American Horror Story: Asylum "Unholy Night" Review: A Very Briarcliff Xmas (PHOTO RECAP)

American Horror Story S02E08: "Unholy Night"

What are your most treasured holiday traditions? Sipping hot cocoa at the Christmas tree farm just before cutting down your very own Douglas Fir? Braving mall traffic to find that perfect gift for your special someone? Traversing the neighborhood and serenading the block with a selection of festive carols? Murdering upwards of five families for little to no reason? Well, it takes all kinds, but for the most part Christmas-themed entertainment has unfairly neglected the mass murderer angle of this particular holiday, so thank the Baby Jesus and all His pet farm animals for American Horror Story, one of the very few TV series to really and truly GO THERE. That's right, "Unholy Night" found the Briarcliff Asylum in full yuletide spirit, but in my opinion it was not the most heartwarming Christmas episode of a TV show I've ever seen. No, this was actually one of the most deeply unpleasant episodes of the show to date. Bad things happening all over the place and to almost everybody, with very few twists or surprises to break up all those grim proceedings. I love a Christmas episode as much as the next guy and I particularly love Christmas-themed horror (Black Christmas and Silent Night, Deadly Night are movies I would drop anything to watch), but for some reason I didn't love this episode of American Horror Story. If I had to hazard a guess, I think it's because not very much happened, plot-wise, so it felt mostly like a grim, drawn-out exercise in wheel-spinning. On the other hand: Deadwood's Ian McShane was FANTASTIC as a demented Santa-themed psycho. So yeah, there were some bright spots in "Unholy Night." Let's talk about it!

So just from the cold open I had a sneaking suspicion that this episode would be pretty light on story, since we were made to witness at least four different scenes of Ian McShane's psycho character terrorizing innocent people before the opening credits even began. First he straight-up gunned down a Salvation Army Santa in front of a department store, then later he invaded a family's home and opened their presents before waking up the parents and yelling at them a ton.

It wasn't clear if this guy was excited about Christmas (hence dressing up like Santa and yammering on and on about all the traditions) or if he really hated it (choosing to murder families based on their overly elaborate yard decorations). I don't know, but the sight of him tying up a husband and wife in Christmas lights before unceremoniously murdering them seemed pretty on-the-nose to me. Anyway, after a harrowing five minutes of this stuff we got the point: This dude was not well in the head.

So in one of the weirder things this show has ever done, we finally got to see what it's like when a DEMON FROM HELL is in charge of decorating an insane asylum for Christmas. Because there were no Christmas ornaments on hand, Sister Eunice decorated the tree with impromptu alternatives: pee cups, syringes, rubber gloves, dentures, and weirdest of all, locks of the inmates' hair. Who knew demons were so crafty??? [Martha Stewart joke to be added, I'll get back to you on this.]

Anyway, the security guard was sad about shooting the French lady.

Elsewhere, Sister Jude showed up and threatened Sister Eunice with a straight razor. They exchanged tons of acting (one-liners, poses, and strong choices in general) but then got interrupted by Dr. Arden who, though he despised both nuns for different reasons, ended up being Team Demon and had Sister Jude thrown the hell out of there.

Because when a nun threatens to kill you via straight razor, don't bother having them arrested. Just let them leave peacefully. But we could tell by Dr. Arden's conspiratorial tone that he and Sister Eunice would have to kill Sister Jude (as well as that sad security guard because of his loose lips or whatever). Anyway, this whole thing was now turning into an elaborate conspiracy to keep anybody in the outside world from discovering that the Briarcliff was under the control of a Nazi and a demon. [Political joke to be added.]

In a charming flashback we learned that the Santa dude had ruined Christmas the year before by biting someone's face off just before a group photo (and, to Sister Jude's mortification, in front of a newspaper photographer!). So ever since then he'd been kept in 'the hole'.

But because demons are nothing if not rascals, Sister Eunice paid him a visit and offered to give him a brand new, freshly dry-cleaned Santa suit! But would he accept the suit and her implicit endorsement of murder?

Yes, yes he would.

Then in another truly hilarious scene, Dr. Arden presented Sister Eunice with a Christmas gift: Extremely expensive-looking ruby earrings!

Which, first of all, that's just a good gift for a co-worker right there. But the kicker was when she was enjoying her new gift, he explained where he'd gotten them:

HAHA Dr. Arden you crazy for this one! Apparently he'd stolen them from a woman in a death camp who'd been systematically swallowing them over and over in order to hide them from her captors. So yeah, I think the technical term for this gift is "butt rubies." But the really funny part was that Sister Eunice DIDN'T CARE. As it turns out demons are hella into jewelry that comes out of butts. Honestly that makes sense. Dr. Arden was NOT happy that his gag gift (a gift to make someone gag) was actually accepted with gratitude, so he was a little hurt about that. Poor Nazi.

Lana was puking in a bedpan, which seemed to verify many of you guys' theories that she was probably now pregnant with Bloody Face Junior. I may not be a scientist, but how long do you have to be pregnant until morning sickness kicks in? Hadn't this been just a few hours since she escaped from Dr. Thredson's basement? I don't know, I will never know, let's move on to whom Lana was sharing a room with in the infirmary:

Aw, Kit! Sleeping like an angel.

Later Sister Jude asked Mother Superior to let her take back Briarcliff, but the meeting was interrupted when Dr. Arden showed up to declare a truce.

He claimed that he needed Sister Jude to help take down Sister Eunice, which seemed pretty plausible seeing as she had used demon powers to shove him into his beaker garden last week. Sister Jude was not immediately won over by his proposal, but finally agreed that they had a common enemy and she was 'bout it.

Be careful, Sister Jude, he is not very trustworthy!

Then Kit had an obvious dream sequence in which he brought home a Christmas tree and flirted with his pregnant wife about how much he hoped she'd squeeze out a boy-child. But then dream logic dictated that the wife would morph into the French lady and Kit immediately started kissin' on her:

Even though there was no pretense that this was a real thing that was happening, it was still pretty poignant, you know? Kit had had a rough go of it lately, so whatever joy or comfort he could derive from dreams was much deserved.

Leave it to Lana to go and interrupt it!

I have never related to a TV character more than I did to Kit in this moment. Waking up is the worst thing that I ever have to do and that's how EVERY DAY begins.


It made me laugh when the Briarcliff Christmas party was underway and the Monsignor singled out Sister Eunice for doing such a perfect job as the new head of the asylum, and then almost immediately the psycho Santa started stabbing everybody with the Christmas star:

I mean, we already knew the Monsignor was shady, but wouldn't he have even the slightest objection to a mass murderer (who typically strikes on Christmas) being released from solitary confinement and allowed to roam free in a Santa outfit? In my opinion that was a bad call on Sister Eunice's part and should go in her annual evaluation.

After Lana deduced that both she and Kit were being kept at the Briarcliff without anybody in the outside world being aware of it, it was only a matter of time before Dr. Thredson arrived for a reunion.

Like, UGH. Enough, Dr. Thredson. Get a new hobby or something. But yeah, he was there, and apparently he'd burned all traces of his murder dungeon and skin furniture and whatnot, thereby rendering Lana's testimony against him pretty questionable.

At this point Sister Eunice murdered the security guard and I didn't know why, but then I remembered it was because he had been feeling guilty about killing Grace and was going to go to the outside police and Dr. Arden didn't want that. I know, complicated, but here we were anyway: A security guard with a gushing neck wound.

LOVED this:

Haha, even the psycho Santa was taken aback by this incident!

But then we realized why exactly Sister Eunice had had designs on freeing Santa: To somehow arrange for Sister Jude's murder! Because remember when Sister Jude cut a deal with Dr. Arden to take down Sister Eunice? Apparently the plan had mostly to do with sneaking into her old office and sort of chillin' in there until a psycho Santa could come in and try to murder her.

