American Horror Story: Asylum "Nor'easter" Review: Thar She Blows (PHOTO RECAP)

American Horror Story S02E03: "Nor'easter"

Too soon! Ryan Murphy, shame on you for capitalizing on the tragic disaster of Hurricane Sandy just to score a few ratings points!!! How craven and tasteless! Some terrible things should NOT be exploited for entertainment's sake, Ryan Murphy! But of all things, Sandy? Don't you know all the destruction, terror, and heartache that otherworldly storm has left in its wake? How dare you create an entire episode set during a terrible northeastern storm? How dare you. Haha just kidding guys, I know how television works, this episode of American Horror Story was filmed months ago. But I will admit that "Nor'easter"—a terrific episode!—made me feel even more scared and anxious due to the news and images coming out of the Eastern Seaboard these days. Like, yeah, the storm in this episode was merely a backdrop for some other insanely terrifying things, but the pounding rain and lightning added this extra layer of claustrophobia and tension to situations that were already hecka terrifying on their own. Plus, now I am pretty sure that Hurricane Sandy MIGHT have been caused by aliens? Hear me out. Aliens might have caused Hurricane Sandy. Let's debate about it later, but for now, let's talk about "Nor'easter!"

Three's a pattern! For the third week in a row the cold open was about that modern-day horny couple getting terrorized by Bloody Face. After stabbing one-armed Adam Levine a ton, Bloody Face busted down the door and came after the lady from Step Up 1: Not Yet 2 the Streets.

Fortunately, one-armed Adam Levine not only DIDN'T die from his stab wounds, he was strong enough to get up (with one arm, which isn't easy, guys!) and charge at Bloody Face and, I don't know, squirt him in the eye with his bloody stump? It worked!

So that's when Channing Tatum's boo stabbed Bloody Face A LOT and then picked up one-armed Adam Levine and tried to escape.

Except, whoops! They immediately encountered not one, but TWO MORE Bloody Faces!

And they were much lazier! One just straight-up murdered them with a handgun. R.I.P. Horny Recognizable Guest Stars.

Obviously the other two Bloody Faces were a couple of teenage boys, but they were clearly in some kind of Bloody Face cult? Or just copycats? I don't know. Also, they claimed that they were just getting revenge on the girl for having stabbed "Joey." So yeah, cool circle of friends.

Except then the first Bloody Face came out and charged at them and his mask was MUCH better than theirs and the guys definitely didn't seem to think this was "Joey" at all, and they got all scared! You live and you learn, Bloody Face copycats. Anyway, I don't know what is going on in this plotline AT ALL. It just got so complicated!

So anyway, back in 1964, Sister Mary Eunice, who was definitely a demon now, delivered the morning mail and newspaper to Sister Jude. Except, the newspaper was from 15 years ago?

Sister Jude was NOT happy about this! Personally I was curious as to how a 15-year-old newspaper could be in such good condition, but that's me, someone who has NOT accidentally murdered a bicyclist and evidently covered up said murder before joining a nunnery. No, Sister Jude was mostly upset about the residual guilt-type stuff.

So anyway, as we learned during a very weird and sexy scene in which Sister Jude kneaded dough in front of Dr. Thredson, A BIG STORM WAS COMING. We could tell that Sister Jude was already pretty rattled about the newspaper incident because when Dr. Thredson was coming at her with accusations of doing a bad job of running the asylum, she mostly took it well and assured him that she's a nice lady and to prove it she was throwing a movie night for all the patients. The idea was that a frightening Christian horror film called Sign of the Cross would distract everyone from the lightning.

When Sister Eunice made the announcement that there'd be a movie night, a character who in the credits is listed only as The Mexican immediately began accusing her of certain things in Spanish. Certain VERY TRUE things.

Oh, this is probably a good time to mention that Lily Rabe was SO GOOD in this episode. Every scene she had was amazing. I liked that the demon was 1,000 percent more interesting and charismatic than Sister Eunice. Honestly, I am against demons in general, but if this demon wanted to stick around for a while I would not be mad.

It was great when she busted out firetruck-red lipstick and tried to get Sister Jude to drink sacramental wine knowing full well that Sister Jude had been on the wagon ever since she ran over that young girl.

