Terrified by American Horror Story: Freak Show’s Twisty the Clown? No worries, say Ryan Murphy, Jessica Lange will soothe our souls with the cool sounds of Lana Del Rey. In response to a fan’s understandable concerns that this round of AHS will be too much for her to handle, the showrunner tried to Tweet away her worries:
Uh, I’m not sure that’s quite enough to reassure us — have you seen the teeth on that thing?
Believe it or not, this new trailer will actually (mostly) take your mind off Twisty. It’s full of all-new footage, gives us a good look at Sarah Paulson’s Bette and Dot in action, and a peek at most of the Season 3 characters. Just, maybe…cover your eyes toward the end.
Up until this point, I’d been a little worried about how this season will go. After the hot mess that Coven turned into, we’d all like to see Murphy get back to Murder House and Asylum levels of grandness — this trailer has me believing he’s on the right track. The camera shots are predictably gorgeous, Paulson’s effects aren’t too cheesy, and the mood feels just right.
What do you say my fellow
freaks watchers, are you heartened?
American Horror Story: Freak Show returns to FX with a “super-sized” 90 minute premiere, October 8th.
