Watch the Insane First Trailer for American Horror Story: Hotel

Check in if you dare!

Liz Raftery

This is one hotel that travelers seeking a relaxing vacation will probably want to avoid.

FX on Thursday released the first full cast trailer for American Horror Story: Hotel, and by the looks of things, this may be the most demented season of Ryan Murphy's franchise yet.

While the 30-second clip doesn't divulge much in the way of plot, it does give us a glimpse at some of the Hotel Cortez's guests and staff members, including hotel manager Iris (Kathy Bates) and her son Donovan (Matt Bomer), hotel owner The Countess (Lady Gaga) and The Countess' former lover, actress Ramona Royale (Angela Bassett).

The trailer is clearly inspired by Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, but we have to admit, this makes the Overlook Hotel look like the Four Seasons.

American Horror Story: Hotel premieres Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 10/9c on FX. Check out the trailer below. Will you watch?
