American Horror Story doesn't shy away from the horror genre, as evidenced by its name. Whether it's a haunted house, an asylum or a school for witches, FX's anthology series has helped to bring horror to the forefront on television.
American Horror Story: Coven brings Frankenstein alive with very weird love story
But the series has mostly done so by raising the stakes so high that death has become the norm. Murder House killed off the entire Harmon family.
