Why ‘Scream 3’ Was Doomed From the Beginning [Horror Queers Podcast]

#KevinWilliamsonWouldNever

December wound up being pretty hectic between our festive entries in KrampusBetter Watch Out and Terror Train, but now that it’s January, it’s time to continue the tradition of ringing in the new year with an installment of the Scream franchise.

This time around it’s the complicated, challenging production that birthed Scream 3 (2000).

In the first entry in the Scream franchise written by someone other than Kevin Williamson, Sidney (Neve Campbell) is hiding out under an assumed named in the woods while Dewey (David Arquette) and Gale (Courteney Cox) become involved in a new string of murders plaguing the Hollywood set of Stab 3.

Along for the ride is MVP Parker Posey as Gale stand-in Jennifer Jolie, a baby faced Emily Mortimer, (a miscast?) Scott Foley, and Patrick Dempsey as a truly terrible red herring.

Wes Craven directs from a script by unorthodox choice Ehren Kruger.

Episode 107 – Scream 3 (2000)

The third year of the pod kicks off with our annual tradition: a Scream film! Scream 3 (2000) is arguably the least popular film in the franchise, but it’s due for a critical reappraisal as we unpack all of its challenges, including no script, an in-demand Neve Campbell, post-Columbine timing, a move to comedic Hollywood and studio interference (the Weinsteins again!)

Thankfully we have Parker Posey, Patrick Dempsey’s luscious hair, an ambitious – if misguided – attempt to retcon the root of all of Sid’s trauma and a post #MeToo reckoning that makes the film quite prescient.

For a good time, throw in a game of toot it or boot it, Trace’s confusion over the expression “Red Shirts”, and a Meryl Streep blaxploitation film. Plus: how many times will we say the words Scooby-Doo? Welcome to our third year!


Cross out Scream 3!

Coming up on Wednesday: Our month of 3s continues as we stick around the 90s for the wacky, over the top action of Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth (1992)!

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
