It looks like they will be using technology heavily in the series. If you’ve seen the opening scene then you know the killer is filming his victim and sending her a video of herself before he moves in. This is really creepy. We know the killer is watching her and when she finally realizes who it is, she realizes he’s been watching her too.
In the fourth film they talked about filming and did film the murders, so I’m happy that the show is following suit.
The big thing I would change is Randy’s character lasting longer. I loved his character. I always secretly wanted Sidney to end up with him, realistically I know that was never going to happen, but he was so sweet.
I loved him because he was our expert movie geek. He knew all about horror films and he knew how to survive one, not that that helped him in the end. He was a lot of fun and I wished the writers kept him around a bit longer. The show writers should keep this character around longer this time.
The last thing I want the series to do differently is the killer. I really liked the surprise at the end of Scream 4 [Spoiler Alert!] when Sidney’s cousin turned out to be the killer. She wanted to be Sidney and she also wanted to become immortal through video.
Most of the killers through the Scream films were just out for revenge. It was fun when Mickey wanted to blame the movies, but the revenge angle was just a little boring by the end. The reason why Scream 4 was good was because of the surprise killer. I liked how crazy she was, kind of a throw back to Stu and Billy. Those two were very crazy. That crazy factor I would not change. I would really like the killer to be a nice big surprise at the end though.
Ghost face is back, are you ready?
