Scream fans love the stalk-and-slash killings of ghostface, but will that swift dispatch be so popular if it puts the kibosh on the franchise?
In a recent interview at the Zurich Film Festival, Harvey Weinstein slammed Scream 4 for being too namby-pamby about killing off the cast. He’s determined to persuade his brother (and head of Dimension Films) Bob Weinstein to bring buckets of blood to Scream 5:
Everyone lived in ‘Scream 4’. I’m begging him to do the movie and just end it. We’ve milked that cow.
Even though I love the Scream movies to death, I have to say that I agree with Weinstein. Scream 4 was great fun for a few laughs at the movie theater, but it’ll be hard to wring any more thrills from the series without some major main-cast deaths.
What do you think, horror fans? Was four too many, or should Sidney, Dewey and Gale battle it out against legions of ghostfaces forever?
NO! Leave them be!
Kill off the main characters in 'Scream 5'?
