Screamson 2 is about to end, but you still have time to watch all 11 episodes leading to the season 2 finale of this dark teen slasher drama mystery that is Scream, or as many refer to it as MTV SCREAM or more officially Scream: The TV Series. The conclusion to this wickedly eerie chapter airs this Tuesday, August 16 at 10PM. So many questions are becoming answered, but we’re also left with so many still wide open. Like last year in our MTV’s Scream – Season 1 Finale (Screamson 1), we’re going to talk about our thoughts on the new and current story, characters and the potential killer(s)/accomplice(s).
Last year, we wrote out all our perspectives of the characters the show had given us right before the finale. This time, the story has gotten deeper with certain situations as well as introducing many new ones. What’s Eli and Aunt Tina hiding? Who burnt the house down that Emma was in with Eli? Why are Audrey’s letters in Kieran’s house? Why did Zoe have to die after Noah was stalked for the first time? Is Gustavo making the deaths in his comic book or is he really just a twisted artist from living with a Sheriff as a father?
In August 2015, the new web series Mæry Queenswas filmed and now, not even a year later, we have the first trailer. Whether you want to spell or call it Mary Queens, Maery Queens or connect that “A” and “E” together for the Columbian spelling of the series created by Corzo Productions, you can find the debut of this inventive new show on April 30th of this year. Watch the trailer below.
So where and when did it premier? Last night, Eddie Jelinet had an artist event premiering his latest music video release “Caged Animals” and had an an amazing turnout with special guests including his iconic “red rose man” (does he have a name or is he a representation of everyone?) as he played violin that transitioned with a “caged animal” spirit and even had a true full-blooded Native American on the stage. It was a world of color and heart that only the people in that room got to experience at Sevilla Nightclub in Long Beach, California.
See Eddie Jelinet’s music video trailer and art video below.
Afterwards, the cast and crew of Maery Queens went on stage and the trailer debuted. Actors that made an appearance at the event include the fabulous Ash Nicole (who is featured in the “My Vacation In LA” Long Beach promo and plays Rachel in MQ), Anthony Moore from MTV Brazil (who plays the best friend Andrew), Felix Aispuro (who plays the Columbian hearthrob Mario) and Alex Correa (who plays the quirky and hot-tempered LB native Jośe).
Being a fan off horror/thrillers, Trippy Tran Films writer/director Anthony Rory Tran experienced Wes Craven’s SCREAM when he was 13 years old. Movies like this have inspired him as a filmmaker (read the Inspiring Scares article by Slasher Studios) and when Scream 5 got cancelled, a spin-off stand-alone show was announced in 2013. Now 2 years later at the tail end of summer 2015, the final episode of MTV’s Scream is here. (See below for character theories!)
Now has the series so far lived up to the original films? It’s interpretive. For Tran, he believes that there are moments that will leave chills and horrify, but are also moments that drag with too many side stories (like most TV show spinoffs of movies) and not enough scenes with long lasting suspense, minus episode 7 “In The Trenches” and most of episode 3 “Wanna Play A Game” as those never let go of the suspense we know and love in a franchise like this. A lot of people also agree, there isn’t a lot of chase scenes. The killer seems to get his dinner and go, wanting some fast food for his murderous appetite – as Noah might say.
Wes Craven born Aug 2, 1939 passes this weekend on Aug 30, 2015, the weekend before the finale of MTV’s Scream. MTV said they are doing a tribute to him after the episode. Not to be a Piper, but isn’t that a little odd that the director of the beloved franchise dies before the season finale of a not-s0-lived-up TV series of the same name? R.I.P. Wes Craven. You made some of the most unique horror films to-date.
So now with the final episode, MTV is asking everyone to tell them #WHOISTHEKILLER for season 1. Could there be a new story and killer in season 2? A continuance? How long can this Brandon James story last also as it does delve into the supernatural realm a bit – which was announced when the show greenlighted in 2013.
