Scream
Season 1 Episode 7 “In The Trenches”

MTV
Air date: Tuesday, August 11th, 2015, 10pm

MTV’s Scream has been more 90210 than Wes Craven’s Scream. After 4 murders in the first three episodes, we are now 3 straight shows sans death. Last week, suspicion fell on Audrey (Bex Taylor-Klaus), whose high school tormentors and girlfriend were the victims. Emma (Willa Fitzgerald) is convinced she’s not guilty, and after her mom reveals some truths about the mysterious Brandon James killings, Audrey is freed. We have suspects galore. There’s the Mayor, who may have killed his wife. There’s the weird podcaster Piper, with a dark past (Amelia Rose Blaire). Jake and Will (Tom Maden & Connor Weil) have plenty to hide, and of course Abercrombie… sorry I mean Kieran (Amadeus Serafini), who seems to show up and disappear when he wants. After a long blood drought, last week’s episode ended with Will and Piper attacked by the masked killer in a garage, with Will being stabbed and carried off.

Scream
Season 1 Episode 6 “Betrayed”

Last week MTV’s Scream made me… well, very angry. Main character Emma (Willa Fitzgerald) who is being both physically and technologically stalked by a masked killer (who by the way has killed 3 of her friends already), AND who just got exposed on the net, as her first sexual encounter went viral decided to… you guessed it… HAVE PUBLIC OUTDOOR SEX IN THE DARK WOODS!!! If nothing else, that should lessen her chances of survival in a show based off a franchise known for its adherence of horror movie “rules.” Then again, Neve Campbell’s Sid did have sex with one of the killers in the original, and she survived the whole series.

Last week on MTV’s new horror series Scream, things got good and scary. Riley’s death put the whole town on notice, and when Emma (Willa Fitzgerald) was sent an old yearbook filled with clues, she, Audrey (Bex Taylor-Klaus), and Noah (John Karna) end up in a horror movie staple – the abandoned hospital. There they find bloody pig remains, a Brandon James mask, and Tyler’s rotting head. Noah is convinced it’s the killer’s lair, but Sheriff Hudson (James Wiles) interrupts, and the three are safe for another week. One of the things retrieved from the hospital was a flash drive; the only useful thing taken off it is a recording of Emma’s first sexual encounter with Will (Connor Weil) and whoops… it just went viral.

“Hello Emma. How’s it feel to be the star of the show?”

MTV’s ‘Scream’ Renewed For A 2nd Season!
  |  @   |  

Only 5 episodes into its first season on MTV, Scream has been renewed for a second season on the cable network. The network, once upon a time known for music videos, forayed into the world of serial horror series with the hit show Teen Wolf in 2011. Piggybacking off that success, and the explosion of horror themed shows on network and cable TV, Scream debuted in late June. And while the show tends to be more Melrose Place and less Halloween, it has maintained a steady audience in its targeted demographic.

YES! This is what I want from an episodic horror series! After a disappointing third episode, which felt like a bad episode of the OC, MTV’s Scream hit all the right buttons this week. The show encapsulated everything you’d expect from something called Scream. And in an odd twist, the acting wasn’t bad either!
