“Do you like scary movies?” To celebrate Halloween this year, we decided to revisit Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson’s Scream series, the inventive slasher franchise that brought the horror genre back from the dead in the late ’90s. We all had strong memories of seeing most of these movies the first time around but we were eager to see how they hold up today. Discussion points include the trademark ambitious opening sequences, the trend of casting of TV stars, the so-called “rules” of horror movies and Ghostface as an iconic horror movie villain. What is the most underrated element of the Ghostface costume? How did Dewey and Gale become such beloved characters in this series? Does blood always come from a vein? Which member of the Film Junk crew would have no hesitation about killing in self-defense? Check your conscience at the door and download this month’s premium podcast below.
