FX has introduced fans to a number of the ghastly carnival members in the upcoming American Horror Story: Freak Show, debuting Wednesday, October 8 at 10 PM ET with "Monsters Among Us". Today, we have two new trailers that offer a pair of particularly gruesome smiles, both of which may terrify viewers who are afraid of clowns. Take a look at the latest footage, then read on for more details about the Freak Show.

American Horror Story: Freak Show is set in 1950s Juniper, FL, and centers around one of the last remaining freak shows of the time. From bearded ladies to Siamese twins, Freak Show features some of the series' most familiar faces.
