We wish we could offer a review of Paramount‘s SCREAM 6, but after waiting 3.5-hours being kettled in what organizers from GOFOBO called a “Fan Section,” we could not get in to see the film.
Since we have been at this since 2008, we clearly understand that these kinds of events are overbooked to ensure a solid audience. But we also understand that if you asked folk to arrive by 5pm and the screening is scheduled for 7:30pm, there’s no question but that at 7:10pm you know there’s no more room in the presser for the premiere. Let us know and don’t keep us around as content acquisition fodder for the BTS team (“Oh, look how many people want to see the film!”).
Marketing companies, publicity outlets, and content creators (read “studios”) need to stop disrespecting the blogs who are the word-of-mouth lifeblood of their movies, as well as the fans. ¡BASTA!
We wish the cast and crew continued success.
