“Scream: The True Story” Gainesville Ripper Murders Doc Coming to Discovery+

We’re less than a month away from another Scream movie heading to theaters and the folks over at Discovery+ with their “Shock Docs” series are bringing us a taste of the grisly murders that inspired the Wes Craven film in an all-new documentary of serial killer Danny Rolling, aka The Gainesville Ripper.

“Scream: The True Story”  dives into the real-life horror of a murderer who believed he was possessed by a demon named “Gemini”. Beginning in 1989, Danny Rolling stalked and murdered eight victims in Shreveport, Louisiana, and Gainesville, Florida, including five college students. Rolling was eventually convicted and executed in 2006. Now, paranormal investigator Steve Shippy and renowned psychic medium Cindy Kaza join forces to uncover the truth behind Rolling’s claims that a demon made him kill.

Ya’ll. Geminis’ get a bad enough rap already.

how our clocks are black — Incidentally, here are MORE Exorcist III gifs. :D

Per the press release:

We all know the ‘Scream’ films, but the inspiration behind them is a terrifying true story that many don’t know,” said Shippy. “As we began to peel back the layers, the investigation became more and more disturbing. There was malicious, devious energy coming at us from every angle. It felt like pure evil.

“This was one of the most intense and challenging experiences I’ve ever had,” said Kaza. “We made contact with a sinister presence, and it was definitely the most manipulative spirit that I have ever worked with. I felt like I was being messed with during the entire investigation. It shook me to my core.”

Shippy and Kaza are the first to ever conduct a paranormal investigation at the campsite near the University of Florida campus from which Rolling stalked his victims, as well as inside his childhood home in Louisiana, where aggressive poltergeist activity plagues the current homeowners. Interviews with experts and those connected to the case, including Rolling’s ex-fiancée, reveal that evil has run in his family for generations. Shippy and Kaza are confronted by powerful malevolent energy during their intense investigation – could it be the demonic force that possessed Rolling, or is it the spirit of Rolling himself? Fearing for everyone’s safety, they call in a demonologist to conduct an exorcism and help battle off the evil forces.

Launching Friday, January 14 on discovery+, SCREAM: THE TRUE STORY is produced by Campfire Studios for discovery+. For Campfire, the executive producers are Ross Girard, Mark McCune, Ross M. Dinerstein, and Rebecca Evans. For discovery+, the executive producer is Cecile Bouchardeau Weiland.

“Dr. Death” Footage Found and Restored For Scream Factory “Halloween 5” 4K Release!

It’s been nearly 32 years since the release of Michael’s revenge on Haddonfield, and what seems even longer, two years since the long-lost Dr. Death footage from Halloween 5 were finally found. Now, with the release of Scream Factory’s Ultra 4k and Blu-Ray Halloween disc collection, it’s been confirmed that said footage will be included in The Revenge Of Michael Myers!

In case you need a refresher, the original opening scenes of the film found Michael Myers swept under the care of a young occultist in lieu of the hermit in the theatrical cut of the film. This guy, who has been adorned Dr. Death, was the one who initially gave Michael the symbol of Thorn, which is also seen in the awaking of Myers in the hermit’s lair for the first time, with ZERO explanation. The “Dr. Death” scene was later scrapped in editing and was replaced with the hermit version we all know.
