Scream! was cancelled after 15 issues, along with five other IPC titles, in response to an industrial dispute. It subsequently merged with Eagle (#128, 1 September 1984) to form Eagle and Scream! The only strips to make it into Eagle were the series Monster and The Thirteenth Floor were continued. Five Halloween specials were also released from 1985 to 1989, mostly consisting of reprints of horror-themed stories from IPC’s back catalogue.
