One iconic killer ruled the 90s and early 2000s, forever changing the face of horror. We pay tribute to Ghostface and the Scream franchise.
Episode 38: SCREAM 2-4
In this episode, we return to Woodsboro to discuss films 2 – 4 of the iconic Scream franchise. We will be talking about the pivotal use and weaponization of the phone and technology as part of the Modus Operandi of Ghostface, and how the quest for notoriety makes Ghostface such an infamous horror villain of the 1990s.
The Scream franchise is a layered and diverse set of movies. From the intimacy of phone harassment to understanding the nature of the original story itself: Scream is based on true crime events. We lean hard into this in our discussion, along with the prevalence of whiteness throughout such a macabre genre.
We both agree that Jill, our Ghostface from Scream 4, is the most fascinating of all the killers thus far. Her desperation to be famous through victimization is the deepest cut, making her the most dangerous and scariest of them all.
Enjoy and welcome to our dark side…
