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.

Scream stars Bella Thorne, Willa Fitzgerald, Bex Taylor-Klaus, John Karna and Carlson Young. Wes Craven’s slasher dynasty will take on the screens in your living room opposed to the box office. Directed by Jamie Travis, Scream comes into your homes on Tuesday, June 30 at 10pm.

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.
