American Horror Story Season 10 Updates: American Horror Story: Asylum included aliens, which don’t actually appear to fit with the rest of the “psychological institution” and “demonic possession” which is the subject of the season, so for what reason would they say they were included and what do they truly mean in this context?

The horror genre has recovered popularity recently and on the big screen as well as on TV. Among the most mainstream and acclaimed horror TV shows recently is American Horror Story, an anthology TV series that is made by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk.

American Horror Story that appeared on FX in 2011 and was very well welcomed permitting it to keep living for some more seasons. This makes the series make its own unified universe and investigate different types of topics.

First was Murder House, which as the title proposes, was about a haunted house where the ghosts of its previous residents and their victims stayed. Then came the best season of the show: Asylum, with mental institutions at the center as well as the front.

Because of that particular setting, Asylum explored topics like corruption, abuse of powers, and devilish possession– however, it also added another component that doesn’t fit the rest, in this way confusing the viewers.

The expansion to American Horror Story: Asylum where aliens were key in the arc of Kit Walker (Evan Peters). The aliens snatched Kit’s wife, Alma, however, authorities accepted he had killed her and along these lines, he was the serial killer “Bloody Face”.

Aliens were not that prominent as other themes and subjects but they were present all through and triggered in Kit’s life, and they even returned for him when he died years after the fact that he was suffering from cancer.

It’s considerably confusing that aliens were added to Asylum as they weren’t a main topic/element in the season overall just in Kit’s arc, yet Ryan Murphy has clarified the importance behind aliens in this specific season.

Coming EW in 2013, Murphy, Falchuk, and the producer Tim Minear opened up about numerous elements from American Horror Story, that include the alien storyline on Asylum. Murphy said that as far he is concerned, the aliens were “always an obvious metaphor for God” and would fit into “the world of a Catholic sanitarium asylum” that they were building.

Minear also referenced stories like the Betty and Barney Hill kidnapping during the 1960s as motivation for the inclusion of Aliens in Asylum, just like Kit and Alma, who were an interracial couple, adding that it felt “exactly right to him for the period”.

Minear added that the aliens are “the closest things to angels”, and the series has a “religion versus science” approach, with Murphy believing that the “science versus faith” vibe of Asylum was ideal for the addition of aliens.

Having aliens in American Horror Story: Asylum makes more sense, according to Murphy and Miner’s viewpoint, as they did play a role of God and angels by choosing Alma and Grace for it and bringing them back and later taking Kit with them when died, as an “angel” would do, and they bring an interesting difference between the entire religion/faith side of the story and the science part of it.

It’s not known if Ryan Murphy and company intend to devote a future period of American Horror Story to aliens as opposed to utilizing them as a subplot, however, if they do, they will probably mix in different elements as well.
