Glee creator turns to horror

Jessica Lange stars in the new US TV series American Horror Story

As a child, Glee creator Ryan Murphy's grandmother forced him to watch the daytime horror soap Dark Shadows to toughen him up.

Murphy, whose credits include Nip/Tuck, is now the co-creator of an upcoming FX series, American Horror Story, starring Jessica Lange, Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton.

American Horror Story isn't so much about horror as about marriage and infidelity, Murphy said.

However series co-creator Brad Falchuk said both he and Murphy are obsessed with the horror genre with Don't Look Now, The Shining and Jaws all high on their list.

American Horror Story will premier in the US on October 5.
