Series: • Director: ,

Your Film Board host Ocean Murff is joined by Tommy Metz III to discuss the latest in the ‘Scream’ francise – and most oddly named of the whole bunch – ‘Scream,’ which is really ‘Scream 5.’ But in a franchise that’s full of meta conversations about the nature of the genre, including naming conventions, is that just all a part of the joke? Tune in to get Ocean’s and Tommy’s thoughts on the movie and how it fits into the franchise!

“There are certain rules to surviving.”

It’s time to Scream again!

Ocean Murff is joined by our very own Tommy Metz III to discuss the fifth film in the Scream franchise, Scream. But why isn’t it called Scream 5? Is that part of the meta-nature of the film? What do Tommy and Ocean think about the return of Dewey, Gale, and Sidney in their inevitable return? What about that first kill, something that’s been such a key part of the franchise? Or the final reveal of the actual killer? Or killers? This is the Scream franchise after all.

The killings are more violent. The meta jokes are constant. Does it all work? Tune in to this Film Board episode to hear Ocean’s and Tommy’s fun and funny conversation about Matt Bettinelli-Olpin’s and Tyler Gillett’s entry into Wes Craven’s franchise that broke the mold, Scream.
