For whatever reason it never dawned on me that FX’s “American Horror Story” has a supreme villain in each season. There was the Rubber Man, and then Bloody Face, with “Coven” fighting the Axe Man. What’s next?
Series co-creator Ryan Murphy reveals that “American Horror Story: Freakshow”, the fourth season in FX’s anthology series, will feature a killer clown!
…I thought it was going to be light but it’s turning out to be quite terrifyingly dark, which it feels much more like the Asylum season. But look — if you have a character named the Clown Killer, it’s going to be dark.”
When asked by EW for double confirmation, he replied:
“Yes,” confirms Murphy. “The most terrifying clown ever!”
EW previously reported that, the seres, returning this fall, is set in Jupiter, Florida, in 1950. “Freak Show” finds Jessica Lange playing a German ex-pat who is managing one of the last freak shows in the U.S.
Her group of “unusuals” Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett, and Frances Conroy all play performers whom Lange’s character has rescued.
Michael Chiklis, also stars with Denis O’Hare and the gorgeous Emma Roberts returning.
