American Horror Story Season 4 — “Circus” Theme Inspires Fan Posters (PHOTOS)
Don't work yourselves into a tizzy, American Horror Story fans: We're not saying that the theme for Season 4 is "Circus" or "Carnival." But that theory has run rampant online. And it makes sense: Tons of people find clowns terrifying, and sideshow "freaks" are often transfixing and scary in their own way. Plus, we know that Season 4 takes place around 1950, which was a prime era for traveling circuses.
The "circus" idea has inspired artistic of AHS fans to create posters around the theme — and the works of art are so good that they've even caught the eye of co-creator Ryan Murphy.
"I saw those posters," he tells Entertainment Weekly. "I don't know where people came up with that idea. Sometimes I think its people wanting us to do topics and doing fan posters. No one has completely guessed what it is."
