I thought I’d put together a map to help people find their way around the Michigan filming locations of Scream 4. Think back to the Summer and early Fall of 2010 when the Paramount trucks filled parking lots around the area, and the screams could be heard late at night in quiet suburban neighborhoods! It was a fun time.

I’m still tweaking and updating this, so consider it the Beta Version for now.  Click on the square in the top right of the map to see the more helpful full-screen view. Suggestions welcome.


I posted this photograph back in August and quickly pulled it down again. As you can see it’s a run through of the now familiar scene where Ghost Face breaks his way into Jill’s house and uses his knife in a rather brutal way through the letterbox. Do houses really still have letterboxes? Why?!

I did re-post the photograph, but not until I’d blurred out the photo storyboard which was propped nonchalantly beside the door. Click to see the high-res image and see if you can squint enough to work out the scenes depicted in the images.

The Reporters of Scream 4

They may not be the movie’s biggest stars, but clearly they’re gaining a little notoriety of a sort since Scream 4’s release. Here are the Woodsboro TV station reporters getting prepared for their shoot.

Scream 4 Photo of the Day

Posted: April 5, 2011 in Scream 4

Everyone’s favorite photograph of Neve Campbell, taken on one of the best night shoots in Ann Arbor in August 2010. I say ‘best’ because it was one of the rare nights of shooting when most of the action was outside for the crowd to watch. Also security that night were a lot less paranoid, and I’m sure that’s the reason why there are a lot of photographs out there of these scenes being shot.

This picture was taken between takes while Neve was sitting on the steps of Olivia’s house. It’s pretty clear now from all the information out there that this scene is probably the direct aftermath of whatever happens inside Olivia’s house. Hey, in 15 days we’ll ALL know. Well, except me. Because I will be on a tropical beach somewhere, no movie theater in sight. But honestly, I pretty much know how it goes down at this point, and that’s ok.

The other small story about this photo is that the night I posted it I was concerned about the mark on Neve’s cheek being a spoiler, so I actually photo-shopped it out of the version I posted online. So this is the original version, with blood!

Setting up to film in front of the Woodsboro Police Department in Plymouth, MI.  Metro Detroiters, doesn’t that news reporter on the right look remarkably like Channel 4 News’ own Devin Scillian?

We are counting down the days now, and soon all the secrets will be out there. Yes, I know there are a dozen or more possible plots out there and I’ve read some of them. I don’t care. It’s a movie. It won’t ruin my enjoyment if I think I have a good idea who the killer is. There’s so much more to the experience for me than that final scene. By some miscalculation of epic proportions I’ll actually be out of the country on the release date. So much for a midnight viewing, or even watching it within the first week. Ah well, I’ll have the sand between my toes, the sun on my face, and be sipping Mojitos, so I’m not gonna complain.

But I am going to go through my set pics and try to put one up every day or so. Most have been seen before. Some not. Enjoy.

One of the funnest nights on set with a younger crowd watching. Hayden was acknowledging a few hecklers from across the street with a smile.
