'American Horror Story': You've seen the creepy video, now see the even creepier poster

Friday (Aug. 19) was apparently "bombard the Internet with freaky imagery from 'American Horror Story' day."

First, FX released a 30-second teaser for its new series featuring, among other things, a rubber- or latex-encased arm reaching down to creepily caress Connie Britton's character. Then came the key art for the series:

"American Horror Story," co-created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk ("Glee," "Nip/Tuck"), premieres Wednesday, Oct. 5.
