This is what Ryan Murphy of AHS reveals on Twisty the clown:
“[…] It’s heart-stopping what he does. I’m worried. I’m worried that people are going to have cardiac arrests… The clown’s intro in the first episode is … even I was terrified of it. It’s brutal. Two crew members told me they have had nightmares about this clown since we started shooting and they’re not even scared of clowns. I think he’s pretty extraordinary because, when you see why he’s a clown and why he’s wearing the mask … just you wait.”
John Caroll Lynch (who plays Twisty) adds:
“His actions are horrific, but his motives are really strangely, oddly pure. And that’s what is most human and most disturbing about it.”
I’m srsly wondering if anybody else is as ridiculously excited as I am.
