WTF? "American Horror Story: Asylum"

American Horror Story: Asylum
Sorry. I was too angry and upset to post about the recent shooting at the FRC, so I decided to post about fictional Horror, instead.

Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk (creators of "Nip/Tuck" and "Glee") took audiences on a sexy and surreal journey into a rather  nontraditional ghost story in the first season of "American Horror Story," a show people either loved or hated. Uncle P adored the show and couldn't wait to see where it went. Of course, it helped that some amazing actors, including Jessica Lange; Dylan McDermott; Connie Britton; Zachary Quinto; Charles S. Dutton and Morris Chestnut, were along for the ride. Weird, creepy and supremely insane, Season 1 ended with fans wondering what would come next.

Now we are about to be treated to Season 2, with many cast members (including Lange) returning as completely different characters in a story about an East Coast insane asylum in the 1960's. Quinto (and a few others) join Lange in this new tale, which promises to be equally as freaky but not nearly as supernatural. Lange is the head of the asylum and joining the cast is sexy, tatted "The Voice" judge Adam Levine as 'The Lover" (whatever that means).

FX has released a very short and very freaky teaser for Season 2, called "American Horror Story: Asylum:"

Damn! What the heck is in those buckets? Who is the nun? Why is she throwing what appear to be body parts (?) on the ground in the woods? How is any of this connected to an asylum? Personally, I can't wait to find out. "American Horror Story: Asylum" premieres this coming October on FX. Between this and season 3 of "The Walking Dead," Fall 2012 should provide all the Horror any fan could ask for.

More, anon.
