Critic Reviews for Seven Minutes in Hell

Scream Queens, you bored me this week. I'm not proud, but I succumbed to my "Ryan Murphy Doesn't Make Great Shows" mentality once more

Nov 18, 2015 | Full Review…

Leave it to Scream Queens to close out an episode that had the most deaths since the series premiere with a friggin' dance party.

Seven minutes in heaven turns into one hellish evening for the Kappa Kappa Tau sisters -- what else would one expect when you throw a slumber party as two maniacal serial killers dressed as Red Devils are on the loose?

If ever you need to make an air-tight case for staying in on a Saturday night to binge-watch Mafia shows on A&E, use Chanel Oberlin as Exhibit A. After all, the lessons she gleaned from mob culture may very well have saved her life this week.

I promised myself at the beginning of this season... I was just going to enjoy this crumbly little trifle for what it is: a silly pop confection full of zippy one-liners.

Nov 13, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Scream Queens often feels like an outlet for the showrunners to throw their own past work under the bus, but this episode just so happens to find the happy medium between that and simply sending it up. Like I said before: It's actually fun.

[Scream Queens is] a comedy wearing a Halloween mask, and it has the snappiest one-liners I ever did hear. However there is a bit of a problem right now whenever Niecy Nash or Dean Munsch isn't onscreen, and that is that all the characters are loathsome.

Nov 17, 2015 | Full Review…

We're quickly losing any sense of urgency/immediacy and watching the show is starting to feel a bit pointless. We're treading water; the plot isn't moving any further at all.

Nov 11, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Seven Minutes in Hell was one of the series' weaker installments, though it did have several gems.
