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, »

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 »

In the 1997 cinematic masterpiece “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” a group of teens accidentally kill a stranger only to fall one by one through an elaborate revenge-inspired plot. In 2009’s “Sorority Row,” a prank between sorority sisters goes horribly wrong and a girl gets killed. Once again, the perpetrators are brought to cold merciless justice by someone seeking revenge. Now, a low-budget film – to be released by Universal – has taken that core idea of young people getting their comeuppance and brought it into the social media age. Presented on a computer screen and seen through the lenses of camera phones and webcams, “Unfriended” centers on a group of friends who are taken down one-by-one by an unseen and unknown figure who’s seeking vengeance for a shaming video that led a vicious bully to kill herself a year earlier. Produced by genre vets Timur Bekmambetov and Jason Blum, »

You know what? I liked it. No, it has absolutely no bearing in the classic or on the better sequels produced, but I enjoyed it.
I Said, I Enjoyed This Movie!!! *beats chest*
Before I get pelted with criticism and "How Dar U!1!" messages, please indulge me.
I saw the original Elm Street when I was 24 years old, and by then, I had just about seen it all in terms of horror/gore/suspense. I got a buzz (tee hee) from the first 'Saw' and my perceptions about what was real and what was not changed when I watched the magnificent 'Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me'. So when I slapped Craven's seminal classic into the DVD player, I wasn't scared or shocked. Now please don't get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and I thought that Robert Englund is revered by horror lovers quite rightly. »
