Movie News: Ghostface Racks Up The Anticipation!

Right, that's it. I can completely understand how my enthusiastic, often psychotic, behaviour towards the franchise can annoy, but can you blame me with a trailer (BELOW, EEK!) as hilariously entertaining as this? And, as of yesterday, the brand spanking new poster (ABOVE!) that continues the tradition of the previous entries?

Whether or not you find Ghostface scary, whether you give two shits about Sidney, Gale or Dewey or whether you simply want to see Hayden Pantene-Pro V fall victim to Ghosty's knife-happy activities, there's bound to be something in this new chapter that ignites intrigue.

As a die hard fan of the franchise, my heart skips multiple beats at the thought of April 15th being a mere 73 days (please, don't judge) away, therefore you'll also understand my clearly apparent (if you follow my Twitter, it'll appear even more clear) addiction. To list a couple of positivities in regards to the second trailer to Wes Craven's newest addition is difficult, but if i must, i will:

1) DEWEY. GALE. And, of course, SID! They're all back and look as glamorous, as gorgeous and as young as ever. Hopefully -- and my fingers are truly crossed with this one -- they'll maintain their same vigorous attitudes that made them so explosively fun to watch back in the 90's.

2) Hot new cast. Emma Roberts, Hayden Panettiere, Nico Tortorella, Rory Culkin, Adam Brody, Marley Shelton and cameos by Kristen Bell and Anna Paquin. Clearly the film is owned by bodacious babes, but that doesn't necessarily pinpoint it as a purely male-based target audience. Well, females enjoy blood don't they? Only the cool ones.

3) While it's most probably cut down to a miniscule second in the film, Hayden's panicked answer when speaking to Ghostface him/herself is genius and, i hope, is a heavy hint of how spot-on Kevin Williamson's writing is for the fourth chapter. Keep your toes crossed!

Read below for the official synopsis of Scream 4;

"In theaters April 15, Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), now the author of a self-help book, returns home to Woodsboro on the last stop of her book tour. There she reconnects with Sheriff Dewey (David Arquette) and Gale (Courtney Cox), who are now married, as well as her cousin Jill (Emma Roberts) and her Aunt Kate (Mary McDonnell). Unfortunately Sidney’s appearance also brings about the return of Ghostface, putting Sidney, Gale, and Dewey, along with Jill, her friends, and the whole town of Woodsboro in danger."

New Decade, New Rules. The tagline for one of my most anticipated films of '11. If all lives up to the hype, i'll be one very, very happy horror fan.
