While many of us are guilty of shrieking in our seats during scary movies, horror film actresses have screaming down to a science, perfecting everything from the pitch to the look of terror in their eyes. With Halloween here and tons of new horror flicks out, we're taking a look at actresses who have managed to make our hair stand on end with their bloodcurdling screams. From Janet Leigh's iconic Psycho moment to Drew Barrymore's Scream opener, check out the ladies who made their mark - and made themselves heard! »
Just in time for Halloween, MTV has ordered a TV show based on the Scream horror franchise - though the Ghostface killer who so memorably terrorised the victims of Wes Craven's film series will notably be absent.
It seems that horror cinema remains a rich vein for television producers to tap. On top of the Scream news, it was reported back in August that NBC is working on its own version of Satanic thriller The Devil's Advocate.
But translating big-screens scares for television can be a tricky process and only a few movie chillers have survived the move in one piece.
Friday the 13th: The Series (1987-1990)
This spooky show bore little resemblance to the familiar series of slasher films, with producer Frank Mancuso, Jr. taking the name and little else. Like Scream's Ghostface, the most memorable aspect of the Friday the 13th pictures - hulking hockey-mask-sporting »
Netflix Streaming can be overwhelming — so many options, yet so hard to actually find — and we here at Vulture have tried to make it easier for you with our weekly and monthly streaming video roundups. Now that Halloween is nigh, it seemed appropriate to weed through every single horror movie currently available to stream on Netflix and point out the good ones, the bad ones, the disturbing ones, and the just plain silly ones. Read on:the GOODEveryone’s going to have differing opinions on what movies are great, but I think we can all agree that the ones below are more likely to fall in the plus column than the minus. Scream and Scream 2: For many people under 30, these jokey yet scary Wes Craven deconstructions of the slasher film genre were the first real horror movies that they were allowed to see. The films still hold up, »

Having been in development for some time now, MTV has officially announced that it has given a ten-episode series order to a smalls creen adaptation of the 90s slasher Scream, with the show set to get underway in October.
At this point in time, it’s unclear how closely the series will stick to the source material, with rumours suggesting that the iconic killer Ghostface will be absent from the show, and producer Harvey Weinstein hinting at a supernatural element which of course was not present in any of the movies.
Jill Blotevogel is serving as showrunner on Scream, while the cast includes Bex Taylor-Klaus, Audrey Jensen, Willa Fitzgerald, John Karna, Connor Weil, Amadeus Serafini, Carlson Young, Tracy Middendorf and Joel Gretsch. Harvey and Bob Weinstein will produce alongside Wes Craven, although Scream creator Kevin Williamson has no involvement with the show.

There once was a time (and it was not so very long ago) when TV shows were adapted into films and not the other way around. But as the imagination of contemporary Hollywood remains in strictly “pastiche” mode, it should come as no surprise that quite a number of beloved films from the 1980s and 90s are getting their own small-screen adaptations and spinoffs. Joining the TV crowd is Wes Craven’s 1996 slasher comedy Scream, which is now getting another day in the dark with a full series order from MTV.
MTV’s Scream series will follow a group of high-school stereotypes as they survive (or don’t) a serial killer in their midst. Everyone from the “shy popular girl” (Willa Fitzgerald) to the artsy loner (John Karna) will be on hand to play their requisite parts. It does not seem to be clear whether this show will simply take place in Woodboro, »

The Scream TV spinoff has been picked up by MTV for a ten-episode first season.
The network confirmed today (October 29) that the series will premiere in October 2015.
Scream spawned movie sequels in 1997, 2000 and 2011.
It was recently confirmed that the film's famous masked Ghostface killer would not initially feature in the spin-off series.
"However, while Ghostface is owned by Fun World, the Scream motion picture franchise is owned by The Weinstein Company, and it is their option to film a movie or TV show without Ghostface.
"Who knows what will happen in the future regarding the series and Ghostface? Never say never."

Of course as it is Craven, a screen adaptation of the material is already in the works - in this case a TV series which Cheyenne Enterprises are developing.
Craven and "30 Days of Night" creator Steve Niles co-wrote the comic which basically sounds like a variation on the British series "Being Human" in that it's a coming of age tale about three friends - a vampire, a werewolf and a zombie - who end up on the run together.
The first three issues of the comic have been released together as a special Halloween digital exclusive for Amazon’s Kindle.

MTV’s Scream adaptation must have had a decent pilot, a full season has just been ordered...
Do you like scary movies? More importantly, do you like televisual serials based on previously successful scary movies? We hope so, because MTV have just ordered a full series of their small screen adaptation of Scream.
Via a cryptic tweet and a phone line, MTV announced that the series will premiere next October, nice and close to Halloween 2015. We’ve also learnt that the series will be ten hour-long episodes long and that Wes Craven will be involved in a producer capacity, as are Harvey and Bob Weinstein. Kevin Williamson however, who scripted the original film, will not be involved.
Jamie Travis of Faking It directed the successful pilot episode, with Revenge’s Jay Beattie and Dan Dworking writing the script. On executive producer and showrunner duties was Harper’s Island’s Jill Blotevogel. »
With Halloween just around the corner, MTV revealed today that the network has issued a series order for their Scream TV show. The announcement came through MTV's official Twitter page, which comes with a phone number (310-461-4299) that allows fans to hear a pre-recorded message revealing the show will debut in October 2015. Take a look at the tweet, and check out the full message below, which is delivered by the iconic creepy Scream voice when you call the number.
The Scream TV show is officially a go. THR reports that MTV has given a series order to the 10-episode reboot, which is set to debut on the network in October 2015. The show is, of course, based on Wes Craven’s incredibly influential 1996 horror film, which revolved around a serial killer with a heavy knowledge of horror tropes who terrorized high school students in a sleepy town. It’s currently unclear which aspects of the original film franchise will be carried over into the TV show, but we recently learned that Ghostface will not be making an appearance—at least not during the first season. I’m fine if MTV wants to mine this property for a new TV series, but doing Scream without Ghostface feels a little pointless. Hit the jump for more on the show. MTV broke the news of the series order on Twitter (via THR), tweeting »

Conan & Max Weinberg reunite after nearly 5 years Weinberg, who was Conan O'Brien's bandleader from 1993 until Conan's "Tonight Show" ended in January 2010, made his first appearance on the "Conan" TBS show, helping fill in on drums. Neil Patrick Harris: “In a perfect world, in five years I’m Ed Sullivan” Harris talked about his variety show dreams with Charlie Rose: "Once a week I’d get to, like, show everyone amazing performances on Broadway, amazing magicians, this great restaurant that we went to — to be a bit of a tastemaker. I’d get to be P.T. Barnum.” Plus: Will Harris save variety — or bury it? This is how the “Game of Thrones” Iron Throne is supposed to look Martin has said the show got the Iron Throne wrong: "I said repeatedly the Iron Throne is huge. It towers over the room like a great beast. And it's ugly. »

The Scream TV series that had many questioning why it was even conceived is officially going ahead with a 10-episode order at MTV. Just last week we reported that Ghost Face may not even appear in the show because as it stands right now, the mask can't be used. Dimension TV is producing, with Harvey and Bob Weinstein set to executive produce, and original Scream franchise director Wes Craven will serve as one of its producers. Next month Wes Craven’s A Nightmare On Elm »

“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. »
