After releasing a set of creepy teaser videos, FX has dropped the first trailer for American Horror Story: Hotel, the latest iteration of Ryan Murphy’s twisted AHS anthology series. Unfortunately, the trailer isn’t much longer than the previous teasers, running a brief 30 seconds long. As they do with every season, FX has turned out a clever and stylish promotional campaign that will no doubt have everyone talking. While the season is the first without leading lady Jessica Lange, the regular players in the cast are all mostly returning including Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters and Angela Bassett. Rounding up the main cast is Lady Gaga, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer, Chloë Sevigny, Dennis O’Hare, Cheyenne Jackson, Emma Roberts, Max Greenfield and Finn Wittrock. Ryan Murphy serves as co-creator, showrunner, executive producer, writer, and director and Brad Falchuk is co-creator, executive producer, and writer. The 13-episode American Horror Story: Hotel premieres at 10 PM Wednesday, October 7. PopOptiq is once again covering the series so be sure to come back and check out our reviews here.
