American Horror Story: 1984

Ryan Murphy has shared the opening title sequence for ‘American Horror Story: 1984’, his latest entry in the popular anthology franchise.  The new series is set at Camp Redwood, where a group of aerobics-loving teens has taken on summer jobs as counselors.  Like ‘Stranger Things 3’, ‘AHS: 1984’ is milking the neon ’80s aesthetic for all its worth.

The cast of the new season is Cody Fern, Leslie Grossman, DeRon Horton, Gus KenworthyBillie LourdJohn Carroll LynchMatthew Morrison, Emma Roberts, Angelica Ross, and Zach Villa.

What’s particularly cool (or gnarley) about the new title sequence is that it was partially made by a fan, Corey Vega.  As Murphy explains, Vega posted a “fan” montage video after learning the theme of the new season of ‘AHS’ and Murphy liked it so much, he hired him to create the real thing!

The new intro features a synthesized version of the show’s theme song, with static-y VHS-quality clips of aerobics instructors, muscle cars, video game graphics, antiquated tech, break-dancers, and Ronald Reagan.  Oh and blood.  Lots of blood splattering and oozing all over the retro iconography.

Check out the new opening credits sequence below.  Just a note, it is in two parts, so click the little arrow on the right to see the very end of the video.

What do you think?  Does the new fan/pro-made intro make you more excited for the return of ‘AHS’?
