Not many characters survived the bloodshed of SCREAM 4, but Deputy Judy Hicks (played by Marley Shelton) managed to come out okay and ready for future SCREAM movies. For Shelton, playing the quirky officer of the law who may or may not have involvement in the recent killings in the small town of Woodsboro was a career highlight. The film, directed by Wes Craven who helmed the previous three movies, just hit Blu-ray and DVD and the actress spoke with ASSIGNMENT X in this exclusive interview about her role in the film and wanting to return for more.

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 »

CD Review: SCREAM: THE DELUXE EDITION soundtrack (2,000 limited edition)

Sure horror scores before 1996 raised their voice more than occasionally. But it took Marco Beltrami to send the genre into a true fugue state with the cacophony of SCREAM’s outrageous symphonic kills, creating a whole new impactful sound for slashers and demons alike, not to mention setting the thematic template for three more franchise scores to come. Music fans with subtler tastes might chide SCREAM for being over the top. Yet that was exactly the right tone for writer Kevin Smith’s satiric takedown of the genre. Though he himself might not have been into a horror geek like SCREAM’s […]Read On »

Sidney has outlasted and outwitted the elusive Ghost Face killer (and killers) in the previous three movies and in this fourth installment she returns to her hometown of Woodsboro for a […]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 »

Written by newcomer Kevin Williamson and directed by genre vet Wes Craven, they created a scary horror film once again  – it also poked fun at its conventions. It […]Read On »

They are reflections of us when we first got there. It brings an electricity like we had on the first film and with this and now a […]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.

While promoting her new film SCRE4M, actress Neve Campbell explains that it was like old times doing this horror film reboot – particularly looking back on the three films they did before. “I had fun watching the films again before we started this to get a sense of it,” says Campbell. “They held up well.” And as many horror films throughout the 2000s went through the darker, torture fun phase, Campbell relished the fun she had working on this kind of horror film. “We were having fun during filming,” says Campbell. “You’re not feeling it’s a dark experience. There’s humor […]Read On »
