First Impressions: American Horror Story Season One

American Horror Story

American Horror Story has everything you want in a horror story.

Haunted house? Check.

Creepy child communicating with the dead? Check.

Spooky twins? Check.

Creepy neighbours? Check.

Troubled family moving to escape past traumas? Check.

Daughter falling for troubled kid? Check.

In some ways it seems traditional, in others it seems overly clichéd, often both at the same time. Yet is seems pretty decent. The characters are interesting and they are well written. It is also pretty creepy, which is a low bar most horrors miss these days.

I’ve only seen one episode so far, but am enthused by it.
