American Horror Story Season 4: Opening Credits Released; Jessica Lange To Cover A Lana Del Rey Song On Freak Show?

A week before the premiere, creators of "American Horror Story" season 4 revealed a couple of trailers that adden to the suspense of its coming.

While there have been many reports about who the cast of "American Horror Story" season 4 will include, the newly released opening credits show the characters come to life.

The previous trailers for the show were odd and spooky, but Huffington Post reported that the video of the opening credits took a different route and was rather sexually explicit.

The video reportedly showed various characters such as skeletons and creepy clowns that are doing sexual acts.

A first look at some scenes in the show was also revealed and fans can expect "Freak Show" to have its fair share of freakiness and perhaps more.

The video, which premiered on Buzzfeed, showed the freak show owned by Elsa Mars - played by Jessica Lange - and all the interesting characters housed in it.

The one-minute footage opens with the line: "Where are the freaks? I'm getting bored." And is followed by the introduction of some of the characters. Sarah Paulson who plays conjoined twins Bette and Dot Tattler recalls how they got into the show, saying: "It was in the fall when I realized the world I had known was forever doomed. I knew I was about to enter the gates of hell, but, like the inescapable pull of gravity, there was nothing I could do about it."

There were also glimpses of the other characters, including the Pepper, played by Naomi Grossman, who first appeared in "AHS: Asylum" and is the only character to be part of two "AHS" stories.

Evan Peters, who plays Jimmy Darling, delivers all the characters' sentiment, saying: "Don't call us freaks!"

The clip ends with Twisty the Clown, played by John Carroll Lynch.

While a lot of revelations about the cast and the plot had been leaked (both intentionally and unintentionally, as in the case of a supposed leaked call sheet), "American Horror Story" season 4 proves to still carry a lot of surprises.

"American Horror Story" season 4 co-creator Ryan Murphy replied to a tweet by a fan saying that she decided to not watch the latest installment of the series for fear that she won't be able to handle the fright it will induce. Murphy teased the user to watch, saying: "Tina, don't be afraid! The clow is scary, true. But don't you wanna see Jessica Lange sing a Lana Del Rey song?"

"AHS: Freak Show" premieres on October 8 at 10 PM on Fox.
