'Scream 4' trailer: I scream, you scream, everyone in the cast screams

The Scream 4 trailer that debuted at the Scream Awards was appropriately scream-filled. (Watch it below courtesy of an attendee.) But was it actually scary? For me, the most chilling scene from any of the Scream movies is still the franchise opener of Drew Barrymore on the telephone, when she’s unable to yell out to her parents as they come home. That’s what horrifying — not her mother screaming when she finally sees her daughter hanging from a tree, stabbed multiple times. Building that kind of stomach-turning suspense takes time that a trailer (at least one debuting at the Scream Awards) won’t allow. But that’s the kind of clip I can’t wait to see. During daylight hours. Which is when I’ve seen all the Scream films.

For more on Scream 4, check out EW’s Reunions issue, on stands now. As director Wes Craven says promisingly, “The first [Scream] was very much observing where horror had been for the last 10 to 20 years. And this is very much looking at where horror has been for the last 10 years. There’s always somebody trying to figure out what the rules are to keep from getting killed.”

    the only thing that could be better than this, is to have a proper HD version of the trailer.

  • Josh

    It’s finally here! I can’t wait to see my first Scream movie in theaters!

  • Mr. Holloway

    I know it’s just a teaser, but I would’ve liked to have seen at least a hint of the franchise’s humor or self-awareness.

    Other than the presence of Campbell, Arquette, Cox and Ghostface, this looks like it could be ANY horror movie.

  • Kris

    I was 5 when the first Scream came out so I didn’t see it in theatres (but I did see it when my brother got it on VHS that year) but I’ve seen 2/3 in theatres and can’t wait to continue the trend. Kristen Bell, Shenae Grimes, Lucy Hale, Anna Paquin… it’s like someone really wants me to see this film.

    • I know!

      I was happy to see Shanae Grimes in the trailer too! I had no idea she was doing this! I was eight when I saw my first horror film and I saw it in the theatre – it was ‘Scream’. The trailer ramped up my desire to see this thing exponentially. CAN. NOT. WAIT.

      Are all those people in it?

  • Hmmmm

    Definitely a Redbox rental.

  • Jason

    Why is that video titled “leaked?” If it appeared before it a movie that’s not leaking. That’s controlled by the studio, right?

    • Channing

      It actually premiered at the Spike Scream Awards a couple nights ago. It’s “leaked” in the sense that this is a bootleg recording of something that hasn’t been released to the public at large. (The awards show — and this trailer — don’t air on Spike until this weekend, I believe.)

    • Jerry

      The guy who recorded this video leaked it out onto the Internet. The trailer isn’t supposed to debut until tomorrow (Tuesday) during the awards show. So, it is leaked.

    They better not kill Gale Weathers.

    • Eden

      I know I love Gale Weathers, but I would be shocked if one of the original three did not die this time.

      • Flip

        Probably Dewey. He’s the most expendable.

  • Eden

    Am I the only one who does not like Emma Roberts?

    • Vicky

      There’s something about her eyes that I don’t like….

  • khm

    Forget Gale. I will be devastated if they kill Sidney!

    • Flip


  • Oh no

    We really don’t need a 4th film. The first 3 were predictable enough. NONE of them are scary. If you want to see a scary movie watch a classic like the Exorcist. That will haunt your dreams.

    • Trey

      The Exorcist was far from scary.

    • nOoLiO

      anything supernatural or paranormal doesn’t scare me…the idea that someone you know is plotting to kill you…THATs scary

    • Aaron

      ha did you see the opening scene to the 1st one? horror at it fullest

  • Caro

    That trailer looks sooo exciting. I am looking forward to see this movie…

  • JPX

    Meh. The reality is that the original Scream no longer holds up and the two sequels that followed are unwatchable. This looks like more of the same and already seems outdated.

    • xandercrews

      I just saw the original Scream for the first time last week and I thought it was fantastic, so imo it definitly holds up

  • :D

    I just can’t wait!!!
