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!
"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.…
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…
I'd never seen this before for whatever reason but despite it's very 90's aesthetic I really enjoyed it. The constant movie references could have been annoying but it works so well here.
it's like one of those Wes Carpenter movies.
This came out when I was seven and forced my sister to watch it with me when it was released on VHS. Mom was not pleased to say the least. I didn't sleep for a couple days but totally worth it. 17 years later, I still love it. IT WILL NEVER GET OLD. I love everything about it: the characters, the town, the humor, the scares, the references, the music, and etc. I honestly can't wait to watch it again next October.
Watched this film countless times, and it never gets old. Every time there is something new to laugh at and find ridiculous (this time, my roommates and I made fun of Billy's hair), and every time there is a scene or moment that thrills me, or makes me jump. Plus, Sidney is one of my favorite badass final girls.
I didn't remember much of Scream since I only saw it a couple times when I was younger, I remembered the spoofed Scary Movie more so. Having re-watched it now was awesome. I caught all the references this time (at least I think so). With an awesome script and funny characters, Scream might have just become my favorite slasher of all time.
*Insert meta joke* Horror comedies, specially from the 90's and forward, usually are just comedies with some creepy elements around them but what makes Wes Craven's "Scream" so unique is the fact that it can have some of the funniest dialogue you'll ever hear one second and then the next will have some of the scariest, gruesome moments in slasher history.
With extremely memorable characters, Craven's signature stylish direction and an overly witty script, the best way I can describe this film is if Hitchcock decided to throw in some comedy on "Psycho" you'd get "Scream".
I haven't seen Scream in maybe 15 years. But I watched it about 20 times back then, obsessively. Still holds up. And watching it now it's a great time capsule of how Tarantino influenced flicks at the time and of how innovative Miramax films in the '90s were (check out all the Clerks references layered throughout the movie). Although the sequels were fun, I like to pretend that this is stand alone. Love how twisted and meta it still is during the climax.
"What's your favourite scary movie?" Well, Scream is one of them!
The line "My Mom and Dad are gonna be so mad at me!" coming from a serial-killing teen is one of my favourite movie moments ever, haha.
