American Horror Story season 6 is getting stranger and stranger. Landing online today, the latest promo channels Stranger Things in revealing a hideous monstrosity stomping towards the camera.

Much like the Demogorgon of the hit Netflix series, this creature has very little facial features, a similar humanoid shape, and seems to revel in dank, misted places. The logline also reads, “Run,” something spelled out in the Christmas lights when Winona Ryder’s Joyce tried contacting her son.

Another reference brought to mind is The Mist, also featuring dangerous entities lurking out of sight. Plus, the teaser shares a name with the Stephen King tale.

FX CEO John Landgraf revealed during the Television Critic’s Association press tour that many of these teasers are “misdirects” to keep the overarching theme of season 6 a mystery. From the demon baby to the Texas Chainsaw Massacre-esque house to the lady with spider eyes, they’ve certainly been a mixed bag.

Watch the latest promo in the video above.
