American Horror Story: Asylum Is Going to Feature WHAT?

The second season of anthology series American Horror Story, subtitled 'Asylum,' looks like it could be superior to the much-talked-about first season of the series, which aired last year on FX. The new season, which premieres Wednesday, changes settings, time periods, and characters entirely -- 'Asylum' is set in a 1960s sanitarium run by the Catholic church. While there are some returning cast members -- most prominently Jessica Lange -- they're playing far different characters. Lange stars as a nun, while the series also features actors such as James Cromwell, Chloe Sevigny, Joseph Fiennes, Lilly Rabe, Zachary Quinto, and Adam Levine. It looks like it's going to be a season full of intense psychological terror. But there's something else that appears to be a factor in this year's scares... 


According to the Huffington Post, the first two episodes give a "strong intimation that aliens are involved in the events of the season." 

Color me shocked: I don't know if anyone could say they saw this one coming -- though it kind of makes that "Bandage" teaser from a few months back make a little more sense. Still, it's not a move I expected American Horror Story to make, though I can't say I mind. It's not a show that's ever shied away from going too over the top, so there's something to respect in the series deciding to bring in some hardcore sci-fi. 

What do you think about this new development? Are you skeptical, or more excited to see where the story goes? 

American Horror Story: Asylum begins on Wednesday with the premiere episode "Welcome to Briarcliff." Will you be tuning in?

"According to the Huffington Post"


Unless you get the same info from other sources, I wouldn't bet a lot of money on what Huffington Post has said.  They've been known in the past to publish incorrect information and then absolutely refuse to correct themselves...even when the incorrect information they published causes a business to lose customers.  I never read anything that comes from that source any more.

definitely tuning in...freakiest, weirdest, sickest show in television ... and I LOVE IT!!!! I'm not turned off at all by the prospect of aliens, it's not as if it's not more unbelievable than pyscho reincarnated serial killer spirits or non existent rubber man ghosts :)
