The primary poster for Ryan Murphy’s new American horror story spin-off sequence is Creepy AF
Ryan Murphy is back to what he does best: scare us.
Fresh from the September debut of Ratched – the Sarah Paulson-led drama inspired by One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest – Murphy hit up on social media to find out what’s in store for the future of American horror history. The answer? A completely separate spin-off that already sounds like it does justice to some of the best AHS seasons (Murder House and Coven are frankly sacrosanct).
In a new poster, Murphy confirmed that the offshoot of his beloved anthology series is called American Horror Stories. Unlike the original franchise, each episode of Stories will put an entirely new story in the spotlight.
“It’s the AHS spin-off,” Murphy wrote. “We’re making 16 one-hour, stand-alone episodes exploring horror myths, legends, and lore. Many of these episodes will feature AHS stars you know and love. More to come.”
The frightening new poster for it shows a faceless latex woman with a heart-shaped blood stain dripping from her lips. Her portrait looks like a broken egg with a spider web woven into it. Strange and very Murphy.
