What Might Happen in Scream 5?

This week horror fans were delighted to learn that Scream 5 is in development. We know that David Arquette is already on board and Neve Campbell is in negotiations. Though Kevin Williamson isn’t writing, I am glad to see he’ll be part of the project as an executive producer. It looks like the creative team “Radio Silence”, the crew behind 2019’s Ready or Not, will be directing. That is bittersweet, given it’s the first Scream film that won’t be directed by the late horror legend, Wes Craven.

I started thinking about what I’d want to see in the fifth installment of the Scream franchise and predictions about what COULD happen. So I made a list of predictions, hopes and dreams. Some outlandish, some serious, some just plain weird. Got anything to add to the list? Let me know!

  • Randy is somehow alive and shows up
  • Cotton Weary had a son and is the killer
  • Gayle has been a victim of cancel culture or fake news
  • Ghostface Killah is the actual Ghostface killer
  • Deputy Dewey is a meme among Woodsboro High students
  • Detective Kincaid returns
  • Kirby’s sister vows vengeance against Sidney’s family
  • Maureen Prescott is actually alive?!
  • Ghostface makes threats on the dark web
  • Sheriff Dewey and Gayle’s daughter is a TikTok star
  • Rather than using a traditional knife, Ghostface wreaks havoc by spreading COVID-19 around Woodsboro
  • Sidney attends her 25th high school reunion
  • Stu is back and is just released from prison
  • Roman’s dad seeks revenge on Sidney
  • Gayle makes innocence project documentaries for Netflix
  • Stu had a baby with Tatum that they gave up for adoption, and she’s out for revenge
  • Ghostface forces the entire town of Woodsboro to participate in some sick version of a Netflix choose your own adventure movie?
  • Ghostface Takes Manhattan
  • Marlon Wayans is the killer


Let’s Talk About That “IT” Trailer…

…because it literally gave me chills. The day is finally here! Director Andy Muschietti tortured us via Instagram with images of numbered red balloons for the last several days. It didn’t take long for fans to decipher that it was a countdown to the release of the first teaser trailer for Muschietti’s upcoming adaptation of “IT”. We now finally have our first official look at Muschietti’s vision of Derry, ME and the Losers Club.

Watch it HERE:

As a faithful fan of Stephen King’s novel, I am eager to see how the full movie ends up. It will be an epic disappointment if the film panders to the high-school “jump scare horror” crowd. This fantastic first trailer gives me hope, but as we all know, too much “hype” can be a killer of movie dreams. Let’s take a deep breath and say a prayer to horror jesus that Muschietti respects the King. Nothing will top the book, but we don’t have to be complete assholes about our expectations. Let’s give “IT” a chance. Trailer looks phenomenal!

The Green Inferno’s Delayed, Y’all.

So THIS is what Lana Del Rey meant by “Summertime Sadness.”  I’m looking forward to The Green Inferno whenever it’s finally released. Hemlock Grove is just not enough Eli Roth for me.


Guess I need to update my Outlook calendar with a big TBD.
