Creator Ryan Murphy says every image in the title sequence represents something in the story, which will be explained by the time the ninth episode airs.
Another sneak peek to "American Horror Story" is released to tease viewers how scary the new series is. The opening credits sequence to the Ryan Murphy-created show, which makes its way out via Entertainment Weekly, is filled with cuts of scenes from a dark basement, featuring creepy stuffs like old photos, fetus in jars and skulls among others.
"The title sequence is almost like a mystery," Murphy explains. "By the time you see the ninth episode of this season, every image in that title sequence will be explained. So for example, 'What are the jars in the basement? What is the mystery of the floating white Christening dress? Why is somebody holding hedge clippers that are bloody?' Each time you watch it and you watch the week's episode you'll be able to say, 'Oh that's why that's in there!' "
The opening credits sequence is created by Kyle Cooper and his company Prologue who made the acclaimed openers for "Se7en" and "The Walking Dead". Featured in the clip is an original song called "American Horror Story" which is created by sound designer Cesar Davila-Irizarry and former Nine Inch Nails member Charlie Clouser.
"American Horror Story" itself follows a family who moves from Boston to a haunted San Francisco home as an attempt to rebuild their relationship after a miscarriage and affair. Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton and Taissa Farmiga star on the drama show which will debut Wednesday, October 5 at 10 P.M. on FX.
