American Horror Story: Cult May Be Partially Inspired by the Smiley Face Murders

There are a lot of things that make American Horror Story: Cult scary. We’ve got an ever increasing amount of clowns and the manifestation of another truly disturbing phobia. And, like, people are dying every episode. All of these different variables inevitably snowball together: after all, the cult-like clowns are the ones exploiting the phobias of victims and killing them. But there’s still another aspect of the whole season that’s really, really creepy: the smiley face that’s used to “mark” those who are doomed to die.

American Horror Story: Cult

Ally and Ivy Try to Get Back to Some Normality

After everything, Ally and Ivy attempt to put everything behind them. They and Oz have a night in the restaurant. It all goes well until, in true American Horror Story: Cult fashion, they get home and find a smiley face on their door. If that’s not enough, they get in the house to find Oz’s new pet guinea pignexplode in the microwave.

Ally marches straight over to the neighbors, walks into the house and punches Harrison in the face. When Ally mentions the smiley face, the neighbors tell her that the family has now been marked by the killer. Believing that the neighbors did it, Ally and Ivy walk away, only for Oz to spot a smiley face on the neighbor’s house too.

Just then, the truck returns — and this time, two people get out. Ally rushes towards the people as they

Is There a Killer on the River?

Is There a Killer on the River?

retired Milwaukee
detective investigates ‘Smiley Face’ theory

Wednesday Jul. 12th, 2017

Max Martinson

There’s a lot of strange stuff that happens in rivers. River monsters move silently through the current, herons and eagles keep watch as giant catfish swallow the arms of people who dare to use their fingers as bait, and some people even dare to think that there may be a serial killer prowling the rivers of the Midwest.

Over a few decades, around two dozen young men have gone missing and turned up in rivers in the Upper Midwest – including in Eau Claire.
