American Horror Story releases first chilling teasers for season six


American Horror Story season six is going to be just as terrifying as usual if the new teasers are anything to go by.

Show bosses released the ominous clips via Snapchat and they've been handily put together by fans for a spine-tingling 30 seconds.

Don't be fooled by the first teaser: a farmhouse, with billowing smoke, that although menacingly creepy, seems perfectly liveable - until you hear the chainsaw and woman's scream.

Things get even more unsettling as it introduces a baby's mobile twisting with knives and hooks, before a demonic hand reaches up to grab it.

Speaking of grabbing, prepare to have nightmares forever more as you watch hands snatch at the feet of a screaming woman as she runs down a staircase in the third clip.

Fans have speculated that the crib could mean this series will focus on Michael.

If you remember the first series, he was the antichrist child that Vivien (Connie Britton) gave birth to, and who was taken away by Constance (Jessica Lange) to raise. He was last seen as a three-year-old, just after murdering his nanny.

Lady Gaga is tipped to return for the new series. It is back on screens in the US on September 14 and will air on Fox in the UK.
