American Horror Story: From "Murder House" to "1984", 10 Years of AHS

No, there isn't some demon, ghost, alien, mermaid, clown-dressed serial killer, or the son of Satan messing with your calendars. Viewers are now less than a week away from Ryan Murphy & Brad Falchuk's American Horror Story: Double Feature (Part 1: Red Tide), and Murphy is following up on a promise he made late last month to honor the horror franchise's 10th anniversary. What follows is a look at a thread released earlier today that included nine very cool mini-recaps, one for each of the popular series' seasons. Even with having watched all nine seasons at least once before, the following clips were a nice "refresher course" on the show's origins (and got us wanting to binge "Apocalypse").

"Throughout the month of August, I'll be celebrating A DECADE of 'American Horror Stories' with original content — interviews, podcasts, behind-the-scenes looks, and much more unearthing ten years of memories and untold tales. It seems like yesterday when Brad Falchuk and I called up Jessica Lange, Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Denis O'Hare, Taissa Farmiga, and Frances Conroy and said 'hey…wanna make this fun weird thing with us?' Thanks to the cast and crew and most of all THE FANS for making AHS the gift that goes on giving. And thanks to [Graphic Designer Fosterlands] for this amazing VHS graphic," Murphy wrote in the caption to his Instagram post (which you can check out below) to announce a month-long celebration of the AHS universe:
