As Halloween slowly creeps upon the City of Philadelphia, Author Padraic Maroney is set out to unmask the mystery that is Scream. With the Scream franchise’s 25th anniversary rapidly approaching in December, Maroney still feels the films’ impact. In his novel, It All Began with a Scream, Maroney provides readers with unique insights into the horror movie series that left us all wanting more.
With 30 interviews conducted with cast and crew members, It All Began with a Scream takes an unauthorized look at what it took to develop the film series that forever moved American culture. Initially expected to flop, Scream quickly became a word-of-mouth phenomenon. Fast forward almost 25 years, the Scream franchise’s fifth movie is set to be released in early 2022. From unhinged drama, studio meddling, lawsuits, and more, It All Began with a Scream came just in time to share the untold stories of the movie series that forever changed pop culture.
Maroney is dedicated to giving his audience a raw look at these iconic movies in the horror genre. He recently announced that he will continue this series and take a deep dive looking behind the scenes of the film series, Saw. Debuting 8 years after the cult classic Scream, Saw spooked the world with its tortuous suspense.
Author Padraic Maroney said, “To follow-up to an iconic franchise like Scream, my next book is exploring a franchise that helped to create its own sub-genre within horror films. For nearly a decade, the Saw films terrorized audiences with the horrific traps imagined by Jigsaw while also offering morality tales for the audience.”
Excitement brews as the discussion about Padraic Maroney’s insightful take on these iconic films continue. Known for casting a spell on his audience, there’s no doubt this Philadelphia author will captivate readers once again with The Book of Saw.
