“American Horror Story” released one of their best promos yet of any season during the premiere of “Sons of Anarchy” Tuesday night. In the 30-second spot, we see a line of witch initiates in black high heels and a variation of the traditional witches hat marching up the porch. They proceed past a twisted pig man and the levitating girls to enter into the domain of the three witches.
Now these three witches are are not just standing around the house like you and I would, but are elevated on huge stilts with long flowing black dresses and masquerade masks covering their faces as the initiates march in. Then BAM! they take away the masks to reveal this season’s matriarchs of the show: Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, and Angela Bassett.
Did anyone else notice the white cat that ran across in front of them? I always love the twists those folks at “American Horror Story” put into each season theme they do. You can expect some very interesting takes on the traditional witch and voodoo priestess when the series premieres in October. And with the likes of Lange returning, along with Bassett and Bates… we’re going to have some acting diva overload this season.
And let’s not forget the young’uns that are coming back: Taissa Farmiga, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe and LanaBanana… er, Sarah Paulson. Emma Roberts and Gabourey Sidibe have joined the cast this season, as well as a host of other supporting guests. The latest addition is Danny Huston this season, playing Lange’s love interest. The “Magic City” alum dropped into the cast this week as he obviously has a lot of free time on his hands with the cancellation of his show.
How much witchy goodness can these guys pack into one little 30-second promo? A helluva lot, as you’ll see.
