Back in September, American Horror Story creator, Ryan Murphy, shared a picture of Twisty the Clown and claimed to have created the most terrifying clown ever.
Take a moment to look him over. He definitely not someone you would want to meet in a dark alleyway. His dirty clothes and his bag of tricks, they add to it. But the part that puts it over the edge is his face. Look at it.
Now if you’ve been watching, you know that Twisty is a kidnapper and a murderer as well. That adds to his creepiness, along with his actions throughout the first few episodes. Episode 4 though, gets us behind the mask so to speak (and episode 2 literally did). I’m shocked though at his death. Twisty was honestly one of the few things I was looking forward to this season. It looks like Dandy is going to carry on his legacy, and while he is a little creepy it’s not the same. Twisty’s backstory added a lot of depth to his character, and made him more interesting.
While he is definitely a terrifying clown, I don’t think Twisty quite lives up to the hype created by Ryan Murphy. What do you think?
