As if we weren’t living one real-life American Horror Story after another, the FX Cult is taking a cue from reality. Following concerns of an upcoming mass shooting sequence airing too close to the Las Vegas massacre, Ryan Murphy confirms changes to the scene.
The fear factor of the past six seasons of American Horror Story has been predicated on a variety otherworldly scares. Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have spooked us with ghost stories, aliens, witches, vampires, clowns, and beyond. Part of the uniqueness of the anthology series, and why watching a show as sadistic and gruesome as AHS can be so fun and addictive, is the gap between us and what happens on screen. Who doesn’t love hearing a good ghost story, so long it’s not happening to them? But in its seventh year, American Horror Story pivots from fables of supernatural nightmares to satirize the real-world political fears of Trump’s America, and it’s the series’ biggest mistake yet.
There was no way American Horror Story would bring in clowns without the biggest of all, but this Freak Show return gets pretty Twisty. See the scariest clown out there make his Cult return for Season 7 with a brand-new motion comic teasing next week’s premiere.
