Did You Know?


Sarah Paulson's reporter walk-through scene in Asylum was pulled directly from actual footage of Bill Baldini's exposé piece on Pennhurst Asylum in Spring City, PA. Baldini's work led to the closure of Pennhurst and the release of all its patients. Pennhurst is now the location of a seasonal haunted house and has been featured on numerous shows, due to the reported extreme paranormal activity in Pennhurst's buildings. See more »

13 October 2014 | by paparazzi-lgSee all my reviews

The Episode was an Epic Finale for an Amazing Season I Found the Writers did a very Great job for this season finale This Season was the Best one so Far the Directing was Incredible

The Cast did an Amazing Job Especially Sarah Paulson and Jessica Lange Dylan McDermott's acting was pure and good

the final Scene was so good and In My Opinion it's the Best Final scene I Have Ever Seen Like Really

I Don't know Why some People hated the End It was Great and the Season is better than the first one and Of Course the third season

overall It's a Must Watch.
