It All Began With A Scream – Padraic Maroney

With the 25th anniversary screening of the original Scream happening tomorrow (so excited to actually see it in theaters and then see the exclusive debut of the Scream 2022 trailer!) I figured this was the perfect time to read this one. Found it thanks to a friend on Instagram and ordered it immediately

IT ALL BEGAN WITH A SCREAM – Padraic Maroney (Released August 24th, 2021)

I’m just going to say this is 5/5 stars for me! If you’re a fan of the franchise (the first four movies) then you’ll love this. If you’re a movie buff or horror lover then this will be a fun one to pick up. Short and sweet review because it’s one to be experienced.

Book Description:

In 1996, a movie came along that changed the face of horror films forever. Initial signs indicated Scream being a flop upon its release in theaters, but it quickly became a word-of-mouth phenomenon spawning multiple sequels, a television series, and countless imitators.

Twenty-five years later, the impact of Scream is still being felt in films and pop culture. For the first time, get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of what it took to make the beloved films–from the people who were there.

With 30 interviews from cast and crew members, It All Began with a Scream provides readers with an unauthorized look at the franchise. From a bidding war for the original script and studio meddling to on-set romances, script leaks, lawsuits, and a beloved director who created a family atmosphere for everyone on his set, find out the story behind Scream.

It All Began with a Scream is a must-read for horror aficionados, film buffs, and anyone fascinated by Hollywood
