You’ve seen the peephole on the “American Horror Story: Hotel” door … now get a look at what’s on the other side. The FX anthology series has released two new teaser videos for its fifth season, and they give fans another quick look at the terror to come this fall.
The first video released on EW is called “Do Not Disturb.” A camera zooms in on the keyhole as someone – or something – pounds on the door. So, what is on the other side? A man … with no eyes, face or nose. His whole face is one big blob with veins running across it. He grabs his head before moving on to bang on another door in the hallway.
The second video released is called “Beauty Rest” … and it is just as chilling. A hand with metal claw-like pieces attached to the fingers slowly reaches to touch the face of a person wearing costume makeup. The person seems happy to let the fingers graze over … until the hand reaches to strangle the person.

The teasers come just a day after a photo of Season 5 star Lady Gaga in costume leaked online. The images showed Gaga as her new character, Elizabeth, the wealthy socialite owner of Hotel Cortez. Gaga was dressed in a bright pink caped dress … and rocking a spooky silver glove. It was the second time that fans got to look at her potentially deadly accessory as it was unveiled during the “Front Desk” teaser video.
“American Horror Story: Hotel” stars returning cast members Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer, Denis O’Hare, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Emma Roberts, Chlöe Sevigny and Finn Wittrock. Newcomers to the franchise include Lady Gaga, Max Greenfield and Cheyenne Jackson. Season 5 premieres in October.
Season 5 premieres on FX on Wednesday, Oct. 7.
