Scream (also known as Scream 5) is an upcoming American slasher film directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett and written by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick. The film is produced by Vanderbilt, Chad Villella, Paul Neinstein and William Sherak, with Kevin Williamson serving as an executive producer. With any "Scream" film comes a new batch of Ghostface victims and, at least, one killer. Scream (Originally titled "Scary Movie") is a horror film directed by Wes Craven and written by Kevin Williamson. The film revitalized the slasher film genre in the mid s, similar to the impact Halloween () had on the late s film, by using a standard concept with a tongue-in-cheek approach that combined straightforward scares with dialogue, that satirized slasher film conventions. The film series began with Scream, premiering on December 18, at the AMC Avco theater in Westwood, California and was generally released on December 20, Based on a screenplay by screenwriter Kevin Williamson and directed by Wes Craven, creator of the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, Scream offered a self-referential approach to horror by featuring a cast of characters aware of. The script was extremely original, as they had purposely set out to parodie the typical slasher style movie. It was written in a way that deceived and tricked and had you jumping out of your seats but also laughing at the paradoxical black humour. For anyone looking for a good horror film with a twist, you won't find a better one than Scream.

We open with a mysterious voice calling up a girl called Casey, who is home alone about to watch a scary movie. She tries to blow him off but he is persistent and eventually begins to creep her out.
Things don't end too well for Casey, or her boyfriend, Steve, after a masked assailant has finished with them.
We then switch to another girl, Sidney, her mother had been murdered almost a year ago and her father is about to leave on a business trip.
All the talk the next day at school is about the murder and on returning home Sidney receives a call from a man with a mysterious voice.
She isn't so easily scared, but still she is attacked by the same masked assailant. Having fought him off, her boyfriend, Billy turns up just before Deputy Dewey.
Having found a cell phone on him, Dewey arrests Billy and Sidney goes to stay the night with Dewey's sister, Tatum. As time goes by the bodies begin to mount up and this attracts the media, particularly ambitious reporter, Gale Weathers.
It's only a matter of time before Sidney is to be the next on the list, and anyway, there's a score to settle and an awful lot of suspects.
This made a refreshing change for me, a horror film that doesn't take itself too seriously but at the same time has all the scares and shocks of a more serious one.
I liked it! Decent performances all round; Neve Campbell did a good job as Sidney, as did Skeet Ulrich as Billy. Also of note were Courteney Cox as Gale Weathers, David Arquette as Deputy Dewey and Matthew Lillard as Stuart.
Also nice cameos from Drew Barrymore as Casey, Wes Craven very briefly appeared as Fred the Janitor and Henry Winkler as Principal Arthur Himbry.
There is a great soundtrack too, including an interesting acoustic rendition of 'Don't Fear the Reaper' when Sidney and Billy are first seen on screen together very nicely done.

The Scream 3 original soundtrack was released on January 25, by Wind-up Records featuring 18 songs consisting largely of the metal genre by artists such as System of a Down and Powerman , some of which are represented in the film.
The album fared better than its predecessors, spending fourteen weeks on the Billboard and reaching a top rank of Reviewer Steve Huey claims that the "high pedigree" of the albums contributors had produced a "pretty listenable album".
The Scream 3 score was again helmed by Marco Beltrami who employed seven orchestrators and experimented with the recording of instruments in unusual circumstances such as physically and electronically altering the traditional sound of a piano while continuing to include a heavy vocal orchestra in his tracks  There was consideration that Beltrami was forced to hire multiple orchestrators to complete the score to meet the film's deadline.
The Scream 4: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack was released on April 12, by Lakeshore Records. The soundtrack received mixed reactions, with Gotham News stating that "This new album attempts to retain the style of the old, while speaking to the present content-diluted market.
It has some success, but no cigar. It received mixed reviews. Filmtracks stating that "Despite the memorable history Beltrami has afforded the franchise musically, Scream 4 is a substantially disappointing continuation of the narrative.
He and four assistant composers handle the entry from a purely functional stance, tackling individual scenes with stylistic remnants of the previous scores while accomplishing absolutely nothing new.
It wants to be full of action and chills and it is. It succeeds and I had a blast listening to this from start to finish. A documentary film, Still Screaming: The Ultimate Scary Movie Retrospective ,  was released in April This film was written and directed by Ryan Turek.
The documentary discusses the first three movies in the series and includes interviews with Wes Craven , Neve Campbell , and other cast members.
Amidst the series' success, it has also been tinged with controversy with claims of real-world copycat crime inspirations and inducing violence.
