The official AHS: Cult trailer has finally landed and it’s creepy AF

Those of you afraid of killer clowns, creepy babysitters or Donald Trump, please look away now.

The first official trailer for American Horror Story: Cult has landed, and it looks like season seven might just be the most chilling yet.

The scene opens with a screaming Sarah Pauson stood frozen with shock as a television reporter announces that Donald Trump has been elected – confirming rumours that Cult would take on the 2016 presidential election in some shape or form.

Meanwhile, Evan Peter's character, who sports long, unwashed, blue hair, has quite the opposite reaction to Trump's victory.

It is then revealed that Ally (Sarah Paulson) suffers from coulrophobia, otherwise known as a fear of clowns, which may have been exasperated by the results of the election.

She tells her therapist: “Since election night, it has all been getting so much worse.”

Her fear escalates as a clown-loving babysitter who hates children seems to play some part in terrorising the mother-of-one.

According to AHS creator, Ryan Murphy, Cult is “about illuminating and highlighting people who don’t have a voice in our culture — people who are ignored by the current administration and who are afraid and feel terrorised that their lives are going to be taken away.”

American Horror Story: Cult premieres September 5. Take a look at the full clip below:
