Ryan Murphy today released the main titles for American Horror Story: Coven, which features Sarah Paulson, Taissa Farmiga, Frances Conroy, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, Emma Roberts, Denis O'Hare, Kathy Bates, and Jessica Lange. It premieres October 9 on FX.

Said Murphy: "You have to watch it 10 times because every frame is a clue for what the season will be. And ever year it has a different tone, look and concept. By the last frame of the main title for Coven, you'll really have an idea of what the last frame of the Coven season will be."

The show has already released a set of super-creepy teasers.

Writes THR: "Coven stars Jessica Lange as a witch named Fiona; Kathy Bates plays historical personage Madame LaLaurie, a Louisiana-born socialite and serial killer who kept slaves bound in her home; and Angela Bassett portrays voodoo expert/cult leader Marie Laveau. Coven tells the secret history of witches and witchcraft in America. More than 300 years have passed since the turbulent days of the Salem witch trials, and those who managed to escape are now facing extinction."

Watch them all, AFTER THE JUMP...

  3. Jessica Lange, one of the best actresses of our time, has reached that mature age where her services are no longer wanted in Hollywood movies, so she is relegated to the small screen, television. I was only able to watch the first clip(other 2 not available...)and it looked like weird junk
    Poor Jessica, forced to do horror stuff, like aging actresses of the past. Does anyone remember all the Grade D movies that Joan Crawford did back in the 1960's - Berserk, Trogg, Straight-Jacket, etc.
    What a way to end a career.

  4. Yeah, I'm sure she's absolutely torn up over winning an Emmy and a Golden Globe for her role on the show.

    Poor her.

  5. David, maybe you should try watching the show, or at least reading about it.

    Jessica Lange was nominated for Emmys and Golden Globes for her performance on this show. It's not D-work.

  6. Yep, cuz Hollywood is cranking out such great hits and memorable films now. (hint:sarcasm)

    LOL @OddBet- that was awesome.

    And yes, it was weird. It was weird as f*ck- that's the point. AHS is waaay over the top, crazy, all over the place, but it has some of the best performances out there in TV.

    Def gonna be watching!!!!!

  7. Lange is not relegated to the small screen. She chooses to do the show because she enjoys it and enjoys working with Ryan Murphy.

  8. The title sequence is such a rip of True Blood...

  9. YES!!!!!!!!!

  10. The title sequence might be a rip of True Blood but AHS is everything True Blood should have been. True Bloods title sequence is the only thing that held up after the first season.

  11. By the way Leslie Jordan is in this too. They are filming now and he keeps winding up at The Corner Pocket shoving money down dancers pants.

  12. This video is not available in your country.

    So much for the WORLD Wide Web.

  13. And let us not forget, also starring Patti Lupone!

  14. Ain't nothin' wrong with that, RayJacksonMS.

    I'm just generally confused about the whole thing. I mean I know I can't gather the entire scope of the show from 2 teasers but where's the horror? I still can't figure out if this is set in present day or 300 years ago. It seems more like a soap opera than ever, with a little witchcraft thrown in as an afterthought for a "horror" factor. I'll still watch either way but it seems like all the guest stars are there to compensate for lack of ideas.

  15. @David - the world has changed. We're in a golden age of TV while Hollywood movies steadily become more juvenile, CGI heavy and empty every year. It's why so many actors are switching back and forth between the mediums. Matthew McConaughey is on a career roll at the moment yet also has an HBO series launching in the new year.

    Lange's work on AHS has been amazing and the characters / moments she has been given to play are stunning. It is not D level hackwork.

  16. Jessica Lange takes no prisoners! A consummate actor.

  17. David clearly doesn't know what he's talking about with AHS. More uninformed caterwauling by someone with zero information.

  18. I cant wait!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. I'm dying waiting until October 9th!! AHS is some of the best stuff on TV and yes it's scary. For those still wondering what the season will be, do your research. Kathy Bates plays Delphine Lalaurie. The show has flashbacks to her time in New Orleans as well as Salem. But the majority takes place in modern times with Lange playing the head of a school for young witches, the last of the girls who are descendants of the witches of Salem. Angela Basset and Gabourey Sibide are also in it this year. Cannot wait for the scenery-chewing to begin!!

  20. "Jessica Lange, one of the best actresses of our time, has reached that mature age where her services are no longer wanted in Hollywood movies, so she is relegated to the small screen, television."

    Where there is more money and more opportunity for everyone outside the 5% that are currently 'in', as well as a chance to boost one's presence for movie roles.

    Look at Bryan Cranston - he was Hal off of Malcolm in the Middle to most who recognized him. Thanks to television, he transcended that, and has been working steadily since.

    Or look at Kevin Spacey - a great actor who hasn't really resonated all that much over the past decade with movie audiences. He saw an opportunity with House of Cards, one that allows him to balance his other commitments.

    Hell, go back to James Gandolfini. No one gave him a substantive role as a film actor before the Sopranos. No one took him seriously as a dramatic actor, yet he helped create the definitive antihero for any medium.

    Television isn't constricting - it's liberating. Outside of most of the network dreck, this is a golden age.

  21. I think Ryan Murphy's handling of Cory Monteith's death was really spooky I wonder when this show will join the pantheon of the greats. "The New Normal" (now cancelled) was remarkable.

  22. RIP OFF of "True Blood" opening.

    Posted by: jg | Sep 26, 2013 1:33:25 PM


  23. This is not the 1950s.

    Modern films are trash and television (as if people actually watch television shows on televisions anymore) is where all the best work is done. The paradigm flipped years and years and years ago.

    Insulting entire genres of entertainment (as if any way of telling a story could be inherently bad) also stopped being cute back when dinosaurs still ruled the Earth.

    Jessica Lange is at the peak of a distinguished career and her being on this show is proof of it.

  24. Creepy....

  25. That's the genius of AHS, Ms. Beaverhousen. The trappings of the horror genre are allegorical, here. All of the truly horrific things that happen to the characters on AHS are things that could and do happen to every one of us (e.g.: bigotry, infidelity, addiction, etc).
