American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare  Season 6, Ep 0

This year's American Horror Story has just wrapped. After a sprawling, poppy, disjointed Season 5, the show has tried some new tricks, cut down on episodes, and told a tighter story. Playing with reality and tabloid TV, Roanoke Nightmare follows a family that buys a house in rural North Carolina, the evil they uncover, and the media frenzy that follows.

Scream Queens: Pilot  Season 1, Ep 1

In the latest horror-comedy-farce from the minds of Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy, the audience is introduced to the Kappa Kappa Tau sorority, which is being haunted by a figure in a red devil costume. Grace Gardner is our heroine (of sorts), who comes into the sorority as an effort to find out what happened to her mother so many years ago in the same house. Chanel Oberlin is the current queen of the castle in KKT, and her general unpleasantness guides the opening intrigues of the show. Crusty old dean, Cathy Munsch, has cracked open the exclusive club of KKT (much to Chanel's dismay), leading a band of misfits to rush the sorority, and provide a cast of red shirts who will likely be picked off as the season progresses.
