Courteney Cox Brings Back Her Atrocious ‘Scream 3’ Bangs In Video To Freak Out Her Fans

We all remember Gale Weathers and her terrible, awful, no good, very bad bangs from Scream 3, right?

In case you need a refresher:


The word “oof” comes to mind.

So what’s the perfect Halloween “trick” when you’re Courteney Cox?  Why, to resurrect the worst bangs in cinematic history, of course.

Happy Halloween! ????????????

A post shared by Courteney Cox (@courteneycoxofficial) on

Cox, who was getting in the spirit of the season by watching Scream 3, brought scissors to her side bangs on camera and mangled them.

“And I noticed that Gale Weathers has those infamous bangs. I don’t think anything’s that wrong with it. Check it out.”

Hopefully that was a wig because she ain’t never getting that hair back otherwise.

At the end of the video, Ghostface (the costume worn by the Scream killer) pops up behind her and brandishes a knife, as Cox screams.

The last film in the Scream franchise, Scream 4, came out in 2011 and featured original cast members Cox, her ex-husband David Arquette and Neve Campbell, in addition to a new cast led by Emma Roberts, Hayden Panettiere and Rory Culkin.

Scream 4 was intended to start the next trilogy of Scream films, but that idea ended with the death of series creator and director, Wes Craven.

Maybe those bangs will make a true comeback in a possible fifth sequel.
