Psycho sidekicks of the SCREAM killers!

Image
Teen slasher movies are known for having crazy killers with even crazier motives for killing.  But in 1996, Scream changed the game a little by adding a sidekick.  It makes sense, really -- especially if a killer wants to avoid suspicion -- it's always nice to be able to be two places at once.  And a sidekick can help out in that department.

Since 1996, many slashers have gone on to utilize the two-killer angle, but something that sets the Scream series apart is that most of the time, the sidekick is a lot crazier than the mastermind.


SCREAM -- STU MACHER

Ah, Stu, the loveable funny-guy.  But, as we know from real life, it's usually the funny guy who is the most disturbed.  And this holds true for Stu.  The mastermind, Billy Loomis, was merely seeking revenge on his girlfriend, Sidney, because it was her mother who ruined his family.  Something tells me it didn't take Billy a whole lot of convincing to get Stu to go along, though.

The first attack of the movie is Casey Bec…

Scream 2 - Entertainment Weekly Cover Story

Talk about a killer party. Those fun-loving girls from Delta Lambda Zeta have turned the swankiest mansion on the campus of Windsor College into kegger central. Pledge paddles are being put to work on errant behinds. And there's already a boisterous line forming at the SnackWells and Doritos buffet.

Oh, yeah, and Neve Campbell is out by the barbecue grill, screaming her lungs out. It's midnight on the Pasadena set of Wes Craven's Scream 2, and the slashing and impaling are well under way. One sorority sister's already been Ginsued, and Campbell's character, Sidney Prescott, wants to keep mean Mr. Ghost Mask from pulling his Benihana routine again.

Meanwhile, all Craven can do is laugh. "Maybe it's the tension," the 58-year-old director says, watching Campbell shriek away on his playback monitor. "I just think this stuff is hilarious sometimes."

He's not the only one. With its cutting one-liners and to-die-for cast, last year's Screa…

First MTV Scream season two review is in

For those of you who are thirsty for anything Scream: The TV Series related and can't wait for the season two premiere, then fear not.  Bloody Disgusting has the first review of season two's first episode.
Another thing the premiere gets right is that it is actually fun. The premiere toys with audience expectations, teasing half a dozen possible deaths for nearly every main character involved. Of course most of them are just fake-outs, but it shows that Scream is learning to play with its audience. Ann added benefit is that these characters have clearly grown up since last season. They are more relatable for the most part and since we spent 10 episodes getting to know them last season less time is spend on character development, helping to move the proceedings along at a quicker pace. Of course, since the body count is rising the series has incorporated new characters into the mix and it is handled a little clumsily. The character of Zoe (Kiana Ledé), specifically, is problem…
