American Horror Story is definitely creative with each season, each time dealing with a common trope in horror stories and telling it with a bizarre cast of characters.
After the success of American Horror Story Hotel, which featured the talents of Lady Gaga, many have been curious to know what they will set their sights on for season six.
According to a course close to US Magazine, AHS season six will be all about Slender Man. Since some of you may not know who (or what) Slender Man is, let me give you a brief history.
He began as a simple meme on the Something Awful forums, but since then he has spawned countless creepypastas before finally making it big in the indie game Slender: The Eight Pages.
Despite the over-saturation of Slender Man based games that followed, Slender Man is an interesting character with a creepy backstory and appearance. He has a “history” of kidnapping children, as well as causing insanity in people he follows, among other things.
He grew enough in popularity to make it onto Supernatural in season nine, and was blamed for a brutal attack back in 2014.
So, it would fit the American Horror Story mold to take on the Slender Man mythos.
The insider spoke to US Magazine, saying: “Someone else wrote the script, and AHS wants to adapt it to fit the show. They have to buy the rights. Then they’re going to figure out the cast from there.”
So, even if this source is in the right, FX may not be able to get their hands on the rights.
Due to this, the cast for the next season is very much up in the air, but Ryan Murphy is hoping to get Lady Gaga back, plus the usual cast of this hugely successful show.
