Hello, my fellow splatter lovers. I am excited to say, welcome to my new blog! As my first post on this site, I want to share a little about myself, and in the process, share some exciting news that I came across today.
As a 90’s kid, I grew up watching the Scream series. Admittedly, when I first started watching horror movies at the ripe young age of ten, I watched most of them behind a pillow, a tub of popcorn, or anything else that was handy. I made no exceptions for Scream either, which I guess would send me to the top of the list of the most unexpected horror bloggers in the history of ever. Yet, when I grew the balls to actually watch the movies at eighteen, I fell in love. Watching them quickly became a Halloween tradition, and at one point, a New Year’s Eve tradition. So, mark me as skeptical when I saw the Scream series pop up on my Netflix list. I added it to my que but never watched it, because in the back of my mind, how could a TV show hope to successfully continue one of the most successful slasher franchises?
Yeah, I was wrong.
When I first started watching, I thought I was in for another B-rated teenage murder show, especially with the opening scene (hands/claws/paws up if anyone disagrees?). But, as I got into the story, I was hooked. I loved the characters, some more than others, and the story was compelling, and quite frankly, extremely brutal. My only complaint was that some of the graphics with the death scenes were a little crappy, but I could overlook that for the sake of the story. It was all around original work and I enjoyed it so much that I watched the first season every chance I got, and I watched the second season in one sitting. After I finished it, I was dying to know when the third season was coming out, but STAB! Disappointment. MTV was questioning if the series would even be renewed for a third season. The only solace I had was the Halloween special, which is set to premiere on MTV on Tuesday, October 18 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.
And yet, another ray of light in this dark world of despair: I just found out from my fellow bloggers at BloodyDisgusting.com that Scream would be renewed for a third season. There will only be six episodes in the season, but still, that is much better than no episodes in the season.
So, until we learn more about this mysterious third season that is in the works, don’t say that you’ll be right back, but plant your ass down and watch this trailer for the Halloween Scream special instead.
