‘American Horror Stories’ gives Nostalgia to bringing audiences back

Popular author and producer Ryan Murphy’s show “American Horror Story” has been ruling streaming and TV platforms for a decade. In the middle of season nine, released Sept. 2019, and the expected season ten, premiering Aug. 25, a new invigorating spin-off arises. “American Horror Stories” offers a nostalgic yet creative interpretation of the series, splitting away from the structure of its predecessor.

Murphy’s plan to make a spin-off while his long series is as yet running was a wise decision. Watchers can tune in at whatever point they wish for this new spin-off since the episodes are their own horror story plotlines — focusing on one episode with a singular theme is very different from focusing on watching an entire season.

Albeit the structure is smart from a marketing standpoint, the first two episodes don’t offer new or inventive plot lines. The plot is like season one of the spin-off’s predecessor and doesn’t offer numerous turns for fans of “American Horror Story: Murder House.”

A New “Rubber (Wo)man”

The first two episodes of “American Horror Stories” start comparably to season one of “Murder House” — a naive family of three move into the sought-after Murder House and rapidly discover that their home life is going to fall apart because of the spirits that frequent the property.

Murphy splits from his standard projecting of entertainers by offering new, yet somewhat recognizable faces like Gavin Creel and Sierra McCormick. Murphy brought back “American Horror Story” veteran Matt Bomer, an ideal choice to finish the cast.

In this spinoff, Scarlett (McCormick) spearheads the gruesome acts, rather than the “Murder House” lead Violet (Taissa Farmiga). The episodes follow Scarlett as she moves into the house with her fathers who need to remodel and sell the property. Scarlett has a dim fixation on rough sexual demonstrations, which is uncovered to the entire school through a live-streamed trick by mean girl Maya (Paris Jackson) and her companions.

The infamous rubber man suit, worn by Tate Langdon (Evan Peters) in “Murder House,” presently takes over Scarlett’s life. The main difference in the plot of “American Horror Stories” and “Murder House” is that the new resident of the house is the one driving the murderous acts with her ghost girlfriend, Ruby (Kaia Gerber). Ruby and Scarlett discover love that is deep, yet harmful, and Ruby is driven to kill Scarlett’s all father her in the Murder House forever.

Ghost Stories with Fresh Nostalgia

The plot of “American Horror Stories” felt recognizable, giving a sense of nostalgia for returning watchers with a re-visitation of the location of the first season. Be that as it may, the episodes eventually contained something similar through-line as “Murder House.” The initial two episodes keep on investigating the Murder House’s confidential from season one — the individuals who pass on the property can’t leave. In any case, they add a new twist to the story — on All Hallows’ Eve, the dead are presently permitted to roam the Earth.

Murphy’s new show is making traction for the spin-off’s predecessor, ideally attracting more individuals to watch when season ten comes out toward the month’s end. The stand-alone horror stories premieres each Thursday on FX networks and Hulu, offering watchers a chance to get engulfed into new, creative, scary, myths and stories every week.
