American Horror Story has long been one of the most in-your-face shows on TV, layering fantastical plots with cartoonish violence and knowingly over-the-top acting. Last season’s Roanoke took aim at reality TV, with mixed but generally amusing results. This season’s Cult takes aim at reality itself, and so far it’s…
American Horror Story’s latest venture is Cult, looking at what happens when an enigmatic personality goes a step too far and things turn deadly. It’s an interesting premise, especially considering it’s using the 2016 US presidential election as its starting point, but it’s not exactly unique.
Well, this is a weird turn. We had heard a couple months back that Lena Dunham would have a role in the upcoming clowns-and-Trump smorgasbord of American Horror Story’s seventh season. Now we know who she’s playing: Valerie Solanas, a feminist writer and actress who shot Andy Warhol in 1968.
Finally—after weeks of surreal teasers and yesterday’s opening-credits reveal, which actually revealed nothing—we have a real trailer for American Horror Story: Cult. Sarah Paulson’s bloodcurdling shriek upon realizing that Donald Trump has been elected president is truly terrifying. And relatable.
The true focus of the next American Horror Story season will remain a mystery until it airs, but that doesn’t prevent us from speculating like mad. (Who would have guessed Roanoke would be about reality TV?) Today’s clue dump comes from the opening credits for Cult—which are artistically creepy in classic AHS style.
The official website for American Horror Story: Cult has a creepy clown cultist puzzle you can solve that reveals actors in costume and the names of their new characters. There’s a doctor of some kind and a detective—and wait, remember when Ryan Murphy said this season was going to feature the election?
Last night, we learned that Cult is the subtitle of American Horror Story’s seventh season, which is themed around the 2016 presidential election and will apparently involve the return of Freak Show’s dreaded Twisty the Clown. Now we’ve got our first teaser. And indeed, it is bursting with evil clowns.
