“What’s your favorite scary movie?”
The first season of new Netflix series “Santa Clarita Diet” is headed to the streaming service on Friday, February 3rd, and it stars Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant as a married couple whose lives get a little strange when Barrymore’s character, well, she dies… and returns to life. What do Barrymore and Olyphant have in common? They both starred in the Scream franchise!
In one of the most memorable opening scenes in horror history, Barrymore played the role of the ill-fated Casey Becker, and Olyphant later played secondary antagonist Mickey Altieri in Scream 2. Yes, Barrymore was one of Ghostface’s very first victims and Olyphant played an iteration of Ghostface, giving the new Netflix show a fun little connection for Scream fans.
Why do I bring this up? While out promoting “Santa Clarita Diet,” Barrymore and Olyphant recently made an appearance on the French talk show “C á Vous,” and the hosts had them recreate the iconic opening from Scream. Of course, Barrymore played the role of Casey Becker, while Olyphant provided the voice of Ghostface. A fun little spoof/homage to the past, if nothing more.
