On Nov. 10, Murphy shared the new poster for Season 10, which consisted of a personality with a painted-white face, blood-red lips, and pointed enamel. A teal-gloved hand is tattooing their tongue with, “AHS 10” and the placement of the tweet is Provincetown, MA.

Initially, some thought it seemed method too acquainted to Freak Show and Hotel’s promo materials, presumably hinting at one other crossover season. But Murphy, himself, commented on Instagram that it’s not a crossover like Apocalypse

The final promotional trace Murphy gave followers was in February, earlier than the pandemic and presumably proper earlier than taking pictures was supposed to really begin. It was an inventory of forged members for the season. The video listed out the names in entrance of a dark seaside, very a lot becoming with the Cape Cod vibe of Provincetown, MA.  

An unsolved thriller is related to Provincetown and ‘Jaws’

Back when Murphy shared that unique video, Reddit customers’ brains’ began working time beyond regulation and so they pulled up a BuzzFeed Unsolved video, of all issues, that coated a case that really related to the placement. At the time, it was solely hypothesis that the dunes close to Provincetown can be the place Season 10 would happen. And the consumer hypothesized that the Lady of the Dunes may play an element in Season 10.

The BuzzFeed Unsolved episode coated the Lady of the Dunes, which basically is the real-life case of an unnamed physique discovered within the city in 1974. She was discovered by a 12-year-old lady roughly 10 days to three weeks after her loss of life. She was nude, with some clothes folded beneath her head. The attention-grabbing factor is that she had dental work performed, however authorities weren’t in a position to establish her. 

A “breakthrough” within the case was in a now-deleted 2015 Tumblr post by Joe Hill, author and son of Stephen King. He detailed recognizing the Lady of the Dunes — or what they thought the composite picture of her residing self would seem like — within the film Jaws. He later talked about it with USA Today, declaring that the Steven Spielberg film was filmed in Martha’s Vineyard not removed from Cape Cod and Provincetown across the time she died.  

“She swims at you out of the crowd, you’d hardly notice her if you watched it on a TV but it’s different if all the actors are 10 feet high,” Hill stated. The idea right here is that the Lady of the Dunes was an additional within the film and so they simply didn’t maintain good information on the time, explaining why we nonetheless don’t know who she is. For some purpose, she was murdered, someway ending up in Provincetown. 

Many assume mermaids or cryptids of some type will make an look this season 

The Reddit post hypothesized that the season may, or would possibly, function the Lady of the Dunes ultimately. And in the event that they did, it could be very very similar to Murphy to attach it again to Hollywood legend in a method by together with Jaws

With that stated, sea creatures appear to even be a serious idea for this season. With these razor-sharp enamel within the poster, a Jaws connection — if just for a second — may additionally result in mermaids. Or a creepy, supernaturally-large shark?

Ever since Murphy posted water-focused hints, followers have latched onto mermaid or siren guesses. Very early on, cryptids — or creatures whose existence hasn’t been confirmed or disproven but — just like the Loch Ness Monster have been within the combine, though Nessie wouldn’t have been an possibility, since she’s in Scotland and that is American Horror Story

Whatever it’s, odds are, some kind of sea creature should do with the horror that awaits this coastal city. The forged additionally welcomes again Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters this season, after they each took a season off for the primary time in 1984.
