American Horror Story Facts you didn’t know!!!

Alma and Kit Walker are based on a real Couple

Betty and Barney Hill, an interracial couple living in New Hampshire in the early ’60s, were, it turns out, the first people ever to widely disseminate an “alien abduction” story, and many common alien abduction tropes in modern science fiction derive from their account.

The incident is referred to as the Hill Abduction and has been adapted in to all sorts of different mediums, including books, and the TV movie The UFO Incident. Luckily for the real life pair they were returned safely and unharmed with very little repercussions, unlike poor Kit who ended up in Briarcliff as the supposed murderer Bloody Face because of Alma’s abduction.
