As one would expect, Scream Queens has geared up for an eventful Halloween themed episode this week. But before we jump into that, there’s a special message from Chanel to all her Instagram followers. Surprisingly Halloween is Chanel’s favorite holiday, or maybe this isn’t surprising if we think she’s a sorority girl capable of murder. Either way, she goes big, deeming it Chanel-O-Ween and sending out boxes with strange Halloween gag gifts inside. This is a clear parody of Swiftmas, when Taylor Swift reached out to fans on Christmas. The scenes are bizarre, funny, and a little offensive but overall very Chanel.

So, from me to you readers. Happy Chanel-O-Ween.

Spoilers ahead, Sweetie…



While Scream Queens received some mixed reviews for last week’s premier I think the latest installment definitely holds promise that the show knows how to balance horror, mystery and comedy. Mainly: less Chanel being a horrible person (not funny) and more frat boys screaming their heads off (funny.)

Spoilers ahead, Sweetie…

Prolific maestro of the horror film genre, Wes Craven, died yesterday, August 30 at the age of 76, leaving behind a legacy of films that has forever changed the way audiences experience horror movies. Below are my favorites. Leave me a comment and let me know which movies I missed and what else I need to put on my Netflix queue.


1) The Serpent and the Rainbow (1988)

This was the first horror film I ever saw. It was at my mom’s friend’s house and, while the grown ups were distracted by booze and wedding planning, I hid behind the couch (I was ten, ok) and watched this film about voodoo and necromancy and became hooked on the genre. the-serpent-and-the-warrior

2) The Hills Have Eyes (1977)

I recently went to Las Vegas and, during the drive through Baker, immediately made reference to this film when discussing what terrified me lurking in the shadows of the hills all around us. That’s the thing with Wes Craven films–they are not only horror-filled, but they’ve also become part of an iconic pop cultural phenomenon that mean something to almost everyone.
