A teenage girl (Neve Campbell) becomes the target of a killer who has stalked and killed one of her classmates.

MTV's Scream series may not be using the iconic Ghostface Killer mask, but it will recreate one of the original Scream film's most remembered scenes. In 1996, it came as a shock to audiences when Drew Barrymore didn't make it past the opening act, as she was set up to be the star of the movie. She was dispensed rather quickly by the main slasher. Now, MTV has gotten another big star, and it's confirmed that this same opening act will be used once again to kickstart this small screen reboot.
The Scream TV series is debuting nearly twenty years after the original movie hit theaters. It will feature an all-new Ghostface Killer mask, and a plot that revolves around viral videos. It is not known if the killer in this new version of Scream is literally reenacting the same moments from the movie, or if this is a straight up remake that will not address or acknowledge the past films. We'll have to wait until 2015, when the series is set to air on MTV, to find out.Read More
