Good Luck Sleeping After Watching This ‘American Horror Story: Freakshow’ Teaser

Seriously, Ryan Murphy, what happened to you as a child?!

Update: Some sites are reporting that this is a fan-made trailer. Good work, either way.

Those of you out there looking to add a little bit of unsettling spook to your Sunday will surely find that in spades in the creeptastic new teaser for FX’s “American Horror Story: Freakshow.” The latest installment of the Ryan Murphypalooza is short but not so much that it cuts out the terror.

A fallen angel. A sad, old-timey, Sepia-tinged setting. And, of course, a terrifying clown pulling the strings — or, in this case, slapdash-looking levers — behind the scenes.

Hello nightmares, thy name is this.

Honestly we were half-expecting a children’s choir to whisper-sing Radiohead’s “Creep” in the background (which, thank goodness they weren’t or else we might never go to bed ever again).

Ryan Murphy, we are more than a little bit terrified of your mind, dude.

Too much exuberance for one person. Follow her on Twitter @alicialutes.
