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.
Rest in Peace, Wes Craven. An absolute master of the horror genre.
Scream was literally the first horror movie I ever watched and it scared the living shit out me. While this movie traumatized me as an 11 year old boy, it also managed to make me become extremely interested in the horror genre. This man is responsible for revolutionizing the horror genre not just once, but twice. He is also responsible for making me become a horror fan.
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…
Damn. This is a sad night.
Wes Craven was a profoundly influential filmmaker to me during my childhood. I remember witnessing A Nightmare on Elm Street (still my favorite of his) late at night on HBO or something of the sort and I was scared shitless. However, I also was enthralled by its playfulness and its confidence as a dreamy horror fable. Soon after, I hunted down a copy of Scream, and again, I was simultaneously scared shitless and astounded by its inventiveness and clever takes on the Slasher genre that he helped elevate.
Even now, I continue to be mesmerized and frightened by the use of horror and comedy within Scream. Each trope of the particular genres are…
Injecting life into a moribund subgenre of horror, Wes Craven's "Scream" both celebrated and revitalized slasher films upon its release in 1996. A post-modern, genre-referential chiller, the film profited on its comedic lilt, fresh-faced cast, and violence. Nearly twenty years later, the film still works and works very well. Its novelty may have worn off, but its core mystery, committed production, and ability to thrill make "Scream" an outstanding piece of horror.
Kevin Williamson's screenplay is built around the teenage citizens of Woodsboro, an idyllic hamlet rocked by a series of violent murders. As the body count rises, Neve Campbell's Sidney tries to piece together the killer's identity while trying to avoid her own demise.
It is all standard narrative…
A heartbreaking loss. It was you who introduced me to the genre with this groundbreaking film, and because of it, I'm the huge horror fan that I am today. You managed to bring life to a lifeless genre countless times and you've inspired me in ways you can't even imagine. It's like saying goodbye to a good friend I never actually met. It's weird, I'm truly at a lost for words. You and your films will surely live in my nightmares forever.
Sweet dreams, 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.…
A clever self-referential horror from director Wes Craven.
It's a scream.
I love the idea of this movie, and if the rest of the movie would have been as good as the beginning, I'd fully recommend it. Still, fans of horror movies will probably find it enjoyable enough.
Awesome. Scared the wits out of me! This is a true "who done it" film, that twists and turns towards an ending that you wouldn't expect! Loved it, thank you Wes Craven!!!
Watch Tucker and Dale vs. Evil instead. Also I watched this for school, because Cinema Studies.
I have seen this movie like million times,but i have never realised how good it is until now. Still great and fun to watch after all this time,this movie never gets old.
At least had the gall to attempt a subtle deconstruction of slasher films, but ultimately feels a little too safe.
I really enjoy watching this film many times over, the acting is cheesy at times and the storyline mocks most horror movies out there, but the movie overall is brilliant and a classic.
