Monsters Among Us – Freak Show Episode 1 – American Horror Story Fan Podcast

Monsters Among Us is the title of the first episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show. The show treats its viewers to all kinds of oddities: a woman with two heads, the bearded lady, the tattooed seal boy, the lobster boy and Elsa Mars, cabaret star. Just don’t call them Freaks! This season starts off with a slow build paying close attention to Else, Dott and Bette and Jimmy Darling while introducing only a handful of the remaining cast. And then there’s Twisty the Clown, quite possibly the most disturbing visual since Pennywise the clown from Stephen King’s It.
