     After Freak Show, what would be your favorite theme of American Horror Story?   I would like Western (mining for gold, saloons, ghost towns etc.) mixed with Indian Folklore (Trail of Tears etc.), Cults, Conspiracies (set in DC), and Apocalypse.  

     

     I’m very curious to see what all Ryan could achieve with the Western/Indian Folklore/Trail of Tears based theme first to give a more recent insight as to what happened historically and potentially serve as a visual masterpiece that was achieved in Asylum.  The story writes itself, it would be a packed season, and he wouldn’t have to throw in tons of random extra ideas like he tends to do (keep it simple).  Kathy Bates certainly did her best work in the slavery flashbacks that really put things into perspective (rely more on your veteran actors to steal the show, and leave smaller parts for the youth … the first season of AHS wasn’t dubbed ”The Jessica Lange Show” for no reason).

     

    Also, who would you like to cast per your favorite theme?

    American Horror Story: Monsters

    A young couple (Sarah Paulson and Benedict Cumberbatch) move from London to an idyllic small town somewhere in Europe. They are identified as “The Saviors” by the local gypsies, and they soon discover that some of the residents of that town are monsters – in both senses of the word, but are they truly evil?

    A tribute to Hammer Horror Films and James Whale, with a more camp feel to it

    Cast:
    Sarah Paulson as Margaret Stanford
    Benedict Cumberbatch as Robert Stanford
    Jeremy Irons as Master Bartholomew, a aristocrat who turns out to be a vampire
    Michael Chiklis as Lazlo, a brutish drunk who is a Frankenstein-type creation
    Danny Huston as M. Roland, a charming merchant who is a werewolf
    Bobby Cannavale
    as Dominic, a Spanish soldier who is actually a pharoah of Egypt brought out of mummification
    Kathy Bates as Korva, the cynical neighbour of the characters who does not believe in the monster, but is revealed to be the biggest monster of all time – the devil.
    Frances Conroy as Madame Zerki, a gypsy

    I would like one theme to tackle dreams:  what do they mean, do they serve a purpose, why can we remember some & not others, can you control yours, are they foreshadowing future relationships/events & I could go on for days!  I was talking to my good GoldDerby friend Morgan & he referred to the theme Religion (heaven, hell, angels etc.).  He talked about a season dedicated a corrupt church & all things that would encompass.  He even referred to having Jessica Lange (or whomever else of that caliber …Bates/Conroy/Dunaway) play a Tammy Faye Baker role with the hair/makeup etc.  Ryan dabbled w/religion a bit in Asylum, but there is an entire spectrum to be discussed, from the time the first settlers set foot, until present day.  Thoughts?

    How about Tim Curry for S4 though for a sec.  As is Rocky Horror Picture Show wasn’t enough, he also played the crazed/evil Pennywise in ”It.”
