I scream. You scream. We all scream for ice cream. Ok, ok…we will also scream for the upcoming MTV slasher show, Scream.
You may be too young to remember the original horror flick from 1996, or it’s sequels, but that shouldn’t stop you from checking out the upcoming show on MTV. It premieres on June 30th and is based on the original Kevin Williamson movie.
In an interview at Buzzfeed, Scream executive producer Jaime Paglia says that the way to turn a slasher movie into a TV series is to make viewers (that’s you) care about the characters. While the show will have a body count, it’s going to be more methodical with the kills than a traditional horror film, so that fans will feel the pain when they lose a character. They want to make you feel sad when your favorite character gets axed.
The producers also promised they are including “easter eggs” that will reference the film so fans of the Scream movie series will have something to look out for.
So tell us, do you like scary… TV shows? Check out the trailer for Scream below…
