WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD. Do NOT read or watch the video below if you do not want to know what will happen in “American Horror Story: Coven.”
The “American Horror Story” teaser videos and posters are already epic … yet the latest promo video from the FX mini-series definitely tops them all.
Following the release of four haunting new images, a promo for what appears to be the first episode of “Coven” has leaked online. Titled as “School,” the video is guaranteed to leave you pressing the repeat button and counting down the days until the Oct. 9 premiere date.
The promo video kicks off with an eyeball looking in a room at Kathy Bates’ character, Madame LaLaurie. With what appears to be blood smeared on her face, LaLaurie’s slight smile changes to fear as the clip shows a sweaty shirtless man with blood running down his chest … and a large bull head covering his face.
Cutting to present day, the camera shows Taissa Farmiga’s character, Zoe, kissing her boyfriend. But as they get more physical something goes wrong. Blood from her boyfriend starts dripping on her face and soon she’s screaming as her he lays bloody on her bed.
“Apparently I’m a witch,” Zoe says as the video shows her on a train following the incident.
“There’s something I should have told you,” her mother says to her. “There’s a school there for girls like you. You’ll be safe.”
But the school appears to be anything but safe when Zoe arrives only to be pinned to a table by a slew of girls. She screams as one of them takes a knife to plunge into her, but before anything can happen, Jessica Lange’s character, Fiona, stops them.
“Idiots,” she tells them. “The only thing you have to be afraid of is me.”
Showing what power she holds, she sends the girls flying into the walls with a flick of her wrist. And while the girls should fear the Supreme witch, there are greater evils out there that want them dead.
“You girls need to learn how to fight,” Fiona warns them as a clip shows a girl being dragged by a group dressed in black. “When witches don’t fight we burn.”
The promo video ends with Angela Bassett’s character, Marie Laveau, not laughing … but cackling.
Besides the new “School” video, “American Horror Story” fans can also feast their eyes on a brand new promo poster. Similar to the detention video, the poster shows people levitating against a wall … only this time they are recognizable. On the left hand side appears to be Sarah Paulson’s character, Cordelia, along with Bates’ LaLaurie. On the right side fans can identify “American Horror Story” newcomer Gabourey Sidibe and Bassett’s Laveau. In the center of the room Lange’s Fiona sits casually on a chair while a fire roars behind her.
“American Horror Story: Coven” will premiere on FX on Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 10 p.m. Let us know your thoughts on the new video and photo in the comments section below.
