Trivia

Sarah Paulson's reporter walk-through scene in Asylum was pulled directly from actual footage of Bill Baldini's exposé piece on Pennhurst Asylum in Spring City, PA. Baldini's work led to the closure of Pennhurst and the release of all its patients. Pennhurst is now the location of a seasonal haunted house and has been featured on numerous shows, due to the reported extreme paranormal activity in Pennhurst's buildings. See more »

"Asylum" - a season that completely redefines the horror TV genre
30 September 2018 | by snowflakeaudreySee all my reviews

"Asylum" isn't only the best American Horror Story season, but it may also be the best season in the history of horror television. For a TV genre that usually is plagued with bad actors, unbelievable plots, lazy writing, shock value, and a lack of longevity, "Asylum" managed to avoid every single one of the potholes and reach the end of the story with just as much strength as the beginning.

The season started off as more campy horror with a good amount of gore, but slowly transitioned into a psychological thriller with supernatural elements for the second half of the season, which genuinely surprised me. But, due to the depth of the writing, each character had a personality and backstory that so much time, thought, and love had gone into by these writers.

A beautiful season with outstanding performances from Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, and Evan Peters. I highly recommend this season to anyone who loves horror TV, and even those who don't - you'll be surprised by how much love and depth you'll find in this season.
