The ninth season of American Horror Story is taking us back in time to the halcyon days of 1984 – and sending us off to summer camp.

Forget your usual horror locations, as explored well throughout the series, for this time proceedings are set by a lake where there are many cabins in the woods… Oh. But the trailer is all happy campers – save for that goth with the knife, what’s their deal?

While Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters are sitting this series out – although don’t rule out cameos – previous alumni Emma Roberts, Billie Lourd, Cody Fern, John Carroll Lynch, Leslie Grossman and Matthew Morrison are all signed up for camp.

Seemingly riddled with references to classic horror flicks, American Horror Story: 1984 releases September 18 in the US.

Here’s a quick teaser:
