Adam Whybray's rating of the film American Horror Story: Asylum

3.5 stars. Less Blumhouse than 'Murder House' and more unhinged 1950s melodrama. The narrative approach continues to be 'and then x and then x and then x' but it sometimes reaches such ludicrous heights as to almost be transcendent! There's absolutely no regards to good taste nor a sensitive depiction of mental illness... but as a uniquely diagnostic American cultural artifact it is utterly essential!
