"Scream" review by Suzanne 7/15/15
Airs Tuesdays, 10/9c on MTV

"Scream" was a movie franchise. It's a tongue-in-cheek slasher story which gleefully rips off other teen slasher movies, with a wink and a nod to the audience. The TV show is much the same. I think they do a good job with it, but other reviews I've read said it's not as scary as the movies or as good. I think it's awfully hard to make a movie into a TV series, and to expect it to be the same after a few episodes is probably asking too much. Plus, I really didn't think the original movie was all that scary. It's not exactly "Nightmare on Elm Street!" Heck, I'm not even sure it's "I Know What You Did Last Summer."

Most of the cast of this series does a really good job, and I recognize some of them from other shows.  is the show's protagonist, Emma; she was on "Royal Pains" last year as Hank and Evan's new sister. plays her friend, Audrey; she was great in both "The Killing" and "Arrow." , who used to play Carrie on "Days of Our Lives," plays Emma's mom, Maggie, who was once stalked by the killer. (Seth) played Max in "Being Human". , who played Sal in "Mad Men," is the mayor. It's a large cast, so you're bound to recognize some of them.

The show reminds me more of "Pretty Little Liars" than it does the "Scream" movies. However, a lot more people do die in this show (and it's not as good as that show nor is it as good as "Teen Wolf"). It is, of course, a slasher movie, drawn out to series form. If you don't mind that genre, give it a try. I think it's a lot of fun. I intend to keep watching.

MORE INFORMATION:

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​"Scream" premieres Tuesday, June 3o at 10 PM ET/PT on MTV.

MTV and Dimension TV’s “Scream” is based on the eponymous, international hit horror franchise. After a cyber-bullying incident results in a brutal murder, the shocking violence stirs up memories of a  killing spree from the past that has haunted some, intrigued others and maybe just inspired a new killer. A group of teens - with two old friends struggling to reconnect at its heart - become lovers, enemies, suspects, targets and victims of a killer who’s out for blood.
 

"Scream" stars Willa Fitzgerald as "Emma," Bex Taylor-Klaus as "Audrey," Carlson Young as "Brooke," Amadeus Serafini as "Kieran," John Karna as "Noah," Connor Weil as "Will," Tracy Middendorf as "Maggie" and Jason Wiles as "Sheriff Hudson."​
 

MTV and Dimension TV (The Weinstein Company) bring the series adaptation of the hit horror film franchise, "Scream" to television with Bob and Harvey Weinstein as executive producers. In addition, Jill Blotevogel ("Harper's Island," "Ravenswood") and Jaime Paglia ("The Flash" and "Eureka") will executive produce and show run, with John Shiban ("Hell on Wheels", "Breaking Bad") on board as a consulting producer. Pilot teleplay by Jill Blotevogel and Dan Dworkin & Jay Beattie ("Criminal Minds," "The Event," and "Revenge"), story by Kevin Williamson. Pilot was directed by Jamie Travis. Additional Executive Producers are Wes Craven, Tony DiSanto, Liz Gateley, Marianne Maddalena and Cathy Konrad.   ​
 


 

MEET THE "SCREAM" CAST:

 

Bella Thorne as "Nina Patterson"

Nina Patterson is the Queen Bee-yoch of GWHS, ruling her kingdom with a designer iron fist.  Even her best friend Brooke describes her as "A spoiled sociopath with no impulse control."  So, not exactly someone you want to be frenemies with. For years, Nina relentlessly bullied Audrey, Noah, and a score of other underlings at GWHS. And now, well… karma's a bitch.


 

Willa Fitzgerald as "Emma Duval"

The Good Girl. Emma is the peacemaker of her popular group.  This might be due, at least in part, to Emma's father walking out on her and her mother years ago.  It's been a rough road back to normalcy, but Emma is resilient and always tries to look for the good in people -- something the killer takes advantage of.

 

 Amadeus Serafini as "Kieran Wilcox"

Kieran is the mysterious charismatic loner.  He's the new guy in town, but he has no interest in joining the popular group, despite the fact that he and Emma have an instant chemistry.

 

Bex Taylor-Klaus as "Audrey Jensen"

Audrey is strong-minded and fearless, but sometimes her brash attitude gets her into trouble. She's a social outsider at GWHS, a creative outcast who's doing her best to be herself while pursuing her dream of being a filmmaker. She's also figuring out her sexuality, which leads to a romantic tryst with another girl… and a cyber-bullying incident that kicks the whole story off.

 

John Karna as "Noah Foster"

Noah Foster is a prodigy, a boy genius who worships at the altar of all things nerd.  When he's not working his after school job at the local comic shop, or hacking the servers at CERN just for shits and giggles, he's obsessing over video games, anime, and above all else, horror movies.  But he doesn't stop there, Noah has been fascinated with true-crime documentaries and serial killer lore ever since he was a kid, giving him insight and perspective on the events happening in Lakewood… maybe even a little too much?

 

Connor Weil as "Will Belmont"

Thoughtful, earnest and charming, Will Belmont is grade-A boyfriend material, or at least Emma certainly thinks so. Will and Emma have been dating seriously for over a year. But Emma's faith is tested one too many times. When Will lets her down and Kieran comes to town, a love triangle forms.

 

Carlson Young as "Brooke Maddox"

Brooke Maddox is Nina's second-in-command and heir apparent to her pink Prada throne. Always ready with biting commentary, Brooke appears to be a stereotypical mean-girl, but unlike Nina, Brooke is fiercely loyal to her friends… and for good reason. They're effectively the only family she's got.  Her father, Quinn Maddox is Lakewood's mayor and classic emotional black hole, while her jet-setting mom is perennially MIA.

 

Tracy Middendorf as "Maggie Duval"

Maggie is Emma's mother and Lakewood's medical examiner.  She's worked hard to develop a close relationship with her daughter, but it hasn't been easy since Emma's father, Kevin Duval left them years ago. Though she's happy to have found love with Sheriff Clark Hudson, Maggie hesitates to tell Emma, especially when a mysterious stalker from her past returns.

 

Jason Wiles as "Sheriff Clark Hudson"

After a stint in the military and a messy divorce, Sheriff Hudson started over in the quaint, quiet community of Lakewood. He's a good cop but quickly feels overwhelmed as bodies start dropping. His job is made harder by pressure from the mayor to solve the latest murders before Lakewood loses its status as "a great place to live and invest.​​​
