Cable television dominated great storytelling for nearly a decade and with FX’s hit series American Horror Story and it’s fourth season Freak Show, it doesn’t appear anything would be slowing down.

The show is haunting yet mesmerizing. You want to look away yet are sucked back into to the television set or tablet and power-watch an entire season. Nothing is creepier than a circus, especially its side show attractions. The grisly appeal is the real draw, reaching into the darkest parts of the human psyche and turning it around into something almost erotic instead of perverse.

“One of the biggest things is the keyword — fear. Finding what scares you the most and having the right people find those fears and once you do…not run away from it but embrace those fears and looking into yourself in finding away to conquer it,” said Jamie Brewer, who portrayed Marjorie in Freak Show, when asked what the draw of the horror genre is during the American Horror Story blu-ray release party at the Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles.

The event at the Hero Complex Gallery hosted fellow American Horror Story cast members Liana Mendoza (Officer Albano – Hotel) and Naomi Grossman (Pepper – Asylum / Freak Show), along with art by JQ Hammer and Sarah the fortune teller who allowed for one question in order to make time for all guests to experience the powers of the beyond.

“It’s transcendent, this sort of show can travel anywhere in the world that maybe a comedy, which is so reliant on language or puns and inside jokes that are so tied to a place wouldn’t. It says something about us as a culture, we are attracted to the macabre,” said Naomi Grossman the success of the series.

The series continues on with American Horror Story: Hotel and just as the darkness of Freak Show, Hotel will soon draw in the crowd that has enjoyed the continuously changing cast and location for a series that is extremely successful.

American Horror Story: Freak Show is now on Blu-Ray and DVD.

American Horror Story: Hotel airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX and FXNow

American Horror Story inspired fan art exhibition will run from Friday, Oct. 2 through Oct. 18, 2015 at the Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles.
