'American Horror Story: Asylum' premiere review: Boo! As in, were you well-scared, or disappointed?

In part because it involves people associated with The New Normal and The Voice, the new season of American Horror Story, subtitled Asylum, is automatically scarier than the first one. Co-creator Ryan Murphy, the man behind the garish laughs of New Normal, has enlisted Adam Levine as one of his horror-show victims, and just watching the stubbly singer-scarecrow feign sex with his character’s new bride (Jenna Dewan Tatum) was effectively, thoroughly unnerving.

Glee producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk screened their new October drama American Horror Story to TV critics at the Summer TV Press Tour in Los Angeles on Tuesday night.

If you have been wanting to hear the erstwhile Tami Taylor say, “I can be kinky,” this show may be for you. Then again, it may be the show that peels back your skull and makes you run bellowing from the room. READ FULL STORY
