Ready for a not-so-healthy dose of nightmare fuel? FX has you covered with a trio of TV clips for its hotly-anticipated American Horror Story: Hotel, which each peel back the supernatural horrors lurking in the Hotel Cortez in their own unique and terrifying ways.
Entitled Towhead, Jeepers Peepers and Sleepwalk, each snippet is a delightfully creepy peak at the spooks and thrills that await us in FX’s new season. American Horror Story has always nailed its marketing campaign, showcasing twisted and horrific teasers all designed to get under the skin of fans and newcomers alike. Today’s clips are no different, with creepy children and claustrophobic corridors taking the limelight on this occasion.
Co-creator Ryan Murphy returns as showrunner for the fifth season of the award-winning series, and the executive producer recently teased that he wants to push for two seasons of the popular gothic drama in 2016. Such an approach – if it plans out – could make room for American Horror Story fan-favorite Jessica Lange to make a return, given that the actress opted out of Hotel due to her commitment on Broadway play, Long Day’s Journey Into Night.
Season 5, meanwhile, is right around the corner – welp – and Murphy has assembled a truly star-studded affair. Not only is Lady Gaga on board to play The Countess, but Hotel will bring together Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer, Chloë Sevigny, Denis O’Hare, Cheyenne Jackson, Evan Peters and Finn Wittrock.
American Horror Story: Hotel will return for a 13-episode run on October 7. Just in time for Halloween, then.
