You might have noticed that I added an American Horror Story Blog to my Blogroll on the right hand side a week or two ago. That is a new site I recently set up. It is http://www.ahsblog.com AHS stands for American Horror Story, so it should be easy to remember. I'm a big fan of the show and season two entitled Asylum starts next Wednesday, Oct 17th at 10pm on FX Network. I'd recommend you program it into your DVR.
If you've never seen the show, no worries. You do not have to know anything about season one to jump right into season two. Each season will be completely different, but some of the actors may carry over into new roles.
|Teresa and Leo from American Horror Story: Asylum|
Briarcliff Manor Sanitarium is the setting of Asylym. It was bought by the Catholic church in 1963 and transformed into a sanitarium. Prior to the purchase the facility was a Tuberculosis ward. It is run by Monsignor Timothy O'Hara and Sister Jude. Sister Eunice is second in command.
In the trailer we finally find out that Leo and Teresa are newlyweds on a honeymoon of haunted places, shown getting a little frisky at the Asylum. As for Lana, she’s the journalist who is convinced something is not right at Briarcliff. She is determined to find out why people seem to check into the Asylum, but never leave. Of course the experiments by Dr. Arden don’t look too comfortable but it’s the iron hand, make that wooden stick, of Sister Jude’s (Jessica Lange) management style that can bring anyone to tears. (Paraphrased from source).
Are you ready to get committed?! If you like the show already or are interested enough to give it a try, I'd appreciate it if you would like our Facebook page, check out the American Horror Story Blog site and head on over to the American Horror Story Forums to get some discussion going about the show!
