Psychiatrist Dr. Ben Harmon (Dylan McDermott), his wife Vivien (Connie Britton) and teenage daughter Violet (Taissa Farmiga) move from Boston to Los Angeles to start a new life after Vivien gives birth to a stillborn baby and Ben has an affair with one of his students. When Ben's mistress subsequently visits him in the hope of rekindling the relationship she sets in motion a chain of events that will have terrifying consequences for all concerned. The episodes are: 'Pilot', 'Home Invasion', 'Murder House', 'Halloween: Part 1', 'Halloween: Part 2', 'Piggy Piggy', 'Open House', 'Rubber Man', 'Spooky Little Girl', 'Smoldering Children', 'Birth' and 'Afterbirth'. In the second season, 'Asylum', the past and present events at a Massachusetts asylum for the criminally insane are brought to life. At the Briarcliff Mental Institution, run by the Catholic church and its founder Monsignor Timothy Howard (Joseph Fiennes), journalist Lana Winters (Sarah Paulson) arrives to investigate claims of patient mistreatment. It's not long, however, before she finds herself confronting untold horrors as the evil that permeates the building, along with the deranged serial killer known as Bloody Face (Zachary Quinto), begin to make their presence felt.

In the third season, 'Coven', the descendants of a Salem coven take up residency within Miss Robichaux's Academy boarding school. Run by 'the supreme one' known as Fiona (Jessica Lange), a witch who possesses many powers and abilities, the coven also houses Zoe (Farmiga), who can induce a brain haemorrhage in any man by having sex with him, Madison (Emma Roberts), a child movie star who can move objects with her mind, and Nan (Jamie Brewer), a young girl with Down syndrome who can hear the thoughts of others.

Haunted by its founder James Patrick March (Evan Peters) and the 111-year-old vampire Countess Elizabeth (Lady Gaga), just checking in for the night can be an interesting experience...