Anthony Tran gives his two cents from watching this season breaking down the characters, theories and who he thinks is the killer below! The season finale is tonight!!!!! See it tonight and then come back tomorrow to hear our thoughts on the season. Watch it tonight on MTV 10pm/9pm central. (All photos are owned by the respective artists.) CONTAINS SPOILERS!
P.S. You’ll never hear the classic song “Daisy Bell” the same way ever again after watching this!
Having a passion for several projects, it’s no surprise that director/writer Anthony T. Tran would delve himself into the world of acting.
“John Doe” premiered today on VEVO, featuring a role by Trippy Tran Films owner Anthony Tran.
When he was 15, MTV came to his high school looking for the next ‘Made’ – a show about every day teenagers wanting to do something with their passion – in which Tran applied to be made into a filmmaker. At the last minute, he changed his mind and selected model instead. During the interview, which was with a lady and a recording camera in an office, the lady asked him why he wanted to be a model. He told her the truth that he is indefinitely passion about film making, but wanted to experience the other side of the camera and also show what he can do in front of the lens.
Tran went to attend Scarlet Oaks Vocational School his junior year of high school where he made several videos including his first attempted feature at the age of 16 called “The Dumbest Horror Flick Ever” and other music videos and projects, taking turns acting for all his classmates projects and then starring in some of his own like the MSI “Prom” cover video he did when he was 17.
In college, he did the same for his classmates and even made cameos in his first short films in 2008 “InPersonNation” and had fun in the “Universal Intelligence” music video by Dok when he attended Brown Mackie College-Cincinnati in the Audio/Video Production program (which will no longer be a program as of September 2015). From 2007-2009, he was in movies like “Crosses To Bare”, “Pizza Boy’s Fantasy”, sang the end to “Cyclone: Behind The Storm” and a cameo as ‘Tiger Woods’.
Reaching out on his own projects, he found opportunity and was then cast as an extra in Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and then in several other videos and projects including Zebras In Public’s “Propaganda” video – which was shot with the newly released Red Cinema 4K camera – giving his debut on VEVO for the first time. VEVO is an industry-only approved video site where all the top artists and celebrities appear. “John Doe” marks his second appearance on VEVO and was made possible with the amazing talent and collaborations with the ‘Rock-N-Soul’ band, Zebras In Public.
Tran is passionate about all aspects of the production process and we plan on seeing more of him in front of the camera soon. Currently, he has auditioned for a web series in Long Beach, CA and is hoping for more opportunities to come. If you would like to cast him for a project, you can email him at Anthony.Rory.Tran@gmail.com

Anthony Tran has currently been added to “Producers to watch 2015” and “Interesting Producers” via Twitter last night. Read his review of the iTunes release of Zebras In Public’s “Paradise Leg”. The album features both singles posted above and in addition, includes the song “Let It Go” – which was chosen for the Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown soundtrack.
If you want a band that really knows music, look no further, Zebras In Public shine in originality and thought-provoking lyrics all while being so fun to listen to.
Favorite songs include “Go” which talks about someone you just want to get away from, “Propaganda”, the first single, has a catchy chorus and really sets a tone, “John Doe” the second single, which I heard the music vid debuts on VEVO June 9, 2015, a psychedelic story song with hints of inspiration from Pink Floyd with a blues-style funk, “Blown Away” is a high energy party jammer, and “Let It Go”, which is featured in the upcoming indie film “Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown”, has some real powerful lyrics and shows how mature this band really is, all while still rocking out and having fun.
Definitely check this album out. Lead singer, Zeb, rocks the striped mohawk which is pretty gnarly. Their efforts are definitely a 5/5. With all the originality and at less than 10 bucks for 14 solid songs, you can’t go wrong. This is a music journey you won’t want to miss.
Other faves: “Sunrise”, “Ladies Rock” and “Change My Life” – really there are a lot of great songs here.
