Well, this is the moment we have all been waiting for since the second the last season ended. The creepiest and spookiest show on television (maybe) is back for another season, and this time it goes by the name of American Horror Story: Freak Show.

With tidbits of the series being spattered all over the show’s social media, and trailers haunting us seemingly every where we go, we’re right about ready to get this show on the road. According to the American Horror Story official website:
“American Horror Story: Freak Show begins its tale in the quiet, sleepy hamlet of Jupiter, Florida. The year is 1952. A troupe of curiosities has just arrived to town, coinciding with the strange emergence of a dark entity that savagely threatens the lives of townsfolk and freaks alike. This is the story of the performers and their desperate journey of survival amidst the dying world of the America carny experience.”
In essence, we’re expecting a lot old childhood nightmares to resurface – maybe referencing demonic clowns and uncomfortable abnormalities. However, as we all know, every carnival is so much more than just clowns. In addition to featuring the smallest woman alive in the new season, there are plenty of characters to keep to keep you entertained…Or should we say horrified? Take a look below.

What we find so intriguing about these images is that while some of the “freaks'” abnormalities are apparent – like the bearded lady, triple-breasted woman, or Siamese twin – some of these characters look plainly “normal” in comparison. It goes to show that sometimes there really is a “freak” in all of us, whether it is physically obvious or not.
