The horror genre provides a wide variety of scares: the sudden shock, the slow dread, the flicker of instinctive disgust. The best part of American Horror Story is that it hits viewers with every kind of scare, often in the same episode (and sometimes even simultaneously). Gore, suspense and body horror – you name it and Horror Story has scared us with it. So sit back and cozy up to our highly subjective list of the series' scariest scenes. And no, the aliens aren't on here. They were great, but those extraterrestrials ain't scary. Halle Keifer
