Ryan Turek Talks Still Screaming

Rue Morgue‘s have conducted a short but illuminating interview with Ryan Turek, writer/director of Still Screaming: The Ultimate Scary Movie Retrospective.

What was the response like from those involved in the series? Were they eager to talk about their experiences on the films?
So far, they’ve been terrific. The biggest hurdle was ensuring Dimension Films was cool with the project. Anthony and I flew out to New York, while we were doing a few interviews out there, and met with Bob Weinstein. He understood what we were doing, got it and gave his blessing. Once that happened, we started reaching out to everyone involved in the three films, and I mean, everyone. I won’t say it has been easy locking everyone down. Everyone involved in the trilogy still works and they have incredibly busy schedules, but we’ve been very successful getting who we want. I was thrilled that Wes Craven made time during his post-production schedule on Scream 4 to talk with us. On one hand, most of our interviewees are amazed a retrospective is being done because maybe they feel it may be “too soon,” however, it only takes them a few minutes to realize we’re approaching the 15th anniversary of the first film’s release.

Turek’s other project, Unearthed: The Hellraiser Saga is also touched on. Read the full interview here: Sinister Seven: All about the Scream documentary Still Screaming

  1. I’m glad they are reaching out to all the actors involved, but I hope they spend a sizable amount with Neve and Courteney. They are the two main characters in all three films.

  2. I am dying to see this! I wonder if they talked to Jada Pinkett-Smith.

  3. And Dewey?

    I too am so happy about this!

    What’s hilarious is that they’re gonna have to make a sequel to this documentary!!

  5. I hope they interview Parker Posey (Scream 3) and Sarah Michelle Gellar (Scream 2)

  6. Gawd, I hope this is more “Never Sleep Again” than “His Name is Jason”.

  7. I am so excited to see this! I own “Never Sleep Again” and I wouldn’t give it up for the world! I hope they can do something similar for ScreaM. This was the movie that got me into horror movies, and made me want to go to film school, so my beloved ScreaM holds a special place in my heart. I hope that I can find this on DVD, and not just on the Bio channel… Which I don’t get… Bad times… Missed the “His Name is Jason”, but if it’s the same crew as “Never Sleep Again” I feel confident it will be good. Like Francisco said, I hope they got SMG to do this. As a huge Buffy fan at the time it was kind of weird to see my favorite slayer play a damsel in distress. Mad, mad love for Scream. I don’t think anyone but my gf really understands the love I have for this series. One day… When I am rich and rich I will own a screen used robe. Until then… Thank you guys!!!
