"American Horror Story: Cult" Just Released The Opening Titles And They Are Just As Political As Promised

Because everyone wants to re-live the 2016 Election.

Posted on

After promising fans the main title sequence last week via Twitter, Ryan Murphy is a man of his word.

Because you asked for it..."American Horror Story: Cult" MAIN TITLE SEQUENCE will be released on MONDAY.

Today the official American Horror Story account tweeted out the titles and...they're just a creepy as one would expect.

Watch it begin. Witness the opening credits for #AHSCult.

The titles include all kinds of weird (possible easter egg) imagery.

Like this freaky little angel.

And this clown in a coffin.

And, of course, there are more clowns and bees*.

* But RT the only thing scary here is the fact that we actually do NEED more bees.

Still, when it was revealed that Murphy planned this season around the now infamous 2016 Election, fans wondered just how much of the real-life election would be used.

Now it appears that, at least in the titles, there will be direct references to the election, as they featured images of a shadowy person wearing a Trump mask.

And (what appears to be) a clown wearing a Hillary Clinton mask.

And fans definitely let their feelings fly.

@AHSFX IT'S FUCKING LIT THIS LOOKS LIKE THE PURGE ON COCAINE #AHSCULT 🔥🔥🔥

@saraysays @AHSFX @MrRPMurphy IM SO SHOOK😭😭

@AHSFX THIS SEASON BETTER BE GOOD

Others were less concerned with the politics, and more concerned with the shortness of the credits themselves.

@AHSFX Only 4 actors in the opening credits?

@AHSFX I WANT THE "WITH"/"AND" NOW

Either way, we won't know for sure what TF is up until American Horror Story: Cult premieres Sept. 5th, 2017.
