  1. I have never watched American Horror Story. I’m kind of concerned it would give me nightmares. It looks like it has an excellent cast though.

  2. I’m not a fan of horror movies or shows so this one is not on my list. That said, I heard that it is an excellent show with lots of talented actors. 🙂

  3. I will always feel Murder House was the best season of AHS. There is something about that original, perhaps the novelty of the show, that will always be my favorite.
