Staff and residents of the hotel include the 111-year-old “vampire”, Elizabeth/The Countess, and her longtime paramour, the former drug-addict Donovan, as well as Donovan’s mother, the manager and front desk clerk Iris; the eccentric transgender bartender Liz Taylor; and the Countess’ vengeance-obsessed ex-lover, Ramona Royale.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So far, AHS has been a bit of an on and off sort of series for me. Sometimes I like it better than I expected and others I just didn’t. I hated the way that “Coven” ended but felt “Asylum” was not too bad and “Freak Show” had its moments but was more sad than anything else. Of course this is a horror series so I guess I should not expect it to be rainbows and unicorns when its all said and done. I will be programming my DVR to capture the series and since I seem to be the only one in my small circle of media folks watching it, I don’t risk any spoilers. What about you? Are you still tuning in to “American Horror Story”? What do you hope to find when you check into their Hotel from Hell. Chime in down below in the comments since its good to learn your thoughts.
