I like many watched the American Horror Story premiere that was clouded in secrecy last night. The marketing geniuses behind this one have really mastered the art of misdirection. Or have they? Here's my theory about the American Horror Story premiere. They have created the perfect illusion or the perfect scenario where they all are the trailer for this season of American Horror Story. Yes, you heard that right. All of the trailers are the trailer for American Horror Story season 6. This is why! When you tell a story, it's sensational. And it is left up to those who tell the story. We found out that the Amityville Horror Story was not true years after it was told. And the story got bigger and bigger as people told it with more sensational things being told. American Horror Story last night....
Set up a scenario where we have actors telling the story and actors reenacting the story. I got very large overtones of the Amityville Horror documentary that they made a couple of years ago. This is, I believe, the main story even though "My Roanoke Nightmare" has been released as the theme. We saw a lot of the elements from all of the trailers in the American Horror Story marketing. The stairs, the witches, the house, and even the creepy people. We saw all of it and I think it will ultimately be theorized that they are all the trailer. Mainly because if you think about how we tell stories. It's from the point of view of who is telling it. What I LOVE LOVE LOVE about this season is that every one of the people who were telling the story had different perspectives and it seemed as if the story that they were telling was different.
We are normally doing what we do with everything. Looking for one theme of the entire story. What American Horror Story is going to do with us, as it has always done with us, is tell many stories converging together. Sneaky, Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. Very sneaky! If you're a fan of the show, you're going to love this season. If you are one of those who is looking for one thing to give a thumbs up or thumbs down, then you're probably going to be one of those who hates it. Either way! This season is going to be a ride! I'm super excited for it! Yay!
