Freaky American Horror Story S2 trailer shows tons of new footage

After being inundated with freaky teasers, we finally have the first real trailer for FX's American Horror Story: Asylum, which sets up the premise and shows some actual footage from the show. Not surprisingly, it's freaky as hell.

If there was any question about how Jessica Lange would work in a completely new role, it's been answered—because Sister Jude looks to be one badass nun.

We also get a peek at several new cast members, including Chloe Sevigny, James Cromwell and Jenna Dewan.

The period-set horror tale looks like a worthy followup to the murder house, and we're anxious to see what insanity Ryan Murphy can pack into this setting.

Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think:

New episodes are set to premiere Oct. 17.
