AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN is literally right around the corner and the PR machine is in high gear. But seriously … who the hell isn’t looking forward to this show!! AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN is of course the third season of the popular creepfest and this season looks as though it’s gonna top the last two seasons. The show premiers on October 9, 2013 on FX, just five short days away. So check out a few new teasers, some new images, and the opening title sequence that’s full of creepy ass images. I went through the entire thing in slow motion. It’s damn good!!
As is the AMERICAN HORROR STORY tradition, the title sequence packs in a boatload of imagery that offers little in the way of explanation but works overtime to creep out the viewer.
Also within the minute-long sequence, we get a gang of woods-dwellers who look like they could be Klansmen, but probably aren’t. (But then again, maybe they are! Executive producer Tim Minear revealed at the Television Critics Assn. press tour this summer that the series shifts through time, and newcomer Kathy Bates plays Madame LaLaurie, a Louisiana socialite who became notorious for the torture and murder of black slaves.) Then there’s a voodoo doll, some type of half-human, half-goat type creature, and what appears to be the results of a super-primitive facial surgery.
Are anyone else’s nipple hard just thinking about this season?!??
Here’s a video I found that compiles all the various teasers that have run for AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN. Even if you’ve seen all the early teasers, watch this video. Some of the ones at the end of the clip are extremely telling and downright scary. I’m getting a SUSPIRIA vibe and a huge voodoo vibe from COVEN. For season two I was patient and recorded the entire season and then watched it all in one looooong night. I don’t think I’m going to be able to hold out for this season!! Check out all the teasers in this video:
Besides the creepy factor, it looks like the writers are amping up the sexiness in this one!! I love Lange’s line to her students:
“You girls need to learn to fight. When witches don’t fight, we burn.”
Tell me your thoughts on this upcoming season. Here’s a new image of a naked black man with a bunch of pins sticking in him. Another voodoo reference?
Now dig on some random stills. What do you think?
