Directed by suspense master Wes Craven and with music by Italian progressive rock band Goblin, “Scream – The Giallo Cut” will leave you breathless.
I never tried to make Scream feel like BLANK movie. Even though the primary music used was from Suspiria, I wasn’t trying to make the plot, dialogue, characters and events more like Suspiria. I'm not trying to change Scream from being Scream too much as I love that movie and think it is perfect how it is. Nor am I trying to replace Scream. I did see some opportunities to tone down the meta aspects of Scream but it’s still a horror film about people who know and love horror films.
I wanted this to feel like a movie you would find at a garage sale.
IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER ABOUT THIS FANEDIT
This edit was sourced from the uncut VHS of Scream. This was done primarily as a throwback to the picture quality of Italian horror films from the 70s. It is intended to be watched on an older CRT television. Prepare yourself to see some ghosting artifacts, frame blending and static at the top and bottom of the frame. I highly suggest you watch the Opening Sequence clip before you download so you can see what you're in for.
If you watch it on an older TV the flaws don't show up as much in the picture. Older TVs will crop off the edges and reduce the static and the picture will look fairly crisp (for VHS standards). Newer TVs will pick up the flaws a lot more and leave you with a terrible picture.
Of course, you could manually set your HDTV to crop the picture to 16:9 to get rid of the static at the top and bottom, but then you'd be watching a cropped version of a cropped film. *evil laugh*