In January , year-old Mario Padilla and his year-old cousin, Samuel Ramirez stabbed Mario's mother, Gina Castillo, 45 times, killing her. The case became known as the " Scream murder" and fell under intense media scrutiny after the boys claimed they were inspired by Scream and Scream 2.
They would also admit to needing the money acquired from Gina's murder to fund a killing spree and purchase two Ghostface costumes and a voice-changer used by the character in the film.
During their trial, psychologist Madeline Levine, who studied the effect of violence on children, stated "There were a whole bunch of reasons why they acted out that way.
But did the movie provide a blueprint? The case was expected to highlight the effect of violent films on teenagers but the presiding judge, John Cheroske, ordered that evidence pertaining to Scream be barred and that the case not be referred to as the " Scream murder", refusing media access to the courtroom , intending that the case was tried as murder and nothing else.
On January 17, , year-old Ashley Murray was stabbed multiple times in the head and back before being left for dead by his then-friends Daniel Gill, 14, and Robert Fuller, 15; he was later found and saved by an elderly man walking his dog.
The pair were dubbed the " Scream attackers" after it emerged that they had watched Scream shortly before the attack and drawings of the Ghostface mask were found amongst their possessions, though their actions were additionally blamed on physical abuse , drugs and exposure to black magic in their home life.
On May 4, , following the Columbine incident and increasing news media scrutiny on the effects on society of violence in films, games and other media, the United States Senate Commerce committee held a hearing about Hollywood's marketing of films to youths and the horror genre of films in particular, using the opening scene of Scream featuring the murder of Casey Becker , as an example of negative media which may be viewed by children.
In November , Belgian Thierry Jaradin, 24, garbed in a Ghostface mask and costume murdered year-old Alisson Cambier after she rejected his romantic advances.
Jaradin later claimed to police that the murder was premeditated and inspired by the Scream film trilogy.
French authorities of the time claimed the murder as the third Scream related killing since From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. American horror media franchise.

Regisseur Wes Craven ist als Hausmeister Fred zu sehen, durch Kleidung und Name als Anspielung auf Freddy Krueger zu erkennen.
Linda Blair spielt eine Reporterin. Im Frühjahr suchte man nach einem geeigneten Drehort. Miramax wollte die Dreharbeiten in Vancouver stattfinden lassen, um ein Budget von 15 Millionen US-Dollar nicht zu überschreiten.
Wes Craven wollte gerne in Kalifornien drehen, um den Film amerikanisch aussehen zu lassen, doch das wäre eine Million US-Dollar teurer als Aufnahmen in Vancouver gewesen.
Craven bezog einen klaren Standpunkt gegenüber den Produzenten und machte ihnen klar, dass er auf jeden Fall in Kalifornien drehen würde.
Daraufhin waren einige der Beteiligten bei Miramax der Meinung, man solle einen anderen Regisseur verpflichten.
Die Weinstein-Brüder gaben jedoch nach, da sie der Meinung waren, die Zugkraft des Namens Wes Craven sei mehr wert als die eine Million US-Dollar Mehrkosten.
Wes Craven besuchte also potentielle Drehorte in Kalifornien und wurde in der Stadt Santa Rosa fündig. Einer der Hauptgründe für den Drehort Santa Rosa war die High School, in der viele der Aufnahmen entstehen sollten.
Obwohl der Direktor und andere Offizielle zunächst Zustimmung signalisierten, war es die Schulverwaltung, die die Dreharbeiten in letzter Minute untersagte.
Man war zunächst davon ausgegangen, dass der Film eine Parodie sei, und zeigte sich nun schockiert, als man erfuhr, dass es sich um einen Horrorfilm handelte.
Im Nachbarort fand man jedoch eine Alternative in Räumen, die einmal eine Highschool waren, doch nun als Gemeindezentrum genutzt wurden.
Dort wurden alle Szenen gedreht, die an oder in der Woodsboro High School spielen. Die Dreharbeiten begannen am April In den ersten fünf Tagen wurde der Prolog des Films aufgenommen, in dem Drew Barrymore durch den Killer getötet wird.
Der gesamte dritte Akt des Films, ca. Diese Szenen wurden in 21 Nächten abgedreht. Kurz vor der Veröffentlichung setzte Bob Weinstein die Änderung des Titels von Scary Movie zu Scream durch.
Das restliche Team war zunächst nicht mit der Änderung einverstanden, hält sie rückblickend aber für den richtigen Schritt.
Die Premiere des Films fand am Dezember in Los Angeles statt, zwei Tage später startete er in den Vereinigten Staaten in den Kinos.
Sie gingen davon aus, dass zu dieser Zeit nur Familienfilme gesehen würden. Bob Weinstein bestand jedoch auf dem Termin, gerade weil Horrorfans zu dieser Zeit keine anderen Filme im Kino sehen konnten.
