If the current political climate isn't giving you nightmares, here's something else to keep you up at night.
Ryan Murphy teased the upcoming seventh season of "American Horror Story" Friday on Instagram, sharing a a terrifying drawing of some sort of red-lipped elephant monster.
Considering the season will kick off on election night, one can only assume there's a Republican connection to the completely creepy imagery. Given the show's past with masked murderers like Rubber Man, Bloody Face and Twisty the Clown, this might just be Season 7's Big Bad.
While both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will appear on the show, they won't be the focal point.
"I think people literally think Sarah Paulson is playing Hillary Clinton," Murphy told E! News, "and I wanted to clarify that that is not true. Horror Story is always about allegory, so the election is allegory. It's our jumping off point. It is about the election we just went through and what happened on that night and the fallout of that night, which to many people, from all sides of the camps is a horror story. And you know, that show is always so fun when it's about the zeitgeist and what we're doing now."
"The first 10 minutes of the season, this season, takes place in a very eerie macabre way on election night and there's something terrible that happens in the lives of our characters on election night as they're watching it all go down," he added.
He also told Andy Cohen the season would "be going back to some 'Freak Show' characters, deeper histories and mythologies. So we're still sort of exploring season 4 in season 7." It's unclear how the 'Freak Show' characters from the '50s will tie in to the modern day setting.
Both Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters will also be returning, while Billy Eichner has been cast in a recurring role. Deadline reports that Eichner will play a close confidant of Paulson's character who will "mostly be wearing mysterious tank tops."
Billie Lourd, who previously appeared on Murphy's "Scream Queens," will also appear.
