New FX show for retro gamers?

0 Comments 21 August 2011

When New TV Shows first heard that the creative forces behind Nip/Tuck and Glee were developing a new show in the horror genre, our indifference was palpable. Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuck may have come up with a cultural phenomenon with their spiritual successor to the High School Musical films, but neither that or Nip/Tuck before it have ever bothered the top of our must-watch list.

All that said, the newly released teaser trailer for American Horror Story has upped our interest considerably — purely because it looks less like a TV show and more like an FMV-heavy PC adventure game from the 1990s. Seriously. Look:


See what we mean? If someone sent us a link to that video and declared that it was a sequel to The 7th Guest or Phantasmagoria then we’d be totally on board, so it’s only fair that we give AHS a chance. As far as we can see, it’s got three things going for it right now:

  • As mentioned, the promotional material makes it look like a modern-day follow up to Mega CD perv-em-up Night Trap, meaning it could well turn out to be simultaneously both the best and worst TV show ever
  • It stars the fabulous Connie Britton, who’s coming off the back of great work on Friday Night Lights
  • It’s going to be on FX, which tends to have a better hit to miss ratio than many of its competitors

Judge for yourself on October 5th, when American Horror Story makes its debut.
