Well it’s about time! I think we can speak for a fair few when we say everyone has been waiting for this! There are many that could have guessed that AHS would come out with a classic slasher themed season, and here it is. Our peak into this new season is a new tile, simply 1984, and an accompanying video of a distressed woman running through a forest from the delightfully stereotypical, slow walking killer. It showcases classic 80’s horror schemes with a modern musical twist: Billie Eilish’s Six Feet Under. In addition, if you watch the bottom right corner of the screen, every so often you will see 1984 AHS spelled out individually in various shots.
The big question however is this: will AHS present an 80’s themed slasher capable of making people believe that it was filmed around the same time as, say, Friday the 13th? Furthermore, will they bring a killer that can equate to the epic slashers such as Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, or Michael Meyers? At this point we can only speculate as to what will come, but hopefully AHS will deliver something we, as horror fanatics, can be proud of.
