The Countess and her blood-sucking brood have your room at the Hotel Cortez reserved for ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’ and three new teasers have emerged to hopefully haunt you and get you even more excited for the latest installment of the hit anthology.
The first is entitled ‘Jeepers Creepers’ and you can watch it below:
As you can see, the clip features room 64 which is the room that once belonged to Evan Peters’ character Mr. March, an eccentric millionaire who constructed the Hotel Cortez in the 1930s, which as Peters explains, “He’s designed a hotel to cater to his specific needs, which tend toward the dark evil.” That sounds like it may contain such goodies as secret rooms or passageways.
Fun fact, real-life eccentric millionaire Howard Hughes was a regular fixture at the Chateau Marmont, staying in– you guessed it– room 64, from which he is reported to have spied on women down at the pool.
Peters is known for his striking black-brown eyes, while the peeper spying through the peephole in the clip is blue. Obviously, it isn’t Mr. March peering through. Could it be one of his victims?
Producer and series creator Ryan Murphy posted the following photo on Twitter:

It’s very likely that it is Peter underneath the eerie S&M mask, since having appeared in every season of the series, he certainly qualifies as an “all star.” And the fact that the image is in black and white could indicate that this photo is from a flashback. Since Mr. March’s scenes are set in the ’30s, that certainly makes sense.
As for the next clip, it is entitled ‘Towhead’ a term used to describe those with shockingly white platinum blond hair. The title is certainly apropos once you watch it:
A photo has already been released showing Lady Gaga with three towhead children, who are apparently just three of a small army of such creepy kids. Discussing her ‘children’ on the show, Gaga said “They are the most important thing to her. More than anything, I think she wants to identify in a very human way.”
Frightening blond kids are a fixture in horror, most notably in the 1960s creep-fest ‘Village of the Damned’ not to mention Patty McCormack’s character Rhoda in the 1956 thriller ‘The Bad Seed’. Surely the homage was intentional.
The final clip is the most chilling of all!
If you thought hotel beds were suspect before, this should really push you over the edge:
And you thought bed bugs and semen were the grossest things you might find in a hotel mattress!
Maybe cancel the reservations and take a stay-cation, so you can watch ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’ from the safety of your own home!
‘AHS: Hotel’ arrives on October 7th on FX and also stars Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer, Chloë Sevigny, Denis O’Hare, Cheyenne Jackson, Max Greenfield, Naomi Campbell and Finn Wittrock.
