Are you excited for American Horror Story: Freak Show? And, by excited, are you sleeping under your covers with a flashlight terrified of what might be lurking in the dark? If you've been watching American Horror Story since the beginning, then it's possible that you have nerves of steel that can't be scared off by anything. Especially not after the campy season that was American Horror Story: Coven. However, the first full-length trailer for American Horror Story: Freak Show might just change your mind — and make you long for those short, creepy teasers FX has been releasing before.
Listen, carnivals and circuses are supposed to be places of childlike wonder and magic, but we all know that seeing some of the performers anywhere but at a carnival or a circus would make you scream in terror. (I'm looking at you, clowns.) The dark and dirty atmosphere of this trailer, combined with the music of “Carousel” by Melanie Martinez and the whole cast in full, creepy costume will definitely take what joy and wonder was left in carnivals right out of the entire concept of them for you. Seriously, I can still see the look Sarah Paulson as the woman with two heads was giving me every time I close my eyes. Shudder.
Check out the trailer below.
