Is This The Creepy Theme For ‘American Horror Story’ Season 6?

American Horror Story season six premieres in just over two weeks, and we still don’t know what the theme is. We’ve seen murder houses, asylums, covens, freak shows, and hotels — what’s next? All FX CEO John Landgraf will say is that “there are many more trailers than you’ve actually seen for hypothetical seasons of American Horror Story — different genres, different places. One of them is accurate; the others are all misdirects.” It could be Children of the Corn (nope), or maybe something having to do with spiders (NOPE), or possibly a Stephen King “homage” (those are so in right now).

That last one seems to be the most popular theory, for two reasons: this creepy-ass promo (imaging how terrifying it would be if the monster, or whatever it is, didn’t look like something from a crummy late-1990s PlayStation game), and Rotten Tomatoes possibly giving the answer away.

“The Mist” — which is also the name of a novel, which was turned into a movie, which is being turned into a show — sounds cool and mysterious, but it’s unlikely to stick. For one thing, I’m not sure how Spike would feel about that title; also, every other season is named after a location. Why change now? Still, one of the promos is, to quote Landgraf, “accurate.” It could be “The Mist,” but not called that. Maybe American Horror Story: The Dark Tower.
