Clues about American Horror Story theme
You have a 1 in 6 of randomly selecting the real teaser but the series dropped some clues about the real theme. They story will be “operatic” which doesn’t necessarily mean it has anything to do with the opera. It could just mean melodrama like a soap opera. The setting takes place in primarily in the present but also the past. It will also feature children; however we don’t know if they in the past or present.
A parody of a classic monster movie The Creature from the Black Lagoon. It certainly fits the bill for melodramatic. Perhaps the children are the ones who grew up watching theses movies.
A woman climbing a staircase is attacked by her own shadow. This also had a classic monster movie atmosphere. That puts the veracity of both The Shadow and Blind Date into doubt since we know only one promo is real.
A monstrous hand reaches up from old-fashioned crib reminiscent of Rosemary’s Baby. Could it be Elizabeth’s not-so aborted baby, Bartholomew, from the previous season Hotel. This teaser is definitely a leading contender and the one I personally selected.
A nurse uses hedge clippers to cut a wind chime made out of teeth. Could she be an evil tooth fairy? That story would certainly feature children and put it in the running for the real teaser.
A man uses a staple gun on the head of his decrepit patient. This enigmatic teaser stands out so much it could be the real one.
A camper experiences a classic alien abduction until the beam of light breaks his back. Alien abductions are said to be recurring events sometimes starting in childhood.
The new season stars Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Denis O’Hare, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Finn Wittrock, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer, Lady Gaga, Cheyenne Jackson, Leslie Jordan, Cuba Gooding Jr.
American Horror Story season 6 premieres September 14, Wednesday 10PM on FX.
