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…
"Now don't you blame the movies. Movies don't create psychos. Movies make psychos more creative!"
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.…
The perfect mixture of scares and laughs. This horror parody launched an entire franchise of cult classics. It's talented cast and tounge in cheeky script cements this film as a landmark must see movie.
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…
My favourate horror film of all time, no exceptions, it's a marvel at genius I think, Wes Craven's come back from the success of A nightmare on Elm Street.
although the latest one was that good the sequel where good I thought as well but not as good as this original.
After watching A Nightmare on Elm Street last week, I now find it even more awesome that Skeet Ulrich is the main guy in the movie and climbs in though Syd's bedroom window. Never picked that up before.
The best fright fest of the ’90s, Wes Craven’s "Scream" playfully tweaks many of the horror/ slasher conventions in place since the arrival of "Halloween" and "Friday the 13th" in the mid-’80s, but it does so with a fiendishly clever, complicated plot that makes it an instant classic, and not simply of the genre. Though it begins and ends with requisite bloody roughness, the film deftly mixes irony, self-reference and wry social commentary with chills and blood spills. And even to a veteran genre fan like myself (I'm 31 lol), the ending was a genuine surprise.
Hilarious, dramatic, and scary. Scream is a rare example of a horror film which transcends genres and succeeds in all of them.
Both hilarious and suspenseful, Scream is an excellent mix between Halloween and Cabin in the Woods, successfully combining self-awareness, satire, and scares all together. Matthew Lillard, who I will always see as Shaggy, pretty much stole the show with some great delivery. I also got to hand it to Williamson, who wrote a damn entertaining screen play. Only a short review for this, but don't worry, I'll be ba- *gets stabbed by Ghostface*
Great scary movie with an awesome cast.
Pretty sure I haven't seen this since 96. At the time, this was a 5-star movie for me, but I think because there were so many movies that have emulated it over the years, it doesn't age that well. Still an entertaining watch, with a great cast.
I love a horror movie about horror movies. Learn the rules and you just might survive.
Still great, shame about the sequels.
