Ryan Murphy sure does know when we need a pick-me-up, even if it's the creepiest pick-me-up ever. 

The American Horror Story creator dropped three new Hotel promos on Twitter this evening, and they were exactly what we needed to both never sleep again and quench the serious AHS-related thirst we've developed in advance of the October premiere. 

First, take a gander at the video above. It's just an eye in a keyhole. Totally normal. Creepy, but not nightmare-inducing. 

Now, brace yourselves, and check out the second promo...

Just little blonde children, right? No big deal. Oh, they're all turning around, and they're dead, they're ghosts, and they're coming right for us! 

Moving right along! Maybe the third and final teaser will be a nice palate cleanser...


One of our greatest fears is to be sewn into a mattress. We didn't even consider that to be a thing until about ten seconds ago, and now it is the thing we fear the most. 

Curse you, Ryan Murphy and company! Curse you and your families for all the sleeps we won't be having tonight! Then again, you are giving us hipster Darren Criss, serial killer Lily Rabe, bisexual Lady Gaga, and a little show called Scream Queens, so we guess we'll take the nightmares in exchange. 

This season also stars Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, Wes Bentley, Cheyenne Jackson, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Max Greenfield, Finn Wittrock, Denis O'Hare, Chloe Sevigny, Matt Bomer, and more. 

American Horror Story: Hotel premieres Wednesday, October 7 on FX.
