Rose McGowan hasn’t been acting in films with the same frequency that she did in say, the early-to-mid-2000s. But that doesn’t mean the “Scream” and “Planet Terror” star isn’t making headlines. Last month, McGowan made major waves by calling out Hollywood for what she perceived to be its “grossness and sexism,” and revealed that she had been dropped by her agent for making incendiary remarks and biting the hand that feeds, so to speak. Honestly, whether you agree with her or not, McGowan’s got a point. Gender inequality has been an unfortunate and egregious staple of Hollywood filmmaking for far too long. In this new podcast with Talkhouse Film, McGowan talks to filmmaker Mary Harron, who channeled her own inner feminist making her brilliant adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis’ “American Psycho," itself a skewering of masculine vanity and the culture of entitlement and exclusion that »

MTV's Scream series has been officially renewed for a second season...
A second season for MTV's Scream series, based on the Craven/Williamson meta horror franchise, was mooted some weeks back at San Diego Comic-Con, but lacklustre ratings have since dangled a question mark over the possibility of renewal.
That question mark dangles no more, as MTV has snipped it off using, er, the scissors of renewal. It's been officially confirmed that Scream will return for another season in summer 2016.
The official press bumf has producer Bob Weinstein promising "even more scares, surprises, romance and of course kills" in the forthcoming second run. That'll be music to the ears of our Us reviewer, who's finding more and more to enjoy about the self-aware show each week.
We still await news of a UK broadcaster for this one, and will keep you posted should any broadcaster this side of the Pond snap it up. »

No one was more surprised than I was when MTV’s Scream television series not only avoided besmirching the franchise’s good name, but actually turned out to be pretty fun. Now, the network and Dimension Television have strengthened their partnership by picking the series up for a second season.

MTV has given a second season to slasher-horror series “Scream.”
The Dimension Television series is loosely based on the horror films that followed Neve Campbell’s character and a gaggle of friends as they attempted to outrun, out-stab and outsmart a pop culture-obsessed masked killer.
Prior to last night’s fifth episode, “Scream” was averaging about 1.4 million viewers and a 0.85 rating in MTV’s target demo of adults 18-34, according to Nielsen’s “Live+3” estimates. The network said more than 21 million viewers have tuned in to at least some of “Scream” on-air, and the series has generated another 7.9 million streams across platforms.
“It has been a wonderful experience working with [exec producer] Bob Weinstein and his team, who are such connoisseurs of this genre, and we are thrilled by how our viewers have responded to the reinvention of ‘Scream,’” said Mina Lefevre, MTV’s exec VP of series development and head of scripted programming. »

The theatrical release of the original Tremors in 1990 combined suspense-filled action, sci-fi imagination and witty humor in the tale of a tiny Nevada town terrorized by giant man-eating worms known as Graboids. The Graboids eventually morphed into even more deadly creatures known as Ass Blasters. In this all-new adventure that travels halfway around the world to South Africa, the Graboids and the Ass Blasters are not only bigger and badder but Tremors 5 introduces an additional unexpected surprise that raises the stakes in the battle for survival.

Despite scepticism from fans of the franchise, MTV's Scream series honours the first rule of remakes: don't eff with the original...
The Scream franchise is deservedly adored by cinemagoers and critics, and widely considered to be one of the best horror films to come out of the back end of the 90s. You can certainly see why, with Kevin Williamson's tack-sharp script packed with zingers, its overall clever subversion of the genre, a sterling central performance from Neve Campbell and an undercurrent of cheeky fun. The third act is still, to this day, a triumphant blend of humour, (literally) knife-edge tension and genuine scares.
Few horror movies have achieved what Scream did. Or, to give it its dues, what Scream 2 also did. The sequel to Wes Craven's original hit could have been a messy affair but it achieved an improbable feat: it was just as fun and spooky as the first. »
We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Falling Skies, UnREAL, Zoo and Suits!
1 | Does Falling Skies’ Pope kinda have a point, that through three years’ worth of battles, the Mason family has barely gotten a scratch on ‘em? Also, yea or nay to Pope’s clean bean? And hey, Falling Skies/Wayward Pines fans, recognize the police station?

When MTV teased the opening eight minutes of their "Scream" spinoff series late last month, I described the scene -- which depicted the brutal, jugular-spurting murder of Bella Thorne's character -- as "lazy, gratuitous and boring." I might have added "misogynistic" to the list of descriptors. It's a piece I probably wouldn't have written five years ago. My freshman year of high school, I caught a Friday-night showing of "Halloween" and "Halloween II" back-to-back -- on basic cable, with all the sex and nudity cut out. Because this is America, what remained was the violence: stabbings, impalings, deadly hot-tub scaldings, eyes gouged with hypodermic needles. I loved it all, innocently. I still do, but with less assurance. What is it that draws me to this macabre spectacle? More to the point: should I really feel good about enjoying it? The slasher film, as a rule, is a celebration of violence. »

I’ve always been a fan of Horror and one of the most famous Horror films, well to me anyway, is the Scream franchise. (A little known fact was Wes Craven originally had the intention of calling the film ‘Scary Movie’ due to the serial killer copying other horror films; Hence ‘The Wayans Brothers’ with their parody Scary Movie).
I also remember watching the first of the series a while back, and thinking that one of the reasons I liked Scream so much, was the characters knew they were in a horror film, which added a bit of humour to the film. Something most Horror films lack (a bit of a shame really, as to me, that could add a bit of depth to the film). My favourite character had always been Randy, played by Jaime Kennedy. Mostly as he’s a nerd like me, »

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, »

Before the world premiere of the Scream Queens pilot at San Diego Comic-Con, Jamie Lee Curtis emceed the event like it was last call the night before the Navy leaves the Golden Coast, and there was still plenty of partying to do. By the time Curtis had introduced the cast, including Emma Roberts and Lea Michele, and paid her respects to Scream Queens creator Ryan Murphy, the mood in the room was wild, jubilant, and maybe a little nuts. So in many respects, it reflected the tone of the maniacally entertaining television series they were about to watch.
While I have vowed not to give away any spoilers for the first hour of Fox’s high-concept slasher/comedy/soap opera/mystery thriller, I can definitely say that at »
The tensions are rising along with the body count on MTV's Scream TV series, and last week at Comic-Con, Daily Dead took part in roundtable interviews with the show's cast, who discussed mixing creepy moments with comedy, the original Scream films, and much more.
Amadeus Serafini on his suspicious, new-in-town character, Kieran Wilcox:
"He's the brooding type. He is the new kid in town. He just lost his folks a few weeks back and that's the introduction to Lakewood, and he very much makes a move on Willa [Fitzgerald's] character Emma, and has a clash where it becomes a love triangle between Connor [Weil's] character, Will, Emma, and himself. That's pretty much all I can reveal for the time being and you're going to see how it unfolds over the course of this series."
Serafini on whether or not his parents' deaths were truly an accident:
"You're going to have to wait and see. »
