There are a few changes I have noticed during this pandemic of a year when it comes to my blog. First is that I am getting nowhere near the amount of screeners I would usually get. That isn't a bad thing at all as it has meant I can watch films of my own choosing. The second thing I've noticed this year is that I am getting a lot more news sent to my inbox, it has been so full these past few months that I am contemplating on splitting my usual monthly round-up blog post in half. If I could I would dedicate each item of news to its own post, but I just don't have the free time for that. If I ever win the lottery and can do my blog full time then that is the path I would take!
I didn't expect it, but it turns out a new Scream film is going to be made. Neve Campbell is going to be returning to the franchise to reprise her role as Sidney Prescott. The series has had a checkered past for me, I loved the first one, the second started good but fell apart, the third was ok, and the fourth completely forgettable. Also returning are David Arquette and Courtney Cox, new cast members include Jack Quaid (The Boys), Melissa Barrera (In The Heights), and Jenna Ortega (You). The film is due to release in January 2022. The film is to be directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett of the filmmaking group Radio Silence (Ready or Not, V/H/S) from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt (Zodiac, The Amazing Spider-Man).
Tri Coast Worldwide have acquired Sweet Taste of Souls. This is about four struggling band members who find themselves imprisoned in a deranged cafe owners art collection. I have a screener of this one, and so closer to Halloween I shall be checking this out to see if the film lives up to its crazed synopsis. Meanwhile, check out the trailer.
