Flesh Phantom is are humans who have undergone transformations under the influence of a special pill which enhances talent in skilled individuals at the cost of bloodlust, but were untalented and instead mutated into vampire-like creatures. It is a character in Double Feature portrayed by Spencer Novich.
They are the second variation of vampires in the American Horror Story universe, the first being the Afflicted introduced in the fifth season, Hotel. Unlike the Afflicted, who have the appearance of beautiful human beings that never age, Flesh Phantoms have a more classically vampiric appearance, sporting deathly pale skin, mouths full of sharp fangs, bald hairless heads, and pointy ears like a bat, but are not immortal and can be killed by conventional means. Additionally, while the Afflicted are created by a virus that is supernatural in nature, Flesh Phantoms are the result of a science experiment gone wrong.
The appearance of Flesh Phantoms appears to be based on Count Orlok, the antagonistic vampire from the 1922 silent film Nosferatu. The film and its director, F.W. Murnau, both exist in-universe, with Murnau himself having been revealed to be one of the aforementioned Afflicted in Hotel.
