[TV] Play The Name Game With The Cast Of "American Horror Story: Asylum"

For those who have yet to enter the asylum, this is the kind of clip that will turn you off from ever watching FX’s American Horror Story: Asylum – but it shouldn’t be taken out of context.

In the clip from this past Wednesday’s episode, Sister Jude Martin, played by Jessica Lange, has just had electroshock therapy and has thus gone into a state of euphoria. From it comes a bizarre rendition of “The Name Game.”

In this season, “Set in 1964, “Asylum” takes us into a Church-run haven for the criminally insane, ruled with an iron fist by Sister Jude, a nun with a troubled past. Inside this locked down facility, danger lurks around every corner. From Nazis and serial killers, to mutants and aliens, no one is safe inside these walls.

    They needed these moments of bizarre, macabre fun throughout the whole season.

    This scene was perfect for such a bizarre show. Jessica Lange is just incredible.

    I dont care what you say Brad/Mr. Disgusting; I grew up around music and horror, that was amazing and mind blowing! I watched that scene twice on FX! I cant wait until this season comes out on video! Thats right Im going to buy it honestly.

      I completely agree. I literally had a huge smile on my face throughout the whole scene. It was awesome to see all the inmates; especially Kit, Lana, and Sister Jude, having fun even if it was only a hallucination. I loved it and it was the perfect fun and colorful moment for such a dark season. Jessica Lange, another Emmy is coming your way. I also cant wait to pick this season up on Blu Ray

        count me in too guys! i just tonight (Saturday) watched this ep for the 1st time and when this part happened, like anthonyd1 said, it put a big smile on my face. it was so needed/great to see Lana, Kit, Pepper (& everyone!) smiling and being happy even though it was just in Jude’s head(?).

        this was pretty epic in that some MAJOR things happen. i really hope the aliens storyline isn’t a disappointment.

    This will probably be the first TV series I pick up on Blu-Ray. I want it all, and I want it now… Ep 10 was stunning in ever conceivable way, and The Name Game bust out was just totally mesmerizing. Glee in Hell.

    This scene was so out of place, so odd, and was so Awesome! I caught me by surprise and I didn’t think modern TV could still do so. In the middle of all the Chaos in the asylum I had such a good laugh watching this part and episode with my weekly AHS buddy that we were just like WTF? This is GREAT!
