Scream 4 In The Works

This is pretty exciting news, probably in particular to me because most horror movies scare the living daylights out of  me. Let me clarify, I won’t watch horror flicks. If I even see a trailer for a new scary flick, my heart races and my breathing goes on hold. Sad, but true.

But Scream, those are funny and often clever enough to make the experience palatable to me. So this is the one time I will herald a return to a horror series.

Check out the interview excerpt with Wes Craven. 

What’s the status with Scream 4 at the moment? Are we going to see you direct it?
“Bob Weinstein (The Weinstein Company co-chairman) has talked to me, he’s interested in me directing it. I had a brief conversation with Kevin [Williamson], I know that Kevin is writing. What I’ve said to Bob is I’m not closed to it, I’m not open to it, I’ll be perfectly happy to read a script and tell him what I think. That’s where it’s at and I’m not expecting a script until August. I don’t know what the premise is or anything.”

Do you know what form it’s taking? The word ‘reboot’ has been used. 
“I don’t think it’s a reboot and Kevin, when he talked to me, said, ‘Remember, it’s not justScream 4, it’s Scream 5 and 6.’ So I guess he has a trilogy in mind.”

It’s looking like the Arquettes are coming back. Do you know if Neve Campbell will be returning? 
“I’ve been told, and I don’t think they’ll mind if I say this, the deals on David Arquette and Courteney are virtually set. I believe everybody else will be new.”

I Can’t Watch This! Eek!

I have a childhood fear about the Halloween movies, I can’t watch the trailers, can’t watch the films, nothing. Can’t even bear the music. If I’m watching TV and a trailer comes on, I have to switch it or mute it right away. Yes, it’s bad.

Anyway, Rob Zombie “re-imagined” the Halloween film a few years ago – well now there’s part 2 on it’s way. I tried to watch the trailer, but I had to stop it. My heart starts beating fast, I stop breathing, and my hair goes gray instantly. OK, so not really the last part. 

Watch this trailer and tell me if it scares you too. There’s safety in numbers, unless two of us decide to go fuck in the woods, but that’s a whole ‘notha story.
