Scream (TV Show)

So MTV is creating a TV show based off the movie series. The description in the TV guide says, "A high school student's murder stirs memories of a similar slaying that took place 20 years earlier.

Trailer:

Re: Scream (TV Show)

I don't need the original characters to watch a continuation of the series, but I would like this to be thematically similar to the first four films. The fourth one deviated a little bit, but it was still Scream... maybe even more so than the third one. Gimme Ghostface, a knife, Roger Jackson's voice, the meta horror genre analysis, and a few quirky characters and you just may have the making of a hit!

I'll tune in for a few episodes, but sometimes without extreme gore and use of the F-bomb, it could be deterring. Also, playing too long of a "whodunit" with obviously very many twists and misleads might get tiresome.

Didn't watch the trailer yet, by the way (at work). I'll probably just go into it open-minded. I do remember seeing a quick commercial with a camera panning of just a bunch of dead bodies at a house, though I don't think it was an actual episode clip and more of a promo. Kept me interested enough.

Re: Scream (TV Show)

They showed an 8 minute preview in the middle of there Screamathon yesterday.

Yeah...no.

The killer looks nothing like Ghostface. Closer to Michael Myers than anything.

In that case, they might not have the rights to it. I believe Dimension owns the rights to use the Ghostface mask for films, or whatever production company it was that bought them back in the mid-90s.

Too bad it's not the original writers and such. Hopefully Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven have some kind of input for this.

Re: Scream (TV Show)

Yeah I think it was Dimension.

I don't know, I guess it was only one scene but I just didn't get the Scream vibe.

Here is what they showed yesterday:

Yea you are right it doesn't really look like the original but but it does remind me of it in the video that you posted. I'm guessing like blzer said they can't use the real mask design because Dimension holds the rights to it. And they could still be making movies in the franchise.

Re: Scream (TV Show)

I saw this last night during Scream 4. I am interested. I enjoyed the Scream movies quite a bit so I'll check it out.

I may check it out but there is way too much on Tuesday nights. So I will probably DVR it and then watch it Wednesday. But I did enjoy the first 3 didn't really like 4.

Also I just quickly googled scream 5 because I thought there was 5 not 4. And I just saw an article said that the film franchise is dead. So I don't know why they don't have the real ghostface mask.
