Will Red Right Hand Be Back?

One constant throughout the Scream series is Nick Cave’s eerie track Red Right Hand. We were introduced to it in Scream, Scream 2 got a remix version by DJ Spooky, before Cave provided an original rendition for Scream 3. Will the song be back for Scream 4? If so, here’s a probable contender.

Artic Monkeys performed a take on Red Right Hand last year which says goodbye to Cave’s brand of melancholy, bringing instead a modern rock rendition to the classic, seeming a natural fit with the generational approach to the new sequel.

Turn your speakers up. Loud. Then sound off below – should v.4 be part of the soundtrack, or should Red Right Hand be left exclusive to the original trilogy (and Cave’s own vocals)?

  1. I would much rather the original. There is nothing else quite like those eerie chimes and dramatic vocals. It HAS to be featured though, it wouldn’t be Scream without it.

    Fantastic website by the way, thank you!

  15. The original is so much better! Way more creppy. This one isn’t creepy at all. I could see it playing in the credits though.

  19. The original, of course. “Up to date” shouldn’t have to do with everything. More often than not, newer versions are always devoid of what made the original great and don’t have any impact. It may with new audiences simply because it’s new and “now”, but little with anything else. It’s about mood and tone. Don’t fix what isn’t broken.

  21. If anything I can see this playing during the closing credits kinda like how they played the rock version of “I Think I love You” at the end of Scream 2 :)

  23. I’d like to see Nick Cave’s versions during the film (either the original or the S3 version, or both) but I agree that this would be PERFECT for the closing picture credits. I can picture it already.

  31. NO WAY!!! get that crap out of here. I will not settle for anything less than Nick Cave’s Red Right Hand. This cover version is crappy.

  33. I’m disappointed by all the comments. Yes the original is awesome, but this would be perfect for the new one. Maybe not this one per say, but a remake by a different band would be perfect. Leave the original for the first 3.

    Know what song needs to return though? Trouble in Woodsboro.

  35. I definitely like this version, but it’s not very SCREAM-appropriate. I think Nick Cave’s vocals has to be there, along with the creepy music… it’s only perfect.
