American Horror Story Will Probably Be Bad, But, Man, Are These Teasers Ever Creepy

Do you watch American Horror Story anymore? I don’t either. Despite being impressed with Lady Gaga’s acting and intrigued by Evan Peters’ interpretation of H.H. Holmes, I bailed on Hotel halfway through the season, much in the same way I bailed on Freak Show. That said, these promos for Season 6—theme unknown—are scary and intriguing, meaning I’ll probably tune into the first couple episodes of this mess, much in the same way I’ve done with the others.

According to Deadline, “it’s been previously stated that the season is set in the present with ‘echoes’ to the past,” leading them to speculate that, because of the Great Plains setting, season six will borrow from the gory history of the Bloody Benders, a family of serial killers that murdered victims in Kansas in the late 1800s.

The above promo reminds me of my favorite film Addams Family Values, only unlike Addams Family Values, this show will likely be bad.

One of my greatest childhood fears was that a hand would grab me from the slatted stairs that led down to our unfinished basement, which is all to say that this trailer made me feel very comfortable and not at all like I’m going to crawl out of my skin.

Better put some Neosporin on that, my dude.

Dammit, Ryan Murphy. You get me every time.

Having watched a lot of AHS, I can safely say that the promos are usually around two to three times better than the actual show