It also made me laugh when Sister Jude forcibly wiped the lipstick off of Sister Eunice's mouth like some kind of angry suburban mom. 1960s nuns, they're just like us!

Meanwhile Dr. Arden was still all curious about the literal bug that had come out of Kit's neck, believing it must be the work of the CIA or the Stasi or the KGB. I'm not sure how he could hold those theories while ALSO believing that Kit was a serial killer, but whatever. Not a lot of people on this show are really thinking things through in general.

But yeah, so much neck poking! Ugh, terrible. Sorry Kit.

Meanwhile, the Spanish-language yammerings of a legally committed patient were just too much for Sister Demon to handle, so she went and took care of business!

Oops, sorry, The Mexican. You did not deserve that.

But in a typical lemonade-from-lemons situation, Sister Demon suddenly had some new eatin's for the backyard monsters!

This was the episode in which we finally got to see more of what they looked like, and the answer was... they looked like very dirty humans! Kinda disappointing, right?

Oh, and then this happened:

Umm okay! Hey by the way, if you aren't bothered by violence against women, staged or otherwise, this was probably a good episode for you! For me though, I was kinda upset about these elements. I don't know, call me a prude. I like being scared, but some of this stuff really unsettled me. Just being honest!

So then Lana approached Dr. Thredson in the common room and tried to get his help in exonerating her.

She gave him the name and address of her illicit lesbian lover, who as we all know was either super dead or, because she was played a recognizable actress, not dead and will pop up later in a surprising manner. Who's to say? Either way, it looked like Dr. Thredson was one of the good guys. Which means he probably isn't, but still. Lana was stoked!

At this point Sister Jude's downward spiral really got the gentle nudge it needed to get going. First it began with a ghostly phone call from the little dead girl herself!

But then Sister Jude found a pair of busted glasses on her desk and really fell apart. Who had put them there? Were they imagined? Or did Sister Demon arrange all this? Tons of questions, in other words, but only one answer: DRINKIN'!

Oh man. So then a scene happened that was SO GOOD it basically guaranteed Jessica Lange another Emmy. Sad, over-the-top, manic, scary, florid, and straight-up bizarre, Sister Jude introduced the movie night looking a hot mess and wobbling all over the place.

Just crying and laughing, and holding people's faces while they gave each other the side-eye. And then at the end she walked off nattering something like, "Now I'm gonna go find that goddamn Mexican." WHAT ON EARTH? I was laughing, sorry. I watched this scene several times in a row, it was THAT GOOD.

Oh, and p.s., I loved how a theater full of insane people reminded me of my experiences at movie theaters in real life. Just a lot of senseless yammering. SORRY SO GRUMPY. But seriously, be quiet at the movies, everyone.

Anyway, these people were yammering on about whatever. Haha just kidding, they were talking about how Dr. Thredson paid Clea Duvall a visit and found a tiny blood stain and therefore knew with certainty that not only had she definitely been murdered, but it was definitely by Bloody Face.

My first thought was, "LIKELY STORY, BLOODY FACE." Because come on, Dr. Thredson is now the #1 candidate for being Bloody Face, right? But either way, Lana was now suddenly VERY regretful of having pinned everything on Kit. In fact, she seemed even more bothered about having been wrong than the fact that her girlfriend might have been skinned alive? Must be an ego thing.

Anyway, now that everyone was distracted by storms, movies, or booze, it was time for our four favorite patients to make ANOTHER escape attempt!

Their escape was immediately cut off by an orderly, so that's when Shelley (who is the best) offered to "distract" the orderly so the other three could escape. Total hero move, seriously.

Meanwhile Dr. Arden was having an interesting evening:

Yeah, I don't know either. Just muttering something about "whoo-ers" and blaspheming and all that.

While still hot on the trail of "that goddamn Mexican," Sister Wino was having an interesting evening of her own. After following a shadowy figure that looked distinctively inhuman and partly slimy, she suddenly came face to face with one of Kit's old besties!

Dang! Guess Kit DIDN'T hallucinate them aliens. But also, I loved the implication that aliens had caused the thunderstorm as this huge distraction so they could somehow rescue Kit from the asylum? It all suggested this much more elaborate master plan on the aliens' part. I love this show so much!

So in sort of an effed-up Shawshank Redemption situation, our heroes made it out of the death tunnel and into the rainy wilderness. But their jubilation was short-lived!

BECAUSE MONSTERS!!!!

So yeah, these things were definitely just humanoid cannibals. I don't know why I was hoping for some Resident Evil-style abominations, but whatever. Still pretty scary! No wonder Kit, Grace, and Lana ran directly back into the asylum.

Oh, and just FYI:

The More You Know! [shooting star] But yeah, Pepper is amazing. In this part she asked to go to the bathroom by pleading "PEPPER PEE!"

So then Sister Eunice found Sister Jude passed out in a drunken stupor and woke her up to deal with the possible escape attempts.

It made me laugh that this demon probably chose the wrong asylum to haunt. I bet it was all bummed to not be the star horror attraction at this place. Demons are nothing if not spotlight-hogging drama queens, you know?

Before Sister Jude arrived to shut off the movie projector, Kit, Lana, and Grace were back in their seats sopping wet, just like everyone else, and it was not suspicious AT ALL. But yeah, now the only three suspected escapees were Shelley, Pepper, and The Mexican.

As for Shelley, she was having a pretty rough evening. After re-enacting a key scene from The Brown Bunny on an orderly, she had a run-in with Dr. Arden and he was somewhat less fun to be around.

Yeah, hard to watch. Shelley did eventually break away long enough to laugh at Dr. Arden's tiny penis, but then he knocked her out with a paperweight and I was back to being bummed/disturbed. And then THIS happened:

Poor Shelley! That is truly horrible and despicable! The strangest part about this show is that half the time its over-the-top horrors verge on comedy, but the other half of the time its horrors are so upsetting and off-putting that it makes you feel genuinely bad. This was one of those parts. Still though, overall this episode was a real treat. Scary, surprising, and unrelentingly insane, I'm amazed and elated at how much more I like this season with every new episode. So far so good and I mean SO GOOD.


QUESTIONS:

... Okay, so WHAT is happening with the modern-day Bloody Faces?

... Are you more sympathetic toward Sister Jude now that she has Issues?

... Is Dr. Arden the most repellent character on television?

... Is Pepper the sexiest character on television?

"I liked that the demon was 1,000 percent more interesting and charismatic than Sister Eunice. Honestly, I am against demons in general, but if this demon wanted to stick around for a while I would not be mad."

Every time Evil Eunice shows up I smile...cause she's AWESOME! I'm convinced that she is the best character in this season, until...

"Oh man. So then a scene happened that was SO GOOD it basically guaranteed Jessica Lange another Emmy. Sad, over-the-top, manic, scary, florid, and straight-up bizarre, Sister Jude introduced the movie night looking a hot mess and wobbling all over the place."

...Jessica Lange shows up and says, "Not so fast young whipper snapper!". Frankly, I don't care which/who is better...they're both beyond fantastic.

"My first thought was, "LIKELY STORY, BLOODY FACE." Because come on, Dr. Thredson is now the #1 candidate for being Bloody Face, right?"

He the unobvious choice so it's obviously him. But if it is, I'll point back to this scene as one of those that really bug me about the "surprise" reveals. If Thredson is Bloody Face, there's ZERO reason for him to go back to the house since he knows exactly what happened already. This isn't quite a Carrie and Saul level of cheating...but cheating none the less

"So in sort of an effed-up Shawshank Redemption situation, our heroes made it out of the death tunnel and into the rainy wilderness."

Since they didn't even pretend like this wasn't an "homage" to Shawshank, should I presume that all the scenes and themes they've flat out stolen are also an "homage"?

"The strangest part about this show is that half the time its over-the-top horrors verge on comedy, but the other half of the time its horrors are so upsetting and off-putting that it makes you feel genuinely bad."

I just remembered something I wanted to say about last week's show. Remember when BK was about to kill Lana's love, the school teacher? She said, "no, the children will never understand"! I have to say I taught college for many years and worrying about my students when I'm being threatened with being skinned alive is the last thing I would do. I actually thought that was kind of funny. Anyone else?

