    BEVERLY HILLS, CA – Anchor Bay Entertainment and Dimension Films announced today that the Blu-ray™/DVD Combo Pack and DVD release of the latest installment in the acclaimed horror franchise, SCREAM 4, is heading to retail on October 4, 2011. Directed by the incomparable Wes Craven, SCREAM 4 features an ensemble cast that includes the film’s original cast plus new stars – David Arquette, Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, Emma Roberts, Hayden Panettiere, Anthony Anderson, Adam Brody, Rory Culkin, Marielle Jaffe, Mary McDonnell, Marley Shelton, Nico Tortorella, Lucy Hale, Shenae Grimes, Aimee Teegarden, and Brittany Robertson. SCREAM 4 is available for an SRP of $39.99 for the Blu-ray™/DVD Combo Pack (which includes a Blu-ray™, a DVD, and a code for the Digital eCopy) and $29.98 for the standard definition DVD.



    Here’s what the critics have to say about SCREAM 4: “Pure genius.” (Richard Roeper, RichardRoeper.com) “The Best ‘Scream’ since the original! Funny, clever and scary as hell.” (Dan Jewel, Life & Style Weekly) “Full of surprises!” (Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald)



    Directed by suspense master and director of the first trilogy, Wes Craven, SCREAM 4 is the newest installment in the acclaimed franchise that ushered in a new wave of horror in the 1990s. In SCREAM 4, Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), now the author of a self-help book, returns home to Woodsboro on the last stop of her book tour. There she reconnects with Sheriff Dewey (David Arquette) and Gale (Courteney Cox), who are now married, as well as her cousin Jill (Emma Roberts). Unfortunately Sidney’s appearance also brings about the return of Ghost Face, putting Sidney, Gale, and Dewey, along with Jill, her friends (Hayden Panettiere, Rory Culkin) and the whole town of Woodsboro in danger.


    The SCREAM 4 Blu-ray™/DVD Combo Pack and DVD bonus features include a “The Making of Scream 4” featurette; an Alternate Opening; an Extended Ending; Deleted and Extended Scenes; and a Gag Reel. Note: Special features are subject to change.

    I'm curious to know what the alternate opening is like; I really hated the existing one. I enjoyed the film overall, though, and will probably pick it up on Blu-ray if the price is right.

    My guess is that the alternate opening's differences are with the two girls in the 'real world' rather than altering the the movie-inside-a-movie jokes. A few weeks ago on Twitter, Wes Craven said he was recording a commentary (along with Campbell, Roberts and Panettiere) so I expect that to be on here as well.

    Amen. It was overlong, entirely too self-indulgent and hideously boring. Like you, though, I'll prolly pick this up for the right price. I mean, I have the other three on the shelf and I can't have an incomplete set...

    Eh, maybe the opening had one 'movie' too many but I thought it was pretty good.
