New Scream Trailer: “Sounds Dead in There”

A darkly amusing new trailer has been released for Scream, MTV’s upcoming television series based on Wes Craven’s horror film franchise.

Emma Roberts and Jamie Lee Curtis are among the cast of this television reimagining, which tells of a string of murders that rocks Wallace University. MTV is calling it “part black comedy, part slasher flick”, and they’re certainly nailing that tone with the marketing so far.

MTV’s Scream, which also stars Bella Thorne, Jason Wiles, Bex Taylor-Klaus, and Willa Fitzgerald, will premiere on June 30 (U.S. date).

Official synopsis for Scream:

Wallace University is rocked by a string of murders. Kappa House, the most sought-after sorority for pledges, is ruled with an iron fist (in a pink glove) by its Queen Bitch, Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts). But when anti-Kappa Dean Cathy Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis) decrees that sorority pledging must be open to all students, and not just the school’s silver-spooned elite, all hell is about to break loose, as a devil-clad killer begins wreaking havoc, claiming one victim, one episode at a time. Part black comedy, part slasher flick, SCREAM QUEENS is a modern take on the classic whodunit, in which every character has a motive for murder… Or could easily be the next blood-soaked casualty.
