The latest in the string of FX's teaser promos for the upcoming season of American Horror Story: A short clip of a woman, presumably a patient at the institution for the criminally insane where the season will take place, being yanked off the ground by weird floating bandages - ones that are almost reminiscent of marionette strings. Could it be something to do with the aliens that have been confirmed to be featured in the series' second season, perhaps, or is it just some good old fashioned symbolism? Where's Mulder and Scully when you need them?

You can check out the new teaser above. As for the series' return, network FX has finally released the specific date and time of the premiere: October 17th, at 10 PM. Mark those calendars, guys, because this doesn't look like something you wanna miss.
