Welcome to Briarcliff Photos
It was a Rocky Horror Clockwork Orange Leatheryfacey Freaksfest, with a dash of X-Files thrown in.
Asylum promises happy scares and a goofy good time, all with a thematic underpinning that makes the ridiculousness easier to swallow, the spoonful of medicine that makes the several pounds of sugar go down.
This looks like a campy, period rich series this season, and I'm eager to see how they are going to manage the time shifts.
Briarcliff - it sounds like one of those depressing old-people manors where you go if you're not quite totally demented but you still might burn down the house making a hot borscht. This whole season is going to be like a Marilyn Manson video.
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.
I really have no clue where all this is going and it may eventually cross the line from fun-filled adventure to over-the-top mess. But for now I'm on board.