Dr. Arden had BETRAYED Sister Jude! Although, to be fair, maybe it's best not to trust a murderous Nazi mad scientist? In general, but also specifically in this situation.

So yeah. Live and learn, Sister Jude.

Meanwhile Dr. Thredson was threatening to make a new Bloody Face mask out of Lana's face, but Kit had woken from his stupor just in time to bust in there and hit him with a fire extinguisher.

Lana wanted to finish the job, but Kit convinced her to keep him alive so that he could properly take the fall for the crimes he'd committed. Frustrating but sensible!

I liked this part: Dr. Arden decided to feed the French lady to the mutants, but his chore was interrupted by aliens. (I can't believe that is a sentence I wrote. This show!)

Aw, they reclaimed their victim! How charming!

So back in Sister Jude's office, after a super long and not-super-entertaining tussle (which involved Sister Jude getting beaten up, flashbacks, and a caning), Sister Jude finally planted a letter opener in Santa's neck and killed him good.

She looked pretty worse for wear, but all I could think of was, "Were you expecting this NOT to happen?" I mean, Sister Jude knows first hand just how effed up Briarcliff is. It was frankly her bad for coming back in the first place, but also for not bringing a samurai sword with her. At this point I'm holding out for nothing less than a House of Blue Leaves-style massacre up in this joint.

Here was a bad idea! Kit and Lana decided to stash a very-conscious Dr. Thredson in some kind of supply closet behind some old mattresses. A fool-proof plan, basically!

Seeing as Lana herself somehow escaped from legit SHACKLES in a DUNGEON, it's hard to fathom how she thought a necktie gag and a propped-up cot would keep the guy contained, but whatever. We still got five episodes to go, so things can't be TOO easy right now, you know?

Well gang, this episode was weirdly distressing to me, but not the fun type of distress I've come to enjoy. I think there were too many setbacks and too much straightforward brutality for me to truly enjoy myself. When it comes to horror, I'm more about tension and suspense than people being shot in the head or middle-aged women getting beaten senseless. Call me old-fashioned! But "Unholy Night" still had plenty of insanity to make for a particularly memorable holiday episode. Can't wait until this thing becomes the next It's a Wonderful Life, complete with annual Christmas Eve screenings in every household!

ALL RIGHT BYE.


QUESTIONS:

... So how many babies are in Lana right now?

... What will the aliens do with Grace's body?

... Was Ian McShane the scariest Santa you've ever seen (not counting the mall Santas in your childhood photos)?

... Okay now I'm really worried: Pepper wasn't even in the FLASHBACK? WHERE IS SHE?

"Festive memories"

Your "worst" screen cap selection to date. Ewww

"HAHA Dr. Arden you crazy for this one! Apparently he'd stolen them from a woman in a death camp who'd been systematically swallowing them over and over in order to hide them from her captors. So yeah, I think the technical term for this gift is "butt rubies."

Best smuggled jewelery story since Captain Koons

"It made me laugh when the Briarcliff Christmas party was underway and the Monsignor singled out Sister Eunice for doing such a perfect job as the new head of the asylum, and then almost immediately the psycho Santa started stabbing everybody with the Christmas star"

Like she said, "One step forward, two steps back.". LMAO, Evil Sister Eunice...you're the BEST!

"I liked this part: Dr. Arden decided to feed the French lady to the mutants, but his chore was interrupted by aliens. (I can't believe that is a sentence I wrote. This show!)"

Like I said last week...shark jump

"Sister Jude knows first hand just how effed up Briarcliff is. It was frankly her bad for coming back in the first place"

Which is one of my biggest problems with where this story is going. Kit, Lana and Jude, all got out of Briarcliff but all have various contrived storys which brought them back...Lana's by far the worst.

haha poor lana. From the fat into the fire back into the fat! She seems to be handling it well tho. Her situations are both depressing and amusing at the same time. Brilliant writing.
Sister Demon Eunice/Lily Rabe was - as always - friggin great in this episode.

