Spoilers for American Horror Story: Season 6

Last week, the creators of American Horror Story flipped the script in a way rarely, if ever, done before in television history. For five episodes of Season 6 we watched “My Roanoke Nightmare” showing the re-enactments of the Miller family and their harrowing ordeal in a haunted North Carolina colonial mansion. Actors Audrey (Sarah Paulson) and Dominic (Cuba Gooding Jr.) played the roles of Shelby (Lily Rabe) and Matt (Andre Holland), and they were stalked by vengeance-seeking ghosts led The Butcher, portrayed by Agnes Mary Winstead (Kathy Bates). That story we discovered was actually the highest TV show of the year and now producers want a sequel. So director Sidney James (Cheyenne Jackson) has the perfect pitch, “Return To Roanoke: 3 Days In Hell,” where the real characters and the actors who played them come together “Big Brother” style in a haunted reality show. Of course staging the show at a real haunted house does not end well. We are informed by graphic that only one person survives the ordeal and everything recorded is found footage. Already one of the new cast was killed as Rory (Evan Peters) was murdered by the nurse ghosts, fulfilling the “R” for their MURDER wall”¦

Spoilers for American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare

Throughout the first half of season 6 of American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare, we followed the Millers, Matt (Andre Holland) and Shelby (Lily Rabe) telling the cameras their story. Their colonial home in North Carolina was haunted by the first settlers of the Roanoke colony, led by The Butcher, Thomasin White (Kathy Bates). Thomasin, with the help of a witch (Lady Gaga) slaughtered her entire clan and family and have been returning from the dead every blood moon to rid people from their ancestral land.

‘American Horror Story’ Renewed For A 7th Season!
  |  @   |  

Only three episodes into American Horror Story: Roanoke, the series 6th season on the FX network, and it is already picked up for a 7th season. Fresh off two more Emmy wins, the show created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk will return in 2017, to once again ruin bedtimes with their unique brand of horror. It was an easy call for FX execs, as the premiere episode of this season was the third highest rated broadcast on the network for the adults 18-34 demographic. The creators ran a genius viral marketing campaign, keeping the theme of the season a secret, and encouraging the fans to posts their guesses after countless video clues.

Last week on American Horror Story, we learned more of the story that beset the Miller family, Shelby (Lily Rabe) and Matt (Andre Holland) portrayed in re-enactments by Sarah Paulson and Cuba Gooding Jr. It wasn’t enough that Shelby was attacked by who she thought were locals trying to scare them out of the colonial North Carolina house. Matt was the target this time, having visions of nurses murdering elderly patients and painting the word MURDER in blood on their walls. It turns out he didn’t imagine everything as they both stumble across a hatch where they find a videotape left by Dr. Elias Cunningham (Denis O’Hare) detailing the house’s history as an old folks home where sister nurses did indeed murder patients. If that wasn’t bad enough, Matt’s addiction riddled sister Lee (Adina Porter/Angela Bassett in re-enactments), who brought her daughter Flora there, where the young girl promptly made friends with a psychotic ghost who threatened to kill everyone, and then went missing.
