‘American Horror Story: Asylum’ Teasers Have Good Days and Bad
Best we can figure, the meta-purpose of all the recent ‘American Horror Story: Asylum‘ teasers is clearly to drive us into a state of schizophrenia, alternating between the frustratingly vague, to the legitimately worthwhile. Undoubtedly later today will see the release of yet another brief, and nonsensical tease, but for now the recent run of actual character teases helps keep us sane. So, what can we actually learn from the latest?
See? This is how it’s done. We much prefer the ‘American Horror Story‘ teasers that actually feature the characters and provide clues to what we’ll see when the second season of Ryan Murphy’s horror thriller debuts on FX October 17. The latest features the same bed layout as this earlier spot, but offers up a few choice details about each character, for those looking hard enough.
First we see “The Lovers” Leo and Teresa, played by Maroon 5 Frontman Adam Levine and Jenna Dewan, the former brandishing a camera seen in earlier pictures that will no doubt play into his story somehow. Next we see Lily Rabe’s Sister Eunice, surrounded by buckets of body parts and no doubt the one to feed the mutant experiments the “Raspers” out in the woods (note the one under her bed grabbing the bucket). Up third is Evan Peters’ Kit, with scars on his back and apparently being consoled by his wife (‘Skins’ Britne Olford) who was abducted by…well…you’ll see.
Next up is nymphomaniac Shelley, and who doesn’t like Chloe Sevigny in lingerie? Following Kit is Sarah Paulson’s committed journalist Lana, writing on her arm as she’s consoled by her lover (Clea DuVall), while last up is Zachary Quinto’s therapist Dr. Thredson, forcibly holding down a patient. All of this is presided over by the creepy trinity of Monsignor Timothy O’Hara (Joseph Fiennes), Sister Jude (Jessica Lange) and Dr. Arden (James Cromwell) while that unsettling rendition of “Que Sera, Sera” plays in the background.
See? That’s how you tease and creep people out. Check out the spot below, and tell us what you want to see from ‘American Horror Story: Asylum’ in the comments!
