'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Teaser Is a Fake, But Still Awesome
By Jackie Willis
Who has this much time on their hands?! Turns out the American Horror Story: Freak Show teaser everyone is talking about is fan-made -- but it's so good and creepy, we'd like to see this angel in the show!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the clip that has been making the rounds online is actually a fake teaser for the FX series. The cable network confirmed that no official footage has been released for the upcoming season.
That being said, the fan-made video goes right in line with what one would expect from an AHS teaser: super creepy and zero clues as to what to expect in the upcoming season. The 20-second clip opens with a blonde woman dressed as an angel on what looks to be a traveling circus stage. As the camera cuts to her from behind, you see that a man has actually drilled wings into her back and is maneuvering them like a puppeteer.
This will be Golden Globe winner Jessica Lange's final season on AHS, and this time the show--which resets itself every season-- will be set in Jupiter, Florida in 1950. The acclaimed actress will play a German ex-pat who's managing one of the last freak shows in the United States. In addition to Lange, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett, Frances Conroy and Kathy Bates will all be returning. THR also reports that The Shield's Michael Chiklis has been cast as Peters' character's father and Bates' ex-husband.
What do you think of the AHS teaser? Did you think it was real?
