American Horror Story Season 9 ‘1984’ Pays Homage to Classic Slashers

It's time to revisit those Scream rules for surviving Ryan Murphy's next bloody chapter.


1980’s seem to be the new go to setting for horror movies and television series. AHS Creator Ryan Murphy has continued this fad (which I’m personally a huge fan of) with the tease announcement of American Horror Story: 1984.

Ryan revealed this morning that season 9 of American Horror Story will be called 1984 and appears to be an homage to the slasher movies of that era, like Nightmare On Elm Street, Friday The 13th, etc. Murphy posted the first teaser for AHS: 1984 to his Instagram, which features an anonymous girl being stalked in the woods by a gigantic masked killer with an even bigger knife. ‘Six Feet Under’ from Billie Eilish (who is clearly having her moment right now) is the perfect modern horror soundtrack to accompany this teaser. Watch the preview clip below!



So far, confirmed season 9 cast includes alumni Emma Roberts and Olympian Gus Kenworthy (the pair will play a couple presumably being stalked by this killer with a strange steampunk looking mask). Evan Peters recently revealed that he won’t be back for this particular season. AHS: 1984 will premiere this fall on FX.

Stay tuned to Screamish for AHS: 1984 updates.
