Which TV slasher is better: 'Scream Queens' or MTV's 'Scream'? | The Tylt
Horror is now a stable on TV, but in the last year, the two teen slashers have been going head-to-head for fans and acclaim. MTV's Scream is back, and season two of Scream Queens is highly anticipated and coming this fall.
Scream uses a similar premise to the movie franchise, with a whole new backdrop and revenge origin story. It's a horror-mystery-thriller that is self-aware; a heroine is stalked and is the leading final girl at the end (No real spoiler here); and the killer is discovered at the end of season one. Scream Queens is also a little meta, but it's a horror-comedy. The Fox series doesn't take itself too seriously. Like Ryan Murphy's previous show, Glee, which was filled with music pop culture, Scream Queens is filled with a more hilarious horror pop culture — especially poking fun at teen slashers from the '80s.
But which show is actually better: the serious horror-mystery, #MTVScream, following in the footsteps of an earlier franchise or the campy horror-comedy about vicious sorority sisters #ScreamQueens?
