The slasher franchise returns again- this time with some sass!
Scream on VH1 takes on the story of high school football athlete Deion (played by RJ Cyler) who comes face to face with a psychopathic murderer after dealing with unresolved conflicts from his past. Sound familiar? Sydney Prescott had a similar storyline.
When Deion was a child, he was spending Halloween night with his twin brother, Marcus, who was dressed up like Ghostface, himself. The two then went into a junkyard filled with cars where they got attacked by a man who later turns out to be a veteran played by Tony Todd- someone who is also familiar as Candyman.
Isn’t it fun when a horror movie icon makes a cameo in a reboot?
Now Deion is a teenager and is still coming to terms with what happened to him as a child. He has new friends and a new life- and a new attacker. There’s a killer out there planning to off Deion and his crew (Giullian Yao Gioiello, Keke Palmer, Tyler Posey, Jessica Sula, Christopher Jordan Wallace and Giorgia Whigham). With their own battles to deal with and different personalities (becoming the Deadfest Club), by the end of the first episode, they all realize they could be next on Ghostface’s list.
So what’s next?
Heads-up! Spoiler Alert!
After previewing an exclusive sneak peek at the next episode, there are some moments that will go down in Scream history. Remember Shane’s (Posey) horrible demise? He wasn’t the most likable dude, but what a horrible way to go! Trapped by a ladder, then a syringe in his eye followed by foam spitting was pretty…awful.
But guess what? That’s not the most violent moment so far.
There will be more coming. And not only is it bloody, but it’s filled with gripping tragedy so audiences can be on the lookout for heart stomping moments.
So far, we already have a theory that Marcus is the killer given that Liv (Sula) just told Deion that his twin brother is likely still alive- after all, he was only declared missing.
With several more episodes along the way, there will definitely be some twists and turns we didn’t see coming. And with Episode 3 viewed in advance, there are still plenty of questions to be asked…but not before the horror fans get some extra chills and thrills!
