"The Only Thing We Have to Fear Is Fear Itself" - Franklin D.
28 May 2016 | by pipecaxSee all my reviews

"Halloween" already here, care!, he's behind you.

This "Scream Queens" Review contains spoilers. If you have not seen "Pumpkin Patch" episode, please, do not read, this could destroy it.

Halloween is a celebration very near, because of this, Ryan and his team have had the possibility to leverage it (and extend it) to the maximum. Two episodes with a central theme has been the target of chapter four and five, a great trick with huge results. While "Haunted House" gave us a little more questions, corpses and revelations, "Pumpkin Patch" is the episode that most satirizes a beloved classic, too much humor and stupidity perfectly added within your fabulous ridiculousness.

"Chanel-o-ween" be still on, despite the fact that the Dean has declared curfew to all students in the campus. keeping in mind this, Chanel Oberlin refuses to waste an October 31 of her rich popularity, therefore, decides to make a exact replica "The Shining's" maze to win funds to mortal disease of black hairy tongue. Her group of friends make an alibi to put her behind bars, even though, all this game is to incriminate to Chanel #5 by all. Her punishment, they force her to start all the pumpkins of the garden, where obviously, Red Killer will appear. Roger and Doger generate a dispute by the love of their life in the middle of the murder, one of the twins die, but, Chanel #5 is saved. Zayday is missing, therefore, one team is prepared to go to save her. Funny moments are experienced in rescue, weakening to the assassin, however, Gigi is involved in the murders. She pretends that he had beaten her, an excuse to let it escape. Zayday returns in time for the voting of the new president in KKT and Gigi has an unexpected encounter with the killer, without further ado, "Scream Queens" wins another hit.

"Pumpkin Patch" exploded too many classics horror tropes, on this occasion, "The Shining" was victim of Ryan Murphy. He knows very well in what position put each element, and a maze full of snow, a dark night and a killer behind them show that it is a series of pure horror and comedy. It was logical that a man with chainsaw would appear in full light of the Moon, his victims would be a pair of twins and a repressed diva. The script and the performances are so strange as needed, everything is a game rigid in order to have fun to the public. Walk back from their own footprints, fight for the love of their lives in a murder, speak in a strong voice for killer listen them, a parody to each existing horror film, but with more quality and sobriety than "Scary Movie" films, öbvi.

Another of its great satires tonight was the saga James Wan's "Saw". The camera generates a full shot to the workshop of the killer (Saw III), its masks, weapons, its food, its clothes, its plans, practically its home. They are not ridicule it, only take it borrowed to make an exciting scene. According to the end of the chapter, Red Devil be in love with Zayday, a clue that does not help much to the discovery of the murderer, since, exist characters LGBT in the series, may be a man or a woman, although it is an interesting plot twist can be leveraged much, although it should be careful, because they can deviate from its tone comic to something more romantic and youthful.

We are in the middle of the journey, more theories are born. With content that we have seen so far, we can say that Gigi Caldwell's hands are smeared blood, Boone Clemens not is dead and is also a suspect, Cathy Munsch is guilty of the massacre, she is to blame for the massacre that is going on. Also, we can deduce that the murderer can be any of the deceased characters or any of the alive characters. "Scream Queens" is a smart show (Ryan is part of the team), they won't give us a killer incoherent and illogical, surely, they will surprise us, we only have to look carefully, the guilty is before us.

The second episode of "Halloween" clearly retains its goal, scare and laugh, "Chanel-o-ween" was a help to fulfill that mission, and so far "Scream Queens" scoring its best episode to date, with delicate and appropriate plot twists, an infinity of ideas, more deaths, more suspects and more ridiculous that amuse us every week.
