Unless you were watching "Scream Queens" Tuesday night on Fox, that is, when the network premiered a 20-second clip of "Hotel."
Here we see Wes Bentley as detective and family man John Lowe, presumably soon after he's checked into Hotel Cortez to investigate a chain of gruesome murders. In that too-close-for-comfort way of horror flicks, the camera pans from above the bed to underneath it, where we see a strung-out Max Greenfield -- who plays Hollywood junkie Gabriel -- screaming for help.
None of the other cast -- Lady Gaga, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Lily Rabe or Matt Bomer, among others -- shows up. But, rest assured, they're probably there, just out of view, creeping everyone out.
"American Horror Story: Hotel" premieres on FX at 10 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 7.
"Scream Queens" airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Fox.
