American Horror Story: Asylum Poster and Clip

If you’re already dealing with a 1960s insane asylum run by an evil nun, probably about the last thing you need is a serial killer called Bloody Face who likes to wear masks made from the skin of his victims and a black nightie accessorized with opera-length gloves.

But that’s what’s happening in the second season of AMERICAN HORROR STORY, in the arc called ASYLUM. And I haven’t even mentioned the Nazis… or the aliens.

The cast includes Jessica LangeZachary Quinto, Sarah Paulson, Jenna Dewan, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, James Cromwell, Adam Levine and Joseph Fiennes. And, this just in, Frances Conroy will be appearing, according to the Twitter account of creator Ryan Murphy:

Thrilled to announce Emmy nominee Frances Conroy is returning to AHS. Devils and angels this year…Frannie plays the ultimate angel

Meanwhile, FX has released the appropriately strange poster seen here, and the bizarre teasers continue apace. It’s tough to keep up, but I’ll share one that I particularly like: “Hellevator”
