With a name like
American Horror Story, no one goes into this series expecting a barrel of
laughs. Instead, we are greeted with some of the bloodiest, freakiest, and most
twisted scenes ever put to the small screen.
This cultural icon of
a horror series, created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, explores a vast array
of different time-periods and sub-genres from season to season. Consequently,
viewers are spoiled for choice when it comes to the gruesome and disturbing.
Want to watch a family be psychologically tortured by ghosts in a murder house?
You got it. The violent spree of a mass-murdering clown more your speed? Lucky you, because they have that too.
American Horror Story
prides itself on those hard-to-watch moments that send hearts racing and hairs
raising. As such, many episodes feature such unsettling content, that you would
not be blamed for admitting defeat and popping on your favourite episode of
Peppa Pig to decompress.
If you don’t have the
stomach for experiencing these episodes first-hand, or are just in for a casual
stroll down repressed-memory lane, read on and learn of the ten most disturbing
episodes in all of American Horror Story history.
