This season will feature two murderous threats in the form of The Ten Commandments Killer, a serial offender who justifies his actions in accordance with biblical teachings; and The Addiction Demon, who roams the hotel, armed with a drill bit dildo. Making it even more intriguing, the series Includes a two-part Halloween episode, "Devil's Night", which will feature a dinner with "the biggest serial killers of all time", including Wuornos and John Wayne Gacy.
The season is a true ensemble of all the previous series that were centered around different characters and locations – Murder house, insane asylum, pitch coven, freak show; and now a haunted hotel. According to creators Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy, thematically, The Hotel will be much darker, bloodier and ghastlier than previous ones, and will see the reprisal of other characters from past cycles. Inspiration came from old hotel horror films and actual hotels situated in downtown Los Angeles, with a reputation for sinister events. Hotel features one of the most expansive sets in American Horror Story history, with production designer Mark Worthington building two stories on a soundstage, along with a working elevator and stairway.
