The politics of fear.

Set just after the 2016 U.S. presidential election, American Horror Story: Cult follows a community torn apart by a dangerous cult leader who uses fear as a weapon to gain political power. Cult is the seventh installment of the Emmy® and Golden Globe® winning franchise. 

Local restaurant owner Ally Mayfair-Richards, played by Sarah Paulson, is utterly distraught by Donald Trump’s victory after she voted for a third party. Her emotional state causes her coulrophobia, homophobia, and trypophobia to flare.

Kai Anderson, played by Evan Peters, is a manipulative psychopath who rejoices at the election results and begins his own pursuit of political power by recruiting several people to become members of his cult. His first recruits are his disillusioned sister Winter, played by Billie Lourd, and frustrated newscast reporter Beverly Hope, played by Adina Porter. 

American Horror Story is written by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. American Horror Story is produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television.
