With less than two months until the doors are opened at Hotel Cortez, we have been treated to our first proper look at American Horror Story: Hotel, and safe to say I wouldn’t be rushing to book a stay there.
Entertainment Weekly have shared the first teaser trailers for the fifth season of the FX horror series, and if a good night’s sleep is what you are looking for then look away now.
The first teaser entitled “Do Not Disturb” shows us the hellish vision of an eyeless guest tormenting the residents of the hotel. Maybe he has simply locked himself out of his room and wants a place to sleep; well let’s just say I wouldn’t be inviting him in.
The second ghoulish teaser “Beauty Rest” shows us a gloved hand (which may or may not belong to one Lady Gaga) trying to strangle an unknown individual. Not sure service like that would bump the Hotel Cortez up the Trip Advisor ratings, but it definitely gives the feeling that we are in for a heart stopping stay when the series premieres on October 7.
In other American Horror Story news, we have news of yet another returning cast member for the new series. Mare Winningham, who previously starred in Coven as Evan Peters’ mother, and played Pepper’s alcoholic sister in last season’s Freakshow, will be playing a staff member at the Hotel. According to Entertainment Weekly, Winningham’s character will be in charge of the hotel’s laundry and will be working closely with Mr March, played by Evan Peters.
This upcoming season of the FX drama is definitely jam packed full of cast members, and with the sheer number of returning cast such as Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, and Finn Wittrock it speaks volumes of the strength of the series in general and particularly this upcoming season.
I for one can’t wait for American Horror Story: Hotel to premiere on October 7 on FX.
