These American Horror Story: Hotel promos ignore the Do Not Disturb sign

Last Updated on July 22, 2021

Two more promos have dropped for American Horror Story: Hotel, and let me tell you this, that business ain't getting five stars on Yelp anytime soon. The first promo, entitled "Sleepwalk," is a balls-to-the-wall acid trip nightmare that will undoubtedly be scarier than any single image from the season. The second, entitled "Towhead," looks a little more like a Sia music video (or the ending to CHERNOBYL DIARIES), but it's still effective enough. Take a look below and get ready to check in to another season of Ryan Murphy madness!

Here's the recently unearthed plot details:

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.

Fun stuff! Premiering October 7th on FX, the new season of American Horror Story also stars Cheyenne Jackson, Max Greenfield, Lily Rabe, Naomi Campbell, Madchen Amick, Darren Criss and Chloe Sevigny.
