'American Horror Story: Cult' First Trailer Unleashes Terror Post-Election Night

The next installment of the 'AHS' anthology series will focus on a family who gets terrorized in the aftermath of the election night.
"American Horror Story: Cult" gets first trailer. It shows the aftermath of the election night when Donald Trump wins against Hillary Clinton. There are two groups of people. One that despairs over Clinton's loss and the other who cheers on Trump's victory.

Sarah Paulson's character is among those who are distressed over Trump's imminent presidency. Meanwhile, Evan Peters' character is the opposite. He is wildly happy when the real estate mogul is announced as the winner of the U.S. election. Billie Lourd's character is seemingly on his team.

The trailer also offers a glimpse at the terrifying terror unleashed post-election, focusing on one family with a young boy. "I am not making this up," insists a teary-eyed Paulson's character. Her partner played by Alison Pill looks hopeless as she says, "I don't know how much more this I can take."

The new installment of the "AHS" anthology series will kick off on the election night, "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 terrorized that their lives are going to be taken away."

"I would say honestly that when Ryan had made the announcement originally that the season would deal with Trump," executive producer Alexis Martin Woodall said, "it's more about what's going on in the world around us. We talk about the streak of paranoia, and a lot of it launches from that. It's not what you think it is. As with all good horror and suspense, knowing less is so much more. But it's an element in our launch point."

The show will be back on FX starting September 5. It is also supported by the likes of Emma Roberts, Colton Haynes, Adina Porter, Frances Conroy, Mare Winningham, Leslie Grossman, Billy Eichner and Lena Dunham.
