We saw a trio of posters last week, and now Entertainment Weekly has debuted four first look images from Scream Queens, the upcoming horror-comedy anthology series from Glee creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan…
“Brad and Ian and I, all three of us, were always obsessed with the ’80s/early ’90s slasher genre that was always about young people and always about coming of age,” states Murphy. “So we loved that and we decided to sort of be inspired by that idea. That was sort of the impetus of it. It’s sort of the idea of what would happen if you put something like Heathers meets Friday the 13th to those genre pictures like Massacre on Sorority Row, that early-to-late ’80s exploitation horror thing. I really like the idea of doing a comedy and doing sort of anthological comedy. What I love about it is when it’s funny, »

After revisiting John Carpenter's Escape From New York, I am pleased to say that this thrilling dystopian masterpiece still holds up great and maintains its tough cynical bite at authority, appropriately reflecting the mistrust society still has with political authority today. What truly makes Snake Plissken remain an iconic character is not just his nihilistic manner and rebellious attitude, it's mostly the mystery that surrounds him. With Hollywood's urgent need today to over-explain every character and world in popular entertainment properties till every sense of awe and wonder that made these movies great die with one last desperate gasp, it's refreshing to revisit a time that respected the power of mystery and mythology.
Snake is a lone gunslinger with combat skills, an Eastwood growl, and an eyepatch who's seen some crazy shit and is thrown into a dangerous situation with his life on the line—that's all this movie needs to explain, »

This fall, American Horror Story creators Ryan Murphy & Brad Falchuk, as well as Glee co-creator Ian Brennan, launch a new anthology series, the horror-comedy murder mystery Scream Queens. Though clearly meant to be a funnier and more pop-oriented than the FX terror series, Scream Queens has similarly amassed a varied and exciting ensemble, including…

If Scream Queens isn't yet on your radar, it should be. It's the next show from Ryan Murphy, and the plot details have been kept pretty hush-hush - until now. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Murphy revealed a wealth of new information about the plot, the characters, and exactly how this show works. As it turns out, it won't be an American Horror Story-style anthology, nor will it be a serialized format like most TV shows. The series, which Murphy describes as a scary "whodunit" comedy, has a kickass cast, and now we know who they're playing! So if you've been watching the teasers repeatedly, you're about to salivate over these juicy details. The Plot The show is set at a college called Wallace University and revolves around the fictional Kappa sorority. "It opens in a flashback to 1995 at the sorority where something horrible happens," Murphy said. "It's a mystery that goes unsolved. »

Ryan Murphy’s upcoming anthology horror, Scream Queens, has operated thus far under the cover of darkness. It’s not hard to see why, either. Everything Murphy puts his hand to turns to gold and Fox wants to keep a lid on his next bout of genius. From Glee to American Horror Story his unique approach to television narratives is refreshingly lapped up by appreciative audiences and critics. And now, Murphy has opened up about some of the campus comedy’s inner workings, along with revealing the first official photos from the show.
Thus far, we’ve only been clued in to the vague outline of the series: a campus-set horror comedy about a series of killings. In a new interview, Murphy has gone one step further, describing it as a “real murder mystery whodunit” in the vein of “Heathers meets Friday the 13th.” He goes »

Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s next anthology series is expected to do for the horror comedy subgenre what American Horror Story did for plain ole horror. Currently in production, the first season of Scream Queens revolves around a college campus which is rocked by a series of murders. How the storyline will expand past what sounds like the plot from Scream 2 (which, isn’t related in any way bar its titular similarity) mixed with Scream 2-ripoff Urban Legend is as yet unknown, because Fox are keeping their cards close on this one.
However, they’ll happily ply us with numerous teasers of its leading ladies engaging in innocent activities gone awry. The last 16-second tease showed Emma Roberts putting on lipstick and checking her reflection in a butcher’s knife, and that evocative visual has clearly struck a chord as she’s doing the same thing on a new poster. »

There are demons hiding in the bubblegum! The third teaser has arrived for Fox's new horror anthology series Scream Queens, and this time it's star Keke Palmer who is blowing bubbles for Satan. This latest sneak peek falls in line with the previous two videos, which also revolved around the art of gum chewing and the tricks that go along with it, which must be a favorite pastime for the sorority at the center of this spooky new comedy series.
If Scream Queens looks like a mash-up of Glee and American Horror Story, it's because it comes from producers of those shows Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy. Though, it remains to be seen if there will be a musical element to the series. This first season will revolve around a mysterious slasher who is killing students and faculty on a college campus. So far, no other details have been released. »

"It was just something that she did very, very privately. It was sort of a creative investigation," Murphy said of the music superstar's decision to star in the next chapter of the FX drama. "My favorite thing in the world would be when I would, of the »
