So we got the title for season seven, American Horror Story: Cult… and now FX is rolling out all the weird and creepy teaser trailers and images.
This is part of what makes the Ryan Murphy-created series so successful: it builds excitement using social media in unique ways — like a clown in a dark bathtub, a woman being attacked by random arms, and someone with bees in their brain. You have to wonder what Halloween is like at the Murphy household.
Now, the clown will likely be a big part of the season, as Twisty the clown from the Freak Show is said to be returning for Cult. But there is nothing inside the clown, which might be a metaphor for being part of a cult… as the bees in the brain might be referencing a hive mind. But like most seasons, we know very little, other than the fact that Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson will be playing a couple named Kai and Ally, and it's set in Michigan shortly after the 2016 election.
The seventh season of American Horror Story, subtitled Cult, premieres September 5th.
