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.…
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…
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. Take that, The Cabin in the Woods.
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…
a preacher to all the other horror movies out there. thrilling, too!!! awesome!<3
Meta before meta and scary to boot. Ghostface is as iconic as Jason Voorhees. It even inspired legions of knock-offs, much like the movies it parodies.
I like scream better than I do nightmare on elm street, its a little to silly at times but as a horror its fun and clever.
Bar maybe Shaun of the Dead, it's the best horror comedy out there.
One of the best horror-comedies out there.
Scream uses a new, smart idea of using the rules of horror films to survive one yourself, and Wes Craven once again defines the horror genre with this great blend of humour and scares. With it boasting a talented cast and a witty script, Craven and Williamson show that the horror genre has not yet ended, and can always be redefined.
I was obsessed with this film as a 12 year old and I credit it with jump-starting my love of the horror genre. The hip meta 90sness of it hasn't dated all that well, but the thriller setpieces work terrifically, especially that first 15 minutes which is still among my very favorite slasher sequences and movie openings of all time.

If you haven't seen this film yet, you really really should. For the sake of those few people who have yet to watch it, there are a few spoilers in my write up below.
If you read Buzzfeed then you may be aware of this recent article that discusses the idea that there could have been three killers stalking the town of Woodsboro. In my interweb travels, I had heard of this theory but never really thought much of it until I decided to rewatch Scream and put the theory to the test. Once you open your mind to this possibility, certain aspects of the film that you probably overlooked at one viewing or another (as I did) suddenly make…
