This writer wasn’t a huge fan of the first season of the Ryan Murphy-created “American Horror Story,” but if going solely by marketing materials alone, the spooky posters that debuted Tuesday to promote season 2 alone where enough to garner some interest in checking out the new season as it heads to a Briarcliff, Massachusetts mental institution for “American Horror Story: Asylum.”

This writer wasn’t a huge fan of the first season of the Ryan Murphy-created “American Horror Story,” but if going solely by marketing materials alone, the spooky posters that debuted Tuesday to promote season 2 alone where enough to garner some interest in checking out the new season as it heads to a Briarcliff, Massachusetts mental institution for “American Horror Story: Asylum.”

With Jessica Lange, Zachary Quinto and Sarah Paulson returning for the new season along with new actors in Adam Levine, James Cromwell, Jenna Dewan and Chloë SevignyEW now brings us some images that may be even more convincing in terms of turning naysayers over to creator Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s dark side. We get a peek at a meticulous-looking Quinto, along with a rather creepy, bald Cromwell, and an image of Sevigny (as mental patient Shelley The Nymphomaniac) that gives us some “Shutter Island” vibes. Season 2 is supposed to be a more grounded take on the series (relatively speaking, we imagine), looking into the state of mental health care in the '60s.

Its first season, which just racked up a whopping seventeen Primetime Emmy nominations, was certainly divisive and spooky as all hell, so we’ll have to hope we can have a little more of that in the vintage era presented in season 2. “American Horror Story: Asylum” hits FX on October 17th, just in time for Halloween.