So,with the Storm of the Century heading straight toward them,am I to understand, Monsignor. "Not only am I going to be the Pope,I'm going to have the most famous .best, gosh darn nuthut in the world!" Howard isn't on duty! A violent Nor'easter is about to slam them and He decided to take the night off, call in a sick day?..leaving 2 Nuns in charge??...I find his absence suspicious...I'm wondering if he's BloodyFace? And Dr.Alden/Mengele just does his dirty work (mask making etc..).He just seems a little to calm about a Mad Scientist working for him,he definitely shut Sister Jude down quick when she tried to voice a complaint! ....

Could be totally off base, but I friend and I reached the conclusion that the "monsters" are Frankensteins made by Dr. Arden. That being said, we believe Bloody Face to be one of those Frankensteins and still alive terrorizing people in modern day (it's been 50 years, so even younger characters like Kit could still be alive in modern day and who's to say how ageing/life span works for Frankensteins). This would also, of course, make Shelley's name a nod to Mary and Percy Shelley.

I don't really like this season yet. I loved season one. It is not really scary, at least not in the same way season one was scary. Remember the infantata? I am not really thrilled about aliens and demons either. I get that it is sort of a completely new show, this season, but it haven't caught my interest the way the first season did. Yet.

It's got my interest, but I agree, for some reason this season does not scare me/freak me out like last season. It could be because after last season where I'd never really seen "freaky" done so well, I'm harder to freak out now, or it could be because this season just isn't as scary.

BTW fantastic review from Price.

So funny and honest praise where praise belongs.

- Don't know. Maybe crazy descendants of Dr Arden and Shelley?

- Strangely YES. She will become an inmate herself, isn't she?

- YES. Repellent is a fantastic choice of words.

Loved this episode so much! No matter how many times they use storm in horror movies or thrillers or whatever - I still love it!

what was up with all the fast cuts and edits. especially the first half. 20 cuts and edits for simple dialogue and at such a rapid pace, was the director on coke?

I meant to say I found this episode to be pretty slow in the middle, although of course I realize that the storm outside was meant as a supplement to the slide into insanity of those that are supposed to be in charge (while the insane were relatively calm by comparison), but the beginning and end of the episode were amazing and incredibly fast paced.

I suspect the deal with the modern day bloody faces will all make sense at some point, but for now obviously we're just going to have to wait and see -- it'll be some atrocity that Dr. Arden created in his search to push science to the limits and create monsters, and the humanoids outside seem pretty clearly to be his abominations. Freaky, though -- something right out of 28 Days Later, save that they actually eat people, not just kill or turn them.



Yeah, those scenes with Shelly and Dr. Arden were pretty hard to watch -- and yes he is quite repellent, which is what makes James Cromwell so awesome! Pepper is amazing as well.



And no, I'm not more sympathetic towards Sister Jude.

I loved the episode but a few questions come to mind 1) Are Sisters Jude and Mary Eunice the only nuns who work at the asylum? 2)Where do nuns buy their sexy underwear? 3) What on earth was Dr. Arden doing to that statue? I half expected him to try to become intimate with it. 5) Okay, so Bloody Face kills and skins his victims, and yet his M.O. is to leave only a tiny bit of blood. How can he be so tidy with so much carnage?

Great questions! 1. I saw other nuns at movie night. 2. the store. 3. arden has issues, probably a mother flashback is in the works. 4. you skipped 4. 5. I suspect Bloody FAce has a serious case of OCD. ha ha!

Excellent episode. AHS standards are just, insanely high.



I was wondering after this episode, and one thing stuck with me. Granted, this is a side note on the show itself. We can all agree that AHS is basically a really long movie, around 10 hours long, right? So these guys, produce 4 movies' worth of a show in the space of more or less a year, and with insane amounts of quality with casting, production values, writing, what have you.



Given this, I would really like to know how on earth Hollywood justifies spreading sagas of movies through a decade if need be. You sometimes have to wait 2 or 3 years to see a sequel of a movie, and a lot of times these movies are also crap. Whilst shows like this, maintain high standards of quality throughout 10 hours of picture, and just get on with it. Go figure huh.

