American Horror Story: Freak Show TV billboards...

American Horror Story Freak Show billboard
Not to wish it away prematurely, but the one thing that Daily Billboard will miss when American Horror Story comes to an end is their highly imaginative, disturbing and often provocative imagery the show has used for each season of the successful horror anthology series.

This twisted ad creative for the fourth iteration of American Horror Story, subtitled Freak Show, is no exception.

Often a clown's mouth is used at carnival sideshows for games and entrances to tents, but this demonic gaping mouth looks like it could be the gateway to Hell itself.

This chapter in the series sees many of the show's stars returning in entirely different roles, with recent Emmy-winning Jessica Lange as 'Elsa Mars', the leader of a troupe of curiosities, including Kathy Bates as a bearded lady, Sarah Poulson playing conjoined twins, a three-breasted Angela Bassett, plus more from regulars Frances Conroy, Denis O'Hare, Emma Roberts and Evan Peters, joined by Michael Chiklis as the carnival's strongman.

Set in 1950's Florida this is the story survival for the freakish performers and the local townspeople as a dark entity stirs to threaten all their ways of life.

This latest surreal and scary looking billboard was first spied along the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood on September 15, plus later snapped along Santa Monica Boulevard in Westwood on September 22, 2014.

If you're a fan of the show be sure to take a look at all the previous seasons promo ads, including these season one billboards for American Horror Story, AHS: Asylum billboards and AHS: Coven billboards.

Let's hope this season is suitably different from HBO's very ambitious Great Depression Dust Bowl era show Carniv├ále, which also saw the forces of good and evil, and many shades of grey in-between, intermingle and face off.

Plus if you're afraid of clowns, we have a feeling that 'Twisty the Clown' and this season in particular, will be the most terrifying yet.

UPDATED: Even though the creepy clown mouth creative seems to be this season's central image, that doesn't mean there's not other billboard creatives for Freak Show lining the skies of L.A.

These other disturbing carnival and burlesque themed billboards were spied along the busy Venice Boulevard and Lincoln Boulevard on September 29, 2014.

The dramatic circus tent dress version certainly evokes the big top, whilst the woman with the blurred head conjures images of distorting funhouse mirrors and what's not to like about a three-armed sword-swallowng woman with a tiny corseted waist.

If you like these evocative ads for American Horror Story's new season, be sure to also check out the real-life performers on these AMC Freakshow season two billboards.
