New Snapchat teasers for AHS season 6 reveal a bit more about the cryptic installment. Well, sort of.
Blink and you’ll miss the new season 6 teasers for AHS. Coming to FX September 14, the hit anthology has gone well out of its way to keep the buzz surrounding the series almost non-existent.
New teasers from Snapchat brought about clues regarding the location, another bit of support for Ryan Murphy’s teaser that more children will be involved, and, of course, a creepy staircase. You can watch the compiled clips below thanks to the magic of Tumblr.
We have a farm house! A creepy mobile with an even creepier hand! And some people grabbing at ankles from under a stairwell! Where would a horror show be without those? (I’ll be honest I jumped at the hand in the crib. I’m not immune to the horror that AHS is capable of achieving!)
So, what can we make of all this? Not much, but we are going to try.
In the last teaser, released at the FX Exhibition at Comic Con, we were able to see a steel building within which fans got to immerse themselves in the AHS Fearless VR teaser that placed them on a stretcher and wheeled them through a creepy lab filled with fetuses in jars. All that was reminiscent of past seasons where doctor’s experiments led to some rather terrifying results. Perhaps this is the thread that ties the entire series together.
Keeping that idea rolling, we now have a greenish monster hand taking a knife from a child’s crib. I’m hoping that the “monster” figure only appears in teaser form, much like some of the past years where the content in the trailers never appeared on screen.
The most impressive and highly intriguing trailer is the farm house with the smoke creating the mysterious question mark/number six that has come to define the season thus far. Farm houses are terrifying enough, if that is what the setting is meant to signify, but mix in a basement of horrors and you have my attention, AHS.
Personally, I am loving the slow burn of information for season 6. In the past, casting announcements dominated the news cycle and 13 to 14 teasers per season was overkill. Keeping the audience at arms length is doing a great deal more to subvert expectations, which the show needs after two, arguably three, lack luster seasons.
AHS season 6 premieres Wednesday, September 14 at 10:00 p.m. ET on FX.
