The FBI estimates there are currently over 300 active serial killers in the United States. What would happen if these killers had a way of communicating and connecting with each other? What if they were able to work together and form alliances across the country? What if one brilliant psychotic serial killer was able to bring them all together and activate a following? Written by
In a recent interview, Kevin Williamson revealed that one of the first ideas for this show was in his draft for Scream 3 (2000), the one movie of the franchise that he ended up not writing. The idea was that Sidney Prescott would arrive to a house to find a group of murdered people, implying that she was too late to save them. The twist would have been that at one moment, they would all start getting up, alive, and it would be revealed that they were all part of a cult following, "Ghostface." See more »
The writing was good creating tension and setting the scene for
following episodes. The play between Kevin Bacon's character as the
flawed former FBI agent and James Purefoy as the serial killer is
excellent. Purefoy's character is both frightening and compelling
fleshing out a complex character that plays well against Kevin Bacon's
powerful portrayal as the former FBI agent. Good first start. Similar
to the FBI character in The Red Dragon, Bacon is struggling to come to
terms with his experience with the killer. The supporting characters
are also very good and there are enough twists and turns to satisfy
most of those who like thrillers. The one flaw is that in a one hours
time limit the end became a bit predictable. However, this is
forgivable because of the quality of the writing. It leaves enough
hanging to compel me to watch the next episode.
