The opening credits for the previous 2 seasons of of FX's American Horror Story were fun. A sufficiently creepy collage of both still and moving images, with an eerie musical overlay and sound effects. Via Twitter earlier today, show co-creator Ryan Murphy shared what will be the opening credits for the series' upcoming third season, adding that the sequence includes clues to how the new season's narrative will progress. See if you can spot them.Although names noticeably absent from the opening credit sequence are Angela Bassett and Gabourey Sidibe. I expected to, at least, see Bassett's name, given that she's one of the leads this season. I suppose she'll likely receive something like a "special guest star" credit.Expectations are even higher for American Horror Story: Coven, which will explore "themes of race and oppression and family — especially mothers and daughters — along with laughs and scares and a few tears," as executive producer Tim Minear puts it.Here's a breakdown if you missed it previously:
