These are the films that launched careers, pushed social boundaries and defined generations. Meet the stars, the crew and those on the inside that unveil all the secrets behind some of the most p p popular films of all time. This week’s film INSIDE STORY is SCREAM, followed weekly with films such as ANIMAL HOUSE, NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET and SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER.
In 1996, director Wes Craven unleashed SCREAM, a slasher flick that shattered box-office records for horror films and turned Craven and some hot young actors (Neve Campbell, Skeet Ulrich, and Rose McGowan) into overnight stars. In this two-hour special, we go inside the SCREAM story with all-new exclusive interviews with cast and crew.
Viewers will learn that Craven originally didn’t want to direct the film, the production had to survive delays and objections to its violent content, and industry analysts predicted it would be bomb at the box office. But SCREAM became a blockbuster and single-handedly revived the horror genre.
