‘American Horror Story: Coven’ Trailer: Fight or Burn

So, witch school? Not as much fun as Harry Potter made it out to be.

The latest trailer for American Horror Story: Coven finally brings us–gasp–real footage. And it’s not pretty. There’s a weird guy with a steer head, Kathy Bates, a botched ritual sacrifice, a stake burning and Jessica Lange once again being the scariest person in the room. Her advice to her young pupils? “You girls need to learn to fight, when witches don’t fight, we burn.”

Three stories into American Horror Story, the only thing I’ve learned is always stay on Lange’s side. Check out the trailer below. Are these the kind of witchy plots you were hoping for?

American Horror Story: Coven premieres Wednesday, October 9th at 10PM on FX.
