American Horror Story Promos Filled With Scary Clowns Are The Worst

We knew some part of the new carnival-themed American Horror Story: Freak Show would have scary clowns. And now our fears are confirmed. A new batch of AHS promos are out and it's almost all scary clowns. There's nothing worse than a clown.


I have absolutely no idea how I'm going to get through this season. I don't "fear" clowns, I hate them. I hate them so much. I hate them and I want them to go away immediately. Ugh, this is going to be torture

I've come to despise these teasers, because they never seem to exist within the settings they're teasing. Like remember how completely creepy and nutso the Coven ones were? And then the season itself was more camp than creep, and there was a notable lack of lady witches in airborne time-out positions, or any sort of snake-swallowing.

Wait, both those examples sound more sexual than I intended. But you know what I mean. I'd bet good money that this season won't feature either of these legitimately terrifying clowns. It's like watching a live-action trailer for a video game. I'm not even sure they capture the spirit of the final product.
