American Horror Story: Blu Ray Review

Rating: R16
Released by Universal Home Entertainment

It's the horror series which really redefined the anthology TV series.

Friday Night Lights star Connie Britton, Taissa Farmiga, Jessica Lange and Dylan McDermott star in the show, which centres on the Harmon family, rocked by adultery. They move into a new home in the heart of Hollywood, but one which no-one will touch because the last owners were murdered within.

Gradually, the Harmons come to realise something is amiss in this house - but are they strong enough as a unit to see off the various perils and problems?

American Horror Story Season 1 is a game changing piece of TV. Each episode, from Glee creator Ryan Murphy is a masterclass in suspense, horror and intrigue. Throw in a top notch cast, and this is a show which gets it right from get go, with spot on acting, impressive tension and a season long mystery which is gripping and horrifying in equal measures. Part American social commentary, it also dares to go further than some shows have done for a very long time - and for that alone, it deserves to be lauded and seen by all.

Extras: 2 and a half hours of excellent stuff; making of, about the murder house, creating the titles, Paleyfest convention

Rating: 8/10
