American Horror Story: Hotel story details and images are in!


Much of American Horror Story: Hotel has predictably been cloaked in mystery, but today we're finally getting some inside info about the latest chapter of the bizarre FX anthology series.

EW has scored some plot details straight from series creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuck, as well as our first official look at Lady Gaga as the show's central character, a socialite who apparently drinks blood. Additionally, the site has unveiled a big batch of pics of Hotel's other main players, all of which can be found below!

Built in 1930 by the rich and charming but deeply psychotic James March (Evan Peters), the beautiful art-deco Hotel Cortez is, in actuality, a labyrinthine structure built to hide March’s murderous activities (think dead ends, secret rooms, endless shafts).

In present day, though, the Cortez is acquired by Gaga’s Countess, a glamorous socialite who attends art openings and fashion shows and maintains her looks not from a steady diet of kale but from imbibing human blood. The Countess is also insatiable when it comes to love and sex, which sets up a macabre love triangle between her, the similarly blood-hungry Donovan (Matt Bomer) and the newly turned male model Tristan (Finn Wittrock).

Also gravitating around the world of the Cortez are Ramona Royale (Angela Bassett), an actress/former lover of The Countess’ seeking revenge; Iris (Kathy Bates), Donovan’s mother and the front desk clerk; Liz Taylor (Denis O’Hare), a cross-dresser nicknamed by The Countess; Hypodermic Sally (Sarah Paulson), a junkie and friend of The Countess; Detective John Lowe (Wes Bentley), a cop investigating a murderer named the Ten Commandments Killer; and The Addiction Demon, a creature in the vein of Rubberman or Bloodyface, who has no eyes or mouth but does wield a nasty, conical drillbit dildo.

Ah yes, a good old drillbit dildo! If you didn't know you were in the world of AHS already, that one ought to tip you off.

American Horror Story: Hotel premieres on October 7th.
