    The idea is a guaranteed ratings winner: a reality TV show where six contestants audition for a part in a horror movie, a chance to be a "scream queen." Whoever lasts the night in a haunted house, rigged with shriek-inducing special effects, will walk away rich and famous...if they make it out alive.

    JLynn says: "Parody of slasher/horror films"
    "Slasher Movie As Told By Muppets."

    What did you like best about Scream Queen? What did you like least?

    I liked that it obviously knew its source material-- horror movies-- and referenced them accordingly. The entity was creepy and creative. Unfortunately the end was predictable, and the narrator was so off base that she presented as incompetent. Her vocal characterizations did frequenty call to mind muppets.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The entity was interesting, and the main character would have been likeable if the narrator hadn't given her a bad Marilyn Monroe impression in the place of a voice.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Her first mistake was speaking. Her attempts at accents were distracting, her attempts at giving someone an ethnic presence was confusing, and her attempts at sexy were irritating.


    Was Scream Queen worth the listening time?

    With a competent narrator, possibly. But really, if you've ever seen a by the numbers slasher movie you've essentially read this. I would be curious to read it in print form, however.


    Any additional comments?

    Miss it in audible format. The narration is so bad it's impossible to enjoy the story.
