Critic reviews for Hell Week
Sure, Scream Queens is campy. It's ridiculous. But you can bet I'm already addicted. I'll leave you with this last image: Lea Michele, you're about to be my new phone background.
That said, this first death... absolutely set the tone for Scream Queens' future murders. There might be a few laughs involved, but make no mistake: There will be blood. And occasional tweeting.
Scream Queens is aggressively hitting the beats of the classic sorority slasher set-up... and I cannot wait to see how they tear these tropes UP!
Scream Queens is as funny and self-aware as it needs to be to not bore audiences, but also offers up enough mystery and intrigue to keep even the biggest skeptic entertained.
Murphy and his cohort have crafted an enigmatic, fully realized universe that I would argue rises above and beyond Glee...and American Horror Story.
