It’s rare for a filmmaker to helm all four installments in a movie franchise, but like Steven Spielberg did with the INDIANA JONES franchise, Wes Craven has matched that record with SCREAM. SCREAM 4, the latest chapter, hits DVD and Blu-ray this week as it reunites the surviving cast members from the previous three movies – Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette as they confronts the nefarious Ghost Face killer one more time as he (or she or more) terrorizes the quaint small town of Woodsboro. ASSIGNMENT X recently spoke with Wes Craven in this exclusive interview about the […]Read On »

Most filmmakers are lucky to have one major franchise to their name in their career, but Wes Craven has managed to have two with A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET and the SCREAM movies to his name. Throw in THE HILLS HAVE EYES and LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT (which have both been remade from his seminal 1970s films) and the director has proven to be one of horror’s continual masters and a force to be reckoned with.   With SCRE4M (aka SCREAM 4), Craven returns for the fourth go-around to the venerable horror franchise that started in 1996 and has […]Read On »

While speaking to the press about the new SCRE4M film, Courteney Cox talks about reuniting with director Wes Craven who helmed the previous three films in the franchise. “He’s an amazing filmmaker,” says Cox. “He’s so current on everything. I don’t even know what MySpace is. He’s watching things and learning. He’s constantly bettering his mind and the way he directs Ghost Face and makes him turn his head. It’s eerie. Wes is like a choreographer when it comes to Ghost Face. He’s a great director.” CLICK HERE to hear what WES CRAVEN has to say about SCRE4M CLICK HERE […]Read On »

While speaking to the press today, SCRE4M director Wes Craven dispelled rumors that he was displeased with the heavy rewrites supposedly done to the Kevin Williamson script by Ehren Kruger (who penned SCREAM 3). “I’m very pleased with the movie and how the script turned out,” says Craven. “It was a result of Kevin’s master script and Ehren did a decent amount of work on specific scenes. I wrote sections of the film myself, but it’s very much Kevin’s concept and over-arching framework of the film.” SCRE4M opens April 15, 2011 CLICK HERE to hear about COURTENEY COX talking about […]Read On »

TELL ME A STORY, created and executive-produced by Kevin Williamson, is now in its second season on CBS All-Access, with new episodes dropping every Thursday night (Season 1 is available to stream in its entirety on the service). The series takes familiar fairytales – this year, “Beauty and the Beast,” “Sleeping Beauty,” and “Cinderella – and intertwines them into real-world thrillers. Williamson’s authorial pedigree is enormous. He created and wrote the bigscreen SCREAM franchise. For television, Williamson created DAWSON’S CREEK and THE FOLLOWING, and adapted THE VAMPIRE DIARIES franchise (which has spawned two spinoffs, THE ORIGINALS and the currently on-air […]Read On »

Stars: Michael Berryman, Tamara Stafford, John Bloom, John Laughlin, Janus Blythe Writer: Wes Craven Director: Wes Craven Distributor: Arrow Video Suggested Retail Price: $34.99 Filmed before Wes Craven’s seminal 1984 classic A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET and released in the U.S. a year later, THE HILLS HAVE EYES PART 2 is an obvious cash grab by all involved serving as a follow-up to Craven’s own 1977 cult hit. While some of the inventiveness Craven displayed in ELM STREET is missing here, there is some considerable charm to THE HILLS HAVE EYES PART 2 in both its coherent and incoherent attempts […]Read On »

CD Reviews: THE HILLS HAVE EYES and KNIGHT RIDER soundtracks

Don Peake is one of the musicians who’ve jumped on board of Perseverance’s new “composer distribution series,” which allows artists to use the label as a proxy for titles they’ve always wanted to release. Among the titles to spring from the former Everly Brothers guitarist are FRANKIE AND JOHNNY ARE MARRIED and two volumes of KNIGHT RIDER. But horror cultists will most certainly get their primitive fill for Peake’s run through the cannibal-infested desert of Wes Craven during the director’s way grittier days, a grindhouse talent that had memorable brute force in 1977s THE HILLS HAVE EYES. This since way […]Read On »

Most people know that THE AMITYVILLE HORROR is reportedly based on real events. Far fewer knew that the SILENT HILL films also had roots in history.

Larry Landsman, who executive-produced both two-hour specials, is on the phone to talk about the new edition. ASSIGNMENT X: […]Read On »

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer:  Shalisha Francis Director: Ron Underwood Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: March 18, 2013 Let’s be real. CASTLE is never going get it right regarding police procedure. The writers routinely screw up the real world facts in favor of a cool connection, and most of the time we don’t really mind because we know going in this is not about accuracy, it’s about fun. In “Scared to Death,” we get plenty of the amusement factor – which is why this didn’t get a lower […]Read On »
