A Truly Horrifyingly Elegant Murder House
Where did all the horror start? The answer to this, is the "Murder House". The Murder House is a central location and focus of the first season of American Horror Story. The house was built by Alfred Rosenheim in 1902. Alfred was a respected architect at this time, and the surrounding neighborhood was known as "billionaire row." The house is an elegant Victorian, with extensive brick work, and Tiffany stained glass.
The house has been featured in hundreds of TV shows and movies, such as, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, 2002's Spiderman, and The Twilight Zone. Many photographers have also shot at the Rosenheim mansion, and its also been the location of many music videos, and private events.
Before American Horror Story producer, Ryan Murphy, found the mansion, it was used as a convent. When Murphy found the house he said the house was the perfect mix of creepiness, and elegance. After finding the house, Murphy made an exact replica of the house to film in, but the first episode was still filmed in the actual house. While filming the first episode, many noises were repeatedly heard. Also, the house had an adjoining chapel, which was removed using CGI.
