Manufacturer Description

Scream: After a series of strange deaths befalls their village, an unique group of buddies led by Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) end up being the target of a masked killer in this smash-hit "clever thriller" (The Washington Post) that launched the Scream franchise and revived the scary category.

Shout 2: Away at college, Sidney Prescott (Campbell) thought she 'd lastly put the shocking murders that shattered her life behind her ... up until a copycat killer begins acting out a real-life sequel. Now, as history repeats itself, ambitious press reporter Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox), deputy Dewey (David Arquette) and other Scream survivors discover themselves trapped in a terrifyingly clever plotline where no one is safe-- or beyond suspicion-- in this "tasty, diabolical and fun" (Rolling Stone) sequel.

Shout 3: While Sidney Prescott (Campbell) stays in safely secured seclusion, bodies begin dropping around the Hollywood set of "Stab 3," the current motion picture based upon the gruesome Woodsboro killings. The escalating horror lastly brings Sidney out of hiding, drawing her and the other survivors as soon as again into an insidious game of scary motion picture mayhem that's a "suspenseful, clever and very amusing" (NBC-TV) installation in the hugely popular Scream franchise.Scream With the blockbuster Scream
, novice film writer Kevin Williamson and experienced scary director Wes Craven( A Nightmare on Elm Street)restored the moldering corpse of the teen scary photo, both creatively and commercially, by playfully acknowledging the tired clichés and then turning them completely. Shout is a postmodern slasher motion picture, a scary movie that skillfully deconstructs scary films, then reassembles the dead tissue, and (like Frankenstein's beast )creates new life. When a serial killer starts hacking up their fellow teenagers, the media-savvy children of Scream realize that the smartest way of remaining for the sequel is to avoid the terminal habits that unavoidably doom supporting players in the films. They've seen all the films, and the rules of the category resemble force of habit to them. Among the scariest/funniest setups includes a children seeing John Carpenter's critical Halloween on video. As Jamie Lee Curtis is stalked by Michael Meyers and the children on the couch yells at her to reverse, Craven reverses his cam and we see that the children should be taking his own advice. The fresh-faced young cast (consisting of Drew Barrymore, Neve Campbell, Skeet Ulrich, Courtney Cox, and David Arquette )is fun to view, and their tart discussion is sprinkled with sufficient archly awkward pop-culture references to make Quentin Tarantino blush.-- Jim Emerson Shout 2 Fully knowledgeable about its status as the sequel to the surprise hit thriller of 1996, this lively follow-up trades freshness for familiarity, playing on our love for returning characters while following
-- and then subverting-- the "rules "of follows up. Once once again, motion picture references are skillfully employed to draw us into the story, which occurs 2 years after the occasions of Scream, at a small Ohio college, where the Scream survivors reunite when another series of strange killings begins. Taking advantage of the guesswork involving a host of prospective suspects, director Wes Craven and film writer Kevin Williamson have crafted a thriller that's more of a Scream clone than a genuinely inventive new story. The shocks are simply as efficient, and escalating stress leads to a tautly staged climax that's at the same time sensible and giddily over the top. Background details for trivia enthusiasts: to maintain the secrecy of plot twists, copies of the movie script were greatly secured throughout production and limited to only the most crucial personnel. When an early draft was distributed on the Internet, film writer Kevin Williamson did rewrites, and subsequent drafts were printed with red ink on brown paper, eliminating the threat of copying. None of the cast members knew who the killer was up until the final scenes were recorded!-- Jeff Shannon Shout 3 When Randy the video geek rattles off the rules of enduring a scary motion picture in Wes Craven's Scream, he promotes a generation of filmgoers who are all too knowledgeable about slasher motion picture clichés. Playfully scripted by Kevin Williamson with a self-aware wink and more than a few short nods

to its grandpas
(from Psycho to Halloween to the Friday the 13th dynasty ), Scream skewers teen scary conventions with caring respect while re-creating them in a contemporary, movie-savvy context. Therefore goes the series, which continues the satirical spoofing by tackling (what else? )follows up while sustaining its own self-contained folklore . Catty press reporter Gale Weathers(Courteney Cox)turns grisly murders into lurid bestsellers, a cult of killer wannabes remains to hunt spunky psycho-survivor Sydney Prescott(Neve Campbell)for their 15 minutes of fame, and a cheesy motion picture series(Stab)establishes within the motion picture series. Shout remains the peak of the series-- a fresh take on a category long considering that collapsed into regular, but Scream 2 spoofs itself with amusing humor("Why would anybody wish to do that? Sequels suck!"opines college movie student Randy), and thrills with more sophisticated set pieces and all-new rules for enduring a scary motion picture sequel.The endangered veterans of the initial movie reunite one last time for Scream 3, which plays out on the motion picture set of Stab 3.(It's a trilogy within a trilogy!) With Williamson gone, replacement film writer Ehran Kruger tries to mine the formula one more time. It's a little exhausted by now, and pale replicas (Urban Legend, I Know What You Did Last Summer)have additionally drained the zeitgeist, but the movie bubbles with bright humor, and director Craven is stylistically at the top of his game. As a trilogy, it remains both the most consistently amusing and self-aware scary series ever made.-- Sean Axmaker Still Scary: The Ultimate Scary Movie Retrospective/ Scream: The Inside Story As a lot of scary fans already know, the Scream franchise was stuffed with production troubles from itsbeginning through its 4th and obviously final entry,and the 2 documentaries consisted of on the 4th disc of the Scream collector's set(both which are function length, which discusses the confusion over the set's "5 Film"label)represent the first effort to combine a cohesive portrait of the series' behind-the-scenes history

. Both Still Scary: The Ultimate Scary Movie Retrospective, by editor Ryan Turek, and Scream: The Inside Story, which was produced for the Biography Channel by much of the same innovative team behind the epic Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy, cover the same ground, which is director Wes Craven and author Kevin Williamson's struggles with the MPAA, producers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, and a myriad of other outdoors forces throughout the series through interviews with many of the production principals, most notably stars Neve Campbell, David Arquette, and Jamie Kennedy (Williamson and Courteney Cox are notably missing from both tasks). Still Scary provides the more thorough discussion, thanks mainly to its addition of such less well-known players as Scream 3 scribe Ehren Kruger, who capably safeguards his much-maligned script, and provides welcome touches of visual and editorial style in its "fast cuts"sections, which present tidbits of info that, while not completely germane to the documentary's major thrust, offer the sort of information that dedicated fans of the series will certainly love. The Inside Story digs deeply into pre-production concerns, from Craven's hesitation to helm the series to the fight over Ghost Face's iconic mask and costume. Thorough conversations of the characters through discussion readings by the initial cast and screen tests, in addition to split-screen comparisons between the initial NC-17 edit and the R-rated theatrical cut, are equally invaluable. Some viewers might say with the documentaries 'conceit that the Scream franchise transformed the scary category-- reinvigorated is a more precise description-- the wealth of details presented in both films sets bench for future scary documentaries.-- Paul Gaita
