‘American Horror Story: Hotel’s First Trailer Takes a Spooky Stroll Through the Cast

The usual round of creeptastic American Horror Story teases had Hotel looking a bit familiar, but does the full cast trailer open new doors on the “reinventions” FX promised us? Gander at Gaga, Bomer, Sarah Paulson and all the rest with our freakiest, showiest look yet at American Horror Story: Hotel.

It’s hard to make anything of the new Horror spot for certain, though we do get good looks at most, if not all of the new and returning cast, drifting through a few timeframes. Of course, with Lady Gaga on board, fashion and design understandably play a huge part, allowing for some of our most intricate (read: completely insane) visuals yet.

Debuting on October 7, so reads the American Horror Story: Hotel premiere synopsis:

“Checking In”

Detective and family man John Lowe investigates a chain of gruesome murders in Los Angeles. A mysterious tip points him to the enigmatic Hotel Cortez.

Written by Ryan Murphy & Brad Falchuk; directed by Ryan Murphy.

Elsewhere, the Hotel cast thus far includes Max Greenfield, Cheyenne Jackson and Lady Gaga, returning Coven alum Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Asylum star Chloe Sevigny, Freak Show guests Finn Wittrock, Matt Bomer and Wes Bentley, and franchise regulars Lily Rabe, Denis O’Hare, Evan Peters and Sara Paulson. FX boss John Landgraf described American Horror Story Season 5 as an “unusually large reinvention” of the series, while Jessica Lange confirmed her exit, but remains open to appearances in future seasons.

Season 5 will premiere on October 7, but what can we make of the latest looks at American Horror Story: Hotel?
