the first season of the show that would eventually be named "Murder house" for obvious reasons. I am happy to announce that this show was great as was the next season as is the current one now.

The first season is all about a family of three who move into an old house, a house with history and guests who don't want to leave. Father Ben, wife Vivien and daughter Violet are trying t start over in life after a series of setbacks. Setbacks such as Vivien giving birth to a stillborn baby as well as her husband cheating on her with one of his students, who may not be completely out of the picture. All seems well enough until they hear the stories of their new house, "Murder House" as the locals call it. Things start up from there as previous residents of the home seem to not be able to leave. The reason being that some where up to twenty people have died in the house.

This was an excellent show that kept me interested all the way to the very last episode. What made it even better was that I knew that I was going to get an ending since every season would be a different story. What better way to start out with than a haunted house tale. They way that the ghosts interact with the living in this show is great since they actually seem like real people who are still there. Now that is nothing new in this kind of story but the characters are very well written and acted as well.

Dylan McDermott [husband], Connie Britton [wife], and Taissa Farmiga [daughter] are excellent as the family that moves in. each has their own problems to deal with and portray here and as the lead cast members the majority of the show falls on them. Still everyone here throughout the entire season is great from the smallest role to all the supporting roles. The writing, direction, and the way the show was shot all match the performances on every level.

Now this show is not for everybody as some have called it a little risky, especially as far as the sexuality goes. I don't disagree with these people but none of it bothered me. For the most part I think it helped the story along, especially with McDermott's character. With this set you get an audio commentary along with many behind the scenes stuff. I do recommend this show to all horror or haunted house/ghost story fans. Season two is now out on DVD and Blu-Ray called "Asylum" and season three {Coven] is currently on TV.
