American Horror Story Season 4 (and Beyond): 7 Possible, Mostly Plausible Premises
American Horror Story: Mars
We’ve long said that the freakshow is out of this world. So why not go there, literally, and maybe catch up with the ETs from Asylum? The one downside: In space, no one can hear you scream.
American Horror Story: D.C.
The only thing that could possibly be more terrifying than actual Washington politics would be Washington politics conducted by minions of Satan hoping to install the anti-Christ in the Oval Office, Omen style. Handle that, Olivia Pope.
American Horror Story: Funland
Although it’s Evan Peters’ beguiling smile that ushers you into the Tunnel of Love, it’s Denis O’Hare’s merciless sneer that greets you as you exit — ack! — the Hall of Mirrors!
American Horror Story: Shady Pines
Imagine Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates and Frances Conroy as the feisty denizens of a retirement home. Then imagine that the denizens of said retirement home have all actually been dead for years. Shudder!
American Horror Story: Clubland
With an EDM beat to drown out screams and strobe lights to obscure blood splatter, Lily Rabe could make an evening of partying even more frightening than A Night at the Roxbury.
American Horror Story: Camp Blood
Remember how freaked out you were the first time you saw Friday the 13th? Now take that fear and multiply it by the thought of it being Bloody Face (or — gasp! — worse) beneath that hockey mask! Suddenly, short-shorts and Betsy Palmer aren’t the scariest things at a 1970s-set campground, are they?
American Horror Story: Congo
In as twisted a love story as ever there was, Jessica Lange is stalked over decades, all the way from Africa to Manhattan after giving a plus-sized gorilla jungle fever.
