"American Horror Story: Freak Show" Releases Most Terrifying Teaser Yet
The latest teaser for "American Horror Story: Freak Show is the scariest one yet. You'll need to watch it to believe it!

American Horror Story: Freak Show has released some pretty chilling promotional teasers over the last few weeks. But, I think it’s safe to say that this most recent one is by far the most terrifying.

The teaser features what is perhaps this season’s darkest character, Twisty the Clown, played by John Carroll Lynch, swinging on a trapeze only to flip off and land with his face centered in the frame:

“We said in the writer’s room that if we were going to do clowns, we were going to create the most terrifying clown of all time,” creator Ryan Murphy told BuzzFeed News when discussing Twisty’s creation. “That was our goal when we were writing him, but I’m worried about people being too afraid of our clown. It’s heart-stopping what he does. I’m worried. I’m worried that people are going to have cardiac arrests…”

American Horror Story: Freak Show premieres October 8 at 10PM EST on FX.
