Fall TV Preview

American Horror Story: Watch the First Five (Very Spooky) Minutes Now!

You thought the house in Amityville Horror was freaky deaky? Wait until you step foot inside the haunted mansion at the center of FX’s American Horror Story. 

But don’t take our word for it. Check out the following video (provided by AOL TV) featuring the first five minutes of the Oct. 5 premiere and see for yourself.

Scoop: Heroes‘ Zachary Quinto Joins FX’s American Horror Story For Major Arc

First, a little exposition: Every episode of the show — which stars Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott and Taissa Farmiga as a family that relocates from Boston to Los Angeles — opens with a flashback to a moment in the house’s history. This one takes viewers to 1978, when two ginger-headed twin boys foolishly make their way into the creeptastic basement.

You might want to grab a pillow before you hit play.

    So excited for this show!!! I think this may be Ryan Murphy’s best show he’s ever created.

  2. João Amaral says:

    this fukin weird. its going to be awesome.

  3. Sivat says:

    I wish this was on in Canada.

  4. Carrie says:

    It seems pretty intense, and that was only the first 5 minutes! This isn’t really a genre we see on TV that often, but I’m excited to see how it is received by audiences.
    I’ll be watching for sure.

  5. Martin says:

    I always notice tiny things, was the animal on the ground meant to look like it was still alive??, It was breathing.

    • ashlie says:

      I thought the same thing – but I think it was meant as something that should have warned the boys, since they should have realized that the attack on the possum was recent, know what I mean?

  6. Lily says:

    I’m not the biggest fan of Ryan Murphey to be honest, but I do love Connie Britton and the premise has potential so I’ll give it a shot.

  7. Jess says:

    @Martin I noticed that too, and you could see the pool of blood expanding and im pretty sure you no longer bleed out once you die. Maybe its a hint to something else in the show?

  8. Adam says:

    Gingers don’t have souls.

  9. Jon says:

    Um. . . that wasn’t scary. That was pretty lame.

  10. Jared says:

    I’m with Matt! Wait until you see the end of pilot!

  11. Karissa says:

    Haha was that the Killer Victorian Infant? Looks more like a deranged mental patient… So excited!

  12. Anthony Newhall says:

    How can I check out the first few episodes?

  13. Alice says:

    Those were some creepy ginger, they totally fit Elliott from Scrubs’ phobia. And they were mean, I was rooting for the house before they even got in the door. “We’ve got bats!” Not anymore suckers.

  14. Jenn says:

    I’m never going to sleep now. Why did I watch that before bed? It’s pretty freaking scary!

  15. Amely says:

    I want to watch this show so bad but I know I will not be able to handle it :(

  16. Jay says:

    I wasn’t scared of that clip… I’ll be giving this show a shot because I love Connie Britton, but eh. I wish something like this would have made it onto HBO or Showtime, although FX does typically tend to push limits.

  17. Octavia345 says:

    I’m so excited for this show!

  18. Albatross says:

    As I was about that age in 1978, I can assure you that we did not say “awesome.” We said “cool.” Also, I don’t think those explosive snap things were available yet.

  19. glick says:

    I wanna watch this show soooo bad, BUT I know it’s already complete garbage after this 5 min scene.

    Get a clue, people. I guarantee this show will fall flat on its ass with wretched, boring writing. It’s already flat in the first 5 min of the pilot!! It seriously cannot get better than this.
