With ‘Scream 4′ Opening Today, We Scare Up A Brief History Of ‘Scream’ Hotties

Over the past 15 years the “Scream” franchise has given us some major scares…and some seriously major hotties. With “Scream 4finally hitting theaters today we wanted to take a look back at all the guys from the horror saga who gave us some big thrills and chills (in more ways than one!)

From good boyfriends to very, very bad boyfriends, from victims to killers, let’s recall the “Scream” fellas who gave us goosebumps. Warning: in addition to all the hotness there are some MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD.

“Scream” (1996)
Major Hottie: Skeet Ulrich as Billy Loomis
On paper, Billy Loomis (Skeet Ulrich) seemed like a great boyfriend. He was hopelessly devoted to his girlfriend Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), had a passion for film and bared a striking resemblance to Johnny Depp. Sadly, Billy turned out to be a nightmare instead of a dream come true. Turns out, Billy had a bit of an ax to grind with Sid (her late mother hooked up with his dad, causing his family to split) and alongside his equally deranged pal Stu (cutie Matthew Lillard) went on a killing spree in Woodsboro. Even Billy’s good looks couldn’t save him in the end, especially not on Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox) who offed him.

“Scream 2″ (1997)
Major Hotties:
Jerry O’Connell as Derek
Timothy Olyphant as Mickey
Omar Epps as Phil

For “Scream 2,” they not only decided to up the scares and the body count, but the number of sexy guys as well! While Billy Loomis may have been a bust of a boyfriend, Sidney hit the jackpot with her hunky, sensitive, (and singing!) college beau Derek (Jerry O’Connell). Sadly, another hottie by the name of Mickey (Timothy Olyphant) decided to followed in Billy’s footsteps and cover his fine face with the Ghostface mask. Along with his partner in crime Mrs. Loomis (Laurie Metcalf), Mickey terrorized and killed total strangers (including the very handsome Omar Epps as Phil, a moviegoer who doesn’t get a very happy ending) and those closest to Sidney like (sigh!) Randy (Jamie Kennedy) and dear, dear Derek.

“Scream 3″ (2000)
Major Hottie: Scott Foley as Roman Bridger
Don’t get us wrong, we love adorable original “Scream” cast members like David Arquette and Liev Schrieber (who meets his unfortunate demise by this installment) but for “Scream 3” it was all about Scott Foley. He’d always been crush-worthy, and he looked just as fine as filmmaker Roman Bridger. Sadly, those warm fuzzies didn’t last too long as it was discovered that Roman was Sid’s brother and that he’d been masterminding all the murders from the very beginning. Yes, another sexy killer (so unfair) who we won’t be seeing more of in theaters this weekend.

“Scream 4″ (2011)
Major Hotties:
Nico Tortorella as Trevor Sheldon
Adam Brody as Detective Hoss
Rory Culkin as Charlie Walker

Last, but certainly not least, are the strapping lads of “Scream 4.” Yes, poor Sidney is faced with an onslaught of slaughter, but hey, at least there’s some eye candy (who may or may not be killers) again! From hotties we’ve been loving for years (Adam Brody) to up-and-comers who catch our eye like Rory Culkin and Nico Tortorella (he was even this week’s very deserving Hump Day Hottie!) we’re not going to be able to keep our eyes closed for long during the scary scenes. We don’t want to miss a minute when these guys are on the big screen!
