The hit horror anthology American Horror Story returns for a fifth season next month, and now we finally have a look at the weird and creepy cast.
FX has released a new, 30-second trailer that essentially functions as a walk-through of the titular Hotel, giving us a peek at the bizarre tenants inside. As you’ll no doubt notice, the all-star cast of Lady Gaga, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer, Chloë Sevigny, Denis O’Hare, Cheyenne Jackson, Evan Peters and Finn Wittrock are all looking as strange as you’d expect from Ryan Murphy’s hit horror series.
Little is known about the exact plot (shocker, right?) aside from the fact that it will tell intersecting stories at what is almost guaranteed to be the scariest hotel ever conceived. The trailer takes us through some Shining-esque hallways, bookended by creepy visuals that evoke everything from 1960s pop art to 1920s throwback horror films. There are also some of the quick-flash freaky shots the series is well known for using.
