Mad Men is known for its retro references, but the premiere of season seven had us feeling nostalgic for a different era: the '90s. Neve Campbell, famous for Scream and Party of Five, popped up as a potential love interest for Don Draper. She's not the first actor familiar to many of us millennials from our childhood to get a part on AMC's 1960s period drama. Show creator Matthew Weiner recently shed light on the casting, telling the New York Times, "I want to give people the chance to be seen in a new light." And indeed he does. Since guest appearance are never announced by the network, the surprise cameos have definitely become a fun part of watching, and some have turned into more regular roles. Let's take a look our favorites. View Slideshow › »

Can't get enough A Nightmare on Elm Street? You're not alone! A few years ago I had the good fortune to work on what has become the definitive horror documentary, Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy. Now the dark journey is about to continue in print form from one of its co-creators.
From the Press Release
Thommy Hutson, writer and producer of definitive genre docs such as Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy and Inside Story: Scream and producer of More Brains! A Return to the Living Dead and Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th, is excited to announce he is taking his journey down Elm Street a lot farther and in a whole new way.
Hutson has written a coffee table book detailing the original Wes Craven classic in a way no one has before. This over 200-page, hardcover tome is entitled »

Like Linda Cardellini last year, Neve Campbell wasn’t allowed to celebrate being cast as a woman who tempts Don Draper, as she did on last night’s season-seven premiere epiosde of Mad Men. A beautiful widow with a sad story, her character tells Don, “This is nice,” as the two fall asleep next to each other on board their flight from Los Angeles to New York. Don ultimately passes on her offer to make him feel better, but when asked about the casting of the Party of Five and Scream star, Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner told Vulture, with a smile, “You had to know what Don was giving up.” Finally allowed to break her silence following Sunday’s final-season premiere, Campbell talked to us about having to keep her snuggle time with Jon Hamm quiet — and kinda sorta left us with the impression that she’ll be back before it all ends. »

Sarah argues that MTV's Scream TV pilot could be a great addition to the franchise...
There are lots of reasons to be pessimistic about the proposed Scream TV show. You could see the idea as a cynical cash grab, an attempt to wring the last few dollars out of the franchise after Scream 4 failed to do as well as its predecessors at the box office. You might wonder why you’d bother taking a recognisable brand name and applying it to what sounds like a completely different property anyway. And you might well look at some of Wes Craven’s non-Scream projects over the last decade and wonder if he’s in touch with what a modern horror audience even wants.
But where’s the fun in that? If you’re a horror fan, you’re probably well acquainted with the thrill »

MTV has been developing a TV series based on the Scream franchise, and the network has started the casting process. Thanks to TV Line, we have plot information and character details on four of the series regulars.
The pilot episode was written by Jill Blotevogel (Ravenswood, Harper’s Island, Eureka). The reports also says that the series "kicks off with a YouTube video going viral, which will have adverse repercussions for teenager Audrey and seemingly serve as the catalyst for a murder that opens up a window to [her] town’s troubled past.”
There's still no word on who will be directing the pilot, but I know the network has been working hard trying to get Wes Craven on board.
Here are the character breakdowns:

Jill E. Blotevogel ("Ravenswood," "Harper's Island") penned the pilot in which a viral Youtube video triggers a murder that brings a town's troubled past to the surface. There are four main characters:
A 16-year-old beauty who is in with the popular crowd, though is a bit too introverted and smart to truly be one of them. She regrets drifting away from former best friend Audrey.
Harper's former friend, daughter of a Lutheran pastor, she's an artsy loner who is bi-curious and dreams of being a filmmaker.
Audrey's closest friend, a tech genius with an encyclopedic knowledge of movies, TV, books and apps. He's the show's comic relief.

Harper's mother and the town's medical examiner »

Over the last few years we’ve seen a resurgence of horror and serial killer dramas make their way to our television sets and give us nightmares on a weekly basis. Dexter opened the door for serial killers, which has led to shows like The Following, Bates Motel, and Hannibal. We’ve also seen shows like The Walking Dead, American Horror Story, Supernatural, Sleepy Hollow, and now the upcoming David Duchovny-starring Aquarius fall into the horror genre, each with varying degrees of success. In the near future, MTV will be taking a stab (pun intended) at the horror game by bringing the popular Scream series to the small screen.
That’s right, Ghostface and the unlucky town of Woodsboro are headed to TV. It’s been about a year since MTV greenlit the pilot and things have been pretty quiet ever since. Thanks to TVLine though, we now have »

