Drawing back the curtains on the captivating world of the ever-enticing American Horror Story’s marketing maneuvers, we are served a thrilling sneak peek into season 12, titled ‘Delicate’. Gracing the screen this time, we find the illustrious reality TV icon, Kim Kardashian, casting an eerie aura in the initial glimpses of ‘Delicate’.
Packed with ambiguity, the teasers of American Horror Story have an unrivaled knack for stirring excitement among its followers. This teaser does not deviate, introducing us to the disconcerting depiction of motherhood portrayed by the star-studded trio: Kim Kardashian, Emma Roberts, and Cara Delevingne. Earlier, fans had only been able to catch hasty snapshots of the actors on set during filming in New York City. Now, we are offered a glimpse of Kardashian donning a blonde wig, a black dress, and cradling a baby, igniting curiosity and speculation.
Delving Deeper into the Mystery
Reverberating an eerie vibe reminiscent of Rosemary’s Baby, the teaser presents a disturbing tableau featuring cryptic images of a cradle and carriage, along with faceless figures moving rhythmically in a circle. These elements serve as a chilling indicator that this season of American Horror Story takes inspiration from Danielle Rollins’s impending novel, ‘Delicate Condition’. Drawing comparisons to a contemporary version of Rosemary’s Baby, the tale delves into the life of a woman who believes an ominous figure is hell-bent on sabotaging her pregnancy.
An Ensemble Cast
In the journey through this labyrinth of mystery, Kim Kardashian is accompanied by a commendable cast of AHS, including the Golden Globe awardee from Pose, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, along with notable actors from Succession’s Annabelle Dexter-Jones, The Good Wife’s Matt Czuchry, NCIS: Hawai’i’s Julie White, and New Amsterdam’s Debra Monk. Denis O’Hare and Zachary Quinto, familiar faces from the AHS franchise, are also making a comeback this season, with Quinto expressing high praise for Kardashian.
A Unique Season
Setting this season apart is its distinctive trait of being the first in the anthology series to adapt a book. Halley Feiffer has brilliantly adapted the novel for AHS: Delicate, spawning a “fun, stylish, and terrifying role”, particularly for Kim, as described by showrunner Ryan Murphy. Echoing Murphy’s words, “Kim is among the world’s most prominent and influential television stars, and we are elated to welcome her to the AHS fraternity.”
Kim Kardashian’s Previous Roles
For Kardashian, this is not her first brush with acting. She has previously graced the screen in 30 Rock, Ocean’s Eight, and Tyler Perry’s Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor.
American Horror Story: Delicate aspires to be audacious and divergent from anything the series has ever undertaken. The series hits Hulu later this year and airs on FX and Disney+ in the UK. Seasons 1-9 are available for purchase on Prime Video.
