Ah, 1984: Reaganomics, the Los Angeles Olympics, Ghostbusters, some great music, much awful fashion and, oh yes, slasher films. Some of the above — along with headbanded aerobics, four-wheeled rollerskates, Miami Vice pastels and a Walkman — populate the title sequence for American Horror Story: 1984, which series co-creator Ryan Murphy unveiled on social media today. Check it out below.
Murphy notes in his Instagram post that the sequence comes from “our longtime collaborator Kyle Cooper and our new friend Corey Vega, who ignited this concept with an original ‘fan’ cut he posted on Twitter after the 1984 season was announced.”
