After weeks of teasers and the recent opening credits reveal, we finally get to see the first full trailer American Horror Story: Cult.
While the opening credits virtually revealed nothing about what to expect, the same cannot be said about the trailer. In the opening moments, Sarah Paulson’s all too familiar blood-curdling shriek perfectly expressed that moment when the world realised Donald Trump had been elected President.
There’s a lot packed into the one minute trailer. Sarah Paulson’s character, Ally Mayfair-Richards describing to her psychiatrist (Cheyenne Jackson as Dr Rudy Vincent) about how her coulrophobia (fear of clowns) has only gotten worse since the election. Speaking of clowns, we also have the return of Twisty. For now in action figure and book form. Alison Pill plays Ally’s rather frightened spouse. Billie Lourd makes her AHS debut as their child’s nanny and not everything will be as it seems with her.
Then we’ve got Evan Peters’ blue haired Kai Anderson who might very well be the leader of the titular cult. Peters might currently seem like the main villain, but we’ve grown accustomed to the writers of American Horror Story turning things on its head. While the trailer is pretty damn captivating and scary, I believe this is only a glimpse of what to expect from the new season.
What are your thoughts of the trailer?
