The writhing, demented woman figure is now a staple of horror movies. Seriously, hardly a horror goes by without this new-found cliche making an appearance. Anyway, FX are doing their level-best to persuade you to tune into American Horror Story: Coven by employing the trope in this quick-fire promo. Check out out below:

Want a bit more information than that promo provided? Well here's the synopsis:

Over 300 years have passed since the turbulent days of the Salem witch trials and those who managed to escape are now facing extinction. Mysterious attacks have been escalating against their kind and young girls are being sent away to a special school in New Orleans to learn how to protect themselves. Wrapped up in the turmoil is new arrival, Zoe (), who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own. Alarmed by the recent aggression, Fiona (Jessica Lange), the long-absent Supreme, sweeps back into town, determined to protect the Coven and hell-bent on decimating anyone who gets in her way.

What do you think? Can American Horror Story still terrify you? Let us know below.
