"Do you like scary TV?" That's the first line uttered when you call the promotional hotline for the MTV SCREAM TV series that will debuting in October 2015. So it's officially a year away now. It seems like this project has been gestating forever. So it's kind of nice to see a little bit of movement on the MTV front.
The official Twitter has also finally been jumpstarted, and a lot of cryptic tweets are spewing out of the account (@mtvscream).
The hotline can be reached by calling (310) 461-4299.
Yesterday was a fun day. Not only was it my birthday, but my girlfriend agreed to accompany me on a three-hour road trip to southern Indiana to check out some of the filming locations of ROSEANNE. Let me just say Evansville, Indiana is Lanford, Illinois.
Also, I'd just like to add, with simple Google searches, all the locales were relatively easy to find -- no back-roads or DELIVERANCE-style expeditions needed.
Okay, so let's get this ball rolling, shall we.
We'll start off with the infamous Third & Delaware street sign.
This is how it appeared in 1989...
And this is how it looks in 2015...
As you can see, the sign is new and they've swapped positions. But, this is the same intersection and this is the original location. Take notice of the tree in the background. That same tree is visible behind the screenshot from the show.
Now let's take a look at Lanford's favorite watering hole, the Lobo! This is how it appeared in the show...
Another Scream-related article on MorbidMuch? Say what?! Oh, don't act surprised. Our most popular Scream article is far and away the Who killed Tatum Riley? My analysis! post. But, today, I'm going to dive into Scream 2 and why I believe that Cici's (Sarah Michelle Gellar) death scene defines the series.
The movie was released in late 1997, but just to clarify...spoilers...
We're first introduced to the character of Casey "Cici" Cooper early on in the film during the sequel discussion in Film Theory class scene. It establishes that Cici is a movie buff and is hip to all the horror tropes -- she even makes it pretty clear that she isn't a fan of sequels, like Randy.
After her brief introduction, her character basically disappears until about a half-hour into the film, where we discover that she's alone in her sorority house, Omega Beta Zeta (she has the task of being "sober sister" for the night).
Just some quick thoughts regarding the H20 workprint...
I finally got around to watching the HALLOWEEN H20 workprint that I've had lying around for going on seven years now. First impression? The music/score in this print is awesome! Why oh why was the majority of the music replaced with the SCREAM score? John Ottman's score was incredible (although, I did notice that he borrowed a little bit of the I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER score).
