Remember just how icky you felt when Ryan Murphy made us repeatedly stare at teeny-tiny holes during American Horror Story: Cult?
That uncomfortable sensation is rooted in science as some people have trypophobia, a fear of a small cluster of holes or small little bumps. In fact, Sarah Paulson had to face her own fear of holes to play her season seven character, Ally.
Murphy has since managed to keep our hairs raised with creepy themes and scarier phenomena. And season 10 looks like it’ll be no exception. While the storyline behind the next AHS installment has been kept secret, Murphy has teased fans with several images of razor-sharp teeth.
On Wednesday, Nov. 18, he shared a cast update and introduced the latest star tapped for the series: Stephen Novich. Nope, the actor isn’t known quite as well as series regulars like Paulson or Emma Roberts. Instead, Murphy tapped the writer and director because he has a unique title on his resume: contortionist.
Congrats to @SpencerNovich who is joining the cast of this seasons “American Horror Story.” This is the audition that got him the job. Guess the title yet? #AHS10 … pic.twitter.com/JDebkr4rFc

Just last week, Murphy shared the first poster for his AHS spinoff, American Horror Stories, which will feature 16 one-hour episodes that explore entirely different “horror myths, legends and lore.”
Keep the scares coming, Ryan.

Democratic norms are being stress-tested all over the world, and the past few years have thrown up all kinds of questions we didn't know needed clarifying – how long is too long for a parliamentary prorogation?
