This teaser trailer for AMERICAN HORROR STORY: ASYLUM doesn’t make a lick of sense, but it’s fun to watch — and it accomplishes its goal: It makes me want to watch!
Love the way the white nun suddenly looks over at the blue coat, as if she expected it to move, then give us viewers a sidelong glance. But what’s with the black nun facing the wall in the priest hole? Are they in the titular asylum? We’ll have to wait until October to find out what the hell is going on.
Creator Ryan Murphy is about as forthcoming as the clip:
An insane asylum run by Jessica Lange’s character which was formerly a tuberculosis ward – but also signifies a place of haven for the unloved and the unwanted. This year’s theme is about sanity and tackling real life horrors.
The second season on FX is set in 1964 in an insane asylum. It stars returning players Jessica Lange, Zachary Quinto, Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson — but reportedly as different characters — as well as newcomers Lily Rabe, James Cromwell and Joseph Fiennes.
