Scream Queens: American slasher flick comes to E4
Scream Queens is a new American comedy-horror on Fox, which has recently been picked up by E4 to broadcast in the UK from October 26, 2015 and I promise that it’s a show not to be missed.
Stars Emma Roberts, Ariana Grande, Keke Palmer, Nick Jonas, and Lea Michele become the victims of a “red devil” mascot who is targeting the sorority members of Kappa House.
All hell breaks loose when the red devil unleashes his anger by chopping off a student’s arms with a chainsaw, mowing off a pledge’s head, and kidnapping a KKT (Kappa Kappa Tau) sorority sister.
Kappa House’s queen bee, Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts) is a snobbish, ‘daddy’s little girl’, controlling freak. She even has three “Chanel” minions (Ariana Grande, Abigail Breslin and Billie Lourd) who are numbered one through five and follow Chanel’s orders just to retain their popularity status at college. They’re basically, your average all-girl American clique.
Dean Munch (Jamie Lee Curtis) of Wallace University vows to keep her students safe by hiring a lunatic security guard, Denise Hemphill (Niecy Nash) who is totally useless as she isn’t legally permitted to carry weapons which are needed to take down the psycho killer, but believes that her “if you see him, scream and I’ll come-a-running” technique is the best response if the girls find themselves in danger. She’s practically another oblivious American who keeps the typical taser and pepper spray in her purse.
Into the five episodes already aired, we witness relationships flourish and break down, to an overflowing blood bath as a twisted story of the past unfolds into Grace (Skyler Samuels) and Pete’s (Diego Boneta) hands and we learn about the dark history of Kappa House.
Nobody has any idea of the red devil’s next move. But, we do know that it can only keep getting darker and creepier by the episode.
I would rate Scream Queens a 3 out of 5 stars as the storyline isn’t completely compelling and neither is the direction, but worth the humour and different to many programmes out there.
If you’re a fan of Glee or American Horror Story then Scream Queens would totally grab your attention.
Don’t miss the E4 premiere on October 26, 2015 at 10pm or catch-up online.
