American Horror Story: Cult just topped its creepy credit sequence with a one heck of a trailer released on ahscult.com.

The trailer, which had an opening with Billie Lourd in character telling viewers she can take their fear, kicks off Michigan in 2016. Donald Trump has just been elected president and the news prompts a bloodcurdling scream from Sarah Paulson's character, Ally, and makes Evan Peters' character, Kai, let out a heavy metal yell…and hump the TV.

"Since election night it has just been getting so much worse," Paulson's character tells Cheyenne Jackon's, a doctor, about her fear of clowns.

She's seeing them everywhere and it's bugging her out—naturally. Wouldn't murderous clowns scare you?

"I don't know how much more this I can take," Alison Pill's character, wife to Paulson's, says.

And that's where Lourd and Peters' characters come in. They're obviously involved the fear-based cult.

"What fills your heart with dread?" Peters' character says.

"Children," Lourd's responds…and then viewers find out she's the nanny to Paulson and Pill's son! And she's introducing toys of Twisty the Clown from American Horror Story: Freak Show into their household.

AHS: Cult also stars Billy Eichner, Adina Porter, Colton Haynes, Leslie Grossman, Lena Dunham, Frances Conroy and Mare Winningham.

Ryan Murphy previously teased a "love story for the ages" was going to happen between Paulson's character and Peters', which is surprising based on the info available and the trailer.

"I think it's going to reveal itself in surprising ways," Paulson teased at the 2017 TCA summer press tour.
