There’s no shortage of news when it comes to FX’s “American Horror Story: Hotel”, opening for business on October 7th.
Now, we already have details on the elusive annual “Halloween special” that will be split into a two-parter.
Titled ‘Devil’s Night’, the first hour will feature the return of “AHS” alum Lily Rabe, playing serial killer Aileen Wurnos, says EW. The episode will be focused around the dinner party from hell at the Hotel Cortez, involving guest and detective John Lowe (Wes Bentley). Teases co-creator Ryan Murphy, “The biggest serial killers of all time all come to the hotel. Gacey. Aileen. John Lowe’s invited to a devil’s night dinner. He thinks someone is pulling a huge prank on him. It’s the biggest serial killers of all time in a room with him and he has to figure who is trying to make him lose his mind.”
Adds the site, part two finds Criss playing a hipster who, along with his girlfriend, leaves Silverlake to avoid trick-or-treaters. Given the couple’s snotty attitude, their decision to check into the Hotel Cortez is not ideal. “They’re horrified they can’t get their artisanal cheese and they hate the sheets and they put Iris [Kathy Bates] through the wringer and she’s not happy,” says Murphy.
