AMERICAN Horror Story is famed for its grisly twists and turns.
The Ryan Murphy anthology series returned last month with its 1984 instalment, which tracked the massacres carried out at Camp Redwood.
The series hasn’t been afraid to play around with time, with counsellor Jonas discovering he has been tethered to the campsite since 1970 after his slaughter at the hands of Margaret.
What’s more, following the murders of Montana, Xavier and the rest of the gang, the show jumped forward in time to show the incarceration of Brooke and Richard Ramirez.
Well, it turns out there’s a whole lot more time jumping on the horizon, following a leak from one of the show’s makeup artists.
The special effects whizz took to her Instagram story to announce that the ninth series had been nominated for Best Prosthetics in a TV Show and Best Period / Character Makeup in a TV Show by Local 709, a guild of makeup artists and hair stylists.
The nomination makes sense, given Xavier’s gruesome burns and Montana’s crimped hair and neon eye shadow, which couldn’t be more quintessentially 80s.
However, in the caption of the post, the MUA, tagged as Carleigh Herbet, announced that the show will also be featuring looks from the 1940s and 2019.
“This season of American Horror Story we took our main cast between the time periods of 1940s, 1970s, early 1980s, late 1980s and 2019,” she wrote.
“We covered multiple social classes and character makeups with ageing, de-ageing, full body tattoo covers, likeness makeups, distressing, death and purgatory looks, blood dressing and more,” she went on.
“Each character consisted of several stages of looks that span over one night, in the first five episodes.
“Techniques used included beauty, corrective, highlight and shadow, facial hair, piercing fillings, out of kit and references to real life people. Mike Mekash was co-head makeup.”
With that in mind, are we likely to see the curse of Camp Redwood extend all the way to the modern day?

Meanwhile the flashback to the 1940s will presumably be some kind of origins story.
The post comes after actress Sarah Paulson teased her return to American Horror Story as a space age vampire.