Maybe it's because I am deeply distrubed, sick and twisted but I LOVED this Xmas episode! Psycho Santa? A DEMON NUN celebrating the birth of Christ? AWESOME!! At this stage I am loving Demon Sister Eunice so much I'd vote for her to be the next president! :-) the only thing that pissed me off about this ep - and it is a problem I often have with tv shows is the whole - Dr Thredson turning at EXACTLY the right time and place to catch Lana going to make a phone call. I mean C'mon! I know we have to suspend belief etc, and I know I am talking about a show that features, Aliens AND a grown up version of Anne Frank. That stuff I can swallow no probms. But
Thredson being able to some 'read' Lana;s mind and show up when and where he did is too much. Has he just been standing outside the office the whole time? did his 'spidersense' tell him when and where to turn up? Grrr! anyway I am going to (try) and let that one slide. 'Cos I like I said this episode was seriously deranged and awesome! Glad to see Sr Jude 'pulling a Glen', going bad-ass! and taking out a superior advesary using her wits and whatever she she get her hands on. this show ROCKS!!!

It kinda felt like not a lot has happened, Lana and Kit still telling each other that they HAVE to get out of there. Right back to the first episode.
Other random thought: the show emphasizes that the most terrifying thing that this show can do to you is death. I mean they keep trying to shock us with another character getting killed. Or like the part where Santa was killing Jude or Bloody Face was trying to kill Lana. To be honest, at this point I would say that dying would be a pleasent relief for all of them. Usually I would not want crazy Santa Clause to rape/eat/kill an elderly nun, but watching that particular scene left me wishing that they would all die already and would be put off they misery.

I loved this episode...I mean, I like every episode in varying degrees, but this one creeped me out. I don't get creeped out by things I see very often, so on the rare occasions when I do, I can't help but adore being able to not unsee them.
I love the horror genre to a fault and all, but I honestly can't remember anytime past middle school when a scary movie was good enough to distract me from concentrating on effects & whatnot. As a result, ever since then, disturbing trumps scary in my book 10 out of 10 times.
Ian McShane's silly psycho Santa seemed sublime.
Best Christmas episode ever.

Wasn't that cold open ripped straight from Supernatural? The kid wakes his parents up to show them the clown that just popped by to visit- but then he kills erebody? Oh well, its a great and appropriately terrifying recycled plot.

Why was Sister Jude banned from Briarcliff, again? Yeah she got shwasted that one time and ran off to meet up with the Nazi hunter, but I don't recall her getting fired. Anyways, definitely a poor choice for her to return.

Ian McShane was awesome, but I agree that that was more not-fun violence than good ol fun scary tension building horror movie stuff. I can't believe that dude's British though!

Is anybody else suddenly excited for the holidays now?

This show is sick. And I mean it in the best possible way. And since there has been some talk about opening sequences lately, I have to confess that the one on this show is my favourite out of all on TV. Part of the reason is the music which is amazing.

Maybe this is what should be Ryan Murphy's thing; short seasons. He has the ability to push out a lot of crazy stuff, but the novelty of that only lasts a short while. All the other shows he has made that last a full network season seem to run out of steam (yeah Glee, j'accuse). But a short season of crazy like on AHS manages to stay interesting.

could you be more specific where you believe you hear it? I never have & just went through 5 replays of it to recheck & still hear nothing like a voice...I won't automatically default to concluding your ears are playing tricks on ya though, because since you brought it up & got me thinking about it, it wouldn't surprise me if the guys who made the sequence added some samples in the higher mhz range that not everyone can hear depending on age. (think mosquito ringtones) If, by chance that could be the case, it would be really cool on the creepy scale.

I'm pretty sure that is a sound effect (synthesiser) if you mean the two beat sound that plays in regular intervals over the background music and saws and screams.

