Up until this point, we’ve only been treated to short but terrifying teasers that last a few seconds each. Now, we have an entire one minute of clips: enough to give you nightmares for a while.
The trailer gives us a few ideas as to each actor’s Freak Show character.
Kathy Bates, as the bearded lady Effil Darlin, gets help trimming her facial hair, while her son, played by Evan Peters, is busy getting frisky with another freak show performer.
Sarah Paulson, as Siamese twins Bette and Dot Tattler, gives us a good idea as to each character’s respective and very different personalities.
Michael Chiklis as The World’s Strongest Man, Wendell Del Toredo, and his wife, the tribreasted woman, played by Angela Bassett, are also seen.
Jessica Lange, as Elsa Mars, is the last character to be seen, revealing herself in a red and white dress that has a striking resemblance to the large tent of the freak show. She’s followed by her doting assistant, played by Jyoti Amge.
One of the only surviving sideshows in the country struggles to stay in business during the dawning era of television. When police make a terrifying discovery at a local farmhouse, the eccentric purveyor of the freak show sees an opportunity that will lead her troupe either to their salvation or ruin.
American Horror Story: Freak Show premieres October 8 at 10PM EST on FX.
