Is there anything more American than a summer camp?

Probably, but from the top of my head I can’t think of one of any examples.

I suppose the Super Bowl, whatever that is? That and the ironically named World Series; they’re both quite American establishments.

I’ve gone down a rabbit hole here that I had no intention of venturing into. What I’m getting at, believe it or not, is that there’s a new series of American Horror Story coming out.

By this point they really should have called it American Horror Stories. That would make far more sense.

Digressing again. Look at me go.

The new season of American Horror Story (plural) is set in a summer camp. Something I feel justifies the whole “American” part of the Horror Stories.

Well, it certainly looks like it is. Nothing’s set in stone yet.

AHS SEASON 9 is called…

A post shared by Ryan Murphy (@mrrpmurphy) on

Series auteur Ryan Murphy shared a video to Instagram which gave us both the name and a small look of season nine of American Horror Story. Called 1984, we see a – presumably – ill-fated young woman being chased through a wooded area by a masked chap dressed like he’s at a Marilyn Manson gig.

She makes it to a secluded cabin and slams the door behind her, leaning on it as she collects herself. Obviously, though, slashers don’t fear doors, as the man(?) plunges his(knife) straight through it. We then see the title card saying “1984”.

Moral of the story? Once you’ve evaded a killer, don’t lean on the door you’ve slammed shut to get away from them. Their first move will probably be to attack the door.

Also you can watch it in Autumn. That’s the other moral.
