Ryan Murphy fans got a double dose of his dark imagination during Tuesday’s “Scream Queens” with the latest teaser for “American Horror Story: Hotel.”
The 29-second clip shows Wes Bentley (playing detective John Lowe) lying down for what will no doubt be a nightmare-filled sleep in a not very welcoming room at Hotel Cortez.
While that is eerie enough, the real horror is revealed when the camera pans under the bed and shows “New Girl” actor Max Greenfield, as Hollywood junkie Gabriel, locked in a silent scream.
This is not the first use of bed and mattress imagery released to haunt viewers before the series hits screens next week, but it is the creepiest.
