We all know there’s a killer clown on the loose in “American Horror Story’s” upcoming fourth season, subtitled “Freak Show.” Now we have a pair of nightmare-fuel promos called “Twisted Smile” and “Open Wide” to go along with whatever we’ve all been picturing in our heads.

The “Open Wide” one is especially scary for us because all we can think about now is Tim Curry telling us that down here we all float. *shudder*

And in case those two promos aren’t enough, there’s a sword-swallower promo that wouldn’t actually be that disturbing if the sound editors weren’t working overtime to gross us all out.

We can hardly wait for “AHS: Freak Show” to premiere Wednesday, Oct. 8 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX.
