‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ Teaser Trailers May Give You Nightmares

As the Oct. 8 premiere date for “American Horror Story: Freak Show” approaches, FX has upped the ante with its recent teaser trailers for the latest installment of Ryan Murphy’s twisted miniseries, with sword-swallowers, clowns and three-legged contortionists among the “freaks” inviting viewers to watch (or run screaming in the opposite direction).

Check out all the nightmarish teaser videos FX has released so far:

The fourth season of the anthology series stars “AHS” alums Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Frances Conroy, Evan Peters, Emma Roberts and Denis O’Hare, along with series newcomers Michael Chiklis, Patti LaBelle, Finn Wittrock and John Carroll Lynch. Matt Bomer and Wes Bentley are set to guest star.

Per FX, “Freak Show” begins its tale in the quiet, sleepy hamlet of Jupiter, Florida. 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. This is the story of the performers and their desperate journey of survival amidst the dying world of the American carny experience.
