“American Horror Story: Cult” left me feeling confused, disgusted and wishing for more cults.
The seventh season of the hit show opens with a montage of footage from the 2016 presidential election, the results being announced to the sobs of Sarah Paulson and the elation of Evan Peters.
Peters’ character, Kai, not only humps the TV, but makes a puffy Cheetos paste in a blender and spreads the Cheetos all over his face in an attempt to look like Donald Trump.
Unfortunately, that’s the least disgusting thing Kai does in this episode.
To harass a group of Hispanics, Kai sings “La Cucaracha” (with the Spanish skills of Justin Bieber) while peeing into a condom. He then throws the pee-filled condom at the group of men.
But the escapades of Kai weren’t as important as what was going on with Paulson’s character, Ally.
Upset about the outcome of the election, Ally’s mental state begins to deteriorate. She is extremely afraid of clowns and suffers from trypophobia, the fear of small holes.
Ally begins to see clowns wherever she goes. During one trip to the grocery store, she gets chased through the aisles by knife-wielding clowns. When she escapes and gets into her car, there’s a clown sitting in her back seat (of course). Out of fear, she drives into a light pole.
