Denis the menace

Gay actor Denis O’Hare, TV’s reigning villain, is far less creepy than his roles

Meeting Denis O’Hare should be scary as hell. After all, this is the man who plays two of TV’s reigning supervillains: The horny vamp leader on True Blood and a mysteriously deformed psychopath who just suffocated a potential homebuyer on American Horror Story. But today, in the back of homo-hot-spot Saint Felix in West Hollywood on his day off, O’Hare doesn’t project any of that eeriness.
So far during the debut season of the smash FX show, O’Hare, as the scarred weirdo Larry Harvey, has doused a house in gasoline, killed another man’s mistress and fought fervently for a home that’s become a tough sell — and not just because the economy sucks.
“I don’t think he’s evil,” O’Hare says. “He’s acting out of a particular desire for something. For me, all characters have a justification for their behavior; they always think that what they’re doing is necessary for a reason. Even the Phantom of the Opera has a real reason: He was in love with someone, he was scarred, he wants love and revenge.”

True Blood Christmas Carols 2011 Part 2 " Eric the Vampire"

True Blood Christmas Carols- Eric the Vampire

(sung to the tune of “Frosty the Snowman”) Eric the vampire
Was a very scary guy
With his ice blue eyes and his big white fangs
And the fact that he could fly Eric the vampire
Owned a Shreveport bar they say
He sat on a throne and it was well known
That he lay as dead all day. There must have been some magic in that
Telepath they found
When Sookie solved Longshadow’s crime
Eric thought “She will be mine”. Eric the vampire
Was determined as can be
He brought Bill to trial, with a wicked smile,
Brought back Jessica with glee Thumpetty thump thump,
thumpety thump thump,
Look at Eric’s eyes.
Thumpetty thump thump,
thumpety thump thump,
Through the night sky he flies. Eric the vampire
Wants a telepath we know
With Pam by his side Eric tried and tried
To get Bill to let her go Sookie is frightened
Of the ancient Viking vamp
Can Bill keep her safe? Will his vampire waif
Drive Sook into Eric’s camp? Thumpetty thump thump,
thumpety thump thump,
Look in Eric’s eyes.
Thumpetty thump thump,
thumpety thump thump,
Through the night sky he flies.

Away in a Graveyard (sung to the tune of "Away in a Manger")

Away in a graveyard,
Just dirt for his bed,
Vampire Bill Compton
lay down his sweet head.
The stars in the sky
looked down where he lay
The Vampire Bill Compton,
asleep in the day.

The maenad is roaming,
The vampire wakes,
But Vampire Bill Compton,
no victim he takes;
I love you Bill Compton,
I see how you try
To only drink True Blood
so no one will die.

Be near me, Bill Compton
And let us not fight
Just love me forever,
and love me tonight
I know you're a vampire
You can drink from me
Just don't bite my neck, dear
Where others can see.

NPR-- Bianculli Picks The Best (And Worst) TV Of 2011

I can't tell you how much I have loved American Horror this year!

7. American Horror Story (FX) The series was created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, who previously worked together on Glee. The central story has Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott moving into a house where the previous tenants were found dead. Bianculli says it "may be the scariest TV show" he's ever seen, and it leaves him thinking about the characters long after he's turned off the TV set.

10. True Blood (HBO) The HBO vampire series created by Alan Ball is a soap opera, pure and simple, said Bianculli in a review that aired originally on June 9, 2010. "Or more accurately, it's a soap opera, impure and complicated." The show's constant plot twists — and the regular introduction of new characters — keep Bianculli hooked. And "for a safe, long-term investment in pop culture's fascination with the paranormal, I say take your money and let it ride on vampires," he said last May. "They're undead in more ways than one — every generation, they always seem to earn a brand new life.
