"Let the Countdown Begin."
That’s what Lady Gaga tweeted with this new American Horror Story: Hotel promo, titled “Above & Below,” including a knife emoji and lips emoji for good measure. We already got our first look at Gaga’s character, The Countess, but this preview proves how absolutely bonkers this season is going to be:
Alternatively, it looks like it could be just another Lady Gaga music video.
The clip features The Countess in a lacy white dress in some sort of mirrored hallway, with cutaway shots of her in a black gown and dramatic hat. In both, she wields that lethal metal glove -- all the better for slitting your throat.
The Countess's legion of towhead vampire children are also on display here, and, from the looks of it, she keeps them on neon leashes. Or maybe she’s harvesting their blood? Who knows. But also, they dance!
Get down, little vampire kids!
American Horror Story: Hotel premieres Oct. 7 at 10 p.m. on FX.
