What You Might Have Missed: AHS: Cult Teaser 2 & 3

It is important to me to provide comprehensive content warnings, but you should always trust yourself when deciding whether or not to watch. The horror genre is meant to push you to the edge of your comfort zone, and that is one of the reasons why I love the genre so much. You can always expect frightening imagery, loud noises, scenes of intense peril, and gore even in the smallest amounts. If you have any questions, I am always happy to discuss.

Ah! The annual releasing of the AHS teasers continues. This time we got two at once! I only spotted one hidden(ish) image in the walls teaser, so I’ll just go through what happens in each.

Bubble Bath Teaser-

This one made me giggle at first because I said the clowns looked parched in the first teaser. Well, now we got one that is definitely not parched.

I don’t think that is water.

We open on a mysterious bubbly liquid. To me it looks like just brewed coffee that gets a little bubbly after it stops percolating. There is a reddish shape in the upper left, no idea what that is about. Eye sockets and nose is clearly visible in the bubbles.

The hottest new trend, hot coffee masks.

Slowly rising out of the bubbles is a face with clown makeup. That goes with the first teaser that was full of clowns. To me, the face appears to have feminine features. But just from the teaser, that information isn’t provided.

You should get that checked out.

Unidentified face opens eyes and mouth to reveal… NOTHING! No, literally.. nothing. No eyes, no teeth… It is like the face is actually just a mask. A clown mask!!! DUN DUN DUN. SO CLEVER. MUCH INNOVATIVE. (can you smell the sarcasm?)

They didn’t take their allergy medicine

Then some spooky noises and flashing happens and AH! EYES! TEETH! WHAT! Those are some really bloodshot eyes, I think there is medicine for that. Also, did they eat some cherry candy or something…. I don’t think tongues are meant to be that bright…

Nothing to see here

And then we get the flashy fade to title and release date. Well, ok. That sure was a thing. I didn’t spot any hidden images doing a frame by frame. Did you see anything?

Walls Teaser-

I spotted just one sneaky image in this one. This one has lots of light leaks and blurry movements, so the screen caps aren’t as clear as usual.

Hello? Hello? Hello?
Is there anybody in there?

Woman (assumed from clothing and facial features) walking down a hall. OK. Her arms cannot just hold still. She must’ve drank some of the coffee from the bubble bath teaser. Something about her hair makes it look super fake to me. I don’t know if it is fake or not, but it looks like it.

Just nod if you can hear me
Is there anyone at home?

At times you can see a face superimposed over her face. It is usually super orange tinted. It doesn’t move, and I can’t tell if it is her face or someone else. But, it is there. The lights come up on either side of her and she is in the Honeycomb Hideout.

Come on now
I hear you’re feeling down

She continues to catwalk around in the Honeycomb Hideout and some of her fans come out to give her a high five. She is however horrified at the thought of being touched by peasants. I mean… really. Peasants.

Well I can ease your pain
Get you on your feet again

The image starts to do this weird thing where you are seeing double and there are more light leaks. Lots more hands trying to get friendly with our lady in the hall. Her hair still looks fake to me. Her shirt has potential, although red and black stripes aren’t really in season.

Relax
I’ll need some information first

The Honeycomb Hideout gets a lot brighter. Maybe it is a tanning salon… and she can’t find the dressing room? I’m not sure. She continues to stumble down the hallway.

Just the basic facts
Can you show me where it hurts?

I’m including a lot more screen caps than usual for this one. Why is this lady in the hallway? Is she the hall monitor? Why are the hands grabbing her? Why are they all white? Her expression in the last one kills me. She is not having a good time.  Did she smell something bad? No idea.

There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship smoke on the horizon

Lady throws up her hand and she has a honeycomb shape on her palm. It lights up a little. One of the hands grabs her and there is one that looks like it is about to snatch her wig. And then we get the title and release date.

Whelp. That sure was some stuff. OH! There was a poster release too.

Feels like my head is buzzing.

Got her mind on her honey and her honey on her mind.

So, what were your thoughts? Did you spot anything I missed? Does this make things any clearer for you, or is it more random noise? How many more teasers do you think we’ll be getting?
