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.

I'm 48 and I LOVE IT!
2 October 2015 | by parqueSee all my reviews

I admit it, I'm a grown up woman and I love this show. It is intentionally meant to be campy and silly as it is mocking the horror genre and typical themes of those types of movies or shows. So there are stereotypes all over the place, but for me, that is part of the charm and what makes it funny. And there are so many little jokes and references that younger people might not get and maybe that is why some don't appreciate it. But I find it to be very clever.

The basic storyline is that of a killer or killers stalking and killing girls on a college campus in a particular sorority. Who is/are the killer/killers? Well, I have a feeling we will be led down a path to each person at some point during the series only to find out it isn't them until the ultimate reveal. And while American Horror Story (also by Ryan Murphy) is usually bloody and gory for the shock effect, this is much tamer and much more easy to watch if you aren't into gore.

There is a lot of innuendo and sex references, so may not be appropriate for some younger teens, but nothing over the top. And the dialogue is very fast paced and you will probably want to seriously smack Emma Robert's character after the first few minutes, but her narcissism is what makes it all work. It's all about her. At least in her mind. And you are supposed to hate her, that is the point. She is another stereotype. The typical mean girl leader.

If you like campy horror, you will probably love it.
