New ‘American Horror Story: 1984’ Trailer Goes Full ’80s Slasher Horror

FX Networks

Check out the new trailer released for the next chapter of American Horror Story, this time heading back to the ’80s.

Yes, the teaser trailer hinted at ’80s slasher tropes, and sure enough, the full trailer for American Horror Story: 1984 confirms we’re going to be getting an homage-filled nod to the likes of the Halloween and Friday the 13th franchises.

Emma Roberts, Billie Lourd, Cody Fern, Gus Kenworthy, and DeRon Horton play a group of friends on a trip that goes to hell when they begin to be terrorised by a serial killer that’s escaped an asylum. Meet Mr. Jingles. Oh, and there’s also the chance that he could be the person they ran over. Looks like someone may know what they did last summer.

It looks like bloody, campy fun! American Horror Story: 1984 will begin on FX on September 18.
