‘American Horror Story’ Releases Opening Credits For Season 7, Feature Trump & Clinton Masks
The American Horror Story season seven opening credits have dropped, and it is more telling about the story than a teaser would be.
AMERICAN HORROR STORY: CULT RELEASES OPENING CREDITS
Ryan Murphy‘s brainchild changes its opening credits for each season, giving hints as to what the cult show will be about. This year, the video for AHS: Cult features people dressed in ghastly masks of Donald Trump‘s and Hillary Clinton‘s faces.
The credits continue with the creepy images of bees and critters crawling through tiny holes in someone’s skin. Clowns, a carousel, a casket, and a bathtub full of what looks like blood, pepper the intro with quick cuts. The music is a variation on the common theme song, but with a drumline intermixed, making it sound like a presidential march.
“Watch it begin. Witness the opening credits for #AHSCult,” writes the official American Horror Story Twitter account.
