Fresh off the latest episode of American Horror Story Asylum, entitled “I Am Anne Frank Pt. 1”, we were impressed to find this great short video of the costumes for FX‘s coolest, freakiest, and oddly style-wise series created by master minds Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk.
Lou Eyrich takes us through Briarcliff Manor and the men and women inhabiting its walls. From the stern Sister Joan brilliantly played by Jessica Lange to the patients in the ward, Eyrich does a fantastic job at conjuring the realm in which the show inhabits.
Set in 1964, the show is a roller coaster of emotions that has departed from its haunted house roots and gone into the stratosphere of horror and things that haunt touching on everything from religious corruption, aliens, Nazis, demonic possession, genetic experimentation, sexual identity, mutations, and the true to life horrors of treating those deemed mentally ill in the 1960s.
Really, it’s everything we’ve ever wanted in a TV show and more, with every new week offering a more horrifying piece to the puzzle. The best thing is that the writing team for the show kept to heart the fact that the things that have happened in real life are far more terrifying than any monster with a face mask made of bloody skin. But hey, if that’s your jive, they have one of those too….
