American Horror Story definitely made up for their missteps in Coven with last year’s Freak Show. Last season’s entry brought the series back to its roots by combining the supernatural with the psychotic, and the results were appropriately terrifying. Seriously, Twisty the Clown could give Pennywise a run for his money. This year’s installment, Hotel, is already being held in as high regard as the first season by those in the know, and the FX show just unleashed the opening title sequence for the highly anticipated new chapter. Take a gander below.
While Freak Show’s opening sequence played out like a perfectly twisted Tool video from the early 90’s, to great effect, the Hotel sequence has gone down a more real, yet terrifying, path. The minute-plus opening seems to promise blood, sex, violence, and hauntings that will leave viewers checking beneath their bed before settling in for a night’s rest. In other words, it seems like the new chapter may live up to the hype.
The FX series, which will bring back Angela Basset, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Sarah Paylson, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer, and Lily Rabe, to name a few, and will also star Lady Gaga, Chloe Sevigny, and Naomi Campbell, premiers October 7.
