I had my misgivings about this. I really did. Those first trailers looked like over-stylised, Dutch angle-fucked, substance-less trash.
But still, for some reason I can’t even pin down, I expected Scream Queens to be decent.
Didn’t I learn anything from Glee and seasons 3 and 4 of American Horror Story?
It’s about time I featured another horror movie, my most beloved of genres, on It’s Not Shit. It’s been almost two years since the last one. And that one was nowhere near as gripping as It Follows.
Which is almost as gripping as a big, strong man holding you down while putting chloroform in your face before giving you a lecture on a hell demon he’s just given you via his penis.
I reckon “Oh, honey. No” will be a recurring theme when it comes to MTV’s Scream television adaptation.
As I’ve mentioned a couple of times before, Scream is one of my Sacred Three: my favourite three movies of all time (Jurassic Park and Jawbreaker being the other two). I didn’t have high hopes for this version, and those hopes were not bolstered by the appalling (and, mercifully, cancelled) Eye Candy.
Well, Scream’s better than Eye Candy.
But not by much.
