'American Horror Story' promo: Fear, lust, and insanity

After several weeks of messing with fans by releasing a series of tiny (and, eventually, maddeningly unsatisfying) promos, American Horror Story has ponied up with some actual footage from the new season!

In the promo below, we’re shown some of the new characters, given a look at some of the sexiness that takes place (though, as of yet, there doesn’t seem to be any naked butts), and, of course, we see a taste of the horror in store. Arguably the scariest part from this clip? The part with the eyelid retractor. Shudder.

Check it out below.


'Breaking Bad' villain joins 'American Horror Story' -- EXCLUSIVE

Ding-ding! An Emmy-nominated villain from Breaking Bad is coming to American Horror Story. Veteran character actor Mark Margolis, who played the stroke-addled wheelchair-bound drug lord Hector “Tio” Salamanca on the AMC drama, has been cast in a recurring role in AHS: Asylum.

In addition to Breaking Bad, Margolis has played memorable characters on projects such as Scarface, HBO’s Oz and The Wrestler. We don’t have many details about his new character on the FX horror drama. Okay, we don’t have any details about his character. He plays a recurring character named Sam Goodwin, that’s all we got. But we do have two other actors who we can also exclusively report are coming on board in guest-star roles: Amy Farrington (Hung, The New Adventures of Old Christine) has been cast as a worried mother on the show and David Chisum (One Life to Live) will play a loving husband.

American Horror Story returns to FX on Oct. 17. And if you didn’t already see it, one of the show’s ads received top marks in our annual Fall TV ads graded gallery.

Was 'American Horror Story' punished for Emmy miniseries bid?


FX’s American Horror Story struck out in the best movie or miniseries category at the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Sunday night. Though American Horror Story co-star Jessica Lange took home an award for best supporting actress in a miniseries, the scary acclaimed drama lost to HBO’s Game Change in the main category. American Horror Story also faced Sherlock (PBS), Hatfields & McCoys (History),  Hemingway & Gellhorn (HBO), Luther (BBC America).

Emmy voters clearly loved the freshman FX program — it was nominated for a whopping 17 nominations overall. But the network endured some criticism and more than a little second guessing after entering the show in the miniseries category rather than go up against shows like AMC’s Mad Men and Showtime’s Homeland in the main drama series category. American Horror Story returns for a second season on Oct. 17, but with a different storyline and new characters (though with some of the same actors). As the Los Angeles Times noted last week, the horror show’s “Emmy tactics have some critics screaming, and not in a good way.” READ FULL STORY

'American Horror Story': Check out two new teasers here -- VIDEO

UPDATE: They’ve added yet another teaser featuring someone in what appears to be a very creepy bath. Check it out below.

Late last week, we got our first look at a teaser for American Horror Story: Asylum, the second installment in Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s horror anthology series. Today brings yet another peek at the highly anticipated series set in an insane asylum run by nun Jessica Lange. The newest teaser is even more vague, showing a white-cloaked nun walking past another nun praying and then hanging up a blue coat. What in the name of Rubber Man does this all mean?!

'American Horror Story': Watch the creepy new teaser for season 2 -- VIDEO

FX’s American Horror Story: Asylum doesn’t begin its terror-filled second season until late October but today the first teaser was released and… it’s really friggin’ creepy. The second season is set in a 1960s insane asylum run by Jessica Lange, but the teaser is scarily simple: A nun deposits a bucket of food near the woods, but something tells us she’s not leaving it for squirrels or some cute elves living in the trees, making cookies. What could she be feeding? What lives in that woods? Watch below… READ FULL STORY

FX president: Damn straight 'American Horror Story' is a miniseries!

Some TV fans have taken shots at FX for submitting American Horror Story to the Emmys as miniseries, where the returning horror thriller will face the likes of History Channel’s Hatfield & McCoys and HBO’s Hemingway & Gellhorn rather than heavy hitting series such as AMC’s Breaking Bad and Mad Men. Just the other day Jimmy Kimmel told TV critics, “It’s not a miniseries — let’s be honest.” And we’ve made remarks too (I believe my exact words were: “Go big or go home, FX; pick on shows your own size.”)

So when a critic at the TCA press tour in Beverly Hills on Saturday half-jokingly asked FX president and general manager John Landgraf if he knew American Horror Story was actually a miniseries when he picked it up, the executive came out swinging. READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Kimmel on Emmys: 'American Horror Story' 'not a miniseries'

FX’s American Horror Story may have been allowed to compete in the miniseries category for this year’s Emmy Awards, but this year’s host Jimmy Kimmel certainly has a clear opinion on the matter. “It’s not a miniseries — let’s be honest,” he told a room of television critics today.

Meanwhile, Bruce Rosenblum, chairman and CEO of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences defended the board’s decision, following creator Ryan Murphy’s appeal to let Horror Story compete as a miniseries. “We have a terrific process to vet these kinds of decisions, and our board of governors believed that the show clearly belonged in the miniseries category,” he said.

The miniseries category, which this year also included Luther and Sherlock: A Scandal in Belgravia, is being monitored “carefully,” Rosenblum later added. “We’ll see how American Horror Story plays out next season, but what was presented to the committee and the board of governors was persuasive enough to have them vote that the show qualified.”

Kimmel quipped: “I’m going to try to qualify as a miniseries next year. It seems like a soft category.”

UPDATE: FX president responds: Damn straight ‘American Horror Story’ is a miniseries!

Season 2 of FX’s American Horror Story begins production this week, but it looks like they are still adding folks to the asylum: EW can exclusively reveal that former All My Children star Mark Consuelos (also the husband of daytime’s Kelly Ripa) is joining AHS as a patient named Spivey.

Consuelos joins Jessica Lange, James Cromwell, Joseph Fiennes, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Zachary Quinto, Adam Levine, Chloe Sevigny, and Lizzie Brochere in the new season, which centers around an institution for the criminally insane.

UPDATE: While Zylka is staying mum on his character’s details, EW has learned that he will in fact be playing a character named Daniel, who is the “Most Beautiful Boy in the World”… and also a deaf-mute.

The Secret Circle may have ended its run on The CW but fans can rejoice that castmember Chris Zylka has found a new TV gig — FX’s thrill ride American Horror Story. The actor told EW last night at The Amazing Spider-Man premiere (Zylka appears in the superhero film as well) that he finally could reveal he had landed the AHS job. “Ryan Murphy, thank God, let me finally announce tonight that I will be a cast member on the second season of American Horror Story,” says Zylka. “It is a thrill, an honor, a challenge. Honestly, it was as big a thrill to book that show as it was to get a part in The Amazing Spider-Man. I cannot believe I will get to be in the same room as Jessica Lange, let alone work with her. I am a lucky, lucky guy. I, of course, cannot tell you who or what I am playing or anything about the story yet. Ryan only gave me the okay to say I was in the show. I’m not going to do anything to jeopardize that.” READ FULL STORY

Academy-Award nominee James Cromwell (Babe) will soon be facing something scarier than a talking pig: EW has confirmed that Cromwell is in negotiations to join the second season of FX’s American Horror Story. The actor will play Dr. Arden, who works at the same institution for the criminally insane run by Jessica Lange’s character.

Cromwell joins Lange, Chloe Sevigny, Adam Levine, Zachary Quinto, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Evan Peters, and Lizzie Brochere in the ensemble for season two of the horror hit, set to premiere in October.
