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

Goofs

Throughout out the series, it's clear that the actors/actresses portraying teenagers are actually in their 20s+. This is done as to not interfere with the schooling of real teenagers and to give the general viewing audience who are teenagers themselves someone they can look up too. See more »

More comedy than horror
3 October 2015 | by phd_travelSee all my reviews

This series has the right balance for a comedy with some horror. It's less graphic than American Horror Story and less hectic than Glee. The horror isn't as sickening as AHS so a wider audience can watch it. The pace is less hectic and slapstick than Glee. The one liners are funnier and you have time to digest the jokes. It's more comedy than horror and I'm fine with that.

Emma Roberts is the queen bee of a sorority where murders are taking place. She is given a lot of the good lines and she delivers them quite well. You can see her learning to be a comedienne here. She looks prettier than in AHS. Abigail Breslin is a bit under utilized. Lea Michelle doesn't dominate the other cast and that's good.

Jamie Lee Curtis has a juicy role as Dean of the school. The guys seem a bit nondescript despite a Nick Jonas guest appearance.

Pleasantly surprised.
