Scream, Season 1, Episodes 8 to 10
Aired Tuesdays at 10pm (Et) on MTV
There’s something we’ve got to talk about before we can talk about the final three episodes of Scream, and that’s about the sad passing of Wes Craven on Sunday, August 30th. There’s a thousand things to say about Wes Craven and what he did for the horror genre, especially in the Scream franchise, and there are plenty of great pieces on the man all across the internet, so I won’t repeat was has already been articulated. We wouldn’t have this show without Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson’s Scream franchise, which is one of the only horror franchises without a single bad installment. Even the weakest entry (Scream 3) is still pretty good. Horror, at one level, functions as an interplay between what »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the Scream season one finale.] MTV's version of Scream's Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox) is less concerned with reporting the news of all the murders rocking the town, and more interested in creating it. During Tuesday's season one finale of the MTV series based on Wes Craven's horror franchise, true crime podcaster Piper Shaw (Amelia Rose Blaire) was unmasked as the killer targeting Emma (Willa Fitzgerald) and the town of Lakewood. Her motive? She was the secret daughter of the infamous Brandon James and Emma's mother Maggie/Daisy (Tracy Middendorf) — and she wanted revenge

The creators of MTV’s horror series “Scream” knew they had to have a killer twist for the finale of the 10-episode first season, but they didn’t know what it would be right away. On Tuesday season finale, true-crime podcaster Piper Shay (Amelia Rose Blaire) was unmasked as the serial murderer who has been tormenting Emma (Willa Fitzgerald), culminating in a final showdown on the dock where Brandon James was killed years before. “When we were talking about who the killer would be, it was just this great sort of synchronicity to have the same person who was telling the story be. »

Audrey’s unexpected correspondence with podcaster-turned-murderer Piper? The fact that Kieran had nothing to do with the Lakewood killing spree?

Warning: The following Q&A contains spoilers from Scream‘s Season 1 finale. Read at your own risk.
There are a lot of lessons to be learned from Scream‘s first season: Don’t go swimming alone at night. (Rip Nina!) Don’t bring Mike & Ikes to a movie night with your ex-boyfriend. (Rip Will!) Make sure there aren’t any cameras around when you have sex for the first time. (Rip Emma’s dignity!)
But the most important takeaway? Don’t. Trust. The podcaster.
That’s right: After nine weeks of grisly Lakewood murders and countless red herrings, murder-mystery junkie »

Long-gestating Xbox One exclusive, Quantum Break, finally has a release date. Mark April 5th in your calendar everyone – that’s when you’ll finally get the chance to pick up and play Quantum Break in all of its glory.
Glory is an appropriate word to use, too, as Remedy’s Xbox One debut looks absolutely stunning in terms of visuals, and they’re being backed up by an innovative new time-based combat system that lets the player freeze and manipulate time in several different ways.
In addition to all of that, Remedy have come out with a massive list of Hollywood clout that’ll be lending their talents to both the game and its counterpart live-action series, which will be fused together to form an experience that is “greater than the sum of its parts.”

It would be presumptuous of me to think that I have influence on the course of any programme, much less one like Scream: The TV Series. That strangest of all hybrids. An ironic genre mash-up, which itself was a deconstruction and revitalisation of the tired slasher movie. However it is nice to see that someone, somewhere recognised the need for Scream: The TV Series to pull its finger out.
After the lacklustre effort of last week, there exists in episode four reasons to be cheerful. Aside from a weak sub plot involving Connor and Amadeus. Which finds these two model slash jock straps whispering in corners like pre-school toddlers trying to hoard all the toys. Things are finally getting interesting. With Karna, Taylor-Klaus and Fitzgerald taking centre stage once more, there is cause for concern. By which I mean »

Given the recent and pronounced changes to Marvel’s line-up, there is clearly a marked desire to reach a more modern and diverse audience. From the development of complex and diverse lead characters to the promotion of female superheroes, Marvel is dragging its brand into the modern-day and winning an army of new fans in the process.
One of the most exciting aspects is that it has brought new characters and narratives to the forefront of the comic book and cinematic world. Just as Thor introduced extra-terrestrial elements to the Marvel brand, so too we can expect the upcoming Doctor Strange film to leave its own unique mark on the superhero genre. This is something that we cannot wait for, and we’re sure that other fans feel exactly the same!
Due for release in the autumn of 2016, the new Doctor Strange film is expected to introduce magic and sorcery »

