Scream 4 / Scre4m, Gale Weathers-Riley’s (Courtney Cox) The Woodsboro Murders Hardcover Book

original movie prop

This 9 ½” x 7 ½” hardcover book was made for the bookshop scene where Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) comes to promote her self-help autobiography, Out of the Darkness: A True Story of Survival, in Scream 4 (2011). The actual pages that fill this prop are from an actual published book called The Terrorist Next Door. The Woodsboro Murders was Gale’s first best-seller, and details the events of Scream (1996). The book is a pivotal part of the franchise, in that it inspired the creation of the Stab movies. In Scream 3 (2000), Dewey (David Arquette) uses a hollowed out copy of the book to propose to Gale. Gale’s first three books (The Woodsboro Murders, College Terror, and Hollywood Horror) are based on true stories that follow the events of Scream 1-3. In the ten years since Scream 3, no other Ghostface incidents have occurred for her to report on, and in addition to that, Sidney has threatened to sue over the rights to her story, which forced Gale to then turn to writing a series of fictional novels (Knife of Doom, Clock of Doom, Ghostface Returns, and Knife of the Hunter) to captivate a blood-thirsty audience hungry for more. Now struggling with a serious case of writer’s block, it doesn’t help Gale’s confidence any to see Sidney’s authorial debut making big waves in the publishing world, further pushing her out of the spotlight. When new Ghostface murders suddenly begin hitting the town of Woodsboro again, Gale sets out to investigate in the hopes of scaring up some juicy inspiration that will put her back on top.
