The Forum Has Returned

Image
The message board has finally returned to Scream-Thrillogy.  We decided to give it a fresh start with a clean slate and a completely new forum.

There's currently one member...me. So join today...and let's try to make the Scream community great again.

The forum is located at the original address we had many, many years ago... screamthrillogy.proboards.com.

Some of the older fans might recognize the color scheme we went with. It was the last look of the original Scream-Trilogy board in 2002 in which we have painstakingly recreated.

The boards are simple for now: there's a General Discussion section where anything can be discussed...Scream, movies, TV, music, life, etc. And the second board is a Feedback section where you can offer the site and forum suggestions and creative feedback and request avatars and image signatures from other members.  As the site/forum grows then so will the sections.

This new forum does have a mobile interface for on-the-go members (although, the …

What tag did my un-tagged mask have?

Here's another excellent write-up from our friend Timothy DuFresne of Scream & Ghostface Collectors regarding the correlation between the mask and its tag.

From Timothy...

What tag did my un-tagged mask have?

An editorial on the history of the Randy Death Scene Mask and how tags really don't mean much to an un-tagged mask.

We have what I consider an annoying habit when it comes to collecting of trying to associate a tag to a particular mask we have that is un-tagged. And I am going to use the Randy Death Scene (RDS) and it's history to try and illustrate that.

The RDS came to be in 1996 once Fun World learned of a certain slasher flick that was in production using one of their masks that would end up being called 'Scream'. At the time Fun World already produced an assortment of 4 ghost masks which one of which was being used as the feature mask in the upcoming slasher flick. They that year realized there would soon be a massive uptick in the popularity of the mask…

Fantastic Faces: Know the Difference Between Gen 1s & 2s

Image
Our good friend Timothy DuFresne, who runs his own Scream group on Facebook (Scream & Ghostface Collectors), wrote up a nice post regarding the differences between the Gen 1 and Gen 2 Fantastic Faces masks which were used in the first movie.

The following is from Timothy...

Ok this is long over due here, hopefully this clears the air on the confusion that a lot of people are having especially when it comes to identifying what you may have when it comes to "1st Generation" and "2nd Generation" "Fantastic Faces" masks. People often message me asking me to identify a mask they have and have found, I've heard people talking about looking at the profiles of the mask or how the nose may be painted in identifying these masks. To start let me say that they are both very similar masks. It is mainly the size of the mask that tells the difference between the two. When the 2nd mold was created Fun World ordered their suppliers in China to replicate as closely…

Original Cut of Cursed Still Exists

Image
So the original cut of Cursed still exists. And according to one former Dimension Films exec, it needs to be released.
Cary Granat, who was COO of Dimension from 1995-2000, thinks the first cut of Cursed should be released. At this point, it’s a lost Wes Craven film begging for discovery.

“Yes, yes, yes, 100%,” Granat told us when we asked about the Craven cut of Cursed in a phone interview promoting his new movie, Welcome to Mercy.

Since Cursed came after Granat’s tenure at Dimension, he’s not sure where to find the original cut, only that it’s got to be somewhere.

“It still exists,” Granat said. “I just don’t know if it went with The Weinstein Company. I left in 2000 to start Walden so it was in development after that.” From BD.

Riverdale references Scream

Image
The CW's hit show Riverdale has turned in another classic horror nod -- this time an homage to Scream.
“There’s a lot of Scream in that one,” Ulrich acknowledged with a laugh during TVLine’s recent set visit. “Yeah, we were very aware of the Scream components… I mean, it’s impossible not to [be], to be honest. It’s so apparent what the source material was.” But Ulrich approved of the meta nod to his breakout role: “It was cool… I think, in a way, they took components of [Scream] and used it in an interesting way.” He went on to discuss how the window scene was done in Scream...
Shooting the scene did give Ulrich one very specific flashback to filming Scream: “When we shot that scene outside of Napa Valley [for Scream], it was a real house, and they had built this ledge onto the roof for me to squat down on and wait for the cue, and I climbed in. This one, I got to climb a real ladder… so our show’s better.” From: TV Line
