After wallowing in (fun) stupidity for the entirety of the 80s, the genre slowly began gravitating away from functioning in excess by default – after all, you can only be considered over-the-top and boundary pushing for so long before everyone starts copying you and you seem boring in comparison. With only two or three memorable horror films materializing every year, something really needed to be done. Something that would completely tear down the genre and rebuild it from the ground up. Something like Scream. READ MORE

Scream-Trilogy.net caught a random tweet by horror director/producer Eli Roth that indicated he was interviewed for a forthcoming Scream documentary — only they discovered it wasn’t for the effort previously announced here on Bloody Disgusting. They learned that Scream: The Inside Story is being directed by Dan Farrands, the man behind the absolutely astounding Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy and the subpar His Name Is Jason: 30 Years Of Friday The 13th. Slasher fans will also recognize him as writer of Dimension Films’ Halloween: The Curse Of Michael Myers. They also learned that this will be a made-for-TV event that will air on A&E/BIO Channel next year, presumably close to Scream 4‘s April 15 release. READ MORE
Anthony Masi, who is currently producing the Hellraiser documentary, is reteaming with horror journo Ryan Turek on a definitive look at the Scream franchise. Given the blessing of Bob Weinstein and Wes Craven, Turek and Masi have been hard at work on the doc since March and have amassed dozens of interviews with cast and crew from the series. The feature will also include a fictional tie-in that’s to be filmed in Los Angeles later this month. “This documentary will include rare archival footage, never-before-seen photos, new on-set stories, and will reveal the entire success of Scream from its inception right up to the new movie,” Masi tells Bloody Disgusting. Plans are to release the doc (DVD and TV) to coincide with Scream 4, in theaters April 15. Turek, editor-in-chief of Shocktillyoudrop, wrote and directed both the Hellraiser and Scream docs.