Completely agree on the opening sequence music. It's also hard to pic between s1 and s2 in terms of the montage either. Love the grindhouse feel too. Other opening sequences that get me in the mood for the show are SoA, True Blood, GoT, Dexter and Parks. Also Battlestar Galactica used the opening sequence to great effect.

From the EW interview with Ryan Murphy on what to expect on the next episode:

-"I had heard Ian McShane really loved American Horror Story. So we wrote it and we were like, “Let’s send it to him and ask for a quick pass.” To my delight, he said yes. It was supposed to be one big thing, but instead we turned it into two because we had Ian. He’s in next week’s episode and he does some amazingly ghastly things that set up our winter cliffhanger. I love coming back in January and having four originals. So next week I think has I believe five cliffhangers. We’re just finishing writing the last episode, which is very moving and good".

They also ask him about Pepper! She's coming back!
Where has she been?!
"Next week is the reappearance of Pepper! She got taken! And they bring her back with a very unusual change. That’s one of our great cliffhangers. I know Pepper is an audience favorite. And it’s the question I get asked the most: “Where’s f—in’ Pepper?” So Pepper returns!

Sister Jude ignored her own qualms and trusted Arden because she has seen a revival of her faith and believes that she has been sent to release Sister Mary Eunice from the demon. She thought God was moving the pieces in place for her to achieve His goal.

Ian McShane is brilliant...damn he scary! I think Grace will be back, alive and kicking...which will freak the shit out of Arden, who is probably the only living person who knows she was dead (aside from Kit).

Also, you CAN have morning sickness just a couple of weeks after conceiving. When I had my son, I was super nauseous before I even missed a period. That's how I knew I was pregnant.

Pepper is the mastermind behind everything, the puppetmaster. She made the illusion of her being locked up in Briarcliff, to assess the situation. She then arranged angels and demons to fight out their differences there, and uses the aliens as referees. All the insane/murderous people are just the crowd sometimes getting mixed up in all the fun and games. Whoever gets an injury goes to see Dr. Arden, who makes an.. 'immortal' out of you.

This episode was kind of weird. But the thing that bothers me the most is the fact that Thredson is the weakest/dumbest serial killer ever! Seriously? How does Lana always manage to escape from him? Fool me once, shame on you....but fool me twice??? Seriously Bloody Face??? Seriously???

1. I think she has one 1 bun in the oven, but it would be awesome if they are twins, and Bloody Face 2.0 is Ben Harmon's twin, separated at birth or some crap like that (and that way they can tie the 2 season together a little bit)
2. I'm hating the Aliens story, so I don't care about Grace and her body
3. Yes
4. Who's Pepper...J/K...but I know something shocking is going on there

I don't want the seasons to tie together. I like that they are telling completely different horror stories, using a stable of great actors to play varying parts. It's what the Twilight Zone used to do. They had a bunch of actors who appeared regularly on their shows always playing different parts.

Woah good point- if Lana is preggers with Bloody Face's spawn, it'll be the same-ish age in present day as Ben Harmon! And played by the same actor too. I don't see how they can pass up them being twins or something!

I thought it was hilarious. I was rooting for Ian's character. Smacking Jude on the bottom with her own whips was great. Plus I really don't like Jude. I much prefer Devil Eunice. Plus Jude was a sucker for trusting Arden. I mean really, just a few episodes ago she was trying to get him arrested for being a Nazi. Note to Jude, secret Nazi's like to remain secret.

Lily Rabe is amazing.

Lana is too dumb for the plan to work. Kit too for that matter.

Questions.

Probably one. But for some reason I want to say two. It would be more in line with the wackiness of this season if there was a good twin and an evil twin. I mean that is one of the few horror genres they haven't covered yet in there ADHD horror show.

Soup? Do aliens eat soup? My guess is that they use their advanced butt probing technology to bring her back to life. And yea. That is all I have.

Ha, no. I was on a bus one time when a Santa peed on a bunch of seats and women, then tried to rob the driver.

