Scream 4: What To Expect
15 years ago, screenwriter Kevin Williamson (“Dawson’s Creek”, “The Vampire Diaries”) teamed up with master of horror films Wes Craven to give us a new kind of horror movie. We all watched in horror as Drew Barrymore simply answered the phone only to end up fighting for her life, because she answered the question of “Who was the original killer in the “Friday the 13th” (for your reference it was Mrs. Voorhees) wrong. “Scream” went on to span 2 sequels and was the basis of the “Scary Movie” franchise.
“Scream 4” (out April 15th) is not a re-boot of the franchise, but more a “what happens next?”. Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) returns to Woodsboro for the 15th anniversary of the original murders, only to end up re-living her past with a new set of rules. This new killer is video tapping and streaming the murders online; virgins (who are normally “safe”) are up for grabs this time around.
Leading the line of the new victims are Emma Roberts (“Nancy Drew”), Hayden Panettiere (“Heros”) , Lucy Hale (“Pretty Little Liars”), Shenae Grimes (“90210”), Erik Knudsen, and Rory Culkin. The big names making appearances are Kristen Bell (“Veronica Mars”) and Anna Paquin (“True Blood”).
Returning from the original cast along with Neve Campbell are Courtney Cox (Gale Weathers) and David Arquette (Dewey Riley).
So whether you’re a fan of the original, a lover of horror movies in general, or are just getting introduced to the “Scream” franchise, tell us:
