Someone has taken their love of scary movies one step too far.
A killer known as Ghostface begins killing off teenagers, and as the body count begins rising, one girl and her friends find themselves contemplating the "Rules" of horror films as they find themselves living in a real-life one.
A small-sleepy town gets woke-the-fuck-up by a Ghostface killa, and everyone is a fuckin' suspect. Jiffy Pop on the stove. A fuckin' killer on the phone. A shocking beginning that you never see coming. Neve before her Wild-Things-threesome. An edited-for-television relationship. A severe case of blue-balls. The slutty and busty best-friend. Crazy-as-fuck Stu. Randy works at a video-rental-store and has never been laid. Skeet before Jericho doing his best Johnny Depp impersonation. Deputy fuckin' Dewey. A cougar-tabloid-twit reporter that I would be friends with. A fat-fuck cameraman who loves Cheetos. A scary-staircase chase. High-tech 911. A big-ass cellular phone. Fingering the wrong guy again. A Ray Donovan cameo. Fonzie's last shark-jump. Richard Gere loves gerbils. Who the fuck is Wes…
I'm a hardcore horror fan and I prefer my horror served straight up.. Hold the Comedy! But when the comedy is this clever even I can't resist!
The opening scene is Wickedly Delicious! The rest is a slight step down but maintains a higher standard than most slasher films!
Gruesome Good Fun!

Ohhhh how Scream is one of the guiltiest of all indulgences. Wes Craven delivered what is essentially a satirical, violent, and hip post modern horror film that almost plays out like a big bloody episode of Scooby-Doo... There are no Spooky Space Kooks or Miner Forty-Niners. The characters that populate the fictional town of Woodsboro are entirely real and they live beyond the run-time of the movie. The old stories, history of the town, and overbearing nostalgic feeling make this a town that will always welcome us in and make our stay comfy. Despite people hanging from trees with their intestines hanging out, of course.…
Scream: a horror movie that defined a generation, for better or worse. I've heard people consider Wes Craven's post-modern opus to be the best slasher film since the original Halloween. While that's a claim I can't instantly agree with, Scream certainly is and has become one of the most influential and bankable franchises in the horror genre.
Back in the 90's, almost everyone fell in love with Scream. We hadn't seen anything like it before. Most people went in expecting another by the numbers slasher movie. Drew Barrymore was making her comeback in Hollywood and ads and trailers implied she was the main star, setting up a brief plot twist that echoes back to the original Nightmare on Elm Street.…
A lot of backlash seems to have come towards Scream in recent years, and I'll just go ahead and say it's completely undeserved. As a whole, this has aged beautifully. Not only is Scream hilarious, but it is also truly terrifying.
Kevin Williamson's script is filled with delightful satire, riotous lines ("Did you really call the police? My mom and dad are gonna be so mad at me!") and a vicious, gory bite. Wes Craven gives the film an eye for the perfect angles and shots to scare you, and ways to lessen the gore that is shown (probably to get cut down from the NC-17 that the film originally recieved.), while still giving us plenty to cringe at, or…
No, please don't kill me Mr. Ghostface. I want to be in the sequel!
Do you remember the first time you saw Scream?
I was still in high school in 1996. I went to the theatre to see Scream with a group of friends, some of whom were already seeing it for the second time.
I was definitely not as into film then as I am now. But it looked scary and fun, and my favorite actress just happened to have a big starring role - or so I thought - so I just had to check it out. (If you have not seen the film, or the multiple parodies, you should stop reading here.)
So yeah, the movie begins…
The hell is a "bubble-butt boyfriend"?? :/
ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ대사봐.... 넘 재밌다 하나도 안 무섭고 ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 이것도 미저리 같이 너무 아이콘화 되어 있어서 공포효과보다 그냥.. .
아니 이 정도로 평을 끝내면 안돼지. 메타 호러야. 그러니까 똑똑하고 좋은 영화지.
What's your favourite scary movie?
I will admit, I'm not aquatinted with the slasher genre, so many of the more subtle winks very well may have flown over my head, but a lot of the humor and cleverness at play in this movie I definitely caught with a basic understanding of horror tropes in general. And I say humor because, at times, this Wes Craven directed "classic" is very witty in the way it deals with said tropes. It's not a full-out comedy like "Shaun of the Dead", which was made with the intent if humor-- this is very much still a horror movie at heart, and it's a pretty good one at that. I will say that Scream has one of the most memorable…
Standout sequences - the opening with Casey, the fountain scene, the principal's death, Randy's Rules scene, Tatum vs the Garage Door, Randy "behind you" with the movie and tape delay.... if I list too many it defeats the purpose I guess. The entire ending is also just really tremendous non-stop.
Don't watch Scary Movie before watching this film.
A killer known as Ghostface begins killing off teenagers, and as the body count begins rising, one girl and her friends find themselves contemplating the "Rules" of horror films as they find themselves living in a real-life one. Wes Craven directs a Kevin Williamson script to perfection, both reveling and subverting the horror tropes that had dominated the 70s and 80s horror scene and bringing a bit of self-awareness to the genre that would dominate for almost another decade. A great script, fantastic casting, a dose of very sick but relateable humor and some wild slasher kills make this one just about perfect.
This film does drag at times a little with its attempts to build characterization, but the script is just so clever. It balances the scares and the comedy very well, scary in how realistic and unpredictable it is and funny in how self-aware it is of itself and other slasher films like it.
