We're going to go out on a limb and say that Ryan Murphy is playing with our emotions.
According to Nylon, the newest American Horror Story teasers were released on Lady Gaga's Snapchat last night, and people have a lot of questions. Watch first, then we will deliberate:

September 14, something wicked this way comes. Now, let's break this down:
- First off - you hear chainsaws. Is this a Texas Chainsaw Massacre themed series? A-middle-of-nowhere type Murder House? A theme of urban legends, perhaps?
- It had been rumored that this new installment of AHS was going to surround the baby of Tate Langdon and Vivien Harmon from Season 1's Murder House. You know, you remember, the baby that had that Anti-Christ vibe that killed his nanny at the end? Yeah, that one.
- We're not sure about the hands grabbing the ankles, but anyone who's ever been in a creepy house before knows how scary it is to go down into the basement with no lights on. I don't know about you, but I was always afraid of that.
- Another rumor that has been circulating for a while is that Ryan was going to touch on the Slender Man conspiracy, which started as a fictional story in a forum that turned into an obsession by internet culture - causing even an almost fatal stabbing in Wisconsin by two 14 year old girls, who were trying to impress the fictional character, which would also lead us to believe with the chainsaws that this is totally an Urban Legend themed season.
Now, all of those ideas are doable, but the question bares this - do they all work together, or is Murphy messing with us and these images have NOTHING to do with what he's planning?
Guess we'll have to wait till September to find out.
