Scream 107 Header

Scream
Season 1 Episode 7 “In The Trenches”
Directed by Leigh Janiak
Written by Jordan Rosenberg, Meredith Glynn
Created by Jill E. Blotevogel, Jay Beattie, Dan Dworkin
Starring Willa Fitzgerald, Bex Taylor-Klaus, John Karna, Amadeus Serafini, Connor Weil, Carlson Young, Jason Wiles, Tracy Middendorf, Tom Maden, Bobby Campo
MTV
Air date: Tuesday, August 11th, 2015, 10pm

MTV’s Scream has been more 90210 than Wes Craven’s Scream. After 4 murders in the first three episodes, we are now 3 straight shows sans death. Last week, suspicion fell on Audrey (Bex Taylor-Klaus), whose high school tormentors and girlfriend were the victims. Emma (Willa Fitzgerald) is convinced she’s not guilty, and after her mom reveals some truths about the mysterious Brandon James killings, Audrey is freed. We have suspects galore. There’s the Mayor, who may have killed his wife. There’s the weird podcaster Piper, with a dark past (Amelia Rose Blaire). Jake and Will (Tom Maden & Connor Weil) have plenty to hide, and of course Abercrombie… sorry I mean Kieran (Amadeus Serafini), who seems to show up and disappear when he wants. After a long blood drought, last week’s episode ended with Will and Piper attacked by the masked killer in a garage, with Will being stabbed and carried off.

Last week MTV’s Scream made me… well, very angry. Main character Emma (Willa Fitzgerald) who is being both physically and technologically stalked by a masked killer (who by the way has killed 3 of her friends already), AND who just got exposed on the net, as her first sexual encounter went viral decided to… you guessed it… HAVE PUBLIC OUTDOOR SEX IN THE DARK WOODS!!! If nothing else, that should lessen her chances of survival in a show based off a franchise known for its adherence of horror movie “rules.” Then again, Neve Campbell’s Sid did have sex with one of the killers in the original, and she survived the whole series.

Last week on MTV’s new horror series Scream, things got good and scary. Riley’s death put the whole town on notice, and when Emma (Willa Fitzgerald) was sent an old yearbook filled with clues, she, Audrey (Bex Taylor-Klaus), and Noah (John Karna) end up in a horror movie staple – the abandoned hospital. There they find bloody pig remains, a Brandon James mask, and Tyler’s rotting head. Noah is convinced it’s the killer’s lair, but Sheriff Hudson (James Wiles) interrupts, and the three are safe for another week. One of the things retrieved from the hospital was a flash drive; the only useful thing taken off it is a recording of Emma’s first sexual encounter with Will (Connor Weil) and whoops… it just went viral.

“Hello Emma. How’s it feel to be the star of the show?”

Scream The TV Series Header

Only 5 episodes into its first season on MTV, Scream has been renewed for a second season on the cable network. The network, once upon a time known for music videos, forayed into the world of serial horror series with the hit show Teen Wolf in 2011. Piggybacking off that success, and the explosion of horror themed shows on network and cable TV, Scream debuted in late June. And while the show tends to be more Melrose Place and less Halloween, it has maintained a steady audience in its targeted demographic.

YES! This is what I want from an episodic horror series! After a disappointing third episode, which felt like a bad episode of the OC, MTV’s Scream hit all the right buttons this week. The show encapsulated everything you’d expect from something called Scream. And in an odd twist, the acting wasn’t bad either!

After plenty of texting and YouTube uploading throughout the first two episodes, MTV’s Scream finally got “Scream-ish” at the end last week when an ADT-style security worker turned out to be the killer toying with Emma (Willa Fitzgerald) on the phone. The police are no closer to solving Nina’s murder and Audrey (Bex Taylor-Klaus) is distraught over her closet-girlfriend Rachel’s suicide (which was really a murder). Podcaster and serial killer analyst Piper Shaw (Amelia Rose Blaire) arrived looking into Lakewood’s haunted past, and Noah (John Karna) is having too much of a good time providing background and exposition.

MTV’s Scream series got off to a pleasant surprise start last week, and now it’s time to see if the show can keep it’s momentum with episode 2, “Hello Emma.” The show started with Lakewood head bitch Nina (Bella Thorne) filming and uploading a video of Audrey (Bex Taylor-Klaus) having a steamy lesbian makeout session in her car in a parking lot. The other girl Rachel, a cutter, isn’t coping well with the social media backlash, and when “Audrey” calls her, it’s a set up for our killer to hang her from her porch and frame it as suicide.

I am usually a staunch anti-remake guy. But the Scream series that premiered debuting Tuesday night on MTV intrigued me. For once, the concept actually makes sense. The original movie itself was a self referential genre exposing (and revitalizing) film. Its best moments were when it poked fun at itself and the horror genre.

For those living under a rock these last 20 years, Scream was about a horror movie obsessed serial killer(s) who tortured victims over the phone. Nearly two decades later, with social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter, the killers of the series can actually play their sadistic games even better.

Prelude To The Series, MTV ‘Scream’ Movie Marathon Today!

Scream The TV Series Header

“What’s your favorite scary movie?”

By the mid 1990s, the horror genre was struggling to survive after a decade of cheesy sequels and rip-offs. By the time Scream debuted in theaters in 1996, there had been 22 (!!!) Halloween, Nightmare on Elm St, and Friday the 13th movies combined, and dozens of lazy slasher retreads. But it’s genre icon director Wes Craven and screenwriter Kevin Williamson, who reinvented the horror genre with Scream, a self referential, homage to the classics of the 70s and early 80s, all the while making fun of itself and its genre’s tired cliches. When top line star, Drew Barrymore was killed off mere minutes in, audiences knew all bets were off. The film series which expanded to a fourth installment in 2011, help make its stars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette household names. Writer Williamson went to write many other teen-focused horror films and TV series (The Following just wrapped after 3 seasons).
