FX Celebrates Halloween With An American Horror Story Marathon

FX will be celebrating Halloween this year with an American Horror Story marathon. What better way to spend the spooky holiday than watching FX’s dark and creepy new series? The marathon will consist of the first four episodes, one of which is set to debut for the first time tomorrow night. Details ahead!

American Horror Story is a drama created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, and centers on a family who moved into a house where very bad things happen. The series is a dark drama, and not exactly kid-friendly (factoring in the gore and the mature content).

The marathon is set to air Monday, October 31st at 10:00 p.m. starting with the pilot and ending with the first part of the Halloween episode, which features an appearance by Zachary Quinto (Heroes, Star Trek). That episode will debut on October 26th, with the second part set to air on November 2nd.
