Creator of ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ reveals secrets and details about the upcoming new season.

Creator Ryan Murphy and star John Carroll recently revealed details about the upcoming scene of American Horror Story: Freak Show.

The fourth season of American Horror Story is about to premiere on television and it is argued to be one of the most twisted seasons of the series to date. In a recent interview with Ryan Murphy, the creator behind four seasons of FX’s ‘American Horror Story, AHS: Freak Show will feature “the most terrifying clown of all time.”

“We said in the writer’s room that if we were going to do clowns, we were going to create the most terrifying clown of all time,” Murphy told BuzzFeed News. “That was our goal when we were writing him, but I’m worried about people being too afraid of our clown. It’s heart-stopping what he does. I’m worried. I’m worried that people are going to have cardiac arrests… The clown’s intro in the first episode is … even I was terrified of it. It’s brutal. Two crew members told me they have had nightmares about this clown since we started shooting and they’re not even scared of clowns. I think he’s pretty extraordinary because, when you see why he’s a clown and why he’s wearing the mask … just you wait.” [Buzzfeed]

John Carroll plays Twisty the Clown in what is expected to become one of the most horrifying clowns of all time.

“I have a physical presence that has to be dealt with,” the 6-foot-3 character actor told BuzzFeed News on set. And that impact is only exacerbated by elaborate makeup and costume. “People are honestly terrified of me,” he said with a laugh of how the cast and crew have reacted to him on set. “Just standing around in the makeup, not even filming. They’re freaked out.”

Carroll reveals that he doesn’t really enjoy watching horror movies but, when he got the script for Twisty the Clown, he was immediately drawn to the character. “His actions are horrific, but his motives are really strangely, oddly pure. And that’s what is most human and most disturbing about it,” Lynch said.
