Watch: The new trailer for ‘American Horror Story: 1984’ tells the story of a killer invading an eighties summer camp

The ninth season of the series premieres on FX on September 18

The new trailer for American Horror Story: 1984 is here, and it sees a group of summer camp counselors confronted with a killer.

The ninth season of Ryan Murphy’s series is an homage to ’80s slasher films like Friday the 13th, and it will star series regulars like Emma Roberts, Billy Lourd, John Carroll Lynch, Leslie Grossman, and Cody Fern as counselors. The group of teens venture into the woodsy camp before they encounter dead bodies on the road, a psychiatric hospital escapee, and, of course, an ominous knife-wielding figure.