Scream, Season 1, Episodes 1-3
Airs Tuesdays at 10pm (Et) on MTV
If one glances around at the Movie-to-tv adaptation landscape, things are looking surprisingly good. Hannibal is the best show on television right now, Fargo was one of the best surprises of last year and looks like it will continue as such in its second season this fall, and now MTV is adding one more Movie-to-tv adaptation to its roster; shout out to MTV’s other Movie-to-tv breadwinner Teen Wolf, a show that is totally unashamed of how ridiculous and heightened it is and succeeds because of it. MTV’s Scream is so far surprisingly not terrible in the same way that Albert Pujols is playing surprisingly not terrible baseball right now–it’s a comfort, but you still expect more.
This new series takes the iconic Scream franchise and fits it to television, »

"Caught" Largely a four-hander featuring a high school track star, the older businessman with whom she’s having an affair, the man’s wife, and the wife’s sister, “Caught” unfolds in a single suburban house and breaks out all the machinations to keep them there. If you’ve seen “Wait Until Dark” or “Panic Room,” you know the hiding spots, the camera angles, the shifts in power dynamics over a single evening. But director Maggie Kiley floods every room with light, bumps the bright production design up to overt, and sets a satirical tone that sets the thriller apart. Her teenage protagonist Allie (Stefanie Scott) sits at the film’s moral and thematic center, as a flawed, failing student wrapped up in a seemingly perfect package. It’s the ideal picture for bubbly housewife Sabrina (Anna Camp) to covet, and also attempt to destroy by kidnapping Allie with her »
- Charlie Schmidlin
A darkly comedic spin on a familiar tale, Maggie Kiley’s Caught is an energetic and clever cat-and-mouse thriller revolving around the determination of one woman to preserve the sanctity of her marriage after she finds out she’s been cheated on. Written by Marcy Holland, Caught features a powerful and hilarious performance from True Blood’s Anna Camp and also co-stars Stefanie Scott (Insidious Chapter 3), Amelia Rose Blaire ( True Blood) and Sam Page (Mad Men) as the trio who must endure her madness after things go horribly awry.
Caught’s initial set-up is pretty straightforward; Sabrina (Camp) is a tightly-wound housewife who strives for perfection but discovers that her husband Justin (Page) is sleeping with a younger woman named Allie (Scott), forcing her to take drastic measures. Rather than confront her spouse, Sabrina decides to teach his lover a lesson by kidnapping Allie with the assistance of her sister »

Set to premiere tonight at the 2015 Los Angeles Film Festival, Caught is a darkly comedic thriller centered around a desperate housewife who discovers that her husband is having an affair and as a mean-spirited prank, she kidnaps his unsuspecting mistress. But things begin to spin wildly out of control once her perfect plan starts to fall apart.
Written by Marcy Holland and directed by Maggie Kiley, Caught stars Anna Camp (True Blood), Stefanie Scott (Insidious: Chapter 3), Amelia Rose Blaire (True Blood), and Sam Page (Mad Men). Daily Dead recently had the opportunity to speak with Kiley as well as with producer Jennifer Westin and co-executive producer Hannah Pillemer about their experiences collaborating together on the film, how important getting the tone right was for Kiley, their thoughts on representing female genre filmmakers at the Laff and much more.

Press Release -- "An Office Space meets Shaun of the Dead action-packed horror comedy, Bloodsucking Bastards stars Fran Kranz as Evan Sanders, a low-level, dutiful employee stuck in a boring job at a soul-killing every corporation. Evan’s the kind of guy who does all the work and gets none of the credit, but at least he gets to spend his days with his beautiful co-worker/girlfriend Amanda (Emma Fitzpatrick) and his slacker best friend Tim (Joey Kern).
Unfortunately, it all falls apart in one fell swoop when Amanda breaks up with him and Evan’s boss Ted (Joel Murray) hands »
