13 Days of Horror: Dr. Oliver Thredson in American Horror Story: Asylum (2012)

Thredson maskIn American Horror Story’s second season, audiences were introduced to the seemingly compassionate Dr. Oliver Thredson. He demanded fairness to all asylum patients and looked after those he felt were being mistreated. It wasn’t long, and much to the dismay of a particular character, that not only was Thredson a master manipulator, but was also a uncaught serial killer known as “Bloodyface.” Dr. Oliver Thredson is the perfect example of a brilliant individual, who is also clinically insane, yet able to publicly disguise his insanity by usage of his intellectual personality. The mere fact that he is a therapist gives him the advantage of using his profession to emotionally isolate his victims before he claims them. His actions, including murder, are systematic and done meticulously, suggesting he will continue to abduct, torture, and murder until he is eventually caught. What’s worse, Thredson enjoys the power behind what he does. His actions stimulate him and provide him with a supposed life purpose. He’ll never stop murdering.
