DVD Review – Varsity Blood (2014)

19 August 2014 12:56 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Varsity Blood, 2014

Directed by Jake Helgren

Starring Lexi Giovagnoli, Wesley Scott, Debbie Rochon, Natalie Peyton, Blair Jackson, Elyse Bigler, Melody Herron


A pack of small town jocks and cheerleaders with a dark secret head out to a remote farmhouse for a raucous Halloween pasture party, only to find themselves up for slaughter by someone dressed as their high school mascot, an Indian warrior wielding a lethal fighting ax and a bow and arrow.


Varsity Blood is a slasher movie born out of love for the genre. Sadly, it’s a movie that tries to emulate a genre and yet misses the point of what made those movies so entertaining by such a wide margin that it just becomes a chore to finish. It’s heart might have been in the right place, but the execution (no pun intended) is so poor that you have to wonder whether they »

‘Scream’ TV Series Casts ‘Arrow’ Star In Lead Role

19 August 2014 12:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It has been recently confirmed that the lead actor for TV spin-off of 90′s horror franchise, Scream, has been recast in the form of Arrow‘s Bex Taylor-Klaus.

MTV’s production of the iconic film was already in place and set to go, until later on after a table-reading of the script with the cast. Originally, Amy Forsyth from TV show Defiance was meant to take on the leading role, but she has now been swapped in favor of Taylor-Klaus. The actress, better known for her character Sin from Arrow will play Aubrey Jensen, a loner who aspires to be a filmmaker.

It will be interesting to see what direction MTV will be going with the story, due to the many antagonists that played Ghost Face in the film  were targeting Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) mainly because of her Mother’s dodgy past. It’s safe to say the subject »

MTV’s Scream Adds Hot Teacher, Sheriff And Two More

18 August 2014 5:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Just two weeks ago, MTV announced that it had set director Jamie Travis (Faking It) to helm the pilot episode of a series based on the popular meta-horror Scream franchise. At the same time, the network revealed a cast of young up-and-comers, including Willa Fitzgerald (Alpha House, Royal Pains), Amy Forsyth (Reign), John Karna (The Neighbors), Carlson Young (Key and Peele) and Amadeus Serafini. Now, some more casting news, including a major recasting, has been announced.

Bex Taylor-Klaus, who became a fan favorite on The CW’s Arrow with his portrayal of DC Comics character Sin, will be replacing Forsyth in the role of Audrey, the daughter of a Lutheran pastor, who is described as “an artsy loner who aspires to be a filmmaker.” Audrey used to be close friends with protagonist Emma Duvall (Fitzgerald), “a classic beauty whose looks and popularity hide a natural shyness and intellectual nature.” Emma, »

Bex Taylor-Klaus Joining MTV’s Scream

17 August 2014 7:08 AM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

It looks like MTV cannot keep it right for Scream. Just after a new bunch of young stars were named for the show, we are already learning of new casting of replacements. This time we see Bex Taylor-Klaus joining the show, replacing Amy Forsyth. Bex will play the main role of Amy Jenson, who will be the star character of the show. No word was given as to why they made the switch. The series will likely air in 2015.

Fans of the original franchise are worried on what MTV will do with it. The network seemed like a good one since they to shock people. However, they will likely play it on the safe side compared to Wes Craven who had to edit his horror movie down to a barely rated R. So far it appears that rest of the original cast that they announced has remained the same.

‘Scream’ TV Series Adds Additional Cast Members

16 August 2014 9:08 AM, PDT | | See recent Screen Rant news »

After seeing diminished success on the big screen, Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson’s Scream franchise is heading to the small screen via MTV. The show, which won’t have any connection to the film series, revolves around a group of teens who are terrorized by a killer after a YouTube video goes viral. Although the original films are strictly slasher flicks, Harvey Weinstein suggested the television series could delve more into the supernatural aspects of horror.

The Scream television series has been in development for two years, but recently the pilot has locked in writers Dan Dworkin and Jay Beattie (Criminal Minds, Revenge), director Jamie Travis (Faking It), and an executive producer/showrunner: Jill Blotevogel (Harper’s Island, Ravenswood). MTV ...

Some quick casting news is here for the upcoming MTV series based on the Scream franchise as THR is reporting that four more actors have signed on for active duty, one of whom will be replacing the previously announced Amy Forsyth.

‘Scream’ TV Show Reveals Cast, Director & Characters

5 August 2014 7:09 PM, PDT | | See recent Screen Rant news »

“Do you like scary movies?”

In the roughly 18 years since it first released, Scream has earned its place as a modern horror classic. Sure, the sequels were never able to recapture what made the first so frighteningly fun, and Ghostface has been lampooned in countless parodies, but Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson’s Scream still holds up as a slasher flick that both celebrates and mocks the genre.

As it turns out, Scream is also the next property getting a new spin on life as an MTV teen drama. Following in the steps of the very successful Teen Wolf, this series based on the Scream franchise will again follow a group of teens as their town is terrorized ...

‘Scream’ TV series moving forward with cast and director announcement

5 August 2014 3:20 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Wes Craven’s 1996 Scream was easily one of the best and most influential horror films of the 1990s. Its sequel in 1997 was just as successful with critics, audiences, and at the box office. The franchise faltered with 2000’s Scream 3, but started to take a step back in the right direction with 2011’s Scream 4. While rumors have persisted for sometime that a Scream 5 is in the works, Entertainment Weekly reports that a TV series based on the popular franchise is officially moving forward and now has a cast and director.

In development since 2012, the Scream TV series will air on MTV, where other movie-turned-show, Teen Wolf, has a rabid cult following. The showrunner will be Jill Blotevogel (Ravenswood), while the pilot will be scripted by Jay Beattie and Dan Dworkin (Criminal Minds), and will now be directed by Jamie Travis (For a Good Time, Call…).
