6 Ways American Horror Story's Sixth Season Is Just Like Murder House
Season six of American Horror Story is finally here and it looks like it will be another creepy season full of mystery. We have Shelby and Matt who move into a new house in South Carolina. After they move in, a bunch of creepy stuff starts happening. Does all of that sound familiar? That's probably because the plot seems eerily similar to the first season with the Murder House. Here are the six ways this season has already given us déjà vu!
The season begins with a couple buying a home.
Of course, all haunted house stories start off with this, so it's a given. However, Shelby and Matt have much more of a fixer-upper than the Murder House!
Both women of the house have suffered a miscarriage.
Shelby and Vivien both suffer miscarriages, only to move into a new house with their husbands to start over. Shelby's miscarriage is a little different because it happens after an attack.
We're back to ghosts.
In season one, there are so many ghosts that torture our main family. This season it looks like there will be just as many ghosts at it again!
There's another mysterious pig-like creature.
Back in season one, the Piggy Man terrorized one of Ben's patients. This season looks like it has its own version of that, with the man in the woods wearing the pig's head. We caught him quickly on the home video, but we have a feeling we'll see this thing again in the future.
There are creepy ghost twins.
Murder House starts off with the twins vandalizing the house and being murdered; we then see them again as ghosts. This season, we saw creepy twins (or maybe just sisters?) walking down the hallway. This was probably in reference to The Shining, but it gave us a flashback to the first season.
Multiple characters are fighting for a house.
This comparison is probably less strong than the others since we only have one episode, but the first season was all about the dead and the living fighting over one house. This season the premiere starts off with Shelby and Matt bidding for the house against local people. They end up winning and the men walk away looking very angry about it.
Throughout the episode, Matt assumes it's those men who are trying to scare them out of their house. We know ghosts are involved, but that doesn't men those men can't somehow come into the mix later too.
