There’s Actual Footage in the New ‘American Horror Story: Asylum’ Promo


The second season of American Horror Story kicks off on October 17th, and now, after months of mostly unsatisfying teasers, we finally get a better look at the creepy cast of characters who await us at the 1960s insane asylum known as Briarcliff Manor, complete with a Clockwork Orange-style eyelid retractor. “Here you will repent for your sins to the only judge that matters,” says Jessica Lange, who plays Sister Jude in the new installment, a nun more “sadistic than saintly.” The highlight of the all-to-brief promo? When she literally cracks the whip at the 10 second mark, causing a much younger nun to burst into tears. Click through to see for yourselves, and let us know in comments if you think there’s another Emmy in her future.
