Be afraid, be very afraid. The new American Horror Story: Cult character photos were revealed and we're already having trouble sleeping. 

The dark minds behind AHS have been dropping weekly clues (over various platforms) about the plot of the new season, which will culminate to the show's premiere on September 5. This week Ryan Murphy and co. shared five eerie photos of the show's dark new characters. To view the photos, fans must visit the AHS: Cult website and play an utterly disturbing game with creepy AF clowns, and then unscramble a bizarre message. Ultimately the photos reveal the five new cast members in character, which we've kindly provided for you here so you don't have to play a traumatizing game of click the clowns. You're welcome. *Shudders*
