I'm going to keep this short, but I have to say this. I like American Horror Story because it's ridiculous, like an EC Comic perhaps. But those sounds they play during the opening credits are definitely robotic fart noises. Actually the first fart doesn't even sound mechanically filtered but more biological in nature. The sounds are not scary. They are farty. They resemble farts. Farts are not scary. I just wonder why they chose to do that. Who sat around at the recording console and heard it, and said "That's it! Man that is scary, especially the farts we smeared all over this somewhat eerie composition." On the other hand it makes me laugh every time I hear it. Thank you.