In Deutschland war der Film ab dem Oktober in den Kinos zu sehen. Weltweit spielte er über Millionen US-Dollar ein, davon ca.
Scream bekam bei seiner Veröffentlichung überwiegend gute Kritiken. Scream zog bis drei kommerziell erfolgreiche Fortsetzungen nach sich und belebte das totgeglaubte  Horrorgenre in den er-Jahren neu.
Auch rückblickend bekommt der Film fast ausnahmslos gute Kritiken, so wurde er z. Mit Scary Movie gab es auch eine kommerziell sehr erfolgreiche Horror-Persiflage zu der Filmreihe Scream aus den Jahren , , , Deren zentrale Grundlage bildeten immer die Scream-Filminhalte.
Ein weiterer Film, der sehr an die Filmreihe erinnert, ist der entstandene und sehr erfolgreiche Horror-Film Happy Deathday.

Excerpts from the soundtrack appear in the film. Paris warned him that the level of violence and gore in his script would make it "impossible" to sell.
However, once Craven was secured as director, he was able to bring much of the excised content back. Craven insisted the scene should remain, as he felt it developed the character and her relationship with her deceased mother.
Williamson later confirmed that he was glad that Craven proved him wrong about the scene. Dimension Films head Bob Weinstein realized while reviewing the script that there were thirty pages approximately thirty on-screen minutes without a murder, so he instructed Williamson to have another character killed.
Williamson had struggled to find a reason for several extraneous characters to leave a party scene so that the killer could attack, finally determining that the announcement of the discovery of Himbry's corpse would serve to remove the non-essential characters who are so upset that they leave the party before and enabling the start of the murders.
Opinions at the studio were split between those who believed a motive was needed for resolution and those who felt the action was scarier without one.
As there were two killers, Williamson decided to do both: Billy Loomis had the motive of maternal abandonment, while the second killer, Stu Macher, jokingly suggests "peer pressure" as his motive when prompted.
Dimension had previously released several horror films and intended to focus on that genre. Konrad brought the script to Bob Weinstein's assistant, Richard Potter.
Believing it had potential, he brought it to Weinstein's attention. Williamson said he chose Dimension because he believed they would produce Scary Movie immediately and without significantly censoring the violence in the script.
However, by the time Craven read the script, it had already been sold. Bob Weinstein approached Craven early in the planning stages, because he felt Craven's previous work in the genre that combined horror and comedy would make him the perfect person to bring Williamson's script to screen.
Craven was already busy developing a remake of The Haunting and was considering distancing himself from the horror genre. He was growing weary of what he felt was an inherent misogyny and violence in it.
Romero , and Sam Raimi. When production of The Haunting collapsed, Craven was freed from that commitment and found himself in need of a project.
When he heard an established actress wanted to be involved, Craven reasoned that Scary Movie might be different from other films of the genre he had previously undertaken, and he contacted Weinstein to accept the job.
As the film neared completion, the Weinstein brothers changed the film's title from Scary Movie to Scream. Bob Weinstein considered Scary Movie to be an unsuitable title as, in addition to the horror and violence, the film contained elements of satire and comedy; Weinstein wished for that to be better conveyed by the title.
The change was effected so late into production that congratulatory gifts bore the original name. Sony Pictures filed a lawsuit against Dimension Films and Miramax, claiming that the title " Scream " infringed on the copyright of Sony's own Screamers , released the previous year.
After the case was settled out of court—the details remain confidential— Scream 2 producer Marianne Maddalena considered that the case was a result of other issues between the two companies and did not truly pertain to the film's moniker.
Maddalena confirmed that the studio was free to use the Scream brand for future films. Scream was a turning point in terms of casting for the horror genre, which normally involved relatively unknown actors.
The genre was considered unsuitable for bigger names as the films had lower budgets and often attained negative critical response. She approached the production team herself to request a role.
Barrymore, a member of the Barrymore family of actors and granddaughter of actor John Barrymore , had become a star in her own right following her appearance in E.
The producers were quick to take advantage of her unexpected interest, and signed her to play the lead role of Sidney Prescott.
She instead played the smaller role of Casey Becker, which allowed her to remain involved and still gave the production the advantage of her stature.
He believed she could portray a character who was "innocent", but who could also realistically handle herself while dealing with the physical conflict and emotions required by the role.
She accepted because Scream would be her first leading role, and because she adored the character, saying "She's a fantastic character for any kind of movie.
For the character of news reporter Gale Weathers, the studio wanted a recognizable actress. They auditioned Brooke Shields and Janeane Garofalo.
