It's time for the return of Ryan Murphy’s provocative, gory and ground-breaking anthology series. Reality TV superstar Kim Kardashian joins Scream Queen Emma Roberts in this tale of maternal paranoia based on Danielle Valentine’s unnerving new novel. Out of the country? You can watch American Horror Story season 12 online from anywhere with a VPN.
Created by Murphy and Brad Falchuk and airing on FX since 2011, this delightfully disturbed series has managed to keep things as fresh as a foggy grave over its twelve seasons.
We’ve been terrorized by ghosts in Murder House, consorted with descendants of the Salem witch trials, visited a 1950s Freak Show, checked into a torture hotel, and been chased through a summer camp straight from a 1980s slasher film.
Now, after various industry delays, American Horror Story: Delicate is finally here! It’s based on Danielle Valentine’s new novel Delicate Condition, which has been described as ““Shockingly real, “twisty”, and a “feminist update to Rosemary's Baby”.
Delicate sees Emma Roberts play A-list actress Anna. Her dream of starting a family is close to coming true thanks to IVF treatment. Yet shortly after getting pregnant, her life becomes a paranoid nightmare as she finds herself stalked by occult figures and plagued by foreboding visions.
Among those directing this season’s fraught tale of motherhood are Jessica Yu (Fosse/Verdon, Ratched) and Jennifer Lynch (David Lynch's daughter!), with Kim Kardashian starring as best friend Siobhan alongside Cara Delevingne and AHS alumni Denis O’Hare and Billie Lourd.

American Horror Story season 12 trailer
Emma Roberts plays Anna Alcott, a rising star desperate to have a child. We see her getting IVF treatment from sinister doctors before Anna and her husband later reveal her successful pregnancy. Yet she can’t shake the feeling that something evil is growing inside her. “Stop being hysterical” her partner chides as she experiences visions of occult figures and grows physically frail. We hear that “pain is a touchstone of growth” before Anna is strapped to a gurney and an old woman in red leans over Anna's face with blood pouring from her mouth.
