Scream-Trilogy contributor Scott Kessinger is putting the finishing touches on his book, Scream Deconstructed: An Unauthorized Analysis. He’s aiming to have this available for purchase online by the end of October. It’s a critical review/analysis of all four Scream flicks in the vein of the two articles he has written for us.
Below is the offical blurb that will go on the back of the book, and a preliminary cover:
Someone’s taken their love of Scream one step too far… and written a book about it!
Having earned the respect and accolades of critics and audiences, generated more than half a billion dollars in revenue, and inspired a gaggle of imitators, it’s safe to say Scream is millions of people’s favorite scary movie. While the Scream films have scared and entertained moviegoers worldwide, they’ve also invited us to closer examine the movies we watch: to deconstruct them. This book aims to do just that.
Scream Deconstructed: An Unauthorized Analysis puts all four Scream movies under the knife to examine the meaning, themes and philosophy of the movie series that brought horror back from the dead by breaking all the rules. Take a close look into the heart of this pop culture phenomenon and what its characters – including Sidney, Gale, Dewey, and each film’s killer – represent. Find out what reality, film, fantasy, and sex have to do with it all. Scream Deconstructed is sure to please any fan of Scream, horror, or film in general.
