Just when we'd begun to fret that 'American Horror Story: Coven' had lain off its absurd teasers, the latest burns right back into supernaturally spooky silliness. Fresh off of the previous "Staircase" levitation, prepare to meet the the 'Coven' of witches as they burn at the stake! Or do they? Magic!

Becomes nothing says horror like levitation and jerky, unnatural movements, the latest teaser for 'American Horror Story: Coven' proves suitably creepy in showing three sharply-dressed Wiccans being burned at the stake. Or rather, off the stake, as the camera pans to show the three levitating just above the deadly flames, and shifting their menacing gaze to us!

If anything, we might guess that 'Coven's use of witchcraft and magic as a central theme could prove the most CG-heavy heavy yet, as the "Stakes" teaser feels noticably more surreal than even its 'Asylum' predecessors.

Elsewhere, we know that the third season will divide between both present and 1830s New Orleans, and highlight a clash between witches and voodoo. ‘American Horror Story: Coven’ will also welcome newcomers Christine Ebersole, Kathy Bates, Emma Roberts, Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone and Gabourey Sidibe, along with returning franchise regulars Jessica Lange, Denis O’Hare, Alexandra Breckinridge, Lily Rabe, Taissa Farmiga, Frances Conroy, Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters.

The new season of FX's horror thriller will premiere on October 9, so check out the latest 'American Horror Story: Coven' teaser above, and tell us if you think season 3 will outdo the dour scares of last year!
