FX is giving “American Horror Story” fans their first real look at the upcoming fifth season of the horror anthology series, subtitled “Hotel.”
In the trailer, cast members Chloe Sevigny, Wes Bentley, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Matt Bomer, Finn Wittrock, Cheyenne Jackson and more are seen stalking the halls, flanked by terrifying, platinum-haired children. It culminates in Lady Gaga and her flowing blonde locks that clearly say, “I’m in charge.”
Creator Ryan Murphy previously told Zap2it that this season is “incredibly terrifying” because it plays on fears that Murphy himself has, like someone hiding until a hotel bed. But he also says “Hotel” is the sexiest season they’ve ever done, so it’s definitely not solely going for scares. Though based on the reports of a dildo-wielding demon lurking about, maybe the sex and horror are entirely intertwined. That sounds like “American Horror Story.”
Fans can also look forward to another rip-roaring Halloween two-parter, this time featuring Lily Rabe as real-life serial killer Aileen Wuornos, which Murphy says is “really fun and bizarre.”
The new season of “AHS” premieres Wednesday, Oct. 7 on FX.
