    These trailers are so creepy! FX has done a great job of revealing little of the story but still instilling a creepy sense at the same time. My coworker at Dish and I are looking forward to Jessica Lange’s character. I was never particularly afraid of nuns, that was until I saw these trailers. The white china-doll appearance is what makes it so creepy. I already have my Hopper DVR set to record the new episodes in October. In the mean time, I’m re-watching the first season which I recorded to the massive 2 TB hard drive in my Hopper DVR. I have over 2000 hours available to fill with great scary movies. I am curious how long Adam Levine lasts on the show.
