The moody sneak peek, made by fans and released Sunday, shows an angel somberly flapping her feathered wings as an eerie piano ballad plays in the background. Seems innocent enough – until an evil mime pops up, pulling the strings behind the whole spooky spectacle.
The scary preview makes sense given the fourth season's fresh setting: a Florida carnival in the 1950s.
Wondering where the show's recurring cast members (Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Emma Roberts and Gabourey Sidibe, to name a few) are? It turns out the clip was created by fans – but it should still send chills down your spine as you wait for an official unveiling of the notoriously disturbing AHS openers.
And creator Ryan Murphy is sure to enlist his celebrity friends for cameos. Last year's witchy American Horror Story: Coven saw Steve Nicks and Patti LuPone as guest stars.
Freakshow premieres in October on FX.
