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.…
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…
one of my all time favorites. I watch it whenever I get a chance!
Fuck yes. That's my review.
But really, Scream is probably one of the best horror-comedies ever made. It walks the line between self aware parody and genuine suspense better than any other I can think of (I'm looking at you Cabin in the Woods).
A stellar cast (even if the extras can be astoundingly awful) and a stellar director from one of the best horror scripts of last 20 years...what's not to love?
This film will always have a special place in my heart. Even almost 20 years later, it remains fresh and funnier as ever.
Although I watched it in the evening the time was really horrendous for me while watching in the summer of 1997. It has one of grizzly scenes of horror films in the opening.
what so fun and good about this movie is because this movie is about scary movie lover who know what a formula to make standar-scary-movie-flick.
Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven it's a perfect combo to make a horror millenium movie like this.smart,fun and scary.
Wes Craven's horror/comedy holds up extremely well and still packs plenty of scares and nervous laughter even when you know what's coming. The conventions of the horror genre are bent and manipulated to throw the viewer of the tracks and keep him guessing.
I was riding high off the one-two of Rosemary's Baby and The Descent. Each embody two different styles of horror, but both are equally successful, enjoyable for horror neophytes, and at least adequate in acting and dialogue. Unfortunately, Scream has knocked me off my figurative horse and back into grouch mode.
Let me get to the good first. The best part about Scream is that it makes it's protagonists feel capable of actually defeating the villains. Similarly, the killers don't feel unstoppable and their attacks are just the right amount of messy, which makes sense considering their ultimate reveal. The film gives Neve Campbell's Sidney the proper dosage of self-referential material. She's smart, competent, and aware, but not to the…
1996's Scream Is One Of My Favorite Films, I Like It Because It's Turning 20 Years Old In 2016.
In the vein of later movies like Cabin in the Woods and The Guest, but maybe a little too on the nose in terms of dialogue and homages?
Still, overall, creative and quite fun.
