The premiere of the highly anticipated new horror-comedy Scream Queens may still be a few weeks away, but anxious fans can now whet their appetites for the scares (and laughs) to come by watching the show’s title sequence.

“The show is a hybrid of wickedly funny and incredibly scary story telling set in a sorority house on a college campus,” star (and original scream queen) Jamie Lee Curtis previously told PEOPLE of Ryan Murphy‘s new Fox show. “I play the dean, creates this scenario of mayhem by forcing the sorority accept anyone who wants to become a member.”

And while Curtis is highly revered by her costars, it’s the shows’ co-eds who are highlighted in the extended title sequence.

“I feel like we got very lucky,” costar Lea Michele said of filming with costars Emma Roberts, Abigail Breslin and Keke Palmer. “Everyone is unique and has a real sense of who they are. That eliminates a lot of competitiveness that might have come into the process.”

Scream Queens premieres Sept. 22 on Fox.
