Scream First Look: Meet the New Teens Being Hunted by Ghostface 13 January, 2022 - 11:00pm

Paramount Pictures and Spyglass Entertainment have released a handful of first look photos, giving fans a look at classic characters as well as the new teens squaring off with Ghostface in Scream, the latest installment of the franchise that launched with Wes Craven's Scream in 1996. The photos include a first look at Dylan Minnette as "Wes," a character named for Craven, who passed away in 2015. There's also a shot of Jenna Ortega nearly perfectly replicating a shot from Drew Barrymore's iconic Scream introduction. What else does the movie have to offer? Well, the photos aren't exactly revealing. You will probably have to wait for the release of the trailer (likely later this week) to get a sense for who most of the characters are.

The images were released via Entertainment Weekly, where you can see a number of them, but you can check out a few cool ones below. Most of the cast get at least one shot in the photos, although it's interesting that the original generation and the teens don't seem to share much screen time if this is a good sampling of the movie at all.

Check a few of them out below:

In the vein of 2018's Halloween, the upcoming Scream is not a reboot, even though it eschews the numbering scheme of the previous sequels and just takes the name of the 1996 original. Instead, it will be a sequel, featuring several members of the original cast, which reinvents the franchise in a way that will theoretically give it a chance to thrive after the disappointing box office returns of 2011's Scream 4

"This is the fifth one… it's not Scream 5, though," returning star Courteney Cox said in an interview on The Drew Barrymore Show. "This is Scream. The directors are incredible, they're making it absolutely…it's a new franchise. It's hip. It's scary. It's just a new Scream. It's not a reboot, it's not a remake, it's just a brand new launch. I think it's gonna be fantastic."

Cox will reprise her role of Gale Weathers for the new Scream movie, starring alongside other returning cast members Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott, David Arquette as Dewey Riley, and Marley Shelton as Deputy Judy Hicks. Quaid leads an extended roster of newcomers that will appear in the film which also includes Melissa Barrera, Dylan Minnette, Jenna Ortega, Mason Gooding, Kyle Gallner, Jasmin Savoy Brown, and Mikey Madison. 

The new Scream is scheduled to debut in theaters on January 14, 2022.

Ghostface Takes Over AMC FearFest Today With the First Three ‘Scream’ Movies

The second full week of October is upon us, and once again there’s no shortage of brand new horror being brought to the table on the road to the best day of the year: Halloween, of course!

In fact, this week is loaded with big returns for beloved horror franchises, including Child’s Play, I Know What You Did Last Summer, Halloween, and even Romero’s Day of the Dead.

Here’s everything new you can look forward to this week…

One of the biggest new releases of the week, Don Mancini’s original franchise returns with “Chucky,” which premieres on both SYFY and USA this Tuesday night, October 12th.

In the wake of the Child’s Play remake, the series brings us back to the original continuity of the franchise, with returning fan favorites featured alongside brand new faces.

Brad Dourif is back as Chucky and Jennifer Tilly is back as Tiffany in “Chucky,” which will continue the storylines from the *original* movies and their recent sequels, Curse and Cult of Chucky. Also returning are Fiona Dourif as Nica Pierce, Alex Vincent as Andy Barclay, and Christine Elise as Kyle. Devon Sawa (Final DestinationHunter Hunter) also stars.

In the series, “After a vintage Chucky doll turns up at a suburban yard sale, an idyllic American town is thrown into chaos as a series of horrifying murders begin to expose the town’s hypocrisies and secrets. Meanwhile, the arrival of enemies — and allies — from Chucky’s past threatens to expose the truth behind the killings, as well as the demon doll’s untold origins as a seemingly ordinary child who somehow became this notorious monster.”

Francesco Giannini‘s indie horror movie Hall will also be released on Tuesday, coming to VOD.

In the film, scattered victims are thrust into the fight of their lives, when a hotel hallway is ravaged by a mysterious virus. You can watch the official trailer right here.

Netflix’s docuseries “The Movies That Made Us” returns with new episodes on Tuesday, and the reason we’re mentioning it here on BD is because the new season is very horror-heavy.

