What is the key difference of MTV’s Scream the TV Series, which seems to disregard the franchise continuity for a new town, new generation and new Ghostface? Well, technology, as the killer is clearly using iMessage to get his threatening points across.
Ghostface, newly unveiled by MTV, is sending punny one-liners via text and unsettling surveillance video, as well. The killer was famously always on the phone, but in the new series, will he talk? Death threats by app likely save money on a voice modulator.
Otherwise, big death house party, kid who knows everything — it’s all translated to the 2015 small screen. Can it be as good?
Scream the TV Series stars Bex Taylor-Klaus, Willa Fitzgerald, John Karna, Connor Weil and Amadeus Serafini. Jamie Travis directs the pilot. In it, After a cyber-bullying incident results in a brutal murder, the shocking violence stirs up memories of a killing spree from the past that has haunted some, intrigued others and maybe just inspired a new killer. A group of teens with two old friends struggling to reconnect at its heart become lovers, enemies, suspects, targets and victims of a killer whos out for blood.
