"I really didn't know whether ...

The Best Characters In Scream, Ranked

Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett's "Scream" (2022) explores many themes -- elevated horror, "requels," the entitlement that underscores modern fandoms -- and it does so through its characters. This is notable, because it wasn't a given. The third film in Wes Craven's seminal slasher franchise all but abandoned its protagonists for rapid-fire plot points and Creed synchs. Other recent entries in blockbuster franchises that originated in the '80s and '90s rolled out old dramatis persones as...

Easter Eggs You May Have Missed In Scream

As we've come to know over the years, one of the best parts of the "Scream" franchise is the meta element. The focus on the "rules" of horror movies and the commentary on the genre at large is what makes the franchise so lovable, and to see ourselves as fans reflected back at us in such an iconic and memorable way is what keeps us coming back. So, naturally, they decided to up the meta-ante in 2022's "Scream," which arrived in theaters this weekend.And because they decided to up the meta-ante th...

Scream Scares Up A Bloody Good $3.5 Million In Thursday Box Office Previews

After a month of having no competition at all for "Spider-Man: No Way Home" at the box office, a challenger has emerged, and it's horror to the rescue. The new "Scream" (which is weirdly not titled "Scream 5") had one heck of an opening night at the box office, especially considering the current Omicron surge, which paves the way for a big opening weekend. And movie theaters are certainly going to be more than happy to take that blood-soaked money.Per The Hollywood Reporter, "Scream," directed b...

Neve Campbell Calmly Discusses That Time She Was Attacked By A Bear On Set

Neve Campbell's Sidney Prescott is first and foremost a survivor. After living through four movies full of murder sprees, the scream queen at the center of the "Scream" franchise knows her way out of a bad situation. Does she tend to walk away pretty roughed up and with a stab wound or two? Perhaps. But that's just the cost of existing in a horror movie. Despite the recurring threats to her life, Sidney time and time again proves herself to be an absolute badass. And it clearly takes one to know...

Is There A Scream Credits Scene? A Spoiler-Free Guide

The first must-see horror event of 2022 is nearly upon us, as "Scream," the long-awaited fifth entry in the iconic horror franchise soon hits theaters. While it might be a bit confusing/annoying that the movie isn't simply titled "Scream 5" since it is very much a continuation of the franchise with much of the original cast returning, this remains something a great many lovers of genre cinema have been waiting a long time for. But the question lingers, must those fans also wait through the credi...

Scream Review: A Very Funny, Very Bloody Sequel

Someone has taken their love of scary movies one step too far ... again. The fifth entry in any horror series is bound to be questionable; what more is there to say? But you can't keep a good franchise down, and "Scream" has returned to spill some more blood. A lot more blood, in fact. "Scream," the fifth film in the series, but one that adopts the trend of jettisoning a number altogether and confusingly using the original film's title, is set 25 years after the events of the first flick, and on...

The Ending Of The Original Scream Still Kicks Ass Decades Later

When Wes Craven's "Scream" dropped in December of 1996, there occurred a seismic shift in the horror genre. In a field of stale slasher franchises — the previous year saw the sixth entry in the "Halloween" film series and the fourth trip back to Texas chain saws — Kevin Williamson's sharp, cynical script breathed fresh life into a subgenre that had come a long way since Michael Myers broke out of Haddonfield Hospital in 1978. The film spawned a handful of sequels, and its latest, the terribly-ti...

The Surprising Connection Between Scream And The Powerpuff Girls

The city of Townsville is home to a lot of things: gangs of green skinned hoodlums, a mob of amoebas, a hillbilly monster, a sexually-charged immortal cross-dressing demon, and more kaiju monsters than the Monarch laboratories of "Godzilla: King of the Monster" would know what to do with. But the aforementioned locale is also home to everyone's favorite pint-sized super sisters, "The Powerpuff Girls."

Scream TV Spot Has Ghostface Using A Flamethrower

Scream 2022 Director Teases Possible Sequels With New Generation

It's been 25 years since Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) went toe-to-toe with the hacking 'n slashing Ghostface killer (not to be confused with the flow-riffic rap artist) in the fictional sunny California town of Woodsboro in Wes Craven's "Scream." Now, the "Scream" film series has a new entry on the way in 2022, and co-director Tyler Gillett says there's more where that came from.

Look, I'm already sold on the new "Scream." I love the original movie. I'm thrilled to see the three original leads back. And I'm a big fan of the work of filmmakers Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett. However, I have to admit that I've been left cold with the marketing so far. I think there's a reason for that: the folks involved with the pic want to play things close to the vest to avoid massive spoilers leaking.

Wes Craven's horror hit "Scream" just turned 25, and we're still not ready to let this franchise go. The solution?
