Films like Pet Sematary and Hostel have memorably exploited the horror of the sliced Achilles tendon, which always tends to make for a downright painful-to-watch moment in any movie. The latest poster for FX’s slasher-inspired “American Horror Story: 1984” preys upon that fear, with masked maniac “Mr. Jingles” armed and ready to slice from underneath a bed.
Full disclosure, I have an intense fear of this happening every time I’m standing next to a bed. So thanks for that, Gage Creed. Check out the new “1984” poster art below.
Emma Roberts, Gus Kenworthy, Angelica Ross, Cody Fern and Billie Lourd star. Mitch Pileggi (Shocker, “The X-Files”) is also part of this season’s ensemble cast.
“AHS: 1984” will premiere on Wednesday, September 18.
