This Season of American Horror Story Is Already Going All In on the Horror Movie References
The premiere of American Horror Story: 1984 was full of references to classic horror and slasher movies of the 1970s and '80s. In some ways, that's really not surprising at all. As the ninth season of the hit horror anthology kicks off, it's pretty clear that this season's theme is an homage to the classic slasher flicks of the era, with the tropes coming fast and furious during just the first episode alone. We've got everything: a creepy isolated camp with a past, not one but two serial killers, good-looking young people getting murdered or at least stalked, and the expected dose of horrifying violence.
