When: Summer, 1984. Where: Camp Redwood, a remote, pleasant getaway, albeit one with a twisted history. Who: the doe-eyed sweetheart, the sex-crazed bad girl, the spoiled pretty boy, the handsome jock, the tries-too-hard nice guy, a religious zealot with a hidden past and more than one mindlessly murderous maniac. The Plot: a group of camp counselors escaping the L.A. heat are outrunning their pasts and a pair of knife-wielding maniacs? Is this a reboot of Friday the 13th? Some low-budget, direct-to-video C-movie? Nope! It’s AHS: 1984, the ninth season of FX’s hit anthology series American Horror Story; also the first since AHS: Apocalypse, which turned the franchise inside out and then put it (mostly) back together again.
