What is the New World Airport Commission and what does it have to do with a time capsule buried at DIA?
On the way to the gate, passengers can encounter baggage claim gargoyles, Masonic markings, the anatomically correct statute of what appears to be a possessed mustang and Leo Tanguma’s ominously psycadelic and symbol-filled murals.
Conspiracy theorists have taken note of these odd additions to DIA and have concluded that this locale’s connections to the Illuminati, New World Order, Neo-Nazis and Reptoids are irrefutable.
Few people have heard of the New World Air Commission. But the organization’s name can be found on the capstone of a time capsule buried at the airport.
While many places associated with the paranormal and the terrifying have dark, haunted histories, DIA’s scary story looks towards the the future to forecast an entirely reformed societal structure in a post-apocalyptic world. Unlike previous seasons of "American Horror Story," the unknown of the future would provide a new terrifying angle for the show’s writers.
With the return of FX’s "American Horror Story: Coven" from winter hiatus, we examine the possibilities for a Denver-based season of the series.
