StarNews: Former “One Tree Hill” actor brings the crazy in “American Horror Story”


FX’s new “American Horror Story” is the craziest, trippiest, most disturbing series debuting this fall.Ostensibly, the show is about a couple Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott who relocate to Los Angeles with their teenage daughter to rebuild their life after he cheats and she miscarries. But the house they move into has mysterious ties to past murders, something supernatural is going on in the basement, a kleptomaniac neighbor Jessica Lange, gloriously chewing all the scenery she can find keeps walking in unannounced and the housekeeper looks like a conservative matron in her 50s Frances Conroy or a sexy strumpet in her 20s Alexandra Breckenridge depending on who’s looking at her. Throw in a mysterious burn victim Denis O’Hare, an emotionally disturbed therapy patient Evan Peters and somebody walking around in head-to-toe latex, and it’s easy to see how “Horror Story” defies description.The pilot episode, premiering at 10 p.m. Wednesday on FX, crams so much story into its hour that it feels like it covers as much ground as some shows do in a whole season, though always posing more questions than it answers.For Peters, who plays a high school student being treated by McDermott’s therapist character, the constantly roiling plot is part of the “Horror Story” appeal.
