I don't know how many were expecting a lot from the new, daring series of authors of successful American Horror Story, but the "Scream Queens" of Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy in collaboration with Ian Brennan (Glee) was a small surprise for 2015. And we say small because it was objectively difficult to manage a stunner as lightness of tone and style chabalediarikoy.
The series has a "nostalgic" character somehow drawing ideas from the 80s slasher of adopting classic slasher horror elements such as women's sororities, colleges, the mysterious killer who slaughters vengeance, amyaloi and arrogant goides and of course the classic type of scream queen woman actor who here responds with multiple representations. But places the events in 2015 making a stop in the middle of the 90s which uses as a ' source ' of evil that evolves in today.
Female members of a college fraternity KKT American murdered by a ruthless murderer who dressed in uniform Devil whenever comes loose. Occasionally the ball gets and other unfortunate victims embroiled in developments. One of the neofermenes girls (Skyler Samuels) is trying to solve the mystery with the help of a young man who declares "Reporter". The investigation will lead them in the year 1995 and at a party of the same fraternity where there was a tragic incident. One of the girls gave birth in the bathtub but was left helpless by the participants with the result that died. And the baby who had given birth had made wings …
During the filming of scenes, hilarious Jamie Lee Curtis was holding in her hand a PIN which was pushing every time she's come to laugh so you don't constantly interrupted the funny scenes.
"Scream Queens" has the expected comic elements that make it fun. Acts, characters and one-liners guarantee plenty of laughter in most cases. There is inspiration in scenario despite the use of recycled material and embarrassing excesses. The massacres are numerous but unobtrusive enough in their portrayal. Sometimes however the series goes beyond the temperate of himself showing no qualms harsh scenes such as hand cut with an electric saw or heel mpiximo in the eye causing momentary shock to most susceptible. Scaling the finale is riveting. The revelations are made with skill and intelligent management of available material.
In the abundance of some characters stand out with ease. Such is always good at Jamie Lee Curtis role of kosmitoros with insatiable sexual appetites, the prodigious Glen Powell who embodies the role of the narcissist "Stallion" making our guts to hurt from laughing, the up-and-coming Emma Roberts as the ultimate sadistria President of the fraternity who enjoys the humiliation of "subjects" and Diego Boneta that when pulling out from inside of the Matthew McConaughey of True Detective is apolaystikotatos.
The rich and expansive package of "Scream Queens" we find references on older Classic slasher horror movies-like "Friday the 13th" and "A Nightmare On Elm Street '. These together with various additional elements such as songs of the 80s and 90s (eg. the Waterfalls of TLC, Bon Jovi's Always) will awaken feelings of nostalgia to viewers who grew up in those decades. Certainly the "Scream Queens" is no masterpiece but can you keep pleasant company comedy-horror direction in 13 episodes. Indeed, periodically becomes highly intelligent, probably more than they believed they themselves the creators of an intentionally "gkafatzidikis" series like this.

Many funny, ironic and stinging one-liners, remarkable performances from most actors, dynamic scaling and interesting revelations in the last episodes, the exceptional presence of Glen Powell from Asia in the role of seducer Chad.
Some characters seem parapanisioi, sporadic defects in the scenario with some indifferent ypoplokes, anempneysto humor in minute points of the circle.
