Watch New 'American Horror Story: Hotel' Teaser, 'Dropped Call' (Exclusive)
Continuing the American Horror Story tradition of releasing a series of creepy teasers leading up to its premiere, FX has uncovered a new promo for AHS: Hotel that reiterates just how inhospitable this particular hotel of horrors is.
The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively obtained the new teaser, "Dropped Call," which features a maid picking up a bloodied sheet. A phone falls out, showing a failed call to 911. It looks like one of the Hotel guests naively thought there was a way out of this hell.
Hotel will be the fifth chapter of the anthology series created by Glee co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, whose new Fox series, Scream Queens, premieres Tuesday.
Hotel stars Lady Gaga as The Countess, the owner of the hotel; Kathy Bates as Iris, who runs the hotel; Angela Bassett as Ramona, a film star who has a romantic history with The Countess; Finn Wittrock as male model Tristan; Evan Peters as Mr. March; Matt Bomer as Donovan; Wes Bentley as a detective who is investigating a series of murders and staying at the hotel with his wife, played by Chloe Sevigny; and Sarah Paulson as junkie Hypodermic Sally. This will be the first season of AHS that does not feature Jessica Lange.
Scream Queens stars Emma Roberts, Richard T. Jones, Denis O'Hare, Lily Rabe, Cheyenne Jackson, Max Greenfield, Glee's Darren Criss and Mädchen Amick.
Hotel will open for business on Oct. 7 at 10 p.m. on FX. Watch the trailer below to decide if you'll be checking in.
