Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story: Hotel premieres in October, but fans got a look at the crazy new season in a teaser on Thursday.

The 30-second clip features Wes Bentley, Kathy Bates and, of course, Lady Gaga. Gaga is set to play a blood-drinking socialite involved in a steamy love triangle and told Entertainment Weekly about her excitement returning to “the art of darkness.”

“It’s not something that everyone understands, but, for the people that do—Horror Story fans, my fans—there is a true connection between us, and it’s a language within itself,” she said.

Viewers can check into the hotel of oddities (like gum-ball pillars and blood-filled blenders) on October 7.
