It might be a month away but FX are certainly ramping up the promotion for the upcoming, American Horror Story: Coven.
First of all, there have been six trailers so far. The first five have been mini-ones focusing on witchcraft, coffins and hanging but the latest one, titled Initiation featured the whole cast, including a rather delightful final shot of Marie Laveau (Angela Bassett), Fiona Goode (Jessica Lange) and Delphine LaLaurie (Kathy Bates) looks suitably creepy.
This poster however seeing a snake coming out of the mouth of three women (Bassett/Bates/Lange?). Again, pretty creepy. On the plus side, a synopsis for the first episode, Bitchcraft has been released ...
A young girl, Zoe, is shattered to discover she possesses a strange
genetic affliction tracing back to the dark days of Salem. Zoe is
whisked away to Miss Robichaux’s Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies, a
mysterious school in New Orleans devoted to safeguarding the few
remaining descendants who share this unique bloodline. Harboring a
secret agenda, Fiona Goode, the most powerful witch of their generation,
returns to town, reigniting old rivalries with the Coven’s deadly
enemies, the Voodoo.
Written by Ryan Murphy & Brad Falchuk; directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon.
And Danny Huston has been cast as a love interest for Lange's character too. Overall, this is looking more and more spellbinding. I can't wait to see this 'Coven' now.
