After holding out on Ryan Murphy fans for the greater part of the year, FX has been feverishly laying down a trail of breadcrumbs over the past month or so, in the form of short promotional videos for the next installment of “American Horror Story.”
The most exciting pieces released by the network, however, came over the last 24 hours, with the release of a new trailer featuring actual footage from the upcoming season, as well as the rather surprising reveal of this season’s main title sequence, which went up on the show’s Facebook page earlier today.
Both videos, which you can check out below, bask in a display of grotesque imagery. Those who are squeamish or easily offended need not press play.
“American Horror Story: Freak Show” premieres October 8 at 10pm on FX.
