American Horror Story, Ten Commandment Killer's "Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery" Trophy

original movie prop



Centered on the mysterious Hotel Cortez in Los Angeles, California, that catches the eye of an intrepid homicide detective (Bentley). The Cortez is host to many disturbing scenarios and paranormal events, and is overseen by its enigmatic matron, The Countess (Gaga), who is a bloodsucking fashionista. The hotel is loosely based on an actual hotel built in 1893 by H. H. Holmes in Chicago, Il. for the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. It became known as the 'Murder Castle' as it was built for Holmes to torture, murder, and dispose of evidence just as is the Cortez. From the 2015 season American Horror Story: Hotel, this is Ten Commandment Killer's "Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery" trophy with it’s glass globe. In the pilot episode, Detective John Lowe is called to the scene of a murder inside the Hotel Cortez. When he arrives, he recognizes what he suspects is the work of a man he has come to think of as the “Ten Commandments Killer”. A dead woman is propped up on her knees in the bed, her body impaled by a spear, her hands nailed to the headboard to keep her upright. Below her, her still living lover is writhing in agony, his eyes and tongue removed. It's only later that John realizes it was he, himself, who murdered the woman and took the man's tongue and eyes as a trophy to be added to the hidden chamber in Room 64 of the Cortez.
