Neve Campbell has promised 'Scream 4' will be "scary and funny".

The film stars original cast members from the first three films Neve, Courteney Cox, David Arquette as well as new actresses Emma Roberts and Hayden Panettiere and Neve has praised director Wes Anderson for his work on the new movie.

Talking to Absolute Radio's Ben Jones, she said: "It's going to be very scary, very funny, Wes Craven is brilliant."

Despite being a veteran of the horror franchise Neve has admitted she still gets scared and was terrified by one of the crew on set.

She explained: "We did have a prop guy on set who was actually trying to scare us with knives and things which was very scary."

Director Wes has previously said he believes the film will be a "fun" one which fans of the horror franchise will be able to enjoy despite it focusing on a younger crew.

He said: "The young cast brings a whole different world to it and a whole different take on horror.

"It's a lot about looking back on the last ten years of horror and comparing it and contrasting it and having fun with it."
