[image-1]Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s American Horror Story anthology covers all the basic nightmares — haunted houses, witches, cults, clowns, naughty nuns, vampires, wicked doctors — and elevates them in twisted, colorful ways, leaving us wanting more, and wondering why. I mean, they don’t keep cranking out the seasons for nothin’.

Savannah’s Sweet Tease Revue, an award-winning burlesque traveling troupe, knows that sex sells, especially sex laced with references to popular horror show characters.

Sat. Oct. 21 at The Sparrow, the Revue brings the scary narratives to life with a strip show featuring AHS fan favorites like Jessica Lange’s Sister Jude, the sexy red-headed “Murder House” maid, Twisty the disgraced clown, and Lady Gaga’s vampiric Elizabeth.

Sweet Tease performers Jack N ThaCox, Rebel Belle, Rita D’LaVane, Roxanna Darling, Magnolia Minxxx, and Luna Noir star, with Skippy Spiral serving as Master of Ceremonies and Charleston’s own Evelyn DeVere guest starring.

Doors open at 9 p.m. and the show begins at 10 p.m. Tickets are $10, and the event is 21 and up.
