Now that its October, let the horror begin!
A new trailer just rolled out for American Horror Story: Freak Show and it looks….well pretty freaky.
The trailer opens with guy who looks like he is a rich little snot, explaining how bored he is while remarking “where are the freaks”. He then sees two “freaks” walk by him and he whispers in arousal – “Freaks”! I have a creeping suspicion that this guy won’t last very long.
We also get to see the lovely two headed Sarah Paulson being abused by her mother and escaping her abusive mother to join the carnival. We’re likewise introduced to Kathy bates’ character, Ethel Darling, who is sporting a beard even an amish man could be proud of. There seems to be a battle between some local townsfolk and the carnies which i’m guessing will be a running plot point for the season. I’m sensing a theme of discrimination this season.
Near the end of the trailer we meet Twisty the clown, who is going to be the seasons main antagonist. He is seen knifing someone in bed and damn does he look terrifying as he stabs someone in their bedroom. If that image is not nightmare inducing, I don’t know what is.
This is likely going to be a season not to miss! Here is the debut trailer:
