On October 5, 2011, at 10/9pm Central, the new television series American Horror Story will debut on the FX network. It’s a horror genre show about a family that moves cross country to reside in what ends up being a house haunted by the spirits of some gruesomely slaughtered victims and, assumingly, murderers. If I wasn’t excited before, I definitely am now.
This show is right up my alley. I love the horror genre and I have my entire life, so when I saw the first full trailer when I was at a movie recently, I totally fell in love. And then this article got published. Our site runners Empress Eve and Dave3 received a bloody wedding cake from these people! How cool is that!? But there was more to this story, the folks behind American Horror Story set up a site where you can register to receive artifacts from the terrible massacre that went down in this twisted house of horrors. Needless to say, I was all in.
But I don’t think I was ready for what was in store for me. I registered on a Wednesday night, and about 30 minutes after I woke up that Friday morning, I saw this.
Nice! A creepy box with a weird logo that looks like a family crest on the side, I can dig it. So, I took the book outside because, you know, who knows what’s in this box, right? After joking with my wife about seeing a severed head or some gruesome and strange souvenir, I opened the box.
In the box were several strands of packing material, but after some digging I came upon an evidence from a brutal wedding. I was more than a little disturbed by what I saw, because what I saw was a bloody garter.
Immediately, since I was outside, flies flocked to this bloody box of artifacts… because there was more. Upon further inspection, I came across another piece of the bludgeoned bride’s ensemble. And this was the poor victim’s garter belt. And unfortunately for me and my weak stomach, it’s not only bloody. It also has hair matted to the blood.
Other than the gross and uneasy feeling I have about owning a dead woman’s undergarments, this is still a really cool idea, so I really hope it can live up to the hype that I have for it now, which is going to be hard to attain, because I’m really freaking excited now. So go here and sign up for your own artifact from American Horror Story. Then go talk about it on Facebook or on Twitter using the #AHSFX hashtag.
Seriously, this seems like a fun, twisted show, so I highly encourage you to get involved in the craziness leading up to its premiere.
