Someone Really Didn't Like Therapy: "American Horror Story" Trailer

Asylums always get such a bad rap in movies and television. No one ever seeks help for mental disease at an asylum and then goes onto a healthy and well-adjusted life. No, no, it's always the case that the patient is wrongfully imprisoned because of all the people who have ever thought they saw dead people or talked to demons, the protagonist always just happens to be the one who is telling the truth and isn't really crazy. That's statistically improbably, unless asylums really were designed to imprison those of us who can actually see the truth.

Of course if you believe that, they're going to take you to an asylum next, because they can't have people who know the truth on the outside.

And the staff! It's not enough to imprison those who are actually sane, these stories always have to have the worst staff this side of the Bates Motel. If you ever told someone that you worked at an asylum, their natural response due to entertainment conditioning would be: "oh, right, so how many people do you electrocute each week?"

It's funny that Scientology doesn't believe in psychiatry, all while being composed primarily of celebrities in the entertainment industry. Really, given the scripts they read, isn't that a natural conclusion for them to come to?

Here's a new teaser trailer for "American Horror Story" which you may have guessed by now involves an asylum.

Why's it always got to be nuns?

    I have any number of beefs with Disqus, but HTML does work (see?) On the minus side, you don't get a preview, but then again you can come back and edit your post (if you're registered, which obviously you are.)

    P.S. I love your avatar.

    "Shutter Island" was a nice change of pace.

    "No one ever seeks help for mental disease at an asylum and then goes onto a healthy and well-adjusted life."

    Walter Bishop tells me otherwise (well-adjusted being a relative term).

  • JenVegas

    Ugh maannnn I love this show but it creeps me the fuck out. And I never have anyone to watch it with me. Scary nightmares for another season I guess. It's too good NOT to watch.

    As much as I dislike Chloe Sevigny and her shtick, EVAN PETERS!!!

  • Jezzer

    I like her acting just fine. It's her real life Sevigniness that gets on my nerves.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    SQUEEEEEE!!!! That looks delightful. Delightfully twisted.
