In  a scene from American Horror Stories season one, it features an ultrasound machine. However this is the beginning of where culture uses the technology in horror. When the nurse observes the ultrasound, she view what they claim to be “the antichrist” inside of her stomach. This show, is put in place to promote fear and make one question what is happening. Although the fear truly comes from what is inside of her, it also brings up fear with what is being used to show this. Having watched and reading about this scene, it makes me curious if this caused people to later fear the ultrasound technology itself.
