Popular horror film Scream 4 can now be watched online for free. Here is how you can stream the pivotal Wes Craven-directed film right now on Facebook.

In 1996, renowned 80s director Wes Craven turned the horror genre on its head with the release of Scream. The hit project brought slasher films back from the dead, and gave it a modern spin.

The franchise was so popular that it’s getting a fifth installment at the start of 2022. To celebrate its return, Lionsgate has teamed up with Facebook to let fans watch Scream 4 online for free starting in November.

Scream 4 hit theaters in 2011, and was unfortunately Wes Craven’s final project before he passed away in 2015. While the series was initially meant to be a trilogy, the entire original cast returned for the anticipated reboot. 

The story sees main protagonist Sidney Prescott, portrayed by Neve Campbell, return to her hometown of Woodsboro decades after the events of the first film. The feature introduced a new cast such as Emma Roberts and Hayden Panettiere.

Lionsgate Films is treating fans of the series by uploading the fourth installment for free online for a limited time. Those wanting to watch right now need to go to their Facebook page (which you can reach here). The video will only play if you have an account with the social media platform and are logged in.

Scream 4 was generally liked by critics and fans upon release, and was praised for staying faithful to the first film – while introducing a new generation of characters to the lore.

In 2020, it was revealed that a fifth film was going into production. While there is little known about the project, actors Neve Campbell, David Arquette, Courtney Cox have confirmed they will reprise their roles.

At the time of writing, the project is scheduled to release in January 2022. It will be interesting to see the new direction the franchise takes, especially with the loss of Wes Craven at the helm.

Spider-Verse producer wants Spider-Man: Miles Morales glitches in sequel

The transformational glitches in Spider-Man: Miles Morales are pretty hilarious. So hilarious, in fact, that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’s producer, screenplay and story writer, Phil Lord, wants to use them in the hit movie’s sequel.

Lord and his filmmaking duo, Christopher Miller, are no strangers to animation or comedy. With titles like Spider-Verse, Lego Movie, and 21 Jump Street under their shared filmmaking belt, it’s no wonder that the two are unafraid of getting a little weird with the animated Spider-Man flick’s sequel.

And if you want inspiration for red and blue weirdness, look no further than the Miles Morales game. Playable on PS4 and PS5, the title has apparently been a massive success, with 97 percent of Google users enjoying it. While people are typically annoyed with launch day bugs, the issues with this one are just too funny to chastise. 

With weird, viral videos of players transforming into various inanimate objects, it was actually a transformation of a patio heater that caught Lord’s eye. Now, it appears that “Heater Parker” could become a reality in Spider-Verse 2.

Since the original Spider-Verse movie was chock-full of absurdities and goofy odes to different genres or pop-culture references, invoking a video game’s glitch should be no problem. And, as far as content goes, few things evoke comedic surrealism as much as a patio heater using a web to swing from building to building in New York City.

For Lord, at least, the randomized development mistake appears too funny to ignore as film inspiration: “We’re putting this in Spider-Verse 2 if we have any self-respect at all.”

Hopefully, he and Miller have as much self-respect as the title’s developers, Insomniac Games, have humility. In response to Lord’s tweet, which has since gone viral, the game’s makers couldn’t help but acknowledge their imperfections with a pun.

While we were under the impression that patio heaters were meant to heat patios, not hearts, the Insomniac reflection remains accurate: this silly, inanimate object glitch is “equally as embarrassing as it is heartwarming.”

But, above all else, they’re just funny. It could legitimately be one of gaming and cinema’s greatest, most randomly inspired crossovers if Spider-Verse 2 involves an alternate dimensional Heater Parker.