Season 3 premieres on October 12, and the films being covered include A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Halloween, Aliens, RoboCop and Coming to America!

Moving on to Wednesday, October 13, Netflix’s brand new original Fever Dream (Distancia de Rescate) will begin streaming, directed by Claudia Llosa and based on the novel.

“A young woman lies dying far from home. A boy sits beside her. She is not his mother. He is not her child. Together, they tell a haunting story of broken souls, an invisible threat, and the power and desperation of family.” Watch the trailer here.

The other release for this Wednesday is the new Disney Plus series “Just Beyond,” a kid-friendly nightmare that’s based on the same-titled graphic novels from R.L. Stine.

All eight episodes will begin streaming on Wednesday, October 13th.

A brand new Shudder Original, The Medium will be available on Thursday, October 14, the new film from director Banjong Pisanthanakun (Shutter). In this one…

“A documentary team follows Nim, a shaman based in Northern Thai, the Isan area, and encounters her niece Mink showing strange symptoms that seem to be of inheritance of shamanism. The team decides to follow Mink, hoping to capture the shaman lineage passing on to the next generation, but her bizarre behavior becomes more extreme.”

And that brings us to Friday, October 15th, which is a MASSIVE day for horror. For starters, Halloween Kills will finally be released, both in theaters and at home on Peacock.

Michael Myers has of course survived the events of Halloween 2018, and this time around Laurie Strode will be joined by the entire town of Haddonfield to take him down… again.

Halloween Kills is a true franchise reunion, with several characters and cast members from John Carpenter’s original classic including Charles Cyphers returning as Leigh Brackett, Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace, and Nancy Stephens as Nurse Marion Chambers. As co-writer Danny McBride explains, it was about “finding ways to keep them involved with the story.”

The body count for this one, we hear, will be extremely high…

Another franchise returns this Friday with the premiere of Amazon’s new series “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” based on Lois Duncan’s novel and the 1990s slasher film.

Amazon’s “I Know What You Did Last Summer” is a modern take on the 1997 film that honors the same chilling premise – in a town full of secrets, a group of teenagers are stalked by a mysterious killer a year after a fatal accident on their graduation night.

And then there’s the SYFY series “Day of the Dead,” also premiering this Friday and inspired by/based on/set in the world of(?) George A. Romero’s horror classic of the same name.

“Day of the Dead” is the story of six strangers trying to survive the first 24 hours of an undead invasion. This ode to George A. Romero’s famous flesh-eaters reminds us that sometimes all it takes to bring people together is a horde of hungry zombies trying to rip them apart.

Steven Kostanski (The Void, Leprechaun Returns, Psycho Goreman) directed 4 episodes.

Rachel Nichols stars in Miles Doleac’s new movie Demigod, which will release in theaters and on VOD platforms Friday, October 15, 2021, courtesy of Gravitas Ventures.

“Nichols plays Robin, a woman who travels with her husband (Yohance Myles) to Germany’s Black Forest upon learning that her huntsman grandfather has died and left her all his worldly possessions. Upon arrival, a terrifying secret forces her to reckon with her family’s past and a mysterious ritual she thought was the stuff of fairy tales.”

The road to Hell is paved with a new anthology horror movie titled Grave Intentions, the final new release you can expect this coming Friday. The late Robert Forster stars.

In this anthology of chills, thrills, and kills, a practitioner of the magical arts teaches the basics of her craft. The most important lesson? You must be mindful of your intention. Five of her customers are about to learn this the hard way: A woman looking to change her luck gets ensnared in a dangerous game; In the quest for justice, a man is transformed into a monster; In an attempt to right a wrong, a woman rescues a stray cat; A father and son are torn apart when a joke goes too far; A young girl needs protection from the demons in her life.

The fresh horror continues into the weekend with the SYFY premiere of the Slumber Party Massacre remake on Saturday, October 16, which all of us on BD recommend you check out.

Trace wrote in his review, “Suffice it to say that Slumber Party Massacre is not the film you think it’s going to be, and that’s what makes this such a pleasant surprise.”

