“I am coming to the end of acting. I have a list: another stage production, maybe one or two more movies, one more season of American Horror Story. . . and then that is it for me. Because I think that’s enough. I want to go out with a bang. . . or should I say, a scare?” – Jessica Lange to Rolling Stone on leaving American Horror Story and the acting profession altogether next year. (GIFs from 1982′s Francis. And let’s all watch her sing ”The Name Game” from American Horror Story: Asylum while we contemplate a Hollywood without Jessica in it.)

I get slightly irritated by the slick, post-modern teaser trailers that American Horror Story puts out every year, that have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with what actually transpires during the season. And this one is just as overblown and psuedo-artistic and probably just as unrevealing as all the others, but WOW. What imagery! What flawless execution! The yummy Evan Peters staring through the window. The young witches (in fabulous identical picture hats) walking in lockstep towards the old mansion. Lana Del Rey answering the door. (Or maybe that was Sarah Paulson, I can’t tell) Then POW! The VERY TALL elder witches Angela Bassett (looking FAAAAAAABULOUS), Jessica Lange, and Kathy Bates removing their masks! Oh! Oh! And the weird white minotaur splayed out on the doorstep, WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT? Probably just more Ryan Murphy masturbatory fodder, but taken altogether this trailer REALLY PACKS A WOLLOP!
Perhaps the biggest head-scratcher of the season (and that’s saying something) was Jessica Lange’s big musical number last night. Seriously: WTF? Not saying I didn’t enjoy it, but WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK? Watch it here.
