There are always plot rumors out there for highly anticipated movies and TV shows, but when the possibility of a circus/freak show-themed American Horror Story popped up, it was just too good to brush off.  Even though that made the official announcement more of a told-you-so type of thing, it’s hard to imagine anything else topping that concept.  Hit the jump for more on American Horror Story season 4.

FX’s American Horror Story has already covered the topics of ghosts, serial killers, the criminally insane, Nazis and aliens in such creepy locales as a haunted house, insane asylum and mad scientist’s laboratory.  Season three, recently revealed with the title of American Horror Story: Coven, will center on witches and take place partially in New Orleans.  Throughout the second season, it was speculated that creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk would be taking on witches in the upcoming season, based on hints they scattered throughout the Asylum episodes; but this storyline has been in the works for quite a while.  Hit the jump for more.

We’re getting down to the wire and running out of living characters on FX’s American Horror Story: Asylum.  Tonight we bid fond farewells to three more souls: one was a surprise, two of them died a second time and one of them was simply brushed aside with nary an explanation.  This episode was also a bit more toned down than we’re used to (well, for this show anyway) so I’m expecting them to lay it all on the table in next week’s season finale.

What better way to kick off 2013 than with a return to FX’s American Horror Story: Asylum?  Tonight’s episode spent a little bit of time getting us reacquainted with our favorite patients and caregivers of Briarcliff, but quickly got back into the crazy head games, battle between good and evil and even threw in a few surprises.  If you were sharp-eyed, you may have even picked up on a teaser about the plot line in the third season of American Horror Story.

Well, we’ve reached the mid-season finale of FX’s American Horror Story: Asylum and what a bloody and cliff-hangery way to end 2012! Not only did we get some carryover from guest star Ian McShane (who was phenomenal last week), but Frances Conroy also featured in tonight’s story. But those weren’t the biggest surprises as we were left with a shocking cliff-hanger that will have to wait until 2013 for a resolution.

No one does Christmastime quite like FX’s American Horror Story: Asylum. The first season featured quite the climax with the Harmon family gathered round the Christmas tree; the feel-goods are not so joyous this time around. Featuring Ian McShane (Deadwood) as a deranged Santa Claus, tonight’s episode wasn’t just a fantastic addition to the series so far, but a stand-alone dark holiday classic.

I may be crazy, but tonight’s episode of American Horror Story: Asylum might just be the best yet. It was pulpy, it was soapy, it was creepy and gory; everything you want this show to be! Perhaps it was the demise of one of this season’s characters or the continuing downward spiral of everyone else on the show. Maybe it was the return of one of my favorite actors from season one, in a bold role that looks like one hell of a lot of fun to play! Whatever the trigger, it worked.
