We’re just a couple weeks shy of the Season 7 premiere of American Horror Story. Information on Cult has been dripping out slowly since filming began, but most of the pertinent plot and character details have been kept safely under wraps—until now. A European affiliate of FOX (the parent company of FX) Tweeted and then quickly deleted some information that probably wasn’t meant to be revealed at this time—but we got it!
The information specifically relates to Sarah Paulson’s character. All we’d been told so far was that she’s in a romance with Evan Peters’ character, but now we’ve got some really juicy details.
Warning: Below There Be Spoilers!
American Horror Story 7 takes place in the suburbs of contemporary Detroit with Sarah Paulson in the lead as a New Yorker traumatized by the attacks on September 11th. She has raised three freaking phobias [A better translation is probably: “She developed three strange phobias”]; Trypophobia, anxiety for patterns in objects with holes or bumps; Coulrophobia, anxiety for clowns, and hemophobia, and irrational fear of blood.
