“Scream 5” May Indeed Happen
Posted by LaDale Anderson on Oct 20, 2013 - 5:13:54 AM

HOLLYWOOD—It is news that horror fans have been waiting for, “Scream 5” may indeed happen, but it could be the final installment.  Producer Harvey Weinstein spoke at the Zurich International Film Festival, where he indicated he was hoping to get his brother, Bob, to do a fifth installment to the horror franchise.  Fans have been clamoring for another sequel since “Scream 4” brought the franchise back after a near decade absence. 

 

“Scream” redefined and reinvigorated the horror genre in 1996 with its tongue-in-cheek jabs at the genre as a whole.  It became a box-office hit grossing over $100 million domestically. “Scream 2” set standards for what a sequel should be introducing new rules that made the film nearly equal if not better than its predecessor.  Unfortunately for fans, “Scream 3” was a dismal disappointment amongst critics and fans, as it was the supposed finale in the saga involving Sidney (Neve Campbell), Dewey (David Arquette) and Gale (Courteney Cox).

“Scream 4” saw the return of the original cast and newcomers, that brought life back into the series, but was a box-office bust only taking in a little under $40 million.  Kevin Williamson who stepped aside for the third installment, wrote the fourth outing, but after a disagreement with the Weinstein Company backed out of a fifth and sixth installment, which were expected as a part of a new trilogy. 

 

Fans can only hope, Williamson may divulge one day what his plans were for the fifth and sixth outings of the franchise; it must’ve been good if he came up with a fresh idea for a new trilogy.  Sidney, Dewey and Gale have all survived four sociopaths, yes four, which means some staple characters have to bite the dust in the final installment.

 

It’s not a question of who, it’s more of a question of how. The “Scream” flicks have been known for killing off characters in the opening; don’t kill a major character in the opening unless it leads to a mind blowing twist. It’s predictable at this point. The final installment needs to go back to the basics; “Scream” and “Scream 2” worked so well because there was a quality ”˜story’ that unfolded; keep it simple and the audience will follow.

 

If “Scream 5” is indeed the final chapter in the horror saga, I’m sure The Weinstein Company will go out with a bang; now it’s just a waiting game of when it will be released.
