An admittedly silly but bloody refreshing, fun start for a horror comedy on television
23 September 2015 | by choorydannySee all my reviews

Being a huge fan of comedies poking fun of the genre clichés of horror (no, not the Scary Movie franchise, but Evil Dead 2 and The Cabin in the Woods), I had relatively high expectations of Scream Queens.

However the morbid humor, the ensemble cast and the consciously hilarious cliché twists of this pilot grabbed my attention right in the start with its over-the-top storytelling. Its extravagantly juvenile character development is so well-approached in writing that it succeeds to amaze me and invest in these characters. Scream Queens seizes the formula of enjoyable, silly TV programming, moreover makes the viewer want more of it as the narrative progresses.

The pilot to Scream Queens knows what it is and remains frank to itself by exploiting its predecessors and by never wanting to be more. The show is a earthly hug for those fans of the horror genre who know exactly what to expect from a teen slasher flick.
