Speculation about the American Horror Story season 4 theme is heating up, with the frontrunner appearing to be a circus concept.

Numerous posters for "American Horror Story: Circus" have spread through Twitter this week, though most agree that they are probably fake. Among the posters are such classic circus concepts as a girl with multiple legs, a girl with a tail and red and black drapes. Though they are presumably fan-made, the posters suggest that there is a certain demand for the concept, as seen by various fan reactions on Twitter.

There is also a "trailer" for "American Horror Story: Circus," featuring a clown moving mechanically with creepy carousel music in the background. Both the posters and the trailer were released this week, which may just be coincidental.

American Horror Story: Coven Spoilers: Fate of Queenie Officially Revealed 

Enstars previously reported that American Horror Story season 4 might involve a carnival or circus. There have been many clues that seem to indicate the concept, including an extended monologue from Fiona (Jessica Lange) in American Horror Story: Coven about how "life is a carnival." American Horror Story co-creator Ryan Murphy said that they might be filming in Santa Fe, which would be a prime location for a carnival set in the old West.

Naomi Grossman, who portrayed Pepper in American Horror Story: Asylum, previously said that her character was based on a real-life sideshow performer named Schlitzie. Schlitze functioned as one of the stars of the 1930s cult classic Freaks, a movie about circus performers. Grossman said that Freaks is a film that Murphy loves, which seems to further indicate that the circus concept will be used for an upcoming season.