I am telling you Pepper is one of the Aliens. Or is with the Aliens.

I agree "Unholy night" wasn't a good episode. We've seen much better this season.

IMO the best picture of this recap was "Dang" - hilarious!

Pregnant Lana - she's already vomiting? How long was she in Casa de Sylar? Morning sickness starts at about 5 - 6 week of pregnancy (3 - 4 weeks after conception) Does it mean Lana was with Sylar for a whole month??

Sister Demon - I agree, these "shit stained earings" are gorgeous, but still - ewwww!! How can you wear them, girl??

Sister Jude - now you know how the cane tastes. I don't feel sorry for you.

No, "Dominique" - blashemy!

Questions:

1. Probably one. I doubt she will have twins.

2. I hope they're going to resurect her.

3. He wasn't scary at all.

4. Price - Pepper was an episodic role. Give it up already!

Yeah, Lana's probably preggers. You're right though, morning sickness doesn't usually kick in for several weeks. I mean, it takes at least two weeks before it will even show up positive on a pregnancy test. Not that most shows are overly concerned with accuracy on the subject...

This is early...I didn't not like the episode because what I actually saw it as in just getting the pieces all on the board (I thought we might have had a Lana and Jude run in just to get everyone on the same side) since you might view this season as a roller coaster and this was just getting us all to the peak.

1. Why do you think there is more than one? I must say, even though I am an advocate for the modern day BF being Lana and Thresdon's kid, I didn't put together the throwing up with morning sickness. Like last week, I was still catching up with the fact that we had spent a whole half hour with two story lines without hearing from the other characters when suddenly at the 10:36 mark we went to other set of stories.

2. I have no idea...I am so confused by this alien storyline. My random idea from last week that Kit is somehow a sleeper alien agent that is being monitored is still around, I still don't like it and am hoping there is a rational explanation for the aliens, but, I really kind of found Kit's dream sad. Now, I have figured that some of our heroes would die, but after last week, I thought Kit would be the survivor (like, I don't actually think Lana is dead, but maybe she gets so injured she falls into a coma, that would be the only explanation to me why she wouldn't try and get rid of the baby even on her own, yes I know it was 1964, but women had ways...and Jude seems like if she has to sacrifice herself to defeat evil she is all on board) but that they keep making me feel bad for him (I feel bad for Lana too but in a different way)..

3. No, I have seen scarier. But, I did kind of wonder, I know that there was that room that Lana got grabbed from in the season premiere and then later we saw Arden cleaning out that room, but as it was the same type he was in, I wondered if it was actually him.

4. Well, random spoiler, apparently she comes back either in next week's episode or the next one and she had been taken (by whom or what I don't know) and she has changed. I am guessing one of the main reasons of casting an actress of normal height and appearance was for this purpose...you know, we might not recognize her (though I am guessing the aliens (?) likely were able to change her physical appearance, but maybe not her homicidal tendencies).

Best/scariest Santa, was in that early "Supernatural" episode "A Very Supernatural Christmas"

The episode opens up with a Santa walking around the house, eating cookies, etc. He then goes up stairs attacks the family off camera, and drags a bloody sack down the stairs. I think the guy woke up at one point and the Santa starts beating the bloody sack to shut him up, while one of the children watched with a W T F expression.

** SPOILERS **

The pieces are slowly falling into place to support the theory I said a few weeks back: the 2012 Bloody Face is the spawn of Thredson and Lana (played by Dylan McDermott who's joining the cast next week). I'm actually quite shocked I was able to guess it as the show usually goes in the complete opposite direction from where I think it is.

Ignoring the holocaust implications and just focusing on the pure cleanliness...

Putting something like that through an autoclave or something-or-another, it wouldn't really matter.

Solid stuff like that cleans easily enough, and I imagine a mad scientist knows how to sterilize stuff.

But, going back to the moral ramifications... obviously way way bad/dark/wrong/etc. Which, in a way, IS the best gift to give to a demon I guess.
