You never go full Children of the Corn.

As we inch closer and closer to the American Horror Story Season 6 premiere date, we still have absolutely no idea what to expect from it. FX and creator Ryan Murphy have always preferred to tease us and keep things a bit mysterious, but this season is an entirely different beast altogether. What’s the story? What’s the theme? It’s looking like we won’t know until the night of September 14th.

The various promo teasers that have hit the net in the past few weeks? According to FX CEO John Landgraf, most of them are misdirects, created for the purpose of deepening the mystery and throwing us off the actual trail. But what’s interesting about the teasers, real or not, is that many of them seem to evoke the spirit of classic horror films, namely The Exorcist, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, and Creature from the Black Lagoon.

Could Season 6 have some kind of horror movie theme, or is FX totally just messing with us? It’s impossible to tell, but this latest teaser video certainly continues the trend of paying homage to horror movies from the past. It’s titled “The Lesson,” and it damn sure seems to have been ripped straight out of a Children of the Corn film.

Check out the latest American Horror Story Season 6 teaser below.

Lady Gaga, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, and Cheyenne Jackson have all confirmed their Season 6 involvement. Jessica Lange, however, will not be returning.
