“Welcome to Camp Redwood. Good luck leaving alive.” That just about says it all. FX has released the latest teaser trailer for American Horror Story: 1984, the ninth season of Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s Emmy-winning horror anthology.
Set to period-specific tunes by the Motels and John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band, the footage shows unsuspecting teens drinking beer while driving toward Camp Redwood, with a knife-wielding killer hiding underneath their Ford pickup. At the end of the clip, the masked man rises out of the lake and takes aim at an unsuspecting camper in a canoe.
The cast includes Emma Roberts, Cody Fern, Gus Kenworthy, Billie Lourd, as well as Matthew Morrison, Pose star Angelica Ross, DeRon Horton and Zach Villa. AHS alum Sarah Paulson will have a smaller part in the upcoming season as she takes on the lead role in Murphy’s Netflix series Ratched, we hear.
Little is known about AHS Season 9, other than the theme is ’80s slasher films, but we’re getting a bit more of a hint with the latest teaser.
American Horror Story: 1984 premieres September 18 on FX.
Check out the clip above.
