Episode 31: Scream

This week we leap to our first horror movie through composer Marco Beltrami who also worked on Live Free or Die Hard. This is our first horror film of the podcast and one of Scott’s favourites. A lot to talk about with this film, which was a big deal in 1996 when it was released, rejuvenating the horror genre. Does it hold up? We discuss this and more this episode and hope you enjoy.

Season 2, Episode 4

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Composer: Marco Beltrami

From: Die Hard 4.0

Chosen by:
Crew (Glenn)
Film (Scott)

Marco Beltrami was the obvious choice for Glenn when he noticed he composed the music for classic horror favourite Scream. Scream was actually his first major film as composer and he has gone on to have a successful career composing for many films, including the more recent Die Hards.

Where are we leaping to?

Actor: Matthew Lillard

To: Scream 2

Chosen by:
Actor (Mike)
Film (Glenn)

Surprisingly Matthew Lillard appears (uncredited) in Scream 2 (in the background of a party scene) and so Glenn (who has picked uncredited actors before) really shouldn’t have surprised anyone with this pick.
