The American Horror Story Theme Gets a Totally Tubular '80s Remix for 1984's Title Sequence

The new theme is campy, bloody fun

Sadie Gennis

The American Horror Story opening theme has gotten a bloody fun '80s remix for the ninth season, 1984. Creator Ryan Murphy shared the title sequence on Instagram Thursday, and now we're never going to get the synthed up earworm out of our heads (not that we're really complaining). And fans have one of their own to thank for the incredible sequence; Murphy revealed in his Instagram post that after seeing a fan-imagined title sequence posted by Corey Vega on Twitter following the title announcement, the megaproducer decided to bring Vega on board to collaborate on 1984's opening.

In addition to giving us a new tune to bop to, the opening credits may also provide viewers a few potential hints at which characters might be falling prey to the Camp Redwood killer sooner rather than later. While the sequence features Emma Roberts, Billie Lourd, Leslie Grossman, Cody Fern, Matthew Morrison, Gus Kenworthy, John Carroll Lynch, Angelica Ross, and Zach Villa as the main cast, DeRon Horton appears to just be a guest star, leading many fans to assume he'll be one of the first to go.
