Full Length ‘AHS: 1984’ Trailer Celebrates 80s Slasher Genre

Continuing the surprisingly resilient love affair with the 1980s, the first full length trailer for American Horror Story: 1984 (premiering on Sept. 18) lands drenched in MTV fashions and Friday the 13th aesthetics.

The threadbare premise sees Cody Fern, Billie Lourd, Emma Roberts, Gus Kenworthy, and a full cast of photogenic campers and counselors head to a Crystal Lake stand-in summer camp…and you can imagine the rest.  And instead of a crazy mother or disfigured, hockey mask wearing son, those crazy teens will have to stop playing Pitfall and keep an eye out for renowned serial killer, Mr. Jingles (not to be confused with 90s killer dentist Mr. Giggles, which will probably be the inspiration for next season’s AHS: 92).

Check out the nostalgic trailer for the ninth season of the FX program below and prepare for mayhem (and convoluted story-telling) like no other television series can deliver.
