Watch the First 5 Minutes of ‘American Horror Story: Asylum’


After a string of eerie, stylized teasers and one trailer with some actual footage, FX is psyching us up for American Horror Story: Asylum with a preview of the October 17th premiere’s first five minutes. Enter your age at the show’s Facebook page (because the clip contains some racy, potentially NSFW scenes) and meet Adam Levine and Jenna Dewan-Tatum’s “The Lovers,” a pair of randy contemporary newlyweds in the midst of a honeymoon tour of America’s most haunted sites. Although the horror freaks thrill at the idea of getting naked in its “death chute,” they meet their match in Briarcliff Asylum, an abandoned tuberculosis ward turned mental hospital. The sequence seems to be a mere prelude to the season’s main story line, which follows Jessica Lange as Sister Jude, the nun who controls the asylum after its purchase by the Catholic church in 1962.
