This 'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Clown Will Haunt Your Dreams


If you're not afraid of clowns already, you will be after watching this American Horror Story: Freak Show teaser.

Like all the other teasers for AHS, this 15-second preview tells nothing of the plot but manages to successfully be as creepy as possible. The clip shows a clown dancing in the shadows right before he flashes his terrifying grin (or as the clip is titled, his "twisted smile.")

Season 4 of the FX show is set in Jupiter, FL and will have Jessica Lange returning for one final performance on the series. "The year is 1952. A troupe of curiosities has just arrived to town, coinciding with the strange emergence of a dark entity that savagely threatens the lives of townsfolk and freaks alike," the Freak Show press release reads. "This is the story of the performers and their desperate journey of survival amidst the dying world of the American carny experience."
