Scream 3 Alternate Dead Maureen Reveal

Alright, so let’s get down to business: in Scream 3 it was no surprise to discover in the climax at Milton’s mansion that the bloodied-sheet ghost of Maureen Prescott wasn’t Sidney’s mom back from the dead or a hallucination, but Ghostface himself playing mindgames. A collective “duh”.

But of minor historical note, the creative team had played with the notion of setting the revelation to happen much sooner in the film – namely on the Stab 3 set when Sid first sees the bloody seeming-apparition in her mother’s room. A shot was filmed of the sheet coming off in this scene instead, and this is the shot.

We’d wager it would’ve been a smarter move to keep it this way and quickly dismiss the notion of Sidney Going Insane since it was an underdeveloped subplot – one that frankly didn’t ring true in the reality-based verse of Scream.

But now you know. And knowing is half the battle.

  1. I have to agree that this would have been the better time to reveal. I think for a split second people watching the ending of Scream 3 thought about the possibility of the mom. However, common sense does creep in, for most people, right away!

  3. I really haven’t given this idea much thought until now. To be quite honest I don’t think this idea should have been explored at all. I mean we all know she’s dead, so their is no way she’d be alive at the middle of the film or the end. It might have been better to just go another way and stay away from this scene. Since it is indeed included, I do seem to agree that placing this scene in the middle as intended would work out better. The insanity thing was a poorly executed plot device anyway.

  5. really, this would have made so much more sense then the audience left to believe it was the beginning of sids mental breakdown. still that doesn’t answer why they would have the awful dream sequence in the first part of the movie, it wasn’t a narrative device used in the first two and i personally hated it.

  6. ugh, everything about scream 3 was done wrong.

  8. I liked that subplot. It felt like a natural progression of Sidney’s character, for her to possibly go crazy having Ghostface go after her YET AGAIN! I loved that Ghostface kept tormenting her with her mother’s death. Say what you will about “Scream 3″; I personally thought it was wonderfully paced and fun. Maybe not scary (except for the Sidney chase on the set of “Stab 3,” which was terrifying) but still fun and watchable. I’ve seen it more than the other Screams.

  9. No, not at all.

  10. I agree. 100%, except I’d say Maureen in the window was the scariest part of the series so far. I think the first is the scariest overall, the second had the most suspenseful scene (the police car where Sid has to climb over the killer to get out), and the third had the scariest moment.

  11. The reason I think they added the subplot of Sid’s possible insanity is that at one point in talks b4 scream 3, Neve campbell said the only way she’d come back after scream 3 is if her character was in an insane asylum. I’m glad they didn’t decide to go with it mainly bc it would have major conflict with Scream 3’s acutal ending.

  12. Ive gotta say, im pretty impressed on how they made the SCREAM series but Im a little bit disappointed cause the SCREAM films doesnt show née Roberts aka Maureen Prescott being killed nor flash backs of her being killed and Nev Campbell aka Sidney prescott witnessing her mothers death in the movie, I LOVE the SCREAM franchise but Im just bumbed cause I REALLY wanna see either another movie of SCREAM with flash backs or if there was another movie before the very first SCREAM that shows née Roberts being killed like on the Stab frenchise or a Movie that shows née Roberts being killed

    will somebody PLEASE email me some information that shows née Roberts death if you know anything that shows it? cause Im Fuckin clueless !!!!!!

    thanks
