The Recasting Couch Ep. 96: Scream


Hello TRC fans, we are back with a new episode.  This week, we are joined by our friend from the Medium Popcorn podcast, comedian and podcaster Brandon Collins as we recast the 1996 horror classic: Scream.

This cast is just packed.  Neve Campbell, Skeet Ulrich, Matthew Lillard, Jamie Kennedy, Rose McGowen, Courtney Cox, David Arquette and the list goes on.  The original casting was just about perfect, although Mike take issue with one cast member in particular.

Our guest, who picked this movie, explains the special impact this movie had on his life and shows off a nearly encyclopedic knowledge of the movie and the fun facts that surround it.

All in all, we really liked this movie.  It felt like the convergence of the right people, with the right script and right director at the right time.  Surprisingly, it really holds up. That being said, I think that we put together a fun cast that I would pay to see try this movie.


Thanks for listening everyone. Our numbers are showing that you all are doing your jobs and telling friends, but it’s not over yet! We need you to keep spreading the word, and we’ll keep delivering this A+++ content (no guarantees). Mark your calendars now because we are doing our first live podcast for Philly Pod Fest on July 27th at Tattooed Mom on South Street. Admission is free, and we’re super excited for it, and we’re expecting a pretty packed house. So come out and support all of the podcasts (but mostly ours), and get some cheap drinks. Here’s a pro tip, when you are at Tattooed Mom, ask for a “Mom Chip” and if you show that chip when you order a drink, you’ll get $1 off. If you have any questions about the fest, email us at, or reach out to us on twitter @recastingpod. See ya next week!
