As an avid American Horror Story fan I cannot wait for Hotel to air on the 7th of October. Lady Gaga running a strange and bizarre hotel that catches the attention of a homicide detective? Yes, please! And creators, Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy, promised a darker themed season than the previous, as well as a tie in to the first season. This might be one of the best seasons yet.
But what do we have to hold us over until the 7th of October dawns on us? If you need something to treat withdrawal symptoms from AHS or if you need something that’s a bit lighter in flavour, Scream Queens might be perfect for you.
*Possible spoilers ahead*
The Kappa Kappa Tau sorority consists of high-class fashion, vicious bitches (yes, I used the B-word) and murder. We go back to 1995 where a pledge has a baby in a bathtub during a Kappa Kappa Tau party (you read correctly). The pledge then bleeds to death while Waterfalls by TLC is playing downstairs (yes, that happened).
We then fast forward to 2015 where we meet Chanel Oberlin, current queen of Kappa Kappa Tau. Chanel is ruthless, vicious and deadly. She has three minions who she refers to as Chanel #2, Chanel #3 and Chanel #5 as she does not care to know any of their names. Chanel #4 apparently died from meningitis.
It is suspected that Chanel filled her presidential predecessor’s spray-tan tank with hydrochloric acid to gain her spot as president. Due to this event, Dean Cathy Munsch, has a personal vendetta against the sorority and its current president. But when the Dean cannot disband the sorority, she forces them to accept ANY pledge who wishes to become a member (which includes a candle blogger and “Deaf Taylor Swift”), thereby damaging Chanel’s reputation.
When a prank to scare the pledges away goes horribly wrong, a familiar 80s and 90s slasher movie commences. Think Mean Girls meets Scream. It’s something you need that you never knew you wanted.
What more do you need in a show that has a talented cast, great music (they played a little Bon Jovi!) and a masked terror that is out to slash-and-dash?
If you need a little more convincing, you could always watch the trailer.
It’s like chewing gum, once you start, you can’t stop!
I have not forgotten that Supernatural season 11 airs on the 7th of October. I have just been very relaxed about it, it’s not that important. Ha! Just kidding! There will be a fangirl ramble soon!
