In this episode we preview FOX’s new horror comedy Scream Queens. It stars Jaime Lee Curtis (New Girl, Halloween films), Emma Roberts (American Horror Story: Coven & Freakshow), Lea Michele (Glee), Skyler Samuels (The Nine Lives of Chloe King, The Gates), Oliver Hudson (Nashville, Rules of Engagement), Abigail Breslin (Zombieland film), Niecy Nash (The Soul Man, Getting On), Ariana Grande (Sam & Cat, Victorious) and Nick Jonas (Kingdom).

Scream Queens takes place on a college campus, mostly around the Kappa House sorority. All hell breaks loose when the dean of students announces that they have to allow anyone to pledge, not just the elite. Meanwhile, People start dying as a devil clad killer runs amok on campus.

Scream Queens is billed as a horror comedy of which I found to be neither scary nor funny. If you are big into horror or Ryan Murphy produced shows, your mileage may vary.

You really do not get horror movies or tv in general. If you can’t suspend belief not sure how you can enjoy any show.

Pete, Thanks for the comment. I enjoy quite a few shows actually. Probably too many. But, I don’t think you need to suspend disbelief to do so. A show just needs to be believable within the context and rules that it sets up for the world that it exists in. I don’t have to believe that someone can actually run as fast as The Flash to enjoy watching The Flash. I just have to believe that in the world in which that show takes place, those things are possible. And, while this show exists in a hyper-realistic, hyper-stylized college campus, I don’t believe that any slightly sane person would stay on campus past the third body drop.
