Paramount Home Entertainment has announced that Wes Craven’s classic 1996 slasher Scream is set for a 4K Ultra HD release on October 19th in celebration of its 25th anniversary, while the movie will also be returning to the big screen in the U.S. for two nights only on October 10th and 11th courtesy of Fathom Events.
After a series of mysterious deaths befalls their small town, an offbeat group of friends led by Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) becomes the target of a masked killer. As the body count rises, Sidney and her friends turn to the “rules” of horror films to help navigate the real-life terror they’re living in. The film also stars Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Skeet Ulrich, Matthew Lillard, Jamie Kennedy, Rose McGowan, and Drew Barrymore.
