The Thrilling Premiere of “American Horror Story: 1984”

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Akron chapter.

Hello to all my fellow American Horror Story lovers! As you all know, the newest season of American Horror Story just premiered Wednesday, Sept. 18 with the promise of fear, drama, gore, and even love, we had great expectations for it. This AHS slasher is about a camp that was closed down due to a massacre of campers, but reopens despite its gruesome past! Now if that does not get you excited, I don’t know what does.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I was also a little skeptical to find out that Evan Peters and other OG cast members were not coming back for season 9, but I think the cast that we have now is still going to succeed!

The first episode seemed to hide a few easter eggs referring to previous seasons, which we all know AHS is known for doing. So far there have been a few that appear to point  to Roanoke and possibly Asylum. Viewers did not get much information for this upcoming season in this first episode, so I am excited to watch in the following weeks to get more of the details! All I know is that American Horror Story plus an 80’s themed summer camp SCREAMS food TV.
