Celebrating 15 years in horror, the Scream franchise has a brand new film, Scream 4 – hitting theaters April 15th – as well as the Scream trilogy arriving on Blu-ray Disc for the first time ever!  Horror fans will scream like never before as Lionsgate debuts Miramax’s ScreamScream 2 and Scream 3 in 1080P High Definition and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. From the master of horror, Wes Craven (A Nightmare on Elm Street), these horror fan favorites feature an all-star cast of victims including Courteney Cox (TV’s “Cougar Town”), Jada Pinkett Smith (Collateral), Liev Schreiber (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and Neve Campbell (Wild Things).  The first three films of the series will be available on Blu-ray Disc andwill include an array of behind the scenes featurettes, audio commentaries by Craven and deleted scenes.


After a series of mysterious deaths befalls their small town, an offbeat group of friends led by Sydney Prescott (Campbell) become the target of a masked killer in this smash-hit “clever thriller” (The Washington Post) that launched the Scream franchise and breathed new life into the horror genre.  The Blu-ray Disc features audio commentary, a production featurette, behind the scenes footage, a Q&A with cast and crew plus the theatrical trailer.

Scream 2

Away at college, Sidney Prescott (Campbell) thought she’d finally put the shocking murders that shattered her life behind her… until a copycat killer begins acting out a real-life sequel. Now as history repeats itself, ambitious reporter Gale Weathers (Cox), deputy Dewey (Arquette) and other Scream survivors find themselves trapped in a terrifyingly clever plotline where no one is safe – or beyond suspicion – in this “delicious, diabolical and fun” (Rolling Stone) sequel.  The Blu-ray Disc features include audio commentary, deleted scenes with optional audio commentary, outtakes, a featurette and the theatrical trailer.

Scream 3

While Sidney Prescott (Campbell) lives in safely guarded seclusion, bodies begin dropping around the Hollywood set of Stab 3, the latest movie based on the gruesome Woodsboro killings.  The escalating terror finally brings Sidney out of hiding, drawing her and the other survivors once again into an insidious game of horror movie mayhem that’s a “suspenseful, clever and very entertaining” (NBC-TV) installment in the wildly popular Scream franchise. The Blu-ray Disc features include audio commentary, deleted scenes and an alternate ending, outtakes, behind the scenes footage and the theatrical trailer.

    I can’t wait the Scream series was good. Not sure how they are going to make another successful movie in the series though.

  2. Tina

    Wonderful! I love the Scream series and can watch them over and over. Hopefully the success continues with number 4.

  3. Aaron Neuwirth

    There are 2 really good movies here. Given that Wes Craven made the worst movie of last year, I’m kinda skeptical about 4, hopefully the script is decent enough.

  4. Gerard Iribe

    I’ll only get the first film if it’s the UNRATED cut. 2 & 3 were garbage.

  5. Aaron Neuwirth

    I like 2. It has a lot of fun with the “rules” and is crazy violent. Plus, David Arquette getting stabbed a lot is kinda amusing.

    well i’m excited for scream 1, it’s a cult classic and i love almost anything that fellow Clevelander Wes Craven does. However, I understand having to make the sequel after the success of the first but the third movie is epitome of jumping the shark. I will be buying the first movie forgetting the other two exist and hoping for the best this april.

    Scream’s not really a cult classic. It was a film that was very successful both critically and commercially, and pretty much reinvigorated a specific type of the horror genre, while also introducing a satirical element. Basically, it was an incredibly popular film that led to many imitators and approaches the status of modern classic more than anything. That being said, I’d like to shoot the third movie in the face. 🙂

    I love the Scream movies!! Maybe the 2nd and third were not the greatest – in fact, i think i like the third one simply because Patrick Dempsey (McDreamy) was in it – but they were still great entertainment. I am also a little skeptical of Scream 4 coming out, but I will still see it just to see what kind of storyline they have come up with.

    ok I stand by my statement that scream is a cult classic #1 it was made with a specific horror demographic in mind “slasher film” & I guess general horror film fans in general. However, specific to the genre scream makes numerous references to other great slasher films such as halloween, the exorcist, and psycho. #2 scream was not made with some ridiculous budget to attract the mindless drones of movies goes who don’t know whats good unless there beat over the head with it. In fact, go back and look, Scream pretty much put dimension films on the map. #3 If Scream got any commercial proclaim other than what its self inflected greatness brought on itself it was due to Wes Cravens success with “A Nightmare on Elm Street”. Don’t think that this was not a low budget well written movie that was marketed for a pre-existing genre just because it made a lot of money at the box office. It that was the case then forget about spinal tap, from dusk to dawn, the goonies, clerks, Halloween, Evil dead and should I go on or have you stopped reading because i’ve discredited your arguments.

    Here we go…

    Your points:

    #1 – Not sure how Scream being a certain genre and referencing other films qualifies it as a cult film.

    #2 – Scream being low budget, but still successful doesn’t qualify it as a cult film. A huge staple of cult films are the fact that they are films that generally flopped at the box office and were near completely looked over by audiences during its initial release. Scream nearly made $200 Million and is one of the most successful horror franchises around.

    #3 – This last thought seems kind of cluttered, but you seem to be trying to put Scream in the same category as these others, as they are all Cult movies, well regarded for their quality. The difference is (besides Halloween, which shares a similar position) Scream is hugely popular to a massive audience. It is no obscure film that few recognize. Everyone recognizes the Scream brand; the mask, the signature phone call-type scenes; little kids wear Scream masks for Halloween costumes.

    Cult films are films that are treated as such after the fact. They have very specific fans and were met with little fame at the time of their release, only to grow overtime. Scream was an instant success, that received many accolades from audiences and critics alike.

    Sean’s favorite movie: Troll 2 😉 – perfect example of a cult film.
