Mutiny, death and philosophy on the high seas in this two-part made-for-TV adaptation of Jack London’s 1906 novel The Sea Wolf. Helped by an impressive cast and a faithful transposition of the original text’s deeply psychological and political themes, Sea Wolf is a bloody and tense maritime drama that delivers a lot more than you’d expect from the average period adaptation.
Director Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson bring together a cast of new and returning faces for one more stab at the post-modern Scream franchise. With an abundance of recent horror history ripe for the picking, they succeed beautifully in rebooting the formula while staying true to the mission statement that started it all.
A new batch of images tease the horror movie event of 2011.
With the fourth installment in Wes Craven’s Scream saga due next year, it seemed that this franchise – like its protagonist, Sidney Prescott – would not be one easily killed off. And now it appears that its life has been prolonged even more, with the director openly admitting that screenwriter, Kevin Williamson, launched this latest film with a second trilogy in mind.
There’s nothing like new blood to pump some life into a dying franchise, and no-one knows that better than the people over at Dimension Films. To brighten up the tired old Scream series director Wes Craven is hiring a lot of nubile young things to murder in colourful ways. So who’s on board?
