Let the insane marketing campaign for FX's American Horror Story: Asylum begin! I have no doubt the ads for this upcoming second season of the series are going to get weirder and creepier. 

The first promo teaser for the show has been released, and it features a nun walking into the woods holding two buckets. She stops to empty the bucket out onto the trail, but what in the hell is in the buckets?! 

Set in 1964, American Horror Story: Asylum stars Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, Zachary Quinto, James Cromwell, and Joseph Fiennes. The show's co-creator Ryan Murphy talked about the series recently saying...

When we launched the show last year, we kept quiet about the closed-ended nature of the show because we didn't want to tip off the audience that the characters were not going to survive. Now that it has been established that each year is a closed-ended story, the time seemed right to reveal what we're calling the new installment.

We picked 'Asylum' because it not only describes the setting - an insane asylum run by Jessica Lange's character which was formerly a tuberculosis ward - but also signifies a place of haven for the unloved and the unwanted. This year's theme is about sanity and tackling real life horrors.

I'm looking forward to seeing the insanity that's in store for us this season! How about you?
