Jessica Lange is fantastically weird and cruel. The whole cast is perfect and the show is downright freaky. Especially the fellow in the black rubber suit. Not many things scare me, and none of them on tv, however, there's something about a weirdo in an all rubber suit that exudes creepy. No doubt I'm going to have nightmares about this character lurking around my house.
This is my Halloween recommendation. If you haven't seen it, go rent the first season like I did last night. You'll thank me.
