'AHS: Cult' trailer shows Trump's win kicking off creepy clown cult

Creator Ryan Murphy previously said that the election would play a big role in getting the action going, so the inclusion of these masks aren't surprising, just grim. Nearly every season, the horror maestro has given his favorite actor a role that subverts the performer's innate charm-challenging those who have mild to severe crushes on Peters to overcome, say, the fact that he's a serial killer, or an incoherent frat-boy Frankenstein's monster, or an art-obsessed maniac in a powdered wig. It appears Ally and Ivy also have a child, a solid social circle of stylish lesbian friends and a large home.

And while plot details are being kept under wraps, "American Horror Story: Cult" did release character posters earlier this month in anticipation of the new season.

Allison Pill will play Ally's partner, Ivy, who will be sporting a grown-up edition of an alternative lifestyle haircut.

It all starts in MI on 2016's election night, when Trump's win triggers a crippling phobia for Ally Mayfair Richards (Paulson) - her fear of clowns.

Long serving AHS cast members Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Cheyenne Jackson, Emma Roberts, and Frances Conroy are returning to the fold this year, although it doesn't seem Kathy Bates or Angela Bassett are returning (bummer). But her son's new babysitter (Billie Lourd) appears to be into dark forces, and is laying some clown traps with the kid for. reasons.

Paulson's character Ally suffers from agoraphobia as well as fear of clowns.

How do you feel about the new series intro for season 7 of American Horror Story?

Before the trailer dropped, we had little information about Cult - other than it centers around the election, includes a creepy clown cult and features Twisty the Clown from American Horror Story: Freak Show, in some capacity.
