Just hours after revealing the official title, American Horror Story: Cult, FX has released the first official promo. If you suffer from coulrophobia, the fear of clowns, I highly advise not proceeding any further. The clip feels like a recruitment video from a creepy organization whose members wear red noses and rock white face paint.
“Do you ever feel alone?” the clip narrator hauntingly says. “Does it seem like no one really understands you? Do some people just make you sick? Are you afraid? We can set you free. We will make you strong. We want you.”
AHS: Season 7 kicks off its 11 episode run on September 5 on FX. This year’s cast includes repertory players Sarah Paulson, Adina Porter, Cheyenne Jackson, Frances Conroy, Mare Winningham and Evan Peters. They’ll be joined by franchise newcomers Billie Lourd, Leslie Grossman, Billy Eichner, Colton Haynes, Alison Pill and Lena Dunham.
As with every season of the horror anthology, the promo is on point and fantastically creepy. Honestly, sometimes the promos are better than the actual season itself, right? Check out the preview titled “Afraid” below.
