TRAILER: ‘Scream’

by Jordan McGuire on June 9, 2015

This trailer highlights decapitation, creepy social media type footage, high school parties and inevitable death. John Karna is featured again in the most recent trailer for the Baton Rouge-shot Scream tv series. Karna plays Noah, a nerdy comic relief character who was once the best friend of a cyber-bullied girl. In the recent trailers his clever one liners have had somewhat of a bubbly feeling. Now, Karna says, “By the time the first body is found, it’s only a matter of time before the bloodbath commences.” The slapstick horror theme is not present in this trailer.

The students of Lakewood are troubled once again. The lives of the rich and glamorous are threatened when cyberbullying goes over the line. After a series of murders in the small town, citizens attempt to band together to unlock the secrets from the town’s dark past. We also see a glimpse of Carlson Young, who plays Brooke. Her lights refuse to turn on in the garage and she walks along the line of Porches to her untimely doom? We will have to wait until June 30 to find out.

Scream‘s growing cast includes Bryan Batt, Bella Thorne, Willa Fitzgerald, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Carlson Young, Amadeus Serafini, John Karna, Connor Weil, Tracy Middendorf and Jason Wiles. Bob and Harvey Weinstein will act as executive producers along with Wes Craven and multiple others. Scream will come into your homes on June 30 on MTV. Check out past trailers here.

TRAILER: New MTV’s ‘Scream’

by Jordan McGuire on May 12, 2015

It would seem this party was so awesome kids were just dying to get in. The upcoming MTV horror series is shot in Baton Rouge and has blood, babes and laughs. Scream will have audiences tuning in every week to see their favorite characters getting the axe.

The trailer begins with a close-up shot of a girl sitting in a chair. The camera pulls back revealing her blood soaked slit throat. We continue around the room to see dead bodies displayed in an almost artistic form. The camera pulls back again unveiling the entire room showing ten dead bodies when the doorbell rings. The main Scream cast is seen standing in front of the door as Noah says, “It sounds dead in there.”

Newly added cast member Bryan Batt will play alongside Bella Thorne (The Duff), Willa Fitzgerald (Royal Pains), Bex Taylor-Klaus (Arrow), John Karna (Premature) and Carlson Young (Key and Peele).

Watch the previous Scream trailers here. Mark your calendars for June 30 at 10pm. Maybe you will throw the next killer party.

The official story description below:

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 who’s out for blood.

New Orleans’ own Bryan Batt will call Baton Rouge home while on the set of MTV’s Scream. Batt is known for his role on AMC’s hit television series Mad Men. Batt famously played Salvatore Romano, the art director at Sterling Cooper. His time away from Mad Men has been fruitful. You can see him in 12 Years a Slave and he has also written two novels.

The show will star Bella Thorne (The Duff), Willa Fitzgerald (Royal Pains), Bex Taylor-Klaus (Arrow), John Karna (Premature) and Carlson Young (Key and Peele). Willa Fitzgerald’s character is the popular teenager Emma Duvall. Taylor-Klaus will play preacher’s daughter Aubrey Jensen. John Karna will play Noah Foster, the logistical student. The beautiful Carlson Young will play the adorable mastermind Brooke Maddox.

In Scream, Batt will play Quinn Maddox, the town’s mayor and father of Carlson Young’s Brooke Maddox. Bryan Batt knows that no one is safe in this slasher series. “I hope I don’t die the first season, but it is a slasher series,” he says. “Some people have already gone.” At least Batt has a great attitude and has high hopes for a future demise. “I hope it’s bloody, gory and memorable,” he says.

TRAILER: New MTV Series ‘Scream,’ Shot in Baton Rouge

by Jordan McGuire on April 22, 2015

MTV unveiled their new Scream logo and then the initial teaser trailer during the MTV Movie Awards. Now we get the chance to see the nearly satirical trailer for MTV’s newest horror series Scream.

First of all, the narrator absolutely dominates the stereotypical horror trailer montage. The tone of this trailer screams comedy (pun totally intended). The way to write the storyline of a horror film most always begins in a small little town with omonous tones pattering in the background. The cast must include young attractive women who are always peering over their shoulders to see where that mysterious passing shadow is lurking.

“But what if it’s not a movie. What if instead of 90 minutes of guts and gore it’s ten hours,” says the narrator. The fact is, it won’t be 90 minutes, it’ll be an entire season of guts, gore and shocking murders that will keep us tuning in to see who’s life will be taken next.

Baton Rouge-Shot ‘Scream’ Unveils New Logo

by Jordan McGuire on April 10, 2015

scream-logo-web

MTV unveiled their new Scream logo. Scream is a Baton Rouge-shot television series that will be filled with murders, comedy, horror and teenage angst. During Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards, the first full trailer of Scream will be released.

The show will star Bella Thorne (The Duff), Willa Fitzgerald (Royal Pains), Bex Taylor-Klaus (Arrow), John Karna (Premature) and Carlson Young (Key and Peele). Willa Fitzgerald’s character is the popular teenager Emma Duvall. Bex Taylor-Klaus will play a preacher’s daughter Aubrey Jensen. John Karna will play Noah Foster, the logistical student. The beautiful Carlson Young will play the adorable mastermind Brooke Maddox.

John Karna and Carlson Young will re-team as the two starred together in Premature. Carlson Young also played the infamous J-Quellan on the Key and Peele skit “Substitute Teacher.” I wonder if she’ll be on the call sheet when they make that into a feature film? But with her comedic background, MTV’s Scream has great potential to provoke some laughs. Watch the Key and Peele skit below:
