Hellz no

Ryan Murphy’s been dropping tantalizing clues about ‘AHS’ on Instagram

The first teaser for the upcoming season of American Horror Story scuttled our way last night, which revealed the overarching theme  — but only after Ryan Murphy taunted fans with a few clues and dripping-red herrings on his Instagram account.

AHS last clue before this week's TITLE reveal. Ideas?

Is it… a horrible remake of the horrible remake of the classic occult melodrama The Wicker Man?

He's Baaaaaack

Is it… the official Creepshow 3, replacing The Gravedigger with theoretically frightening Twisty The Clown from AHS: Freak Show?

AHS Season 7 clue: ambidexterity

Is it… this fucking thing?

There you have it. The next season will be officially Keeping Up With The Jonestowns and officially all things occult and culty: Think Heaven’s Gate realness, Hale Bopp, The Manson Family, human sacrifices; the works.

The trailers and opening title sequences are always our favorite part of the show (by a long stretch), and this one certainly doesn’t disappoint.
