Trump, Clinton Make Their Debut in 'American Horror Story: Cult' Opening

  • 'American Horror Story: Cult' Cast Attends Cher's Vegas Show!

As all American Horror Story fans know, one of the scariest parts of nearly every episode happens within the first few minutes - during the opening credits, that is. Why is American Horror Story promoting complete and utter disrespect towards the American flag? As usual, when it comes to AHS, I am experiencing a range of emotions, primarily fear and excitement. Murphy makes up for the sequence's absence a year ago with buckets of blood, creepy-crawly infested squalor, and naturally, clowns (both the circus and the political type) in the AHS: Cult credits. Watch the opening sequence below at your own discretion.

And although we're not entirely sure what the season will bring, the opening credits are creepily politically-charged!

Murphy had previously stated that the season will have a political spin, so the appearance of people in creepy-ass plastic Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton masks isn't a surprise here. All of that looks mild, though, compared to the image of a dead pupper (ugh whyyyyy) that appears halfway through the sequence. They look nearly cartoonish and like a cheap Halloween costume, but the setting is more than enough to make them look incredibly spooky. The cast of the new season also includes returnees Emma Roberts, Frances Conroy, Adina Porter and Mare Winningham, and newcomers Colton Haynes, Lena Dunham and Leslie Grossman.

It's not what you think it is...

Though his comments certainly don't clear much up for us (it is, after all, one of the most top secret shows on television), the EP did say that there will be a "streak of paranoia" running throughout the season.
