American Horror Story Freak Show Preview: Entering the Gates of Hell

at . Comments

FX has released a new, extended, freaky trailer for American Horror Story: Freak Show.

Largely told from the point of view of Sarah Paulson's two-headed character (one named Bette, the other named Dot), the preview takes us under the tent of Ryan Murphy’s latest creation.

It will be set in Florida in the 1950s and center on a number of freaks performers who must deal with low attendance numbers at their carnival, along with harassing local residents that seek to drive them away.

There's also a killer clown on the loose because... come on. Would you expect anything else?!?

American Horror Story: Freak Show premieres on Wednesday, October 8 at 10/9c on FX, bringing back franchise alums such as Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters and many more.

Get a look at fresh footage now:
