A patient's loose in 3 creepy American Horror Story Asylum teasers

As we close in on the Oct. 17 premiere of American Horror Story season two, FX has released three weird new teasers that show off the surreal side of the Asylum.

The anthology horror series, masterminded by Ryan Murphy, was set in a modern-day haunted house and proved to be a surprise hit last year. Season two looks to up the ante, going period in the 1960s at an East Coast asylum managed by the church.

Season two is also flexing its star-power muscle, pulling in new and old faces Zachary Quinto, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson, Chloe Sevigny, Joseph Fiennes, James Cromwell, Adam Levine and Jenna Dewan Tatum as everything from nuns to patients at what will likely be one of the creepiest hospitals ever.

These three new, brief clips give us a few more peeks at the asylum, as well as the grounds, and it looks like somebody got free from their straitjacket.

Check out the three new teasers below, and between this and The Walking Dead, get ready for an absolutely terrifying October:
