Fans are eagerly awaiting every sneak peek they can get of the forthcoming American Horror Story: Hotel. Ironically the latest teaser features what appears to be a victim of an evil character dubbed The Addiction Demon. A man is shown with skin entirely covering his eyes and nose as he lashes around wildly in a hostelry hallway.

The bizarre image certainly gives weight to the FX show’s creator Ryan Murphy’s claim the coming season will include ‘the most disturbing scene we ve ever done.’

In the creepy short clip, the distressed man, who is seen standing in underpants in the hallway, is seen pawing at his face and banging on the wall in despair. The Addiction Demon itself is also said to have a face covered in skin. Bizarrely however it also wears an enormous metal dildo which looks like a drillbit. And it seems this bizarre feature could be used in the scene show’s head honcho Ryan claimed at a recent TCA meeting was the show’s most disturbing yet.

Victim: The man’s face is much like that of the show’s terrifying Addiction Demon character

He said: ‘He is a representation of that and what people go through fighting addiction. It s not done lightly or blithely. I think it s very powerful and strong.’

Max Greenfield, who is a newcomer to the anthology series, plays the drug addict character Gabriel who is involved in the rather vicious love scene.

Also appearing is Sarah Paulson’s Hypodermic Sally character, as well as the Addiction Demon itself.

Talking about the scene, Sarah told EW: ‘None of it’s crazy to me. I walk in and I’m like “Hello conical dildo demon person.” I don’t even think twice.

‘I had two heads last year, I don’t know what you want me to say. Like there’s nothing anybody can do on the show to shock me anymore.’

Max added: ‘Ryan gets real pleasure out of how far, I think, he can push it. And when we were doing that stuff, he was happy and he was scared. We all were.

‘And it was a good vibe on set because of that. I think we were like, “F*** yeah, man.

Let s push this and let s see how far we can go.'”

It appears the show’s maker may be attempting to up the scare factor to make up for the shortcomings of the disappointing fourth season Freak Show.

Earlier this month it was revealed Lady Gaga would be appearing as a guest star on the show.

The pop star admitted she was thrilled to play the bisexual vampiric socialite character The Countess, who just happens to own the hotel.

She said: ‘I’ve just been weeping while I’m here because I have returned to something I’ve believed in so much, which is the art of darkness.’
