American Horror Stories Trailer Reveals Danny Trejo As Killer Santa And More

The anthology series looks like it'll have a lot of scares.


The first trailer for FX's American Horror Stories, an anthology spin-off of the main show, has been released. As announced previously, the anthology series focuses on a different "horror story" each week, and if the trailer is anything to go on, there are some big scares coming.

One of the episodes will apparently focus on a murderous Santa Claus played by Danny Trejo, while another sequence shows someone wearing a pig head and brandishing a cleaver emerging from behind a shower curtain. You know, the stuff of nightmares, basically. Here's the trailer:

American Horror Stories launches on July 15 through FX on Hulu with two episodes, which will air back-to-back. The show features Matt Bomer, Evan Peters, Billie Lourd, Paris Jackson, and Taissa Farmiga, among others.

Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, the creators of American Horror Story, are executive producers on American Horror Stories.

As for the main American Horror Story series, it was renewed in 2020 for an additional four seasons of nightmare-inducing episodes.
