“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?
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose…
Wow, these BTS videos are getting posted faster and faster by the American Horror Story Asylum team. This is a really fun one- and we especially like getting a better look at the aliens! Check it out below, this is well worth a watch (spoilers, of course). Enjoy!
We especially like getting a better look at the aliens! Those long, spider-ish limps are creepy as hell. Wonder when we’ll get to see a glimpse of more? Here are some screencaps from the above featurette, in case you need reminding… or a slightly better look!

If you start to ‘jones’ for American Horror Story Asylum like I do between episodes (I start getting seriously twitchy when I wake up Thursday) then you can find some temporary solace here. I especially enjoy when they do an “Inside The Asylum” post-show breakdown, with trivia, interviews, and all kinds of cool stuff. Here’s a great reason to bookmark the page and check back regularly: I can tell you these post-show featurettes of each episode were NOT included on the Blu-ray set for Season One. Maybe I’m spoiled because AMC has done it with every Blu-ray set for Breaking Bad. You can find them online (I assume), but I really think if they’re going to put out a Blu-ray set, which sometime put a BIG dent in my entertainment budget if they’re not on sale (example: retail price for the American Horror Story Season One Blu-ray set was at least fifty bucks-if you see it on sale, grab ’em, because Amazon had them on sale for a week or so–then the price rocketed back up without warning). So! Here’s that link:
A lot of the info goes up here on Horror Boom, but FX does it like clockwork. If I find more FX links, I’ll put them up in posts. I’ll definitely give you a heads-up if they post a clip from an upcoming episode. Oh, and I’ll try not to let Thanksgiving get in the way, but I can’t promise the same for Hitchcock , opening Friday! Enjoy the site, and your evening.
