LOS ANGELES — “American Horror Story” is back and creepy as ever.
The FX show released a teaser video for its ninth season, titled “American Horror Story: 1984.” If the title card is any indication, viewers can expect, blood — and lots of it.
“1984” should be a good hint the new season will pay tribute to ’80s slasher films, where scary serial killers go running around on the screen with a knife (or a other sharp object of the killer’s choice).
The “American Horror Story” trailer for fits that criteria precisely: scary forest, screaming, a sharp knife and images of people running away from a man in a terrifying black outfit.
(The Billie Eilish song in the background makes the imagery even more eerie.)
“American Horror Story: 1984” premieres this fall.
