Hey, you weren't planning on sleeping tonight or anything, were you? Cause if you were, I would have to caution you against watching this trailer for American Horror Story: Asylum. Unless, of course, things like shadowy institutions for the criminally insane run by sadistic clergy members who seem more concerned with harvesting buckets of some sort of gore to feed some sort of beast that lives in the surrounding woods than anything else don't give you the heebie-jeebies.
That's right, the 2nd season of American Horror Story sounds like it's shaping up to be even more disturbing than the first, with all new characters in an all new setting plagued by all new supernatural bad'uns, including ... maybe ... aliens?!
Not to mention ... Nazis?!
Makes perfect sense, the way co-creator Ryan Murphy puts it:
"I'm just writing what I would like to see. I'm scared of aliens and I'm scared of Nazis and I'm scared of nuns. So it's the perfect stew of horror and fear."
Yikes. From the looks of Jessica Lange's Sister Jude, Murphy must have been smacked on the knuckles with quite a few rulers as a kid! Talk about a holy terror. Or maybe she's an alien in disguise. Or a Nazi. Or a Nazi alien! Yikes.
Oh, and did I mention this season will also feature a character who goes by the charming name of Bloody Face?!
American Horror Story: Asylum premieres on Oct. 17. Until then, feel free to freak yourself out watching this trailer:
