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.

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.
