Meet the Ghosts of AMERICAN HORROR STORY Season 1

Debuting on Blu-ray and DVD Sept. 25

When the first season of American Horror Story debuted on FX, viewers were in for a surprise by the spine-tingling, chilling series featuring a haunted house like no other. To celebrate its release, we’re giving away a couple copies of Season 1 on Blu-Ray in prize packs here.  

Brace yourself for an addictive thrill ride! American Horror Story is TV’s most original new drama, a deeply stylish psychosexual haunt devised to keep you on the edge of your seat. The Harmon’s (Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton) fresh start in a new home deviously twists to reveal discoveries of love, sex and murderous revenge. Featuring a Golden Globe -winning performance by Jessica Lange, Season One scares up a host of engrossing extras.

 

Here, we’ll highlight everyone’s favorite ghosts of the series including those played by Zachary Quinto and Frances Conroy. Obviously, spoilers below.

 Larry Harvey – Denis O’Hare

 

 

Larry appears to Ben Harmon (Dylan McDermott) early in the season, and with a burned and distorted appearance, Ben is immediately taken aback. It’s not until later that the audience learns exactly how Larry has come to be with no family and with his scars. O’Hare also starred in HBO’s True Blood as the evil Russell Edgington and played Judge Charles Abernathy on The Good Wife.

Larry: I’m trying very hard not to judge you.

Ben: Me? You murdered your entire family!

Larry: Yes, but I was never unfaithful.

Moira O’Hara – Frances Conroy

 

Moira is an enigmatic ghost of the Harmon household. Played by Conroy, Moira is an older housemaid ready to help the family in any way she can. However, to Ben’s wandering eye, she appears to be the sexy and sultry Moira (played by the red-headed Alexandra Breckenridge). A constant throughout the season, Vivien Harmon (Connie Britton) often confides in the maid and takes her bizarre advice, including eating animal brains.

 

Moira: I’ll get the shovel. You get the bleach.

 

Hayden McClaine – Kate Mara

 

 

Hayden starts the show in motion when she has an affair with married Ben and forces him to move his family far away for a fresh start. When she turns up on his lawn, pregnant and refusing to go away, Larry hits her with a shovel and buries her out back, but that is not the last of the unstable Hayden. Mara has been featured in other hot TV shows like Nip/Tuck and 24 and is the sister to Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).

 

Hayden: I am *not* a whore, Ben! I matter! I *MATTER*!

Chad Warwick – Zachary Quinto

Chad and his boyfriend spent some time in the house before their demise before a Halloween party and after they had a huge fight. The infamous rubber suit was brought into the house after the two were working to spice up their relationship and was left there after their murder. But the two don’t stray far from the home and are ready to get it back as soon as possible. Quinto is known for small screen roles in shows like Heroes and also big screen blockbuster flicks like J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek.

 

Chad: With you, at this point? I’m bulletproof.
