American Horror Story: Asylum Spoiler: Ryan Murphy Teases “the Most Disturbing Scene We’ve Ever Done” – Exclusive
If you thought the hair-raising exorcism on the October 24 episode of American Horror Story: Asylum was creepy (like us), then you’re in for an even bigger scare when Episode 4 airs on November 7.
We pressed creator Ryan Murphy for details on the current season of his FX frightfest at THR’s “Design Hollywood at The Century” opening night on October 24, and he basically said we haven’t seen anything yet.
“I just edited the most disturbing scene we’ve ever done on that show with Sarah Paulson and Zach [Quinto], and as soon as it was over I called her and I said I can’t wait for people to see it,” he teased. “And it’s not violent, it’s psychological, but it is the scariest thing we’ve ever done. It’s Episode 4. Two weeks!”
So two weeks from now we will be sleeping with the lights on.
Ryan also promised more from the tortured husband and wife duo of Adam Levine and Jenna Dewan-Tatum. “It’s stretched out over several episodes,” he explained. “It’s a really good plot point. We intercut the 2012 scenes with the 1964 stuff so it’s like a little novel within a novel. I love it, and Adam and she are so great together.”
While their fates certainly seem to be sealed within Briarcliff, Evan Peters’s (Kit) storyline is a little more up in the air. “Evan is the romantic leading man of the year so I hope he makes it out alive,” Ryan said, though he was quick to add that he “can’t promise that.”
He continued, “[Evan] sends me funny emails, he’s like, ‘Please don’t make me cry, please don’t kill me.’ He’s great, he’s up for a good challenge. He’s a good boy and a good actor and I love him.”
