PARIS — A teenage boy who allegedly stabbed his father and stepmother 24 hours after seeing “Scream 3” on its opening night in France has been charged with attempted murder.
The 16-year-old was wearing a mask like the killer in the movie when he lunged at the couple with a kitchen knife at their home in a Paris suburb last Thursday, French police said.
Both victims were hospitalized; the wife suffering from serious facial wounds.
The youth, who had a history of mental problems, sustained leg and back injuries as he leapt from a window of the family’s third floor apartment. He was committed to a prison hospital.
