Angela Bassett in American Horror Story

A look at some lavish costumes and creepy videos for the upcoming season of “American Horror Story.”

Even with the October premiere drawing nearer and all of the already frightening glimpses into “American Horror Story‘s” new season Coven, the creators of the hit horror-drama still manage to entice us with every new teaser. And they’ve done it again.

The most recent video teaser shows a faceless figure pulsing with forearm-length pins jabbed into its body, obviously taking note of the strong influences of voodoo in the season to come, all the while keeping with those good ‘ol chilling sound effects that always make their way into our nightmares (or mine anyway.)

In addition, they’ve delivered us two new photos. One of Kathy Bates as the cruel-sounding and (obviously) fabulous Madame Delphine DeLaurie, and one of Angela Bassett as the Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau. Looking at the sheer intricacy of their clothing, all of the 1830s flashbacks to come are getting me all hot and bothered.

Come on, who doesn’t love a good time period story?

And from the way “AHS” has done it in the past, I’m sure taking a story as interesting as the Salem Witch Trials, throwing in some voodoo and adding Bates, Bassett, Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, and the slew of returning alumni, this season will make quite the delicious witch’s brew.
