The creator of American Horror Story , Ryan Murphy, has been creeping out the audience of American Horror Story since 2011.  He keeps his audience hooked by changing the season’s theme every season, and his insane plot twists. Who would ever expect a school shooter to be a ghost that impregnated his girlfriend’s mom? Not I. But with this season being wrapped around the 2016 election, the previews showing clowns, Evan Peters with blue hair, and the season being called “Cult” what can  Murphy possibly have up his sleeve this time?

The first season of American Horror Story: Cult begins with four different reactions to the news that Donald Trump was to be the 45th president of the united states. One reaction was fear. You see a lesbian couple crumble to there knees as the fear of losing their marriage license hits reality. Sarah Paulson’s character, Ally Mayfair-Richards questions how the press’ polls were so wrong and cries in the arms of her lover (Ivy Mayfair-Richards), played by Allison Pill. Next there is anger as the other couple in the room get in an argument because the woman claimed that she didn’t have time to vote. Lastly, there’s Evan Peter’s character, Kai Anderson, who’s so happy about the results that he goes to his TV and begins to thrust his hips against it. Then there’s Winter Anderson (Billie Lourd) who is so in shock that she doesn’t know how to react, all she can think is that Clinton should have won and as she sits there frozen her friend on the phone begins to tell her to not to think about self harm and that everything will be ok. Now, these are all realistic examples of how people could’ve  acted when they found out that Trump had won, but this is Ryan Murphy we’re talking about so things can’t stay this normal.

The first amazing thing happens. Twisty the clown from season 7 is back! Everyone’s favorite killer clown has returned, but only for a brief second. Twisty had a little segment where he is shown killing a couple that try to do some nasty things in the park. Twisty’s main reason for returning, is so that Paulson’s character’s phobias can be revealed, and frankly clowns are one of them. Anderson also blends cheetos and puts them on his face in the mirror and proceeds to talk with his hands and purse his lips in order to sound like Trump. The real question is does it get any creepier than Twisty’s return, and Evan’s cheeto face? The answer is yes! There’s a moment when Ally goes to the supermarket and  has crazy hallucinations of people in masks chasing her around the store, and people in costumes having sex in the produce section, and a triple headed mean following her on a scooter with a knife.

With all this being said this season already seems promising, and I can’t wait to see what else is in store. The characters are just as creepy and eerie as always and I’m at lost for predictions of what could happen next. Hopefully more Twisty the clown, and less Evan Peters with blue hair.
