    ,

    When THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN hit VOD and Streaming last October, there were many who lauded the influence of Ryan Murphy on the Blumhouse picture, citing Murphy’s penchant for the nightmarish, visceral and surreal on AMERICAN HORROR STORY that appeared throughout the remake/sequel. However, when it comes to those aesthetics, credit is due- if not moreso- to director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, whose unique directorial style on AMERICAN HORROR STORY bled (literally) into THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN (2014).
