Psychotic, twisted, funny, a little bit freaky, and certainly not what you’d expect from Glee co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. Far removed from its preppy musical forerunner, AHS delivers a different and nightmarish theme each season and populates it with the same talented cast. Generally raising more questions than it answers, this macabre treat frequently pushes the envelope of good taste. And it has Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates!  Seasons available – 4 (Season 5 out Oct 6)
