The verrrry mysterious sixth season of American Horror Story finally premiered, revealing a vague plot involving the lost colony of Roanoke andThe Juice shtupping his prosecutor?
What is the theme of the new American Horror Story?
That was the question that weve been naughtily teased with these last few months, with FX not only keeping nearly every single detail of the sixth installment of the franchise under wraps, from cast to plot to level of Lady Gaga involvement, but purposefully sending fans on wild goose chases for answers, with the network releasing a series of red herring teasers for the new season, which finally began Wednesday night.
Still we had guesses.
Is it about spiders crawling into your spine? Eyeballs that you suck on like Jolly Ranchers? Creepy rural farms where smokestacks billow into perfectly artistic promo spots? Or, as a last-ditch guess mere seconds before the season premiered, does the theme have something to do with the new Mercedes-Benz cars lit by moody-red chandeliers Ryan Murphy was giving away in a sweepstakes?
Are you, winner Miranda W. from Oklahoma, a clue to this years theme of American Horror Story?
Or maybe its about the Blair Witch. Or a Keeping Up With the Kardashians spin on thrills. Based on the just-revealed title, My Roanoke Nightmare, it could be that this season is about my 2005 senior week road trip to the Outer Banks where no one would sell us alcohol and Karen wouldnt speak to Anthony. (#TBT.)
Just kidding. It appears that this new season of American Horror Story is an arguably clever spin on the It Happened to Me re-enactment shows that have swarmed our TV screens on channels like TLC and Investigation Discovery.
