During production of Scream 4, Nightline visited Michigan and interviewed Wes Craven, capturing a lot of nice footage and factoids along the way. Scenes glimpsed include Neve Campbell and Hayden Panettiere hiding from the killer in a kitchen, and more of that daring rooftop chase. We noticed the clapboard listed Peter Deming who was director of photography for the last two films, responsible for the richly saturated color of the campus-bound Scream 2 and the cold hard edges of more urban Scream 3.
But we digress. Craven provides an insightful interview, as always, and is the picture of perfect calm and contentedness. We chuckled at their mention of Music Of The Heart (1999) as his last non-horror film – hey, no love for Red Eye (2005)? Anything but horror – that was such a sharp, contained thriller. An exclusive scene from My Soul To Take was a happy surprise and contextualizes the creepy giant bird thing seen in the trailer.
