Ranking the ‘American Horror Story’ Seasons So Far — Which Are the Scariest?
Few series have had as long-lasting and as varied a run as FX’s American Horror Story. Across 11 seasons (it’s been renewed through its 13th!), we’ve been everywhere from a haunted murder house to a creepy hotel to the Roanoke colony, with plenty of memorable scares along the way. The anthology show has crossed over so many genres and subgenres of horror that there’s something for everyone, which may be its biggest strength.
And with the spinoff American Horror Stories (featuring a different storyline each episode) now part of the expanding universe (it returned for a second season in July), fans have a lot to enjoy from the franchise.
But across the first 11 seasons of AHS, which are the scariest and which ones missed the mark? Below, we took on the difficult task of ranking them by fear factor as well as the overall quality of each season’s vastly different storyline.