She was interested in playing a "bitch" character to offset her "nice" Friends image. This image was the main reason why the producers initially refused to consider Cox for the part.
Cox continued to lobby the studio as she felt she could believably play the character; her efforts ultimately succeeded.
The casting director believed she best embodied the "spunky", "cynical" but "innocent" nature of the character. Kevin Patrick Walls and Justin Whalin were among the final candidates for the key role of Sidney's boyfriend Billy Loomis.
The producers viewed him as "perfect" for the part and noted his resemblance to a young Johnny Depp as he appeared in A Nightmare on Elm Street , one of the many films referenced in Scream.
They believed the experience helped them be more comfortable with each other, which allowed a more natural portrayal of the relationship between their characters.
David Arquette was also approached for the role of Billy Loomis but he asked to read for the part of Dewey Riley after reading the script.
Craven appreciated his softer, funnier approach to the character, and gave him the role. Casting director Lisa Beach saw Lillard in the hallway and asked him to audition for the part.
The producers favored Kennedy, believing him to best embody the role. The producers were adamant that he was the best choice and successfully fought to keep him.
Jackson , voice of the character Ghostface , was picked at the end of several weeks of local casting in Santa Rosa, where parts of Scream were filmed.
They decided that Jackson's contribution was perfect and kept it. Jackson was present on the set and spoke to actors by phone to help aid their performance.
The cast was rounded out by W. Earl Brown , who played Gale Weather's cameraman Kenny; Joseph Whipp , who portrayed Sheriff Burke; Lawrence Hecht as Neil Prescott Sidney's father ; and C.
Morgan as Hank Loomis Billy's father. Liev Schreiber appeared in a minor role as Cotton Weary, the framed killer of Sidney's mother, and Linda Blair made a brief cameo as a TV reporter outside the school.
Henry Winkler appeared as Principal Himbry, an aggressive school principal. He remained uncredited so as to not draw attention away from the young main cast.
The argument over where to film almost led to Craven being removed from the project, but the Weinsteins eventually agreed to keep the production in America.
Attention was next turned towards California ; scouts discovered Sonoma County and the cities of Santa Rosa , Healdsburg , and the nearby Tomales Bay.
The house of Barrymore's character is situated southeast of Santa Rosa on Sonoma Mountain Road, directly facing the house used in the horror film Cujo The school board insisted on seeing the script and immediately objected to the violence against teenage children and the cynical, dark dialogue, including that of the fictional school principal.
Comparisons were made between film violence and the kidnap and murder of Polly Klaas three years prior, which had left the area sensitized toward violence.
Others argued for the film's First Amendment rights. Unwilling to be delayed, Craven began filming as scheduled on the 15th.
He started with the opening scene of the film, which features Barrymore;  the scene took five days to complete.
The production was forced to find another location for the school, and ended up filming at the Sonoma Community Center, southeast of Santa Rosa.
The progress of filming was criticized early on. Bob Weinstein disliked the Ghostface mask, believing it was not "scary". Upon reviewing the dailies footage of the opening scene, the studio was concerned that the film was progressing in an unwanted direction.
They considered replacing Craven. After viewing the new footage, the studio was content to let Craven continue as director. Weinstein, having seen the mask in action, was satisfied that it could be scary.
Actors spent weeks undertaking intense emotional and physical scenes while coated in fake blood and wounds. Director of photography Mark Irwin was fired during filming of Scream ' s finale, a week before principal photography was to be completed.
Upon review of the dailies, Craven found the footage was out of focus and unusable. He retorted that if his crew were to be fired, they would also have to fire him.
The producers fired him and replaced him with Peter Deming , who finished the film. To produce the many grisly effects for the film, the producers recruited KNB Effects team Howard Berger , Robert Kurtzman , and Gregory Nicotero.
One of their first tasks was the production of a mask for the film's killer. In his script, Williamson had only described the antagonist as a "masked killer", which gave Craven no specific information on what type of mask to use or how to conceal the body.
He was told to create one that the production could own. Craven found nothing like the Ghostface design, so he had KNB develop a mask that was based on it, with enough differences to avoid any claim of copyright.
The team developed several molds based on the Ghostface design, but Craven found none were as suitable as the mask he wanted to use. While negotiations were in progress, he had KNB make a mask that was very similar to the original mask, but was appropriate for use in filming.
The mask they produced, made of a thin foam, was used in two scenes of the film: the opening scene with Barrymore's character and the murder of Principal Himbry.
Craven disliked the mask due to its slight differences from the original, and thus used the Fun World design for the rest of filming. KNB Effects created over 50 gallons of fake blood , normally composed of corn syrup and food dye, to create the special effect of severe wounds.
