Scream queens season two review

October 7, 2016

If you are a fan of “American Horror Story” at all, you will fall in love with FOX’s series “Scream Queens”. Ryan Murphy, who is the creator of “American Horror Story”, also helps create “Scream Queens”. The Wrap claims Ryan Murphy puts a hip and hilarious spin on the horror genre for “Scream Queens”. If you enjoy a comedic horror series, “Scream Queens” is the show you’ve been dreaming of. Plus, actors such as Arianna Grande, Keke Palmer, Nick Jonas and Emma Roberts star in the first season.

First, let me refresh your mind about the first season of the show that premiered last fall. It is currently on Hulu. So, disclosure, there are a lot of spoilers coming. The first season takes place on a college campus, more directly at a sorority house named Kappa Kappa Tau. Sound familiar? Anyway, there was a murder in the house many decades before the present time, which is how the main plot sets itself up. Many people, starting in the pilot episode, get brutally murdered in or around the Kappa house, while the women of Kappa, who call themselves the Chanel’s, and Dean Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis) attempt to find out whom the killer is. Arianna Grande gets stabbed in the head during mid text message while another pledge gets her head mowed off. I was not kidding when I said this show was gruesome, people.

Luckily, the comedy is sheer genius in this show, thanks to my personal favorite character, Chad Radwell. As more people are killed off, the more you think you know whom the killer is. Among the multiple cliffhangers and constant shutdowns of the characters you once thought was the killer, alas, we find out. The killer was…drum roll please…Hester Ulrich who was one of the Kappa sisters played by Glee’s Lea Michele. However, she made an elaborate alibi that convinced everyone that she was innocent and the Chanel’s were the real killers. The season ended with all three Chanel’s in prison.

Now, season two has a whole new aura to it. Say goodbye to the sorority house and say hello to the hospital. There have only been two episodes so far, but I am extremely excited to see where this season goes. Even more, Taylor Lautner appears this season, which is just as exciting as his role in the Twilight saga. And for all you Full House lovers, John Stamos plays Lautners partner. If that isn’t a good enough reason to jump on the bandwagon, I don’t know who else you persuade you.

Nonetheless, season two brings almost the same plot. There is a serial killer on the loose, but who it is seems impossible to figure out at this point. If you enjoy witty comedy while seeing mass murder take place, “Scream Queens” will not disappoint. “Scream Queens” premier’s new episodes on FOX every Tuesday at 8 pm.
