SCREAM : Boobs, Blood, Boys
Yo! MTV. What’s going on? It’s been a long, long time since you and I sat down together. How’ve you been? Oh? Really? Yeah… I get it. I remember when you launched, I couldn’t peel myself away from you. I watched video after video late into the night. I loved music and television and when you came along, WOW! Knocked my socks off. You were amazing. So, what’s new?
MTV delving into the world of horror by means of a ‘teen soap’ direction. Why not marry two genres, it’s how Music Television was born right? Should be an easy formula: Boobs, blood, and boys. Um… no. After a dozen paragraphs of the reasons this show was disappointing I will instead simply say it didn’t do enough for me to register a single Great Cthulhu. The Old Ones will remain asleep.
I have a suggestion…
…Oh, you gave up on that.
0.5 of 5 Great Cthulhus and the only points are for the hard work by the talented people involved in the project and the marketing of the show. A for effort, D- for execution. All bad? Okay, the special effects and cinematography are fine.
Until next time remember it’s only horror, not a slap to the franchise’s face.
