Storyline

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. Written by Fox

So bad it's good
22 September 2015 | by panos-petiSee all my reviews

Being one of the most anticipated TV series of fall 2015 I had so much expectations about Scream Queens.

Well, the program didn't meet them. First of all it had so much racist and stereotypical jokes and situations (Channel is the name of the meanest girl, gay man who is in love with his best friend, silly deaf girl etc.) Furthermore it tries so hard to sell to the audience that everyone is a suspect of being the killer. We got it Ryan Murphy. Don't explain verbally every 5 minutes. We watched the clues. Plus Emma Roberts plays the same role. Again. And again.I love this mean girl performance but you can't follow the same recipe over and over again. It's getting boring.

On the other side I liked several characters (security woman, Lee Curtis, Keke Palmer). Some jokes were actually on point, too.

All this nonsense makes you want to watch what stuff will come next. I'll give it another chance. So bad it is good. It can actually work. It could become a guilty pleasure.
