How's it going my gumdrops? Can you believe that today is the day, that the Slasher Horror film SCREAM released in movie theaters 20 years ago?! Wow! Where has the time gone? In 1996, I was only 14 years old.
During that same time, Beavis And Butt-Head Do America released and I went to see that movie with my uncle. Yes, you read that correctly. Both SCREAM and Beavis And Butt-Head Do America are celebrating their 20th anniversaries today.
Because you must be AT LEAST 17 years old, in order to go see an R-rated movie, I never watched SCREAM on the big screen. Yes, I know. Adolescents under 17 would sneak into an R-rated film, if they did NOT have a parent or another adult to take them to go see it.
However, that was never the case for me. By the time I was 14 years old, I normally rented R-rated movies with my mother at local video stores. In order for SCREAM to get an R-rating, a few scenes actually had to be deleted.
In the 2011 documentary, SCREAM: The Inside Story, the cast and crew mentioned, that some scenes were removed from SCREAM.
Do you remember those scenes of Drew Barrymore playing the character, Casey?
Ghostface sadistically grilled her over the telephone about Classic Slasher films and their moral villains. The filmmakers had to delete this scene of Casey's boyfriend being gutted on the patio.
1) SCREAM [Deleted Scene]: Casey's Boyfriend Steve Is Gutted (1996)
The filmmakers also had to edit scenes of Casey being hung from a tree.
2) SCREAM [Deleted Scene]: Casey Hanging From The Tree (1996)
Here are 3 more scenes that were removed from the movie, SCREAM.
3) SCREAM [Deleted Scene]: Tatum's Death By Garage Door (1996)
4) SCREAM [Deleted Scene]: Kenny The Camera Man Gets His Throat Slit (1996)
5) SCREAM [Deleted Scene]: Stuart's Hand Drips A Puddle Of Blood After He & Billy Stab Each Other (1996)
Now that you have watched SCREAM's deleted scenes from above, it is only fitting to revisit these past blogs from 2014. While I was on social media yesterday, I re-shared my previous blog regarding a review, that I published about Christmas Slashers.Those Slashers date as far back as 1972.
Most people are unaware that Christmas Slashers are some of the roots to the Slasher Horror genre. Without Christmas Slashers, John Carpenter's Halloween would've never existed today. If you read my Christmas Slashers review, I explain about this.
Since we are on the topic of SCREAM, the franchise still appears to be a very popular franchise 20 years later. In fact, I was quite surprised that MTV chose to remake this 20-year-old Slasher Horror film into a TV series.
You may be wondering, What do you think about MTV remaking SCREAM into a show?
Truthfully, it was highly unneccesary for a network, which was originally dedicated to airing MUSIC VIDEOS to be jumping on the bandwagon of remaking films. Even though I never bothered to watch the TV series for SCREAM, it's quite evident that Hollywood filmmakers and screenwriters are seriously in need of MUCH newer and a lot more ORIGINAL material.
It appears that most filmmakers today are too hung up on their nostalgia. This Slasher did NOT need to have its own TV series in this era. It would've made sense if SCREAM had its own show, during the time when the film was popular in the late 1990's.
Other than that, MTV and the creators of SCREAM's series are desperately reaching for viewership. The trilogy had its time and needs to stay in the past without Hollywood filmmakers ruining its legacy for money.
Now, let's take a murderous trip down memory lane by watching the documentary SCREAM: The Inside Story. The uncensored version of this documentary, which I originally uploaded to the following blog, was removed from YouTube.
Therefore, I was forced to update my blog with a censored version of it. So, bear with me. Anyway, here's SCREAM: The Inside Story to celebrate the 20th anniversary of SCREAM.
