Watch: American Horror Story: Hotel’s opening sequence alone is chilling

American Horror Story: Hotel hasn’t even premiered yet, but we’d bet that it’s already inspiring nightmares. Co-creator Ryan Murphy posted the show’s opening credits on YouTube today, and it’s frankly impressive just how chilling the roughly 1-minute sequence manages to be.

Between spooky music and flashes of strange goings-on, it’s enough to make you consider sleeping with the light on, especially if you happen to currently be staying in a hotel. The title sequence shows blood dripping down walls, hands reaching and grabbing at people, heads emerging out of mattresses, and ghost-like figures wandering down hallways. All the while, there are quick cuts to the Ten Commandments, including “thou shalt not take the Lord’s name in vain” and, of course, “thou shalt not kill.” (Somehow, we think at least one character will break the latter.)

The credits have their risqué moments as well. Throughout the sequence, there are handful of shots of lingerie-clad characters, as well as peeks through door peepholes. “Thou shalt not covet” and “thou shalt not commit adultry” may be other commandments that the characters don’t bother to follow.

As the next installment in the American Horror Story anthology, Hotel is guaranteed to get your adrenaline pumping. The latest addition is set to follow the residents (both temporary and permanent) of a terrifying hotel, along with its employees. Horrors will unfold over the course of the season and characters will check in and out — if they’re lucky.

The talented ensemble cast includes Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Lady Gaga, Matt Bomer, Angela Basset, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, Chloe Sevigny, Finn Wittrok, Denis O’Hare, Cheyenne Jackson, Max Greenfield, and Wes Bentley.

American Horror Story: Hotel premieres on Oct. 7 at 10/9 c on FX.
