The First Behind-The-Scenes Look At American Horror Story: Hotel

get ready to check in

American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy is notoriously known for keeping a tight lip on details. For Hotel, instead of keeping up an air of mystery, Murphy has done the complete opposite, from releasing creepy promo clips to set the season’s mood to revealing character plotlines, complete with photos of the actors in costume.

Now, ahead of the October 7 premiere, Murphy and FX have given us all a visitor’s pass to Hotel Cortez with a new behind-the-scenes video. In the clip, the actors talk about the set and give us another look at some of the characters' costumes, including Sarah Paulson’s character Sally, a drug addict, and Denis O’Hare’s cross-dressing character, Elizabeth Taylor.

“The costumes, the hair, the makeup, the set, it does so much to help you kind of feel you’re living inside of this world, and this set absolutely does that,” Sarah Paulson says in the clip.

The behind-the-scenes video also features another look at the Countess, Lady Gaga’s character and owner of Hotel Cortez, who says, “I can’t wait for you to check into my hotel.”

We can’t wait either. Although, we do wish we knew exactly what we’re in for upon arrival. If anything, this behind-the-scenes look is further indication that we’re going to be sleeping with the lights on throughout the entire season.
