SCARY, MACABRE, GOTH, HORROR…
SCREAM QUEENS IS ONE OF MY NEW FAVORITE SHOWS!
The pilot is available to stream on Amazon FOR FREE.
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.
Emma Roberts is not my favorite person in the world, (not because of her AHS roles, but because of who she is as a person), but I couldn’t have cast a better actress to play the Queen Bitch On Campus – Chanel Oberlin. Cathy Munsch, the Dean of Wallace University, is played by actual scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis – and she is at the top of her game! (Still a babe, too.) One of Chanel’s little minions is played by Zombie Land’s Abigail Breslin, and it took me half of the pilot episode to figure out where I knew her from. You’ll recognize many more Scream Queens – so don’t let me spoil all the fun! (True Blood beefcake, a brother from a boy-band, and a Reno 911alum… just to name a few!)
“Shut up, you don’t die from getting your face burned off.”

Scream Queens is ‘campy’, it’s over the top, and packed full of iconic horror references – making me sad that I watched it alone, not having a person next to me to punch with excitement every time I caught something, or just wanted to fall off the bed laughing.
