New Voodoo-centric art for “AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN”Movies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
Here’s a lot more of that live Voodoo doll.
Set in New Orleans, a large component of AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN will be Voodoo. Angela Bassett is playing real-life practitioner Marie Laveau and the story is said to revolve around a longstanding rivalry between those who practice the Louisiana magic and a coven who descend from Salem witches. That’s been actualized in some of COVEN’s promotional art depicting what most readily calls to mind the infamous “Voodoo Doll.”
AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN premieres October 9. Its first episode, “Bitchcraft,” will see a young girl, Zoe, shattered to discover she possesses a strange genetic affliction tracing back to the dark days of Salem. Zoe is whisked away to Miss Robichaux’s Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies, a mysterious school in New Orleans devoted to safeguarding the few remaining descendants who share this unique bloodline. Harboring a secret agenda, Fiona Goode, the most powerful witch of their generation, returns to town, reigniting old rivalries with the Coven’s deadly enemies, the Voodoo.
