No matter what you may think of the Scream series of films, the Ghost Face mask became an iconic image, a frozen screech contorted into a form not unlike the classic painting “The Scream” by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch. The image looked back at us from four movies, and hundreds of Halloween racks for the last 20 years, so when a TV version of Scream was announced for MTV we all wondered if Ghost Face would make the transfer intact, if he made the transfer at all. Now, a new image from the show reveals that Ghost Face has gotten a facelift, something evocative of the original, but with a new spin. (Fashion is not my forte.) (more…)
The trailer for WES CRAVEN´S SCREAM 4 premiered at the 2010 Scream Awards this past Sat. night. Since then only butt, bootleg versions of it made there way across the net. But now we have that very trailer in all it’s official glory. It’s less than sixty seconds, but there’s so much packed into that sixty seconds, it feels like a lot more. It promises sufficient scares to prove that Ghost Face (whoever he, she or they is/are these days) has still got it.
Scream 4 is directed by Wes Craven and stars stars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Hayden Panettiere, Britt Robertson, Emma Roberts, Rory Culkin, Nico Tortorella, Anthony Anderson, Mary McDonnell, Aimee Teegarden, and Marielle Jaffe.
“Scream 4: The Dead Horse ” is set to hit theaters on April 15, 2011.

As director Wes Craven says promisingly, “The first [Scream] was very much observing where horror had been for the last 10 to 20 years. And this is very much looking at where horror has been for the last 10 years. There’s always somebody trying to figure out what the rules are to keep from getting killed.”
