September 14th, on FOX, will see the return, of American Horror Story, for it’s 6th season. Every fan of the show, is dying to know what the theme of this season will be.
The AHS creators, and the big brass at the FOX network, want to keep season 6 a total secret, until the season premier.
Teaser trailers, have been released over the days and weeks leading up to the big night, but only 1 of the teasers is the real one. Below are the teaser trailers, Parts 1 to 10.
So here is my thoughts on what I like, love, think… meh, or don’t like, hate
This teaser trailer immediately makes me think of the baby in season one’s ‘Murder House’. If the rumour is true, that all the seasons will link up in season 6, could this be the link that brings it all together?
2. What’s Cooking
I don’t know about you, but this 2nd teaser trailer, called ‘Whats Cooking’, makes me think of ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’. That would be interesting, and very dark avenue to go down. LeatherFace done AHS Style? Imagine the possibilities!!!
3. Sunset Stroll
The 3rd entry, titled Sunset Stroll, really had me stumped! Family going for a walk… Looks like rough terrain. The desert maybe? Nuclear waste, or a radioactive spill has made them into crazy cannibals? Zombies perhaps? The whole zombie thing, would be a brave move, with the likes of ‘The Walking Dead’ to compete with.
Verdict: No Thanks
4. Milli Crossing
GaGa much? This looks like ‘The Countess’ from season 5’s ‘Hotel’. We already saw a major link to season 1, when a pregnant countess, went to the murder house, to get an abortion, and kept baby, to the dismay of James Patrick March. So if chosen, could this be an indication, that will be expanded on and link the seasons together?
Verdict: Very Interesting
The surgeon from hell! This has traits of season 2’s ‘Asylum’. It has an incredibly dark, and sinister feeling to it. Something in a hospital, with a ‘Doctor Death’ type figure, could be pretty awesome!
The People Under The Stairs!!! EEK!!! If you’ve seen the film, you’ll know what I mean. The basement is dark and full of mystery… whats evil lurks down there? If a season of AHS was done along the lines of the ‘People Under The Stairs’ film, that would be some dark, evil television indeed.
7. The Mist
I’m in love this teaser trailer. There’s nothing complicated about it. There’s no metaphor, there is no hidden meaning. What creatures are lurk in the mist? You know somethings coming out of it, but you don’t know what it is. Its what you don’t see that is the most terrifying, and that’s a really clever way way of going about things.
If ‘The Mist’ was to be the theme of season 6, I would be a very happy man. This has the potential to be incredible.
Verdict: In Love
8. Hang Tight
Chains and meat hooks. Perhaps a torture room that James Patrick March himself would revel in. Though I have to say, an episode with a torture room would be awesome, but I don’t see it being a theme for a whole season of AHS.
9. The Shadow
‘The Shadow’ is another teaser trailer, that I think has real potential to be turned into a full season. This one seems to me, to have the feeling of the old silent films, like Nosferatu for example. There is lots of different angles that can be explored here, and would give the writers, almost a whole new universe to work in, and be creative. And again, this is another example of, its what you don’t see that, that gives you the fear. For something to give you real fear and terror, sometimes, the image or the story doesn’t have to shown and explained. Its the story, or the picture that is created in your mind, that can really bring the horror to life. I think this could be used in that way.
Verdict: In Love
10. Wind Chimes
This is a bit of a dud really. An evil dentist? Maybe! This is another one that wouldn’t have a season based around it. The teaser definitely has shock value. We’ve all had the dream about our teeth being pulled out.
