American Horror Story – Freakshow – S01E01
I just got done with the premiere episode of American Horror Story and I have to say it didn’t disappoint and it managed to stick in plenty of creepy characters. Right off the bat we get the creepy damn clown who has quite the penchant for stabbing people and keeping them prisoner. Of course, you have to wonder, is that a mask? Somehow I think not.
We also have the Siamese twins who have been rescued from the hospital so they can be the main attraction at the show. We have Lobster Boy, who has an interesting set of hands that seem to be a big hit with the ladies. Oh my goodness, I’m not sure if he’s using his powers for good or not. The other cast of characters include the bearded lady, the contortionist (who showed the entire tent a good time), the world’s smallest woman, the tall woman and several other characters who talents we are sure to meet along the way.
In the center ring we have Elsa, the woman who brings all the talent together. Her dream is to be famous or perhaps recapture the fame she once had. She enjoys being in the limelight and these new attractions will help give the troupe the boost they need to sell seats.
So we have the Siamese twins who have a few skeletons in their closet. We have Lobster Boy who has done away with the local constabulary because he was going to take away the twins and he used the word "freak" one too many times. We have the sinister clown that has a way with a pair of scissors and seems to collect people as toys. And we have Elsa who’s past I’m sure is so twisted and demented we’re going to shake our heads in disbelief.
But a damn fine kickoff to this season. And if you happen to catch the preview for the rest of the season more characters are on the way. This is going to be pretty damn exciting and oh so damn creepy. I already don’t like that clown. He’s not giving me nightmares yet, but then again he’s only been around for one episode. I have a feeling by the time we figure out his story and see the path of bodies he leaves in his wake, that guy is going to mess me up. I can already see we are going to see some really interesting people in this season.
So what do you think? Is this going to be the most bizarre season yet?
