Critic reviews for Welcome to Briarcliff
A great episode that sets several stages while still being an incredibly fun, strange, and entertaining hour of television.
As wackadoo as American Horror Story is, they do often raise interesting themes.
The premiere of American Horror Story: Asylum: I didn't love it, but I am INTERESTED.
Fans will be more than delighted with this premiere, as American Horror Story: Asylum presents an intriguing mystery that is perfectly acted and just as darkly-goofy as the first season.
It was a Rocky Horror Clockwork Orange Leatheryfacey Freaksfest, with a dash of X-Files thrown in.
