With a name like American Horror Story: Coven, one might automatically assume that the series’ third reincarnation is all about witches, but new teaser art coupled with a new promo reminds us that there are other supernatural forces at work this time around.
The new key art shows a naked African-American woman sitting on a wooden floor with several large needles going through any and every part of her body. Basically, she’s a human voodoo doll.
And just when we thought it couldn’t get any creepier (seriously, when will we learn?) we watched the promo below, appropriately titled “Pins.” Yes, it’s only 9 seconds but trust us when we tell you it’s just as harrowing as what we’ve come to expect from AHS.
The brief clip begins with the pin-pricked woman breathing heavily as the pins are slowly pulled from her body by an outside force. Just as all the pins are removed, the figure twists into a blur of nothingness. Yeah, it’s weird.
Although much attention has been paid to Jessica Lange’s witch, Fiona, we know that — as the preview suggests — voodoo will play a role in this season as well. Angela Bassett is set to play a “voodoo queen” who doesn’t take too kindly to her witchy counterparts. “The history of LaLaurie and the history of the voodoo witches and the Salem witches are entangled throughout the ages,” executive producer Tim Minear told Entertainment Weekly.
