American Horror Story Season 1 Blu-Ray Review

One of the most talked about new television shows last year, FX's American Horror Story, is now on Blu-Ray and DVD. Nominated for 17 Emmys, the show created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk (the guys behind "Glee" and "Nip/Tuck") successfully brought the modern horror genre to the small screen.

The Harmon family, Dylan McDermott (The Campaign), Connie Britton ("Friday Night Lights"), and Tarissa Farmiga (Higher Ground), move across the country to start anew. The problem is that they have moved into the infamous "Murder House" complete with a strange, southern belle neighbor played by Jessica Lange (Blue Sky) in a Golden Globe winning performance. A slew of supporting characters including Kate Mara ("24"), Zachary Quinto ("Heroes", Star Trek), Frances Conroy ("Six Feet Under"), Mena Suvari (American Beauty), and Denis O'Hare ("True Blood") round out the stellar cast.

The Blu-Ray contains all 12 episodes from Season 1 on 3 discs. The Special Features include: Audio Commentary on Pilot by Ryan Murphy, Behind the Fright: The Making of American Horror Story, The Murder House presented by Eternal Darkness Tours of Hollywood, Overture to Horror: Creating the Title Sequence, and Out of the Shadows: Meet the House Ghosts.

Each one of the special features is great! I would have liked to see some commentary on a few of the other episodes. Also, I think the cover worked as a poster to create buzz, but the cover of the Season 1 Blu-Ray should be something different, but other than that it's great. If you haven't seen the show, I highly recommend it to any horror fan!

American Horror Story Season 1 Blu-Ray gets a ghastly 9 out of 10 Haunted Houses!

Be sure to watch the Season 2 premiere of American Horror Story: Asylum on October 17th only on FX!
