We make fun of James Franco an awful lot on the internet — remember his short-lived flirtation with a Blood Meridian adaptation before it turned out he never had the rights to the movie? — but credit where it is due: Franco isn’t afraid to lend his celebrity to some pretty challenging subject matter. And after checking out the first trailer for Goat, I think it’s safe to say that Franco’s work as both actor and producer were well-placed on this one.
The Scream franchise grew increasingly meta with each subsequent sequel, but will the same prove true of MTV’s teen adaptation? The first Season 2 trailer isn’t discounting the horror movie rules just yet, as there’s a new killer on the loose, and everyone’s as much a suspect as they are meat for the grinder.
