“American Horror Story” is no “Glee,” but the show has had its share of memorable musical moments over the years, and nothing screams ‘Ryan Murphy Productions’ quite like an iconic pop needle drop. Pop star Kim Petras’ “There Will Be Blood” plays as the episode’s seemingly happy ending takes a dark turn. While the song’s title shares a name with Paul Thomas Anderson’s acclaimed period drama, it has more in common with the horror genre.
A masterclass in combining camp, pop, and horror, Petras’ second album “TURN OFF THE LIGHT” is filled with tracks that would fit into the “American Horror Story” universe. “In The Next Life,” “Everybody Dies,” and “Boo! B*tch!” all could’ve worked here. The bloodcurdling project even features a collaboration with the one and only Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.
“There Will Be Blood” was featured in promotional videos for “American Horror Stories,” prompting fans to share their excitement online.
