This month (May 2013), our contributor challenge is to flesh out and write outstanding articles for the Production side of American Horror Story. This includes the behind the scenes heroes and the on-camera actors, the production elements, and all the candid pictures and video. As a special bonus, articles and media in the Production category will earn extra Leaderboard points for this month (ending 2013-05-31). That's 30 days, so get in your edits while you can! If you particularly like an edit or contribution, upvote it with +1 or 👍 Like. Our best contributor will be tagged as our "Featured Editor", and spotlighted with special recognition.
The pages we are targeting this month appear below, but we would also suggest any additional topics…Read more >
To keep us occupied as we wait in the off-season, I'd like to introduce a new set of events for AHS Wiki. "Contributor Challenges" are a themed way to focus on areas and articles that need love, while bringing us the opportunity to feature contributors old and new. Each month-long challenge will feature ways to let our contributors shine in both our hearts, and on the Achievements Leaderboard. A challenge may focus on Fluffing existing articles (like stubs or screencaps), or whole Categories (which may provide even more bonus points). In addition to points, quality editors will be noticed by we administrators, and may find themselves featured in special ways. If you've made or seen a particularly noteworthy edit, be sure to +1 or 👍 Like it…Read more >
Today I am here to wish a happy birthday to the most valuable member of the cast of "American Horror Story", the wonderfully talented Jessica Lange. I thank Jessica for having blessed us with his impressive gift. With her I learned to be a good father (Constance) and how to be a good boss (Sister Jude). From the bottom of my heart I hope to learn many other "tricks" with this muse of actresses, until it is no longer possible.
Thank you Jessica, and Happy Birthday!!!Read more >
I was thinking. The production for AHS is great with symbolism and what not. And I've been thinking about the foreshadowing line from Jude - "If you look in the face of evil, evil is going to look right back at you".
So I feel after a first viewing what most of us think is "Oh I see what you did there, foreshadowing all the horror that fell upon poor oh Lana". But then I can't help but think, and I no this is not a general consensus, that Lana adopted some evil qualities after all her trauma.
And then if you watch the Cinematography for that one scene it's -
When you look in the face of evil- (close up on Jude's Face) Evil is going to look right back at you (Close up on Lana's face)
Think about that. I feel like AHS was making a distinct poin…Read more >
Half of you will not believe, others will want me to admit to Briarcliff. But I have proof that the Constance's fourth son is actually:
The Albino who appeared in that infamous fake image that ran this wiki for a long time.
Visiting a Brazilian site (#nationpride) I bumped into a report (Albino ), it says that the actor, Stephen Thompson, came to be hired as a supporting actor, but was cut from the series. He even had a scene with Evan Peters in the Pilot episode (pictures below), but this scene is not shown on the DVD / Blu-Ray of the first season.Read more >
Good evening all! Hoping that the long wait between stories is not leaving you chilled (like poor Wendy Peyser in the freezer). We have a few things to discuss. We have some issues on improving the quality of the site to discuss and get some consensus on, so please be sure to vote in the polls below before March 31, 2013. The longer time in the off-season for voting may be less necessary with one of the proposals below, but in the meantime we are just snagging eyeballs. (No, not like that.)
First to the announcements:
- Welcome back to Izzy, an admin returned from long absence.
- Everyone seems to be liking the new Forum, with many active discussions.
- AHS Wiki is looking for leadership in posting appropriate news and articles to the para-communit…
As Asylum comes to a close, we look back on some of the parts of the story that worked, and the parts that fizzled. Whether you think of them as Briarcliff Manor's security system (which was somehow never noticed by Sister Jude!) or as troubled souls contorted by a sadist, Arden's creations are part of a more basic controversy: what do we call them?
Production (aka, the people who make the show) call them Raspers. That word was never used on the show, much like the characters in a zombie film or television never use the word "zombie", by tradition. They also used the name "Infantata" to describe what became of poor Thaddeus Montgomery. No character used that name during Murder House. Yet Infantata gets a page named after him, and the Rasper…Read more >

