On Wednesday, October 7th, FX  will premier their creepy, 13-episode series American Horror Story: HotelThe first trailer landed today and is called “Hallways.”  It gives us our first look at the fifth installment in the American Horror Story franchise and it’s pretty insane.  From a blood thirsty Lady Gaga to pale, creepy, white-haired kids running amok in the halls, this one looks like we’ll be watching it with the lights on.

Screen Shot 2015-09-10 at 3.55.04 PM“The upcoming season that we’re doing is much more horror-based; it’s much more dark. It’s about a theme and an idea that’s very close to my heart that I’ve always wanted to do that’s a little bloodier and grislier I think than anything that we’ve done before; it’s straight horror this year.”

Screen Shot 2015-09-10 at 3.49.59 PM“It’s based in the hotel in horror movies and horror tropes. We’ve researched several real-live hotels in downtown LA where absolutely horrifying things happened. Murder House I thought was a very primal season because everybody’s great fear is about the bogeyman under the bed in their house, and this feels similar to me in that when you check into a hotel, there are certain things beyond your control. Other people have the keys to your room; they can come in there. You’re not exactly safe, it’s a very unsettling idea.” – Ryan Murphy via DEADLINE
