Even Briarcliff celebrates Christmas! What would American Horror Story: Asylum be without a visit from an insane Santa? "Unholy Night" gives viewers a guest appearance by Ian McShane as an insane Santa Claus. You may know McShane from the HBO show Deadwood, where he played Al Swaerengen. If you haven't checked it out you may want to. In the mean time, enjoy McShane as deranged Santa.
In the opening scene McShane murders a Santa outside a store and then visits a family and murders them. Money doesn't seem to motivate this insane Santa, but rather holiday injustices that are taking place during Christmas time.
