Television's most reliable source for murder and mayhem, American Horror Story has delivered consistently terrifying nightmare fuel more than six seasons now. With so much content for TV viewers to choose from, it's not easy to stand out, but Ryan Murphy, FX, and a cast of repeat and new actors have all managed to create squirm-inducing, spit-take demanding, holy-crap-on-a-cupcake moments of crazy cinematic television bliss year after year.

The FX horror series has become a force on television and is certainly one of the creepiest TV shows of all time. With Jessica Lange, Connie Britton, Evan Peters, and Sarah Paulson bringing the show's creepy characters to life, few TV shows have the ability to get quite as crazy and out there as AHS.

Set in a multitude of creepy settings, each season has been unique, but equally twisted. Between Murder House, Asylum, Coven, Freak Show, Hotel, Roanoke, and now Cult, picking favorite moments from the show is no easy feat. Here are a few of the show's scenes that had viewers gasping, cringing, recoiling, and screaming. Relive them, if you dare.

Shelley's only crime was liking sex in a time where sex was supposed to be liked a certain way by certain people in certain amounts. Huh, maybe not all that much has changed. In any case, her story culminated in forced amputation at the hands of Dr. Arden and some nutso Nazi experiments that left her looking like a human popcorn ball.

While definitely not the scariest season, American Horror Story: Coven delivered some of the most entertaining and bizarre happenings throughout the entire anthology. Take for example the time the neighbor's puritanical mom gave her own son a bleach enema (okay, well technically more like a "Comet enema," but who's counting?).

Nevermind that famed songstress Patti LuPone delivered the painful procedure - which is a crazy all its own, but the extreme gesture was a response to her son consorting with Claire, basically the nicest witch in all of Louisiana.

Every horror story needs a good villain, and Asylum had about 5,000. One of the more shocking moments was the realization that Dr. Thredson was the real "Bloody Face," a mom-hating, breast-milk loving psychopath who sought to frame Kit for his slew of murders. It's always who you least suspect!

Behind every great ghoulish serial killer is a tale as rich and textured as the teeth in his rotten, shotgun wound of a mouth. Which is to say, when American Horror Story: Freak Show's Twisty the death clown finally removed his smiling mask to relate his story to Edward Mordrake viewers learned a little more than they might like about this looming monster. Namely that a vicious case of halitosis was the least of his worries.
