With just over a month until the premiere of American Horror Story: Freak Show, FX have released not one but THREE new teaser trailers and it’s time to send in the clowns. We already know that the true villain of this season’s drama is the cheerily named Twisty the Clown Killer, and even without seeing any images I know at least one person who is already dreading meeting John Carroll Lynch’s character.
The first teaser we have today is called “Twisted Smile” which has a creepy sounding song asking us to come to the Carnival, and we see a shadowy clown dancing in a tent. It ends with a smile which is a thing nightmares are made of (Sarah, you have been warned). Interestingly, the shadow of the clown is not dissimilar to the one which is on the poster which was released last week. We will have to wait and see just how close this clown is to good old Twisty.
If “Twisted Smile” hasn’t given you the heebie jeebies, then perhaps “Open Wide” might do the trick. We have yet another clown and he really is a creepy guy. As with all the other teasers, there is no dialogue however, no words are needed to create the horror of what is to come. This is not the type of clown you would want at a children’s party.
Finally today we get to meet another one of the freaks of Jessica Lange’s freak show. We have already seen the three legged contortionist, the three legged trapeze artist and a forked tongue sweetie eater, and now we meet the tattooed sword swallower.
I just can’t wait for Jessica Lange to bring her freak show to Jupiter, Florida when American Horror Story: Freak Show premieres at 10/9c on FX. I have already chosen the cushion I am going to hide behind. Remember #WirSindAllesFreaks
