* EvilVsEvil: Even before the Red Devil starts killing people this is in full effect. The KKT sisters are racist, classist, homophobic bitches of the first order, but the dean who wants to shut them down is a bitter, resentful borderline rapist who hates the students.

* OneOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: Grace is presented as beautiful ''and white'' unlike the other pledges and probably someone who would get into Kappa under normal circumstances.


Season two features a {{time skip}} of three years after season one, and moves the focus from Kappa Kappa Tau to a hospital bought out by Dean Munsch, staffed by Chanels One, Three, and Five, and Zayday.

** In-universe in Season Two where Chanel no. 1 doesn't know what any of Brock's pop culture are (like ''Series/{{MASH}})''.

Added DiffLines:

* AffectionateParody: The entire series is one for the slasher genre as a whole. Everyone is an idiot, villain, {{Jerkass}}, or AssholeVictim but that just makes it more entertaining when the slasher carves them all up. The plots are also completely nonsensical--which only adds to the appeal.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Expy}}: The Chanels are one for the three Heathers from Film/{{Heathers}}.

Added DiffLines:

* IdenticallyNamedGroup: Invoked with the Chanels, a group of sorority girls who go by "Chanel" followed by a number. However, only Chanel #1 is actually named Chanel; the rest took the names on after being inducted into Kappa Kappa Tau.


** Many characters are revealed to have ties to the incident in 1995: Dean Munsch and Miss Bean were there, and helped cover it all up; [[spoiler:Gigi]] was the sister of a sorority sister involved with the incident, Grace's mom, Bethany was the girl whose negligence lead to the death of the girl in the bathtub; [[spoiler:Wes Gardner]] fathered Grace through Bethany, but was a student at the university, and is also the father of the bathtub twins.

Added DiffLines:

* ActorAllusion:
** Billie Lourd, who plays Chanel #3, is Creator/CarrieFisher's daughter. The earmuffs her character often wears are a homage to her mother's iconic [[Franchise/StarWars Princess Leia hairdo]]. Not to mention in the Season 1 finale, she wears her hair in the buns.
** Creator/JamieLeeCurtis was one of the original scream queens, in ''Film/{{Halloween|1978}}''.
** In "Seven Minutes in Hell", Chanel calls Grace "Nancy Drew" as an insult. [[Film/NancyDrew Of Course, Emma Roberts would know all about Nancy Drew, wouldn't she?]]
** Jamie Lee Curtis also creates an almost shot for shot homage to her mother Janet Leigh and her famous scene from ''Film/{{Psycho}}'' in "Mommie Dearest."
** In "Haunted House", Grace dresses as Creator/KateHudson. Her father is played by Kate's real-life brother. In the same episode, she meets a woman whose younger self was played Grace Phipps, who played her best friend on ''Series/TheNineLivesOfChloeKing''.
** Niecy Nash had also played a police officer on ''Reno 911''.
** In season 2 premiere, Dr.Cascade played by Creator/TaylorLautner diagnoses a woman who has Hypertrichosis aka Werewolf Syndrome. Lautner played a werewolf in the ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' series. There's also a joke about his body being cold, another ''Twilight'' reference.
** Creator/EmmaRoberts, who plays Chanel Oberlin, is the daughter of Creator/EricRoberts, who played the Master in [[Recap/DoctorWhoTVMTheTVMovie the Doctor Who movie]]. In the season 2 episode ''Halloween Blues'', in a rage, Chanel asks "did this crappy dorm turn into a ''Series/DoctorWho'' TARDIS while I was asleep, and transport us all back to Ancient Egypt?"


Added DiffLines:

* CastingGag: In "Dorkus", the Chanels think they've captured the Red Devil, but when they unmask him, it's just some pizza delivery guy who was forced to wear the costume and was fitted with a dynamite vest. Said pizza delivery guy is played by Riley Schmidt, who is the man under the mask every time the Red Devil appears to kill someone.

* FollowTheLeader: There's no question that the show is HEAVILY influenced by slasher sendups particularly the ''Franchise/{{Scream}}'' franchise. It doesn't help that it premiered right after a television adaptation of said franchise on MTV.
