Three New 'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Teasers Are Legitimately Terrifying

The previous teasers for "American Horror Story: Freak Show" have all been equally creepy and unnerving. But the newest ones released by FX are actually incredibly terrifying.

The more mild of the three features a sword swallower shoving a giant blade down his throat (ouch). Yet the other two "Freak Show" promos show maybe the scariest clown you have ever seen in your life (we're not kidding) and another freaky clown-like figure with a disturbing nightmare-inducing smile. We took Ryan Murphy seriously when he said this new season was going to be "terrifyingly dark," but damn, maybe we should've taken him even more seriously.

Check out the new trailers below and start getting friends together to watch "Freak Show" with -- because you won't want to do it alone.

"American Horror Story: Freak Show" premieres on Oct. 8 on FX.
