American Horror Story is raising its freak flag for all to see. Alright, alright, so maybe Ryan Murphy's little-show-that-could has always proudly waved its flag, but season four is going to wave the biggest one yet.
Seriously, what's freakier than a beheaded Kathy Bates watching Roots while an angry Emma Roberts bangs a sewn-together hunk-boy hybrid? How's about an entire season dedicated to circus freak shows from the mind that brought you a beheaded Kathy Bates watching Roots while an angry Emma Roberts bangs a sewn-together hunk-boy hybrid?
Ryan Murphy leaked the title of AHS's fourth season today over Twitter, further fueling the already-hyped installment. Based on what we know for sure, Freak Show will take place at a spooky carnival with Jessica Lange playing a role that involves a German accent. The rest is, well,
up in the air flying through the air with the greatest of ease. Imagine Sarah Paulson playing the ring leader, calling the shots like the ruler she is. Scratch that — imagine Jessica Lange rocking a top hat, cracking the whip, and being all ring leader-y. Let the freak show begin.