Best moment in the episode: when Sister Eunice with the demon eyes looked into the camera for a split second. She did this small head turn at the same time which was very spooky. You're right, she was excellent in this episode. You could see that she enjoyed playing the demon possessed nun.

A serial killer, aliens and backyard zombie-monsters? Super-combo!

It feels like Chlo Sevigny is being typecast as the lady who gives BJs. The Brown Bunny, Hit & Miss, and now this show.

The transformation of Naomi Grossman into Pepper is amazing. Make-up is one crazy invention. Pepper might not be the sexiest character on TV, but she is definitely the most covert sexiest actress on TV.

Ok to begin, I shall answer your questions:-



1. I think they are making the modern days characters all modern horror cliches

- idiot couples who indulged in having horny sex in dangerous places always ended up being killed

- idiot teenagers dressed up like killers and ended up being killed (e.g scary movies)

.... more cliches to be unfolded

2. Nah, she would turn up to be meaner and crazier

3. Ugh absolutely, chopping off someone's legs to justify his small penis? Gosh, talk about inadequacies

4. LOL, I won't put her in a sexy category, but if that's your kind of thing, by all means.



I actually didn't like this episode as much as the last two mostly because it was too packed with horror (aliens, cannibals, demon, psycho killer etc...) the only thing missing are zombies and vampires and I felt sorry for almost all the characters.



However, I do love your review, it made me laugh amidst all the horror. I also loved the ending where Sister Jude said there were three missing people (which we immediately would have assumed them to be Kit, Lana and the French girl whom I suddenly couldn't remember her name) but ended up being Pepper, The Mexican and poor poor Shelly. I also love your depiction of what Dr Arden did to Mother Mary's statue... I was also like Waaaat????

Now that we know that Sister Jude's car accident murder happened 15 years ago, I'm a little surprised that they didn't CGI her face. I mean, I know that not as much time has passed as it did in the first season when they CGI-ed her face, but 15 years is still a long time, and someone her age would have been noticeably younger 15 years ago. But maybe since they keep flashing back to it they figured it would be easier not to? I don't know...

I look forward to this show every week... mesmerizing. Lily Rabe (couldn't stand her last season) is now one of my favorite characters. Jessica Lange cracked me up when she entered the movie room, "sit down! sit down!!!" lol, truly a joy to watch her craft this character in such an interesting way (accent, facial expressions, gestures).



#4- I do wonder why they chose to alter a perfectly good looking woman for the role of Pepper. Is it less offensive? Maybe it's purely creative.

I kinda wondered that as well. I mean,in AHS Season 1, they hired Jamie Brewer,herself having Down Syndrome,to play a young girl with Down Syndrome.Perhaps microcephaly (a characteristic being a "pinhead" is more extreme of an illness? Who knows with this show...lol...

Ok, gotta get this outta the way first: Asylum full of mentally deranged people, check. Storm that will make them anxious and/or violent, check. Play a movie about killing people, because that's a good idea, che....oh, wait.



I guess I'm with you, I'm enjoying the ride. Something about this season is too busy for me so far, though. While I'm glad that we're treated to more feminine bare-ass than the Dylan McDermot man-ass we were overloaded with last season (and two blowjob scenes so far this season, dang FX, you live to be on the FCC's watch-list, huh?), I don't feel enough focus on any particular thing to work up a good fright about it. It's an inventive concept to combine aliens with demons, but I'm guessing there's a reason it hasn't been done before, and for me it's because they just don't seem to go well together. There's demons.....religious stuff....there's aliens.....sci-fi stuff. Do aliens have demons (and angels)? Can the demon possess the aliens or torment them too? Can the aliens anally probe a demon? Is a fallen angel who was there at the beginning of everything aware that there are aliens? Hey, if they're going to combine these two plot devices, these are the questions my mind wants answered. And somehow that detracts from being really creeped out by either one of them. It's like Alien vs. Predator, Freddy vs. Jason....I'm just so star-struck by the ensemble cast of monsters that I'm not properly scared.



