American Horror Story: Double Feature Starts Strong

The tenth season of FX’s horror anthology looks promising.  The creatures shown in the teasers for the first part of the season, which is called American Horror Story: Red Tide, seem more reminiscent of vampires than sirens, which many fans were expecting.

American Horror Story: Red Tide follows writer Harry Gardner who moves to Provincetown, Massachusetts to work on the screenplay for a TV pilot. Harry, played by AHS veteran Finn Wittrock, is joined by his pregnant wife, Doris (Lily Rabe), and their daughter Alma (Ryan Kiera Armstrong). Rounding out the cast is Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Frances Conroy, Billie Lourd, Angelica Ross, Adina Porter, and newcomer Macaulay Culkin.

In the first two episodes, Harry’s struggle with writer’s block feels similar to Jack Torrance in Stephen King’s The Shining, but with a bit of Nosferatu thrown in.