Danishka Esterhazy (The Banana Splits Movie) directed this “contemporary twist-filled reimagining of the 1982 slasher cult classic.” In the new movie, “A slumber party turns into a bloodbath, as a psychotic serial killer wielding a power drill disrupts the fun.”

And then on Sunday, October 17th, “Fear the Walking Dead” returns to AMC for the premiere of the show’s seventh season. Here’s the full plot rundown for the new season…

“Teddy (John Glover) brought about his vision of “The End” when he detonated nuclear warheads across the Texas landscape, but it will be up to those who survived to decide what “The Beginning” will look like. And they’ll have to do it in a world devoid of light and hope, where the outside air is just as deadly as the walkers they face.”

Aisha Tyler will also appear in the new season.

Scream 2022: Even the Cast Didn't Know Who Was Under Ghostface's Mask for Some of the Shoot - IGN

IGN 11 October, 2021 - 11:32pm

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, director Tyler Gillett said that the crew had intentionally kept the identity of Ghostface a secret for as long as possible in order to ensure that as many people as possible were kept in the dark for the film's big 'whodunit' reveal.

"We were really careful to protect the big reveal of the movie," says Gillett. "We went as far as to withhold those moments in the script from the actors. We wanted everybody involved, to the degree that we could, to be a part of the whodunit. Obviously, you get to a point in the shoot where you have to let the cat out of the bag, but we went pretty far into prep and into production with a surprising amount of secrecy maintained."

Arquette is set to be joined in the film by returning co-star Neve Campbell who plays the series main protagonist, Sidney Prescott, as well as Courtney Cox who is reprising her role as reporter Gale Weathers. Following the news of her return, Campbell said in a statement that she was confident that Wes Craven's franchise is in good hands.

“After spending time speaking with Radio Silence [Productions], they have shown such love, respect and admiration for Wes Craven and all that he’s created in the Scream franchise," Campbell said. "I am beyond excited to step back into the role of Sidney Prescott and return to Woodsboro.”

Scream (2022) is set to release in theatres on January 14, 2022. To keep up with a range of the latest news and features from across the movie, make sure to check out our dedicated Scream IGN page.

You can stay at the 'Scream' house for only $5, if you're quick enough to book it

SFGate 11 October, 2021 - 12:23pm

It’s been over two decades since Ghostface terrorized the town of Woodsboro, but some scares (and scary movies) continue to live on. In honor of the 25th anniversary of the original “Scream” movie, as well as the upcoming 2022 release of the fifth installment in the series, you now have the chance to stay at the original “Scream” house, which is just north of San Francisco in Tomales, California.

The thrilling Airbnb stay promises to be a “Scream”-filled experience that will let you relive the iconic slasher film in person. Not only will you get to spend the night in the house where a party quickly turned deadly, but you’ll also get to see souvenirs of Ghostface’s visit there, including knife marks on the doors and the garage where one character met her untimely demise.

The evening will start with a virtual greeting from Sheriff Dewey Riley (actor David Arquette), and then you can sit back and watch a movie marathon of all four “Scream” movies on VHS (we are throwing it back to the ‘90s after all) while munching on Jiffy Pop, pizza and ice cream, if your nerves allow it. There’s a dedicated phone line to reach Ghostface for questions or requests... but that also means he has a way to call you. No doubt, you’ll have a memorable, but perhaps sleepless, night.

Just in time for Halloween, the house is available for three one-night stays for up to four people on October 27, 29, and 31 at the frightful steal of just $5/night. You're going to have to be quick to book it. Bookings open on October 12 at 10 AM PDT/1 PM EDT on, and it’s first-come, first-served, and not for the faint of heart. Airbnb will also make a one-time donation to Ween Dream, a non-profit that provides Halloween costumes to children in need across the country.

“Scream” fans who aren’t able to book the spooky stay can check out the Secrets of SCREAM online experience, where original screenwriter Kevin Williamson will reveal some behind-the-scenes stories and surprises behind the franchise. Bookings for this experience also open on October 12 at 10 AM PDT/1 PM EST, with proceeds going to support The Trevor Project.
