Critic reviews for Ghost Stories

Scream Queens doesn't have structure. It's a show gone rogue. "Ghost Stories" is kind of a mess. It's convoluted, not funny, and frankly doesn't even make sense. But that's okay! I'm going to honor the attempt.

I had a couple moments of disenchantment with it, but since its cast has been pared down via murder and its central crime streamlined into a series of comedy set pieces, I have been genuinely looking forward to it. "Ghost Stories" was great.

Scream Queens delivered a great episode this week as it offered a deeper look into the Red Devil Killers' plot and lost a few characters along the way (maybe, if anyone actually ever dies on this show).

The one thing I really loved about the Chanel arc of the episode was her extremely meta line at the end.

November 18, 2015 | Rating: 3.9/5 | Full Review…

Considering the two-hour premiere had such massive potential, and the show has steadily declined since then, in both ratings and sheer interest factor, "Scream Queens" may have worked better as either a movie or a limited series, with fewer episodes.

Never have I ever wanted a TV novelization more than The Collected Ghost Stories of Denise Hemphill. Girl needs to put down those handcuffs and pick up a pen right this minute!
