Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton both 'star' in AHS: Cult

Edited by: Yara Sameh

It may be AHS's most horrific setting yet: Election night، daily mail reported.

The title sequence for the latest season Cult was been unveiled on Monday.

The unnerving clip 'stars' both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton — or at least people wearing caricature masks of the political opponents.

There are other less-than-subtle allegory's to the current political climate، including a blood-soaked US flag being wrung out and scrubbed in a sink.

Following on from the hive themed posters previously released، there is plenty of unsettling bee imagery in the one-minute opening credits.

One grotesque moment shows a woman's back and shoulders pockmarked with holes، and insects scurry in and out of them.

In a possible nod the the rebooted Stephen King's IT، a coffin carried onto a darkened hill opens to reveal a terrifying clown، holding a red balloon.

A butcher is shown wiping a bloodied cleaver on his apron، while another person dressed in a gas-mask holds the copse of a dog in front of a merry-go-round.

Cult will be the seventh season of the anthology series، created by Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy.

Murphy revealed earlier this year that the 'jumping off point' in the latest storyline will begin on the evening of November 8، 2016، when now-President Donald Trump shocked the world in his surprise win over Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.


'The season we begin shooting in June is going to be about the election that we just went through،' he said. 'So I think that will be interesting for a lot of people.

'Horror Story is always about allegory، so the election is allegory. It is about the election we just went through and what happened on that night and the fallout of that night، which to many people، from all sides of the camps is a horror story.'

AHS staples Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters will star again; joined by newcomers Billie Lourd، Alison Pill and Billy Eichner.

Last month it was also revealed that Girls star Lena Dunham، 31، would make a guest appearance in one of the pending episodes.

AHS Cult premiers of FX on September 5.
