Killer clowns unleash political nightmare in 'American Horror Story'

  • American Horror Story Sarah Paulson will play Ally in the new series

For many, November 8, 2016, was, truly, an American horror story. American Horror Story: Cult doesn't necessarily have the same top-tier cast that we've seen of some previous seasons. Last night's Season 7 premiere, "Election Night", opened with various characters' reactions to watching the real outcome of our real 2016 election play out through actual news coverage. It happens when her character in AHS: Cult, Ally Mayfair-Richards, realizes that Donald Trump is going to be the next president of the United States. It sets the stage for the rest of the season - it looks like it's Ally v. her own mind v. whatever this cult is. Yet, on her first night looking after the kid, she shows him snuff videos and the dark web.

"As much as I hate him, I didn't trust her!"
"And using people's vulnerabilities about how they're afraid, and feeling vulnerable, and they don't know where to turn, and they feel like the world is on fire", said Murphy. We also see Ally visiting her therapist Dr. Rudy Vincent (Cheyenne Jackson) to try to get her phobias in control. Winter and Oz ventured out of the house to investigate and they saw the clowns in action, slitting their throats and writing on the walls with blood.

Ally lives with trypophobia, the disgust (and in her case fear) of small, closely connected holes.

It's too early to say that Winter is the group's leader, but it seems pretty likely that there's at least some connection-and that it might get stronger as the season progresses. If Ivy decides she can't cope, will this episode be the last straw or the final escalation? We don't know yet-but if this season really is an allegory for our current politics, I think we all know what the answer will be. Ally and Kai's first encounter consists of him spilling his latte on her and Ivy and calling her out of her name.

Get ready to join the cult, kids, because the American Horror Story season 7 premiere is nearly here.

THR has screened the first three episodes and though Kai's cult has yet to take shape, the murderous clown posse that appears to be infiltrating the once-idyllic MI town is an early link to what Cult viewers are expecting, based on the thorough marketing campaign FX launched around the season. On the series, the killer clown is seen sneaking up on a young couple as the guy is explaining the clown's violent history to his lady friend. However, the bullets have no effect and Twisty slits his throat and eventually murders the female. Resuming his maniacally quiet role, it seems that Twisty has a kingdom of clown-enthuist followers, including Oz, who is caught with a Twisty-themed comic book, sending Ally into a panic attack. If the complete silence and bad fluorescent lighting weren't enough to freak her out, what happens next nearly kills her. Ally sees a bunch of clowns parading around the store, including two doing a lot more than PDA in the produce section.

Winter Anderson (Billie Lourd) will also be introduced soon, who will serve as Ally's replacement for her Hispanic nanny who's gone missing. The child later reports seeing a group of clowns murdering his parents' friends - it's now unclear if that's really the case or the result of watching some pretty violent and twisted things with Winter.
