"Here you will repent for your sins to the only judge that matters," Emmy winner Jessica Lange says in the first trailer for the second season of FX's American Horror Story.

Subtitled Asylum, the anthology series this year takes place at Briarcliff, a former East Coast tuberculosis ward turned insane asylum for the criminally insane in the 1960s.

In the first clip features footage from the series and comes after a string of more than 20 cryptic teasers promoting the series from Glee's Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk.

Lange returns in season two to play Sister Jude, the nun who apparently enjoys tormenting Evan Peters' inmate Kit -- as well as Lily Rabe's Sister Eunice in a story of "fear, lust and insanity."

Check out the clip and a behind the scenes look at the series with the cast, both below, and see if you can spot Chloe Sevigny and Joseph Fiennes taking that "lust" theme to the extreme.
