Ryan Murphy / FX
After a successful collaboration on the first American Horror Story, series co-creator Ryan Murphy approached Prologue again to work on season two, American Horror Story: Asylum. Although Prologue had worked on the series before, the opening title sequence was still made before principal photography was shot. This time the show was set in a psychiatric ward, which inspired many of the design choices for the sequence. Deceased cadavers are carted away by nefarious staff, religious figures taken advantage of restrained inmates, and demented patients roam the dimly lit corridors. This nightmarish hell-scape is topped off by a mischievous smile from the virgin Mary. This opening title sequence has been rated as the scariest of the series by fans.
