In 1995, a terrible accident occurred in the Kappa Kappa Tau sorority at Wallace University, a mystery that was never solved. Amy Meyer was rushing downstairs in the party to Bethany Mulligan, Mandy and Coco, telling that something really bad happened. Bethany says the blood on Amy's hands is her period blood, and she says that isn't her blood. The girls rush into the bathroom, only to find Sophia Doyle all bloody in the bathtub, Bethany asks that who told her to have a baby tonight (not noticing that she was pregnant), and Sophia apologizes to an angry Bethany for the embarrassing situation and begs for help, but the girls deny to do so and return to the party to listen to Waterfalls by TLC. When the three sorority girls finally return, they witness Sophia's dead body (while her eyes are stuck open, and her mouth is a little open) and a distressed Amy announcing that she is dead, the girls become scared and confused on what to do next while Sophia's body remains lifeless sitting in the bloody tub. In the present day, Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts) is the new president of the sisterhood, and with the help of her minions, Chanel #2 (Ariana Grande), Chanel #3 (Billie Lourd), and Chanel #5 (Abigail Breslin), make Kappa a house full of glamour, beauty, and evil. Tired of this, the dean of the campus, Cathy Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis), requires The Chanels to accept anyone who wants to be part of Kappa. This opens place to people like Grace Gardner (Skyler Samuels), a girl trying to discover more about her mother and Kappa's past with the help of her love interest Pete Martínez (Diego Boneta) and overprotective father Wes Gardner (Oliver Hudson), Zayday Williams (Keke Palmer), Grace's genius best friend who wants to become Kappa's new president, Hester Ulrich (Lea Michele), who suffers of scoliosis and is obsessed with Chanel, Jennifer (Breezy Eslin), a candle vlogger, Sam (Jeanna Han), a tomboy lesbian, and Tiffany DeSalle (Whitney Meyer), a deaf Taylor Swift obsessed girl. This threatens Chanel's popularity and Kappa's reputation, causing major problems in her relationship with Chad Radwell (Glen Powell), the rich leader of the Dickie Dollar Scholars fraternity and most popular guy in the University.

Full of anger, Chanel and her minions try to make the new pledges' time at the house a living hell, but what begins as a dirty game, ends in a series of murders caused by Red Devil, a serial killer who hides behind the mask of the university mascot. The race for survival begins in an environment where anyone can be attacked, anyone can die, and anyone can be the killer. Will the Kappa girls discover the true identity of the psychopathic murderer and come out alive?
