20 Haunting Pictures Of Abandoned Asylums

Abandoned mental asylums litter forgotten landscapes across the world. But these spooky buildings don’t compare to the fright you’ll experience inside the notorious Briarcliff Manor, the setting of American Horror Story: Asylum. Whet your macabre appetite with these haunting photos, and commit yourself to American Horror Story: Asylum. Wednesdays at 10p only on FX.

[My personal note – In Japan, ruins are known as haikyo (廃虚?) (literally “abandoned place”).  There is a growing interest in Haikyo exploration and photography if you are also interested in the eerie coolness of things falling apart.  I have posted other posts on this, including abandoned Soviet Union cold war facilities and abandoned amusement parks.]
