American Horror Story's ninth season is full of classic slasher horror
American Horror Story is returning for a ninth season and it's finally given us a trailer to get all worked up about.
It’s going to be hitting our screens on Wednesday, September 18th at 10pm ET on FX. The first thing we thought when we heard about this was that it doesn’t make sense. It’s totally the wrong time to release the show.
Films like ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’, ‘Maniac’, ‘Halloween 2’ and of course ‘Friday the 13th’ have generally released on the cliched Friday the 13th.
The title of the season is not in fact in reference to some kind of George Orwell dystopia, instead it is inspired by infamous slasher movies that came out throughout the 80s.
Whilst we may never know the answer to that mystery, we do know a few other things about AHS 1984. We hate to say it but it seems like Evan Peters, will ‘NOT’ be in this iteration of the show, a first for AHS.
Here is the video where Evan Peters told me he will not be returning to American Horror Story. This is the first time in nine seasons he will not be part of the show! #AHS pic.twitter.com/Eb30bXzMFR— crldsnts (@CandidlyCarlo) April 2, 2019
We do however get to see Gus Kenworthy in the show as Emma Roberts’ character's boyfriend.
The trailer shows a group of impressively faithful to the 80s dressed teens, all of which are also impressively attractive, ignorantly heading to the "site of the worst summer massacre of all time'.
Set in a cabin fittingly secluded, the teens must survive the murderous endevours of a character named Mr Jingles. The trailer, oozing with slasher goodness, shows over the top gore and horror, suspense, teen romance, ignorance. Basically everything you'd want from a slasher film adapted for the silver screen.
The cast of American Horror Story: 1984 includes Emma Roberts, Cody Fern, Gus Kenworthy, Billie Lourd, Matthew Morrison, Angelica Ross, DeRon Horton, and Zach Villa.
