.v0ldiemort : (06 July 2015 - 10:44 AM) UGH!! I knew it! I told my friend that it was going to be another AHS fake, The Fallen Angel trailer was better than the whole Freakshow teaser
our sea star : (06 July 2015 - 10:44 AM) if it really is fake, netflix needs to step up its game. this is the exact tone they should be striving for in the actual series :P
our sea star : (06 July 2015 - 10:43 AM) yeah, i read that it was done by the same person who did a fake teaser for american horror story. the production values are INSANE, though.
