Want to see the beginning of American Horror Story before its premiere on October 5th?  The first 5 minutes have been released online and we've embedded the video for you to watch.

The beginning of the show doesn't start with the Harmon family moving into their new home, and takes us back to 1978, where two boys come face to face with the supernatural elements of the house.

“American Horror Story revolves around the Harmons, a family of three who moved from Boston to Los Angeles as a means to reconcile past anguish. The all-star cast features Dylan McDermott as ‘Ben Harmon,’ a psychiatrist; Connie Britton as ‘Vivien Harmon,’ Ben’s wife; Taissa Farmiga as ‘Violet,’ the Harmon’s teenage daughter; Jessica Lange in her first-ever regular series TV role as ‘Constance,’ the Harmon’s neighbor; Evan Peters plays ‘Tate Langdon,’ one of Ben’s patients; and Denis O’Hare as ‘Larry Harvey.’ Guest stars for the series include Frances Conroy as the Harmon’s housekeeper; Alexandra Breckenridge as the Harmon’s housekeeper; and Jamie Brewer as Constance’s daughter.”
