'AHS: Asylum' Cast Talks Season Two
What is sanity? What is insanity?
According to the stars of American Horror Story: Asylum, that's the question season two will attempt to answer. Joining newly minted Emmy winner Jessica Lange in running the 1960's-set sanitarium are Zachary Quinto, Lily Rabe, James Cromwell and Joseph Fiennes, while Sarah Paulson, Chloe Sevigny and season one standout Evan Peters play the inmates.
"Every freakin' thing you could be scared of, they're throwing at you [this season]," Evan says in a new behind-the-scenes featurette. He adds, "I get beat up a lot in this show. Instead of torturing people, I'm the one being tortured. And I've gotta say, I don't like it. I don't like it one bit."
A second video, featuring footage from the new season, has also been released (see below), but it's the BTS clip that might also give us a glimpse at one of this season's biggest mysteries: aliens. "I don't think people tune in to the show because they want My Dinner With Andre," creator Ryan Murphy told EW. "I think they want to be scared. I'm just writing what I would like to see. I'm scared of aliens and I'm scared of Nazis and I'm scared of nuns. So it's the perfect stew of horror and fear."
It is during the closing minutes of the video where I think I glimpsed an extra-terrestrial [click here and judge for yourself]. So press play on the video up top and check in to the Asylum!
American Horror Story: Asylum premieres October 17 at 10 p.m. on FX.
