New American Horror Story Asylum Official Featurette – Makeup/Gore Effects for Face-Chewed-Off Scene in “Unholy Night’ – Watch Behind The Scenes Here!

“Unholy Night” was pretty much gold from start to finish, but I especially loved this scene (a flashback from 1963 that shows how Leigh “Psycho Santa” Emerson got tossed in ‘the hole’ to start with). I actually thought he’d bitten off part of the poor orderly’s nose,  too. You can tell Ian McShane really sunk his teeth into had fun filming the scene, too. Take a peek!

Looks like the whole crew had fun filming it, too. There were so many great scenes (in fact, I can’t think of any dull moments) in the Christmas episode, and this bit was just the icing on the goddamned cake! I loved the fact that everything went wrong at the worst possible moment. Leigh tells Sister Jude if she won’t take off his shackles, he doesn’t want to be in her shitty picture, she points out that he was thrown in Briarcliff because he went on a killing spree and slaughtered eighteen people from five different families (Jesus!)  and the point of the photo is really to show the general public that he’s locked up and they’re safe from him now, thanks to Briarcliff.  She turns away for a second to snap at  (non-possessed) Sister Mary because she let the photographers in too early by mistake and instead of the nice group photo Sister Jude had planned, Leigh is biting the guys face off and FLASH! CLICK! the photographers rush over and take a pic of THAT chaos instead! The only thing missing was a smash cut to a shot of the photo on the front page of the newspaper with some really tasteless headline.

Man, what are we going to do during the three-week hiatus the show is taking after the December 12th episode?
