Okay, being a fan of the film series, I was going into this thinking this was going to be bad.. BUT! I was surprised, iv'e
found myself thinking of this as a re-imagining of the films
and they've put a "Friday the 13th" and "Pretty Little Liars" twist into it.
The NEW scream mask looks more FREAKY than the one in the films and the killer(s) seems to be more calculative than the ones in the films also.
You have your typical character placements.. such as the teen who knows everything about horror flicks and how the rules apply, the group of friends, the bitches, the loners, the drop dead gorgeous perfect skin toned girls AND GUYS! basically EVERYTHING what MTV caters for.
My view on episode 1 is it was pretty good but could have been better, and I also mean gorier, id rate it probably 7/10.. Let's just hope it gets better and just doesn't lose itself in the multiple stories it seems to have and leaves us all confused and HUH?
Just wrote all this.. and I just realized.. I should have just summed the whole show up as.. "A mix between "Friday the 13th" and "Pretty Little Liars" and given the "Scream" name.
I didn't think the concept was going to work as a tv show, but surprisingly enough it does. Because there is a longer period of time going by, the suspense gets higher. Who will be next is not as easy to answer as it is in the movies.
If you like high school drama with a little terror on the side, than this show is for you!
