It’s time to get sapphic and scary!
Ryan Murphy unveiled the first trailer for his new horror anthology series American Horror Stories and it features everything you could ask for.
This trailer truly is a Stefon sketch from SNL. It’s got Rubber Men, drive-in movie theatres, an evil, Mexican Santa Claus, Tipper Gore, the Murder House, lesbian shenanigans, and even Billie Lourd.
It also features plenty of monsters and horrors, including demons, ghosts, pig-mask-wearing killers, sapphics with switchblades, and witches.
But one thing we’re really excited about is all the queer girl action going on! One of the characters focused on in the trailer is Sierra McCormick’s Scarlett. The redhead seems to be visiting the infamous Murder House from the first season of American Horror Story. She also seems to be spending an awful lot of time with Ruby, played by Kaia Gerber. The two share a bathtub, talk about the "so many wonderful ways to make people suffer," and even make out.
Could Ruby be a sapphic ghost trapped in the house who puts on the rubber suit, a la Tate Langdon in season one of AHS? Is Kaia Gerber the Rubber Woman we’ve been seeing in promos?
But that’s just a small part of the show, and probably only one episode. The trailer has so, so, so much more. The show will feature a different horror story every episode, including some returning characters, locations, and monsters from previous AHS seasons. It’s going to be one wild ride!
Murphy recently announced a part of the cast, and damn, it is STACKED! The cast was unveiled in a 30-second teaser, which announced previous AHS veterans Matt Bomer, John Carroll Lynch, Naomi Grossman, and the aforementioned Billie Lourd.
It also included a huge list of newcomers, like Aaron Tveit, Gavin Creel, Ashley Martin Carter, Belissa Escobedo, Rhenzy Feliz, Madison Bailey, Kyle Red Silverstein, Amy Grabow, Virginia Gardner, Nico Greetham, Charles Melton, and Danny Trejo. Whew! That’s a long list!
The cast also includes queer stars like Glee’s Kevin McHale, Pose's Dyllón Burnside, and Paris Jackson, the daughter of Michael Jackson.
American Horror Stories premieres July 15 on FX on Hulu!
