American Horror Story: Murder House (2011)
Critic Consensus: Convoluted yet effective, American Horror Story is strange, gory, and twisted enough to keep viewers hooked.

News & Interviews for American Horror Story: Murder House
It feels more like the place where old horror movies have come to die.
Viewers who like the horror genre and the offbeat Murphy/Falchuk approach, and who are willing to put in enough serious time to absorb all the nuances, will fall in love.
This gourmet junk food gives you some pure evil, and it takes some axes to some evildoers, and the American type represented has a predilection for French maids. Bon appetit.
It's a lot to process, and at times too much to take. Still, Horror Story often is a wonder.
Audience Reviews for American Horror Story: Murder House
A great start to a unique series, even if it gets convoluted and hard to follow by the middle. It's high enjoyable and the acting is simply fantastic. It's nice to have a good horror television series on that doesn't pull any punches. I'm looking forward to future seasons.
A cohesive meshing of several horror stories focusing on a haunted mansion in the suburbs.
Sexy, scary and uber-stylish, the campy anthology show AHS opens with a bang and refuses to fizzle right until the end where it doesn't sparkle for as long as its audience had hoped. It's unfortunately too drawn-out and the liveliness of the show doesn't appeal as much towards the end as it begins to take itself too seriously. It's still incredibly fun to watch and features a gimp ghost and Frances Conroy, what's not to love?