First rumoured back in April 2013, it seems that the television spin-off to horror franchise Scream will happen. The show which will air on MTV has begun the initial round of casting ahead of filming of a pilot.
Scream was a film seen by many as the film which rejuvenated the horror genre which at the tail end of the nineties had found itself stagnating in straight-to-video hell. Filled with references to the classics that had come before, the film which was written by Kevin Williamson and directed by horror legend Wes Craven was exactly the fresh air that everyone was in need of. The three sequels that followed didn’t live up tp the spark created by the first but maybe the small screen can succeed where the big screen failed.
The plot of the series will kick off with a viral You Tube video, which results in a string »

What have we known about the "Scream" television series to date? Well, Wes Craven has been circling the director's chair for the forthcoming MTV production. He's been rumored to be involved since last year. Jay Beattie and Dan Dworkin were brought in to script the pilot, however, according to TVLine , Jill Blotevogel ( Harper's Island , Eureka ) is apparently the writer responsible now. The outlet adds the proposed series "kicks off with a YouTube video going viral, which will have adverse repercussions for teenager Audrey and seemingly serve as the “catalyst for a murder that opens up a window to [her] town’s troubled past."

There's nothing new about directors returning to the stories and characters they first brought to the screen years before. Director Fritz Lang directed his first film featuring the mesmeric master of disguises Doctor Mabuse in 1922; he then returned to make The Testament Of Dr Mabuse in 1933, before heading back one final time for The Thousand Eyes Of Dr Mabuse in 1960 - the director's last film.
In recent years, however, it's become increasingly common for directors to return to the film series they began years earlier. It's an attempt, perhaps, to return to themes that still interest them, or to tell a new story in the same landscape as before, or maybe because of a Hollywood deal too lucrative to turn down. As the selection below proves, »
The pilot will center a young teenager named Audrey and starts when a viral Youtube video triggers a murder that brings up her town's troubled past to the surface. The studio has also released a list of four main characters. Check out the full descriptions below.
* Harper Duval: A 16-year-old beauty "who's a little too introverted and intellectual to be a social butterfly" but has nevertheless been annointed by the popular crowd to be one of their own. "She feels guilty that she has drifted away from former best friend Audrey," but at least she's got a Gilmore Girls-esque relationship with mom Maggie to keep her sane.
* Audrey Jesen: Haper's former Bff is described as "the bi-curious daughter of a Lutheran pastor" who's "more arresting-looking than pretty. »

The popularity of horror films can be traced back to the golden age of cinema when monsters like Frankenstein, The Wolfman and The Mummy ruled the big screen, but in recent years, a different sort of monster has taken over television. Ever since Dexter premiered on Showtime in 2006, all the networks have been on a persistent quest to recreate that character drama’s success.
Now, some eight years later, a number of TV shows prominently feature serial killers, including The Following, Bates Motel and Hannibal. Meanwhile, NBC just greenlit to series a Charles Manson drama with David Duchovny and CBS has a Kevin Williamson serial killer pilot in contention for next season. Not to ...

Get ready to "Scream" at your television soon -- MTV is finally casting the drama pilot based on the popular movie franchise.
As TV Line reports, the network is looking for actors to play the four main characters. The pilot begins with a YouTube video going viral, which is bad news for a teen girl named Audrey and serves as a "catalyst for a murder that opens up a window to [her] town's troubled past."
The four main characters are: beautiful, popular 16-year-old girl Harper; her former best friend, Audrey, a bi-curious "artsy loner"; her friend Noah, a brilliant computer geek who could be the next Steve Jobs; and Harper's mom, Maggie, the town's medical examiner who's hiding a "dark secret from her past."

New details have emerged about MTV's TV pilot based on the Scream films.
A television adaptation of the Scream franchise was first announced in April 2013.
The show's four main characters will be Harper Duval, Audrey Jesen, Noah Foster and Maggie Duval, TVLine reports.
Harper is a shy but popular 16-year-old girl, who enjoys a close relationship with her mother Maggie - the town's medical examiner.
Audrey was once Harper's best friend, though the pair have recently drifted apart, while Noah is Audrey's closest confidante - a tech geek with an encyclopaedic knowledge of books, films, TV and apps.
It is currently unclear if any characters or actors from the four Scream movies - released between 1996 and 2011 - will feature in MTV's pilot.
The pilot will begin with a YouTube video going viral, which soon sparks a string of murders in a quiet town with a troubled past.
