Snakes On A Plane: revisiting the film, 10 years on

Sarah Dobbs Sep 14, 2016

It's 10 years since Samuel L Jackson had enough of those muddyfunsting snakes on that Monday to Friday plane....

Can you remember where you were when you first heard the title Snakes On A Plane? Try and put yourself back in that mindset for a moment. It’s tough, sitting here in 2016, to remember how outrageous it seemed. After all, we live in a world where a movie called Sharknado not only exists, but has three sequels, the most recent of which even has a Star Wars joke for a subtitle (The 4th Awakens). Fan fantasy concepts like 'Batman vs Superman' have been turned into $250 million movies. I mean, there’s even a Grumpy Cat film. Nowadays, if something goes viral online, there’s a very good chance Hollywood will shell out for the movie rights.

But back in 2006, an idea like Snakes On A Plane was sort of exciting; firstly,

'Scream': 15 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About the Slasher Franchise

It's been five years since the release of "Scream 4" (on April 15, 2011), but like the Ghostface killer, the franchise refuses to die.

Since the first film's release nearly 20 years ago (on December 20, 1996), there have been four movies that have grossed $604 million worldwide, as well as a spinoff series on MTV whose second season begins May 31. "Scream" not only became the most lucrative slasher-film series ever, but it also revitalized the teen horror genre. Still, as inescapable and relentless as the "Scream" franchise has been, there are still a lot of secrets behind that mask. Here are 15 terrifying tidbits of trivia.

1. "Scream" was originally a screenplay by Kevin Williamson called "Scary Movie," inspired in part by the real-life killings of five college students in Gainesville, Florida in 1990. But Dimension studio chief Bob Weinstein didn't think the title reflected Williamson's blend of horror and comedy.

2. Inspired by the recent Michael Jackson hit,

New Mask In Scream TV Series Relates To Story; Roger Jackson Won’t Voice Ghostface

MTV’s small-screen reboot of Scream unleashed the first pieces of its marketing campaign earlier this week. A handful of teaser trailers signalled that we’re no longer in the fresh terrain of Wes Craven’s 1996 original movie. No, now we’re in a world that’s all-too-familiar with the tropes of horror, to the point where it’s becoming a trope in itself. Self-self-reflexivity? I’m sure that’s not where Kevin Williamson imagined his script would lead some twenty years down the line. Nevertheless, Scream is heading back to us this summer, and along with that fresh youthful cast all waiting to get sliced and diced, there’s another few changes in store.

Namely, the striking look of the series’ killer, Ghostface. The iconic mask worn by every killer in all four movies has been cast aside by MTV in favor of what network VP Mina Lefevre has

Scream Reboot Gets Series Order from MTV

  • DailyDead
“Do you like scary movies?” If this line from Wes Craven’s Scream still sends a shiver down your spine, then perhaps you should prepare to be creeped out by more cryptic phone calls, as MTV has officially put in a series order for their Scream reboot.

MTV made the announcement via Twitter, using blood-splattered emojis to get the message across, in addition to a listed phone number. If you call the number, a man imitating Roger L. Jackson’s chilling vocal cords says, “Do you like scary TV? Scream is coming to MTV October 2015.”

The first season of the show will consist of 10 episodes and it is believed that the franchise’s iconic Ghostface outfit will not be worn by any killers early on, based on this statement made by R.J. Torbert of Fun World (the official rights-holder and manufacturer of the Ghostface costume) in an interview with Ghostface.
