Step right up! Step right up and feast your mortal eyes upon the greatest wonder they have ever seen! Everyone’s a winner for the low, low price of a high speed internet connection! That’s right, just one click and your life will be changed forever! Straight from the mysterious and magical minds of Ryan Murphy and and Brad Falchuk and freshly fabricated at the fabulous FX fantasy factory, I present to you the very first American Horror Story: Freakshow trailer!
Welcome to the Freaktoria’s Secret fashion show! And was that Matt Damon?!? (just kidding)
Although the clip doesn’t give away many specific details about the upcoming American Horror Story season, I think it may give away a lot thematically as we look to be in store for the tale of a fallen angel as well as a heapin’ helpin’ dose of the ugly machinations behind the magic and beauty of a freakshow and learn that it’s something far more sinister than Red bull that gives you wings.
American Horror Story: Freakshow is set to premiere in October on FX.
UPDATE – There has been some speculation that the trailer is not official given that it was posted on the unverified “AHS FX” Youtube account as opposed to the “official” American Horror Story Youtube account. There has been no official word either way from FX, so it’s unclear if this is a professionally made hoax or a leaked version of the real thing. Stay tuned!
