The Full ‘Scream Queens’ Trailer Proves to be Hilarious

The full Scream Queens trailer is absolutely hilarious. Dark comedy is my favorite, so mixing bitchy, bubbly sorority girls with horror and comedy really tickles my funny bone. Scream Queens looks like it will be a perfect play on classic horror tropes and sorority movies. It was hard not to think about movies like Sorority RowHeathers, or Jawbreaker when watching the trailer.

Scream Queens premieres this fall on FOX. It stars Emma Roberts, Jaime Lee Curtis, Lea Michele, Keke Palmer, Nick Jonas, and Ariana Grande.