Finally, about the woman-abuse this season being so disconcerting....I agree, and I think it's intentional. I think the show-runners know that weirds people out and it's all part of their plan to throw as much shocking stuff at the audience as they can. Like the sudden baby-parts in last season's debut that had us all going "WTF, did not expect that, gross, and yeah, I'm creeped out." I do like that a lot of this year's "horror" is psychological and just born of really messed up humans. That's kind of in contrast to last season when the horror seemed mainly about the supernatural stuff. (And speaking of supernatural, I'm mixing my fandoms, but there is about 5% of me that keeps expecting Sam and Dean Winchester to jump out from behind a curtain at any moment and kill the nun-demon.)

Aliens vs Demons. This could be a new franchise. Great review Price. It really almost makes me want to watch this. Almost. How exactly did the doc amputate both of what's her name's legs with, no nurse, and no surgical team. There is no way he could have done that alone. Maybe the Aliens are helping him, maybe he is an alien. Maybe he is magic. that is something that they don't have this year it seems. Magic. However, that is a pretty dick move, all she said was he had a tiny wanker, that is not something you cut someone's legs off for.

The demon sister almost makes me want to watch this show. I love possession movies, they are always hilarious and bring the funny. However, how is the demon going to let the doc slap her. That doesn't seem very demon like, especially for one that can apparently conjure up a 15 year old paper, and place glasses on Jude's desk. Oh and stab a Mexican, because that is what this episode of random needed.

As for modern day bloody face. Maybe it is one of the Doc's creations, those pics aside from not having a mask, kind of look like Bloody Face in a way. Because, though I am not watching, none of these character seem like they could have turned into that. Also, whomever it is would be like 110. So apparently bloody face can live forever. Maybe the doc really is magic. Maybe it is the Aliens creation, maybe, maybe that is what happens when they anally probe everyone, they harvest your feces and create a giant poo monster that needs to stab people. And then has to have a mask because, no one wants to look at a giant pile of poo when they are getting stabbed to death. Also this would explain how bloody face could survive Adam's miraculous recovery. As for the kids, bored psychotic teens need a hobbie. They decide to kill thrill seekers in the asylum, but then they run into poo monster bloody face. This show is genius. In that if genius meant really really dumb.



?'s

See above



No, Jude basically kidnapped and had a woman tortured and committed basically because that woman likes girls. So Jude can get probed, harassed by a demon, set on fire, I wouldn't care.



More repellent than Honey Boo Boo? Wait does that count as a character or a sad state of affairs for our society as a whole? What about Aaron from Revolution? He is an annoyingly useless kind of repellent. Lori is still pretty repellent. Then there is Clay. Nope, I am going to have to go with Jess from New Girl.



Um, no dude, ew.

You know what is most annoying about you? Not that you feel the need to write fucking novels over and over again like you are so enlightened and like everyone should want to read your opinions (although that's incredibly annoying too) but that you do it even for shows you don't fucking watch. Then you act all morally superior like oh I haven't the time to watch a silly show like this but this and this and this almost make me want to lower myself to the level of you people and watch it. But I won't cuz I'm so superior and this is silly. But I will write novels anyways. You're a douche. Seriously get a life.

I agree with you about a lot of this. The violence against women has gotten pretty intense, but I guess they are trying to make you think about how religion and that time period's culture oppressed women in general. It's also funny you should say that the show is so hilarious. I feel like I spend one minute laughing my ass off at some random alien about to eat poor Jessica Lange's face (which by the way, she just wakes up in the bed after as if nothing happened??) and the next I'm so disturbed I wanna shut the show off because of Dr. Arden and his sadistic shenanigans.

She was drunk so she probably thought she imagined it. Or maybe it wiped her memory? Or it possessed her, and we now have two possessed nuns, one with demons, the other with aliens.

My money is on the Monsignor as Bloody Face. He has the power to pull all the strings (i.e. frame Kit as BF) while killing during all that off-screen time.

Excellent review, as always. I really enjoyed this episode and they are doing a lot of off the wall stuff.



Also, I've Googled pics of the actress who plays Pepper & you picked the MOST flattering one, by far.
