Watch the 1st 5 minutes of the freaky American Horror Story

Have you been seeing the ads for FX's new genre show, complete with people in lingerie and bring-out-the-gimp leather, and found yourself wondering what the hell that's all about? These first five minutes should help fill in some of the blanks.

If the only thing you know Ryan Murphy from is the songfest Glee, then the looks of American Horror Story—starring Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton and Jessica Lange—will be somewhat shocking.

But if you remember how (pardon the pun) gleefully twisted Murphy's Nip/Tuck was, then you'll not be surprised in the least.

Creepy twins, creepy abandoned houses and creepy dead things? Yeah, okay. I'm in.
