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 »

There are only a handful of horror movie heroine/survivors that have made it past a couple of movies with their wits and body parts intact. The short list includes Jamie Lee Curtis who starred as Laurie Strode in four of the HALLOWEEN films, Sigourney Weaver as Ripley in four ALIEN films and now tying their record is Neve Campbell returning for SCREAM 4 (aka SCRE4M) as heroine Sidney Prescott. 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 »

Rating: R Stars: David Arquette, Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, Patrick Dempsey, Scott Foley, Lance Henriksen, Matt Keeslar, Jenny McCarthy, Emily Mortimer, Parker Posey, Deon Richmond, Patrick Warburton Writer: Ehren Kruger Director: Wes Craven Distributor: Lionsgate Suggested Retail Price: $19.99 After two really good films, the SCREAM franchise took a huge nosedive with 2000’s virtually unwatchable SCREAM 3. A very lazy film (when you compare it to the ambitions screenwriter Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven were going for in SCREAM 2), SCREAM 3 is a hodge podge of unfunny comedy, crazy back story and very few actual scares. Williamson is nowhere […]Read On »

During the “Behind the Music with CW3PR: Composing for Sci-Fi Horror and Fantasy” panel during Wondercon 2011 in San Francisco, composer Marco Beltrami was asked about returning to the horror franchise SCRE4M (aka SCREAM 4) and how it was different. “It was great working again with [director] Wes [Craven], he is a lot of fun,” Beltrami says. “It is really a  continuation of the previous SCREAM movies, but the fun thing about this one is since there was another killer, it gave me a chance to play around with the general theme.” Beltrami also says he played around with Sidney’s […]Read On »

Rating: R Stars: David Arquette, Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jamie Kennedy, Laurie Metcalf, Jerry O’Connell, Jada Pinkett, Live Schreiber Writer: Kevin Williamson Director: Wes Craven Distributor: Lionsgate Suggested Retail Price: $19.99 It was certainly going to take a lot to deliver a satisfying follow-up to the surprise hit SCREAM, but by bringing back most of the surviving cast, writer Kevin Williamson and director Wes Craven, SCREAM 2 proved to be a halfway decent horror sequel. Like the original SCREAM, 1997’s SCREAM 2 follows heroine Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) who is now at college trying to reclaim her […]Read On »
