‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ premiered on Oct. 8, and it was just as creepy, unexpected and awesome as we hoped it would be! So many new characters were introduced tonight, but fans are seriously freaking out over Twisty The Clown!
The much anticipated American Horror Story: Freak Show premiere sure gave us the goosebumps! As expected, Ryan Murphy gave us yet another compelling, character-driven and horror-inducing season to look forward to — not to mention possibly the most terrifying villain yet!
‘AHS’ Season Premiere: Fans Freak Out Over Twisty The Clown
One thing that will for sure be haunting our dreams throughout the AHS season is Twisty the Clown. That huge, toothy smile is something not be forgotten! Played by John Carroll Lynch, Twisty has a white face with bits of blood around his eyes and mouth.
Plus, his eyes literally freeze your soul!
It’s true that each season of AHS has a bunch of creepy characters and psychotic villains, but Twisty the Clown (who is, not shockingly… a killer!) may just be the worst, or dare we say best, one yet! He definitely gives Bloodyface a run for his money!
Here are the latest tweets from AHS fans who are totally terrified, petrified, horrified… and yet intrigued:

‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ — The Critics Speak Out
Freak Show will quite possibly be Ryan Murphy’s most killer season yet! Fans and critics are already buzzing about the excitement of AHS‘s fourth installment. Here’s what some of them are saying:
“The freakiest thing about American Horror Story: Freak Show is that it didn’t happen sooner.”
“Ryan Murphy’s interest in the freaks of ‘Freak Show’ is only skin-deep…I would enjoy being transported back in time to the bygone era when circus sideshows featured human oddities among their gleefully seedy cons…all of which makes me an ideal audience for Ryan Murphy’s latest edition of FX’s premier scare-fest, American Horror Story: Freak Show. Alas, I found it insufficiently lurid — slow-paced and obvious.”
“As campy, high-velocity genre fare, Freak Show is all in good fun — but as an allegory for the prison of suburban conformity, it’s an American horror story, indeed.”
Did YOU watch the premiere of Freak Show, HollywoodLifers? Did Twisty the Clown terrify you? Or, did something else scare you more? Let us know!
