American Horror Story: Asylum Teaser: Save Us

american horror storyAmerican Horror Story debuted an ad campaign last season that, while appropriately creepy and unsettling with its imagery, was centered around a central thing: the Rubber Man. Though you had teasers about cellos and devil babies and family portraits, Rubber Man popped up time and time again to make your skin crawl, completely confuse you, or some combination of the two. When it came time for the second season of the show to have its initial push, you had to wonder what images and symbols would be trotted out the most and ultimately, what they would mean in the long run.

For the latest hint at what American Horror Story: Asylum has in store for us (and the poor patients in the institution), the show has brought back the nuns that have popped up in multiple other teasers and plunked them into the all-white room they once inhabited. But this time, rather than a symbolic blue outfit or eerie looks into the camera, the teaser has old time-y film effects and a patient bound on the floor and begging for help. You can already surmise that the two nuns, one dressed in black and the other white, will be representing polar opposite points on the morality spectrum – the one thing they have in common, though, is that neither is able to help the patient, whose wrists are wrapped in bandages that appeared a couple teasers ago. Perhaps even though one of the nuns may cling to being “good” and “holy”, her actions and continued clashing with the bad nun will ultimately be to the patient’s detriment.

American Horror Story: Asylum premieres Wednesday, October 17th at 10:00 on FX. You can check out all 12 other teasers here, as well as actual trailers for the show here and the TVOvermind American Horror Story discussion forum here.

How do you think the second season of American Horror Story will differ from the first? What significance do you think the nuns hold in each of the teasers? Which teaser has been your favorite thus far?