Good evening all! Hoping that Bloody Face has not left you disarmed. We have a few things to discuss. We have some issues on improving the quality of the site to discuss and get some consensus on, so please be sure to vote in the polls below before December 12, 2012.
First to the announcements:
- Please welcome our new admins: OGRastamon and American Morality!
- The great migration to "Theory:" has gone off mostly without any hitches.
- AHS Wiki is experimenting with para-communities, starting with Facebook, Google+, and Tumblr. Watch for details!
- When we're not fluffing pages, the contributors like to philosophize at the Tao of AHS Wiki.
UPDATE: Final poll results:
- AHS:About RATIFIED (6 for, 0 against)
- AHS:MOS RATIFIED (5 for, 0 against)
- Capitalization issu…
NOTE:The following is posted here for maximum visibility. Should it be approved by an Admin it is to be transcluded to a more official location.
- Sentence case – Capitalization of only the first word, proper nouns and as dictated by other specific English rules.
- Title Case – Capitalization of the first word, and all other words, except for articles, prepositions, and conjunctions.
Sentence case is used, obviously, when writing sentences and it is the unspoken official format for the main body of an AHS Wiki article. When it comes to non-sentences as used elsewhere in the wiki (i.e. section headers, infobox titles and data) it is a matter of preference and there is currently no official guideline. So I wish to put it up to a vote.

American Horror Story is my second favorite show on TV right now. Yet I am finding that ever since I Am Anne Frank: Part Two (which was a great episode), it has gotten really jumbled and all over the place. I find it making less and less sense and that it is getting a bit ridiculous. I have talked to friends and family and they seem to agree. Anyone else getting dissapointed?

Anyone else here who has a hunch that Kit and Grace are having a baby? Along with the alien? I'm sorry. I just feel like it's an AHS trademark-to concieve twins w/ different fathers. Only this time, the other father was extra-therrestrial and not a ghost but still both are not human.
I really want Kit and Grace to somehow end up together and concieve a love child. That's the only light we have left in the asylum. Everything is just so creepy and dark, yea yea! I'm aware it is a horror show but still. They disappointed us w/ Violate team up before. So now I'm really rooting for the love birds. :">Read more >
My fan art page hasn't been getting any notice (apparently it doesn't show in the standard activity stream) so I've decided to reproduce it here. All pieces were created with Paint.NET and show a learning curve.

I just read the article about the third season, and I was (like everyone else) wondering what's to come.
In my country (Brazil) people are thinking that American Horror Story would end in Asylum, because the creators could not write more different stories. I say no to that! The creators, more than once, proved to be competent enough to do it, I believe they can maintain it.
Here are my ideas for next season and the actors that I would like to see them:
Veteran Actors: Jessica Lange, Lily Rabe, Evan Peters, James Cromwell, Zachary Quinto, Chloë Sevigny, Denis O'Hare, Connie Britton, Franka Potente, Frances Conroy and Dylan McDermott.
New Actors: Allan Hyde (True Blood), Madeleine Stowe (Revenge), Jennifer Jason Leigh (Revenge), Terry O'Quinn (Lo…

- He was in a Santa suit sucking on a candy cane with a girl on his lap. What is going on there?
- Well, I can tell you Ian and I had a lot of amazing Christmas things to do together. Sister Mary Eunice has something to do with why his character is wearing that Santa suit. She has a lot of Christmas spirit, that's for sure.
- So there will be a Christmas episode of American Horror Story?
- Oh yes. Of course, right? That was one of my favorite ones to shoot, actually. Ian and I got to do some really evil things together, and I have to say it was a career highlight. He's such a wonderful man. We had great stuff in the common room, with all of those background actors, the inmates. I can say Christmas will never be the same for me after shooting that epis…
Announced today: We can expected a third televised miniseries of American Horror Story
- from Inside TV
- American Horror Story is getting a third season.
- The FX horror anthology shock-fest has ordered 13 more episodes from executive producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. “With American Horror Story: Asylum, Ryan and Brad have raised the bar in every way from Murder House, the first American Horror Story miniseries,” said FX president and general manager John Landgraf. “And their original idea—the notion of doing an anthological series of miniseries with a repertory cast—has proven groundbreaking, wildly successful and will prove to be trendsetting. We can’t wait to see what deviously brilliant ideas they come up with for their third miniseries.” …
While I was watching I Am Anne Frank: Part Two I was under the impression that Wendy was dead, and that her body was preserved by freezing it. I read on the actual page "Wendy Peyser" that she was unconcious. Is she dead, unconcious, or do we not know for sure?Read more >

