American Horror Story premiered last year on FX and told the tale of family moving into a haunted house. This haunted house has the ghosts of the people killed within its walls for the past 80+ years. Throughout the times, there are ghosts from all time periods each with their reasons to hang around. I’ve compiled below a list of my favorites in no particular order. Potential spoilers below.
If there was a picking order, Tate Langdon would probably be the best pick. He’s absolutely gruesome, psychotic, and spine chillingly cold. The dangers of what this man is capable of due to his history as both human and ghost are very unforgivable, but I’ll be damned if he didn’t contribute to some of the most hair raising moments of the show.
She’s both a bombshell and a creepy old women. This joint role gave us some of the more confusing plot holes in the show. Why does Moira have this ability to don herself as two different life times? How was she able to leave the house to visit her ‘mother’ [why is mother in parenthesis? I dunno, I'm not fully convinced that was the full story]. Regardless because of her, we know a lot of myth and reasoning behind the house. Such as if the body is removed from the lawn, apparently their soul can rest, etc. She’s also one of my favorites because of the image above.
Spock in full blown gay is a-okay with me. Funny because it was only in the middle of the Fall season that actor Zachary Quinto came out as a homosexual. Then I turned my head and said, ‘no wonder he plays such a good job’. All gay jokes aside, Chad is one of the more likable ghosts in the house, even if he does have cruel intentions sometimes. He’s just a gay dude looking for someone to love him back. And of course…that rubber suit…
The craziest bitch on the show. Hayden would not leave Ben Harmon alone no matter what. He even let her die, and still could not get away from her. Behind the scenes, Hayden schemed and schemed how she would get her beloved Ben back…and when her plan back fired? Well, she just went even more ape shit, and started scheming again.
I swear, we only were able to see him for just a moment. And I believe this screen still is from the very first episode when Tate lures that girl from Violet’s school. I remember a flash of light and seeing some sort of demon, but the scene had past and it was too late to rewind. From there, we received little hints that house creator Charles Montgomery had a Frankenstein complex, and as soon as the baby disappeared, I knew what he would do with the baby if they ever found him. The product is even worse than I imagined, as this thing is the inhuman spawn of man’s curiosity and madness. I actually had to look up what they officially called this thing, and Infantata itself is a pretty fearful name for a pretty fearful ghost.
