Review: American Horror Story - Asylum / series

April 16, 2023 – 10:20 am

As promised, here is my review for the second season of American Horror Story.

American Horror Story is pretty strange.
Not only because a completely different bearing series like Nip / Tuck or Glee come here in the name of the creator's mind, but mainly because the first season is also a fine line between genius and idiocy.
I like the first season, but not fully.
That, represented by Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott couple on the verge of a nervous breakdown I find just exhausting and unappealing.
Fortunately, they only provide the basis for the plot and leave enough space for the other, really good characters / actors.
But I will not even go to this great place on the first season.

So we come to season 2:

She plays in the sixties in a church led sanatorium called Briarcliff.
The drama series components were increased in the second season again, just like the madness.
Nazis, aliens, serial killers, nuns, Anne Frank, zombie mutants and the devil himself give the jack in the hand.
When one hears so, one would think that you are in the latest Mel Brooks movie and here is that just hit times properly on the Lachmuskel.
This of course is not true because AHS Asylum remains with very few exceptions until the end extremely seriously and manages to bring all these under one roof alleged mischief without being completely stripped.
I can not say enough superlatives to unpack, to be fair this season actually.
The insanity leads the spring, and he does it damn well.
The French song "Dominique", which is constantly played to the occupants of Briarcliff, or bowing to Glee in the form of "The Name Game" are only a part of this madness, which makes especially AHS Asylum that.

The actors give themselves, as opposed to the first season of his chance, but consistently convincing.
These would Franka Potente as "Anne Frank?" Lily Rabe as "Sister Mary Eunice" and last but not least, the magnificent Jessica Lange as "Sister Jew / Judy".

Gorehounds come at their expense, although the pace is more leisurely and really there is not much action, but the effects are used sparingly for really well done and also do not spare the lifeblood.

I have deliberately kept my review short and sweet, and not gespoilert little betrayed.
Look at AHS Asylum, the part is really great - no questions asked!

I do not belong to the people who throw 9/10-Wertungen around, but this series really deserves it.

I'm a huge fan of Japanese 'golden age' films

I loved "Twilight Samurai" and "Hidden Blade" as throwbacks to that era, but I am not really on top of the recent spate of japanese horror films (although I did see and like "Audition").
I'm not at all into martial arts, slasher films nor most Hong Kong films, but I try to stay abreast of more of the serious films that make it over here to American screens. The upcoming "Curse of the Golden Flower" looks like it may be good - although I haven't liked Zhang Yimou's big commercial epics - not to mention he can fall prey (like many Chinese filmmakers) to hokey melodrama. But when he's 'on' - he's pretty good (I'm really sorry I missed "Riding Alone for A Thousand Miles" when it was playing in theaters a few months ago).

Westerns and Horror Flicks

Two obvious genres: 1) the western of today is way different from those of the 50s and earlier. Obviously, they are more truthful, albeit more subtle and show a compassion toward American Indians; and 2) the horror films of yesterday (1930s-40s) are more subtle and more engaging than those movies of the same genre made today and in the 1980s.
