The poster for American Horror Story: Coven is the rare effort that actually tries and succeeds in evoking a mood while also being, well, provocative.
The cast for the FX spookfest’s third chapter is heavy on the women — featuring the estimable likes of Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Basset and Sarah Paulson — so it makes sense that the poster is populated by a trio of witchy women.
As for their slithery friend… perhaps Freud said it best: Sometimes a snake is just a snake.
