‘Scream’: David Arquette reveals which movie of the franchise he liked least

In an interview with the Daily News, David Arquette, who played Dewey in the beloved “Scream” slasher franchise, revealed his least favorite film of the saga – and the surprise may not come as a surprise: “Scream 3”.

“We had to throw out the script at the start. They rewrote all the time. We have new pages every day. It was a total mess. It’s interesting and it’s funny, but it’s a different tone than the others.

He also revealed his favorite entry: “My favorite movie is the first because that’s where it all started and it was a surprise when audiences loved it. and work with [o diretor] we s [Craven] for the first time it was a dream come true ”.

Many fans and critics consider “Scream 3” to be the worst movie in the franchise, which only earned it 39% approval on Rotten Tomatoes.

It turns out that the fault may have been screenwriter Ehren Kruger, who was unfamiliar with the subject after taking over from Kevin Williamson.

During an interview with Bloody Disgusting, Williamson said he did not return to the franchise as he was busy developing the series based on the game “Wasteland”.

Asked what he had planned for the sequel, the filmmaker replied:

“In the draft I was developing for ‘Scream 3’ the Killers were basically a fan club of teenagers from Woodsboro who came together because of the ‘The Stab’ movies. The big surprise would come when Sidney walked into a house after Ghostface killed everyone there… and they all get up because it was a game planned by the kids.

He continued:

“The boys were planning all of this to get famous because they wanted to be the celebrities of Woodsbro, but they didn’t expect it to traumatize Sidney any more. I ended up using part of this idea in “Scream 4″ and [na série] ‘The following’.”

The first film in the franchise opened in 1996 and became an instant revolutionary classic that mixed elements of slasher horror with cinematic metalanguage. Directed by Wes Craven and scripted by Kevin Williamson, the plot focused on a masked serial killer known as Ghostface, who used slogans and haunting knowledge of genre productions to pursue his victims.

The 5th film in the “Scream” franchise has gained new behind-the-scenes footage and for the first time we get to see Ghostface.
