Ryan Murphy has brought us season after season of this bizarre anthology series. From a murder house to a haunted hotel, Murphy delves deep into the weird and horrific.

2. Midnight, Texas

Midnight, Texas
Manfred, a ghost magnet, has arrived in the small town of Midnight, Texas which turns out to be a haven for the weird.
