Wallace University is rocked by a string of murders. Kappa House, the most sought-after sorority for pledges, is ruled with an iron fist (in a pink glove) by its Queen Bitch, Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts). But when anti-Kappa Dean Cathy Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis) decrees that sorority pledging must be open to all students, and not just the school's silver-spooned elite, all hell is about to break loose, as a devil-clad killer begins wreaking havoc, claiming one victim, one episode at a time. Part black comedy, part slasher flick, SCREAM QUEENS is a modern take on the classic whodunit, in which every character has a motive for murder... Or could easily be the next blood-soaked casualty.

Humorous satire on 80's slasher and youth generation of today
23 September 2015 | by magic-toneSee all my reviews

"Scream Queens", Ryan Murphy's new show is basically a horror comedy take on 80's slasher and the stupidity of certain youths today. Now the plot of the show as of episode 2 revolves around a sorority with a masked killer picking them off and others one by one; and along with this, the dramas and relationships between these students. Emma Roberts is at her best here, firing out those "Mean Girls"esque lines and its when she's on screen the show really shines. What people don't seem to understand is that it is purely a satire show and a parody of slasher movies and youth generation of today like I mentioned before. It is definitely NOT to be taken seriously, it is generally over-the-top and ridiculously stupid (in a hilarious way).

The Pilot episode was overall a bummer and quite off-putting (in my opinion because it was very uninteresting) with the exception of the last quarter being quite thrilling. Episode 2 changes all this, it suddenly becomes humour-filled on every level and the true essence of campy slasher films is parodied perfectly. A scene in this episode where the girls discuss what to do with the body was hilarious, and again it is NOT to be taken seriously. Think of "Scary Movie", this is exactly like that (only not as over-the-top while it still is), there is entertainment to be had from "Scream Queens" and I'll definitely be tuning in each week. Another important mention is the identity of this masked killer, you really don't know who it is as the hints are quite out there and in your face but they apply to multiple characters.

Take it for what it is and don't complain about it being a ridiculous, cringing show - thats exactly what its meant to be and nothing else.