What makes a good quotation? That's what I want to explore here with express focus upon those used in this wiki's articles.
A good quote is quotableRead more >
A quotable quote is one you'll want to say aloud. As often as you can fit it into conversation. It brings joy to both the speaker and the listener. If truly quotable it will have meaning even to those not familiar with its source. For example,
"Well, that's cast rather a gloom over the evening, hasn't it?" would work just about anywhere while
"Then you must cut down the mightiest tree in the forest... wit…

I know what you've heard. None of last seasons characters would be returning this year. It's true. However, many roles are back and going strong.
- 1 The Dark Mater
- 2 The Lovers
- 3 The Unknown Killer
- 4 The Creature
- 5 The Mad Doctor
- 6 The Crazy Bitch
- 7 The Succubus
- 8 The Adonis
- 9 The Elaboration
- 10 Killer Fanatics
- 11 References
Sr. Jude is this seasons Constance. The role of both is to provide a juicy character for Jessica Lange to sink her teeth into. They are both strong women with wicked pasts.
The Kit/Grace pairing fills the gap left by Tate/Violet. Once again we see Evan Peters play out the drama of a young man uncertain whether he's a multiple murderer and his developing romance with a strange girl. Only this time the girl may have the darker past.
Now that Rubb…

The consensus on the world wide web is that the true name of Dr. Arden, as purported by Anne Frank, is Hans Gruber. Most seem to be aware of the name's previous use in fiction, so they're not completely clueless. Some go as far as to challenge AHS writers for this choice.
However, "Gruber" is not what I hear. I've listened repeatedly and I hear "Cooper" (most likely spelled "Kuepper"). I can't be certain if:
- They all misheard and substituted a familiar name with a similar sound.
- Most of them said "Huh?", did a Google search and then accepted the first claim they found from some random person on tumblr.
- I am actually completely wrong.
I've tweeted Murphy for the answer but I'm not holding out hope for a response.Read more >
Hey. So i'm a new user here, i've been coming to this wiki for awhile, looking at spoilers but i daren't comment. But i have this interesting idea, well i think it's interesting.
Well you know how AHS was made by Ryan Murphy who also has created shows, Glee and The New Normal. I was thinking what if AHS had a musical element, if it did, who would sing in what episodes and what would they sing?
Ep 1 - Welcome To Briarcliff.
I think the singers would be -
- Teresa and Leo ( Opening scene)
- Sister Jude and Lana (Meeting scene in her office)
- Sister Jude and Monsignor ( The dinner scene when she's stripping in her imagination)
- Kit (As he walks into the common room)
- Kit and Grace (During their talk with each other through the cells)
- Lana (The scene with Wen…

EDITOR'S NOTE: I don't want to stir anything up while 50% of the country is still stinging from yesterday's loss but I've got to get this out.
It has always bothered me whenever I meet someone who is a woman or person of color or senior citizen or low income or an uncloseted homosexual that has conservative views and supports candidacies that, implicitly or explicitly, are working against them. "How can they be so ignorant?" I think. However, I now find myself thinking I may be guilty of the same prejudices that are working against these minority groups. By assuming that a poor, old black lesbian should oppose Mitt Romney is putting her in a pigeonhole. The GOP isn't all about oppression. They'r…

So I managed to get myself banned from The Walking Dead Wiki. What a mess.
Despite several useless pages with names like "Unnamed So-and-So #3" that put the page count at over 1500, the site is fairly well maintained.

