    This season of AHS was a big shocker to me. I expected horror and I received such intense characters and an overall unexpected evil that came from these actors; they have such a beautiful talent. If you don't already know, these season are NOT connected. They create and whole NEW storyline but they use the same actors. Every actor in this show is so gifted in the way they can morph into a new character and perform their role so effortlessly. I enjoyed the plot twists and the "back story" scenes that they injected to help us understand each characters presence and necessity to the plot.

    The acting is top notch - especially Jessica Lange and it's such a great idea for a show, you can't not love it if you're a horror fan. However, there is unfulfilled potential here. It could have really been amazing. Almost feels like a different writer took over close to the end. They didn't explain several important things and it felt like the writers gave up. I also really hated that Name Game episode. That was the stupidest thing I've seen in a long time. I was embarrassed for the actors. Nevertheless, it still shines in a sea of senseless muck. Definitely worth watching.

    One thing I really like about the American Horror Story franchise is that every season is a different story that has nothing to do with the season(s) prior. I like this because you don't need to watch the seasons in order. The series utilizes many of the same great actors in each season, but they play different characters. You will definitely enjoy this season (Asylum) if you are a horror/mystery/thriller/suspense fan as FX does a great job at pushing the boudaries of what can be showed on TV. Very good show, I definitely recommend it.

    American Horror Story, Season 1 was awesome. American Horror Story: Asylum, (season 2) was amazing! This series truly gives suspense in each episode. It is one of the series one doesn't want to stop watching. Questions pop up as others are answered. It really shows how scary it can be to be trapped with no escape. I definitely recommend watching the first season of AHS before watching AHS: Asylum, but they are both great series on their own as well. I cannot wait to watch American Horror Story: Coven.

    Likely my favorite AHS season

    While watching the first few seasons of AHS I find myself thinking I'm seeing a modern twilight zone, there's just so many bizarre things happening all at once from demons, aliens, serial killers, etc yet it all works so amazingly well. This is likely my favorite season of all, Jessica Lang excels at her performance as does jessica Paulson. One of the stand out performances is zachery quinto.

    I have been a huge fan of this series for a long time. Originally I was never going to buy this season to add to my collection since it's on Netflix. But BestBuy dropped the price from 34.99 to 17.99 and you just can't pass that up. All in all the season is not as good as the first but it is still entertaining. Compared to the 1st there are a lot more supernatural/horror themes thrown into this season which is extremely confusing to keep track of.

    Once I started watching this show, I couldn't stop. As an older person, I couldn't find any movies that had the 'shock' or 'scare' effect any more. However, American Horror Story changed all that! Even the opening music coupled with the way images are flashed across the screen, make my skin crawl. It's the best scary movie I've seen in 20 + years. If you like to be scared, and are looking for something out of the box, then THIS is the show for you!

    This is one of my favorite shows! Once again the American Horror Story series did not fail. the beginning was incredible, however I feel like the series ended kind of abruptly with a few questions left lingering. It was very creepy and has moments that make your skin crawl. It is definitely everything that you would suspect with the word asylum in the name. We are looking forward to watching and purchasing future series of American Horror Story!
