The opening of the original Scream (1996) with Drew Barrymore on the phone with Ghostface is one of the most iconic scenes in horror-movie history. Now MTV has released the first eight minutes of the opening of its series adaptation of the venerable film franchise with Bella Thorne. Watch the new clip above and the original opening scene with Barrymore at the bottom of the post.
Based on the hit horror franchise, Scream follows the aftermath of a cyber-bullying incident that leads to murder, connecting a group of teenagers to a past killing spree that may have inspired a copycat. Cast features Bex Taylor-Klaus, John Karna, Willa Fitzgerald, Jason Wiles, Carlson Young, Amadeus Serafini and Connor Wile.
Scream premieres at 10 PM Tuesday, June 30, on MTV. Compare the two opening scenes and tell us what you think.
