"The Coat Hanger" boasts controversial themes, effective scares, well-played justification of the illogical, and noteworthy performances all around.
Perpetual man-baby Thredson is back on the loose, so mommies, padlock your chastity belts.
If there's one thing American Horror Story: Asylum excels at, it's making the illogical seem positively pedestrian.
I'm starting to think I was raised Catholic specifically so that I might to enjoy American Horror Story: Asylum. That would certainly make more sense than any other reason. That would also explain why those aliens impregnated me.
Some unexpected alliances are formed and there appears to be some hope.
Was it me, or was this kind of a good one?
I have to say, this was probably the most delightfully sacrilegious episode of AHS yet. We had a baptism after fairly graphic abortion and, just to wrap things up, a live crucifixion.
The main surprise continues to simply just be this show's trashy audacity, and "The Coat Hanger" found new and gross (and wonderful) ways to keep us gasping.
I thought that "I Am Anne Frank: Part 2" was insane, but "The Coat Hanger" just surpassed it, me thinks!
Per usual, The Coat Hanger was an episode that featured fantastic performances (welcome back Mr. McDermott!) and demented subject matter that never reaches excessive amount, because in American Horror Story: Asylum, there is no such thing as excess.
The performances on American Horror Story are so well done across the board, but Jessica Lange and Sarah Paulson stood out tonight.
As always, we truly have no idea where it's going to wind up, but as the season starts to head into the home stretch, we find all our earlier complaints and eye-rolling to be fading away.
Though it probably wasn't everyone's cup of tea, last week's 'Unholy Night' was a frequently hysterical, sometimes disturbing and morbidly single-minded example of all the things American Horror Story: Asylum does well.
