Here's what's been revealed so far about season 4 of American Horror Story: it's set in Florida, circa 1952, and centers on a "troupe of curiosities" that arrives at the same time that a dark entity emerges, threatening both townsfolk and circus freaks. The real-life world's smallest woman has been cast, along with returning cast members Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, and Sarah Paulson. The official description reads: "This is the story of the performers and their desperate journey of survival amid the dying world of the American carny experience."
We're getting closer to the American Horror Story: Freak Show premiere on October 8, so naturally FX has been rolling out their signature skin-crawling teasers for the show. I can't decide which is my favorite: the guy with the sliced tongue, the three-legged lady, the person trapped in a tiny birdcage, or the SPOOKY CLAWED HAND.
(UGH GOD WHY DID I WATCH THAT AGAIN.)
Well now that one's not so -- ohhh, right. Extra leg.
Here also is the cast art poster for this season, which is pretty interesting:
Let's see, I spot an extra head, an extra boob, a beard on Kathy Bates, and what's up with that shadow being cast behind the strongman? I'm thinking that's our first vague peek at this season's villain, Twisty, the serial-killer clown played by John Carroll Lynch from Fargo. I haven't even seen this character and I'm thinking of a Pennywise/John Wayne Gacy mashup, which ... yikes. Total nightmare fuel.
Are you looking forward to this season of American Horror Story?
