American Horror Story: Freak Show’ begins its tale in the quiet, sleepy hamlet of Jupiter, Florida. The year is 1952. A troupe of curiosities has just arrived to town, coinciding with the strange emergence of a dark entity that savagely threatens the lives of townsfolk and freaks alike. This is the story of the performers and their desperate journey of survival amidst the dying world of the American carny experience. – Source
I love this show. Sure it can be campy as all hell at times but it delivers full on, no-holds barred horror on TV like no other show while featuring some truly stellar acting by some of the best actors in Hollywood. Freak Show promises to be the most disturbing season yet (and it is off to a pretty darn good start especially with the inventive use of freaky clowns in teasers and promotional materials that have been released) and I cannot wait for it to air. Kathy Bates is a bearded lady and Angela Bassett has three boobs! What more could you ask for in a TV show?
This first full trailer featuring shots of the primary cast as their characters is just enough to whet the appetite till October and the use of Melanie Martines’ “Carousel” is just perfectly creepy and works to bolster an already stylishly macabre clip.
