Now that we all know the title of this 12 months’s American Horror Story season, FX has moved on to the scaring the crap out of us part. For the previous few weeks, they’ve launched some completely terrifying teasers hinting on the nature of AHS: Cult. Whatever its true nature seems to be, one factor is for certain: It accommodates lots of clowns. The scary clown phenomenon seems to be again in full drive. Just a pair days after the film adaptation of Stephen King’s It hits theaters, Ryan Murphy will give us his take. Which apparently entails some form of cult. We’re not going to get any sleep this fall, are we?
So there seems to be some type of clown cult. Based on the hints Ryan Murphy has beforehand given us, the cult might revolve round Twisty, the murderous circus clown from season 4, or “Freak Show.” Maybe his actions have impressed a rising group of fanatical worshipers? Then, there’s this little bit of unsettling imagery.
The hole face is scary sufficient, however then in a later video, Murphy/FX has seen match to pile on one other phobia.
Oh good. Bees. My favourite. This isn’t only a one-off factor, both. It’s trying like bees will play an enormous function within the upcoming season, no less than if this subsequent video is something to go by.
So yeah, bees, beehives and creepy arms reaching out to tug you into them. In on a regular basis I’ve been watching American Horror Story, this is likely to be essentially the most creeped out the sequence has ever made me really feel. I’m positive the ultimate product will nonetheless have its campy, foolish moments, however these teasers positive are efficient. Especially this subsequent one, which has the creepiest clown but.
Seriously, why even hassle bringing again Twisty at this level? Sledgy up there may be nightmare-inducing sufficient. Especially paired with the latest teaser. Released simply this week, the newest clip places us on a bus with clowns. You would possibly have the ability to predict that one will get uncomfortably shut. Knowing this doesn’t make it any much less unsettling when it occurs.
In addition to the cults, clowns, bees, and buses, we already know that the upcoming season may have one thing to do with the latest election. The 11-episode story will start on election evening and touch upon the worry that many Americans are feeling underneath the present administration.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Murphy stated the sequence will concentrate on “people who are ignored by the current administration and who are afraid and feel terrorized that their lives are going to be taken away.” Exactly how the clown cult and bees match into that, we’ll simply have to attend and discover out. This teaser from August 1 might give us an concept although.
The clowns are clearly searching down anyone. I’m wondering the place she falls on the “people who are ignored by the current administration” spectrum. Also, is anybody else getting The Purge vibes from that video? American Horror Story has at all times worn its horror film inspirations on its sleeve prior to now. If Ryan Murphy is attempting to make his model of political horror, there are actually worse sequence he may crib from.
American Horror Story: Cult premieres on September 5 on FX.
