I was not going to watch this because I’m not really into horror but I decided to give it a look. Four episodes later, I’m still watching. Something about the show is compelling. Watching the characters deal with what’s going on in the house draws me in. The show follows the Harmons as they have made their move from Boston to the Los Angeles to get a fresh start after a miscarriage and Dr. Ben Harmon’s extramarital affair with a student. The house they purchased is known locally as the “Murder House” because of all the murders that have occurred there since it has been standing.
As the weeks go by, you start to figure out who is real and who isn’t really there. It’s interesting that the maid Moira looks like an old lady to women, but to men she’s a hot young number who can’t keep her hands off Dr. Harmon. Dr. Harmon is treating a young man who seems to be a part of the house, but Dr. Harmon thinks he’s an actual patient. Ben and Vivien’s daughter Violet has bonded with the young man, Tate Langdon who isn’t all that nice a person.
If you like horror stories you’ll like this show. The subject matter in the show creeps me out just a bit. That’s why I watch it during the day time. Not that I’m scared, I just hate having bad dreams.
