EVERYBODY IS STILL A SUSPECT: A LOOK BACK AT SCREAM
With the news of Scream 5 (or is it 5cream?) officially in the works, it’s the perfect time to go back and pay tribute to the entire franchise from master horror director Wes Craven. When you look at horror franchises, it’s rare to find one where every entry works. Directors, screenwriters, and actors come and go with lame copycat entries or even reboots attempting to recapture the magic of the original film. Scream bucks all of that as we followed a core group of beloved characters through four films as they’re haunted by Ghostface, family trauma, and an eerie voice that follows them from Woodsboro to Windsor College to Hollywood, and finally, back home again.
The horror genre was dying out in 1996, and Scream would forever change the serial killer sub-genre thanks to Craven’s direction and Kevin Williamson’s genius screenplay. My relationship and love of Scream goes back to first film’s theatrical release in December 1996. I should preface that my parent’s wouldn’t allow me to see it in theaters. More on that to come in the final video. Check back each day as I’ll be breaking down each film on my YouTube channel.
