Guys…I can barely contain myself right now! Today FX decided to finally let us all take a peek underneath the actual big top when they released the first preview and main title sequence for American Horror Story: Freak Show.
This season definitely looks darker than last and the creep factor seems as if it could reach Coven levels. The usual mechanically creepy opening song has been slightly remixed to fit this season’s theme and undoubtedly includes clues about the plot of the upcoming season, which are always fun to try and decipher. We see visuals of malformed skeletons and fanged monkeys among other curiosities and the preview gives us a further feel for the tone of the season…and it’s dark and beautiful!
Here are our 6 favorite things about the preview from the upcoming season, with a look at the main titles as well:
1. We get an up-close and personal look at Sarah Paulson’s Bette and Dot in action and even get a glimpse of the difference in personalities between the conjoined twins.
2. The sets this season are extremely visually appealing. We totally get where Jessica was coming from when she said the sets were “like a poem”.
3. Pepper’s got a friend!!!
4. You already get a sense of family and community amongst the “freaks” which we know they’ll need in a world where freak shows are quickly failing and fading.
5. Jessica Lange’s wardrobe looks like it’s stepped up a notch from last season’s witch diva Fiona (who was freaking fierce and WE ARE NOT MAD! Someone just give this lady another Emmy for this season and get it over with please…we all know it’s coming.
6. SCARY ASS MURDER CLOWN OF MY NIGHTMARES!!!
