American Horror Story: Asylum
The Asylum Is Open for Business. Check Your Sanity at the Door.
The "American Horror Story" continues to make a huge success, with the second round to focus on mental illness and the problems caused in an asylum. The cycle entitled Asylum and betray the main setting where horror unfolding stories of our heroes. And here we meet the talented Jessica Lange, no longer as a cranky mother, but as a nun (Sister Jude) who works as responsible at the institution and that strives to leave behind a controversial past.
With her lies and the prostateyomeni (Sister Mary Eunice), the charming priest and owner of Foundation (Monsignor Timothy Howard) and the hard doctor who suggests experimenting with patients of the asylum (Arthur Arden). The waters of the Foundation will come to disturb the supposed killer Kit Walker (who is known to us from the Tate 1st circle), together with an ambitious journalist who wants to penetrate the depths of asylum.
The song we hear constantly in the second cycle ("Dominique") was interpreted by a Belgian Nun and was loved in Belgium, France and elsewhere in the 1960s. The nun committed suicide in 1985 with barbiturates, due to economic difficulties.
Here the range is excellent, with the unhealthy atmosphere of despair to dominate at the institution and with the characters oscillate between morality and the requirements of their desire. Mystery and horror, sadism and envy, sin and repentance are some of the keywords that appear as concepts within each episode. The attempt to freeze time and avoid progression opposes scientific visa, while combining religious belief and logic sometimes seems particularly difficult.
Another fascinating cycle 13 episodes that keeps the suspense until the end. See the "American Story" Horror and travel into the past, looking from the keyhole living in an asylum, and conflicts between the protagonists!
