FX’s American Horror Story won’t debut until next week, but it’s already been getting some intriguing buzz. The premise sounds normal enough: Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott, and Taissa Farmiga star as the Harmon family, who relocate from Boston to a haunted house in Los Angeles; Jessica Lange plays their neighbor. However, early reviews have indicated that it’s outrageously over-the-top and very, very weird in its execution. Which, actually, shouldn’t come as a surprise seeing as it comes from the minds of Glee and Nip/Tuck creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuck.
After the jump, check out the first five minutes of the show. It looks like pretty standard horror movie stuff here, but Murphy, who directed the pilot, does a fine job of setting up an eerie mood.
