“There are two things that always happen at a slumber party,” announces Kappa’s new co-president Zayday Williams (Keke Palmer). “Someone experiments with lesbianism and secrets are revealed.” What she forgets to add is that in the twisted universe of Scream Queens, someone (or multiple someones) will definitely get… »10/21/15 11:47am10/21/15 11:47am

In Classic Ryan Murphy Fashion, Scream Queens Loses Sight of Itself

The broad plot of Scream Queens is fairly simple: A college campus is terrorized by a masked serial killer and a sorority—the killer’s primary target—tries to find out who’s murdering people while (poorly) avoiding getting killed themselves.

How Much Do These Scream Queens Love Each Other, Really?

Lea Michele and Emma Roberts, stars of Fox’s Scream Queens, hit the red carpet premiere in Los Angeles last night looking overjoyed to be united once again.

Oh No! Scream Queens Looks Like It Might Be Bad!

I’ve been dying to see Scream Queens since it was announced: Ryan Murphy-created horror-comedy about sorority murders starring Emma Roberts? Sign me up! A longer trailer just dropped, though, and after some hokey Diablo Cody-style slang invention (“Pissy Spacek”? eesh), a stereotypical flashback-to-the-’80s device,… »5/19/15 9:16pm5/19/15 9:16pm

Let's Hope Everyone Gets Murdered in Ryan Murphy's Scream Queens

Emma Roberts and Jamie Lee Curtis Star in Ryan Murphy's Scream Queens

Over the last couple seasons, 23-year-old Emma Roberts has proven to be his golden child, of sorts, landing strong leading roles in Coven and Freak Show.