Write your review of the premiere episode in the comments section below:Read more >
I was certainly excited to see the Asylum open last night, and obviously others agree!
- The Wednesday night premiere of American Horror Story: Asylum, the second chapter in Ryan Murphy’s spookfest, delivered insanely good numbers for FX — a total audience of 3.85 million viewers, with 2.8 mil landing in the 18-49 demo (based on fast nationals). Those tallies best any episode of the original American Horror Story miniseries, and mark gains of 20 and 40 percent from AHS‘ year-ago launch. Asylum currently stands as the 10 o’clock hour’s No. 2 program in 18-49, behind CBS’ CSI and ahead of ABC’s Nashville and NBC’s Chicago Fire, and trounced all time slot rivals in …

The second season of American Horror Story premieres next week on October 17th, and let it be known right here and now that we shall only refer to this season as Asylum. For those of you not familiar with the show and the nature of the upcoming season, creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have decided to make AHS more of an anthology than a series. Whereas Season 1 (now referred to as "Murder House") had a cast of characters in a story revolving around a Victorian home, "Asylum" will have a completely different cast of characters in a story revolving around a creepy sanitarium called Briarcliff Manor. If the first season was the horror version of a family drama, the new season will be the horror version of a workplace drama. The two seas…
I watched the new promo, and Jesus H. Christ, it is the most disturbing and evil thing I've ever saw. That's why I LOVED it, it showed so much and made my mind explode in only 30 seconds.

We saw her in almost every teaser, and in the most of the posters. But I don't know for sure, is the white nun a character of the season or just of the teasers? Is she like the new rubber man or something.

So, in the last two days, we've welcomed back Frances Conroy, said to be playing an angel (alongside monsters, aliens, and Nazis). We've also lost Chris Zylka, because "the most beautiful boy in the world" was willing to play a deaf and mute character, but not to shave his head for two episodes.

So here's the cast promo poster for American Horror Story Asylum. Found first by and posted on Bloody Disgusting . The only problem is that the only version of this image on the entirety of the internet is a measly 232 x 350 upload. Regardless, It's pretty clear that the image is authentic seeing that it has all the cast in their costumes posing in posistions not seen in any other promo shot. I enlarged it and did the best I can to give it some amount of quality, though I admit that I am no Photoshop guru. But yeah, ta - dah! : ], if you can do better by all means please do, because I would love a better quality image. Some many hints in their but blurred =[.

Like all of you, I am very excited about Season Two of American Horror Story, and what place could be scarier than a mental asylum? I really can't thin of one.
To ratchet up the scary factor, we have several new promo photographs. I don't know about you, but I got the shivers just looking at these, in the middle of the day. I can only imagine what the actual episodes will do to me!

There are some stars that we know for sure are showing up in Season Two--Jessica Lange and Evan Peters for example--but what cast members will be new?
It seems that there is a negotiation to have Joseph Fiennes, Shakespeare in Love star, to appear on American Horror Story, Season 2, as a recurring character. His role? The head of the institution for the criminally insane, where Jessica Lange's character works. The two characters will have a May-December romance, which isn't too shocking, given what Jessica Lange was up to in Season One...who could forget that creepy, semi-maternal love between her and that male model boyfriend?
It seems this might be a deeper relationship--the age gap isn't quite as ludicrous (albeit, still somewhat shockin…

I have a new theory on this: we have seen the missing child many times throughout the series, and didn't know what we were seeing. It has all become clear to me now, though. The child in question is, in fact: Hallie!
Now, hear me out on this:
- Hallie is of such indeterminate breed, because she's actually not a dog at all.
- Hallie has been manipulating events from the beginning, and convinced Violet in the pilot to stay in the house after coordinating with Infantata, Troy and Bryan, and Beauregard in the basement.
- Adelaide was just trying to greet her long-lost sibling.
- Hallie was under the table at Langdon family dinner night, which is why we didn't see her.
