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…
Scream was the first horror movie i ever watched and is the one that started my love for the genre.
Clever movie with an equally clever script, that not only comments on other slasher films but also delivers a good story for itself complete with good and memorable characters, is well acted and well directed, this last managing to be atmospheric without being forced and keeps a consistent tone.
Every time i watch it i have a good time, plus feel a bit nostalgic.
Thought I might watch one of my favourites again this morning with audio commentary from the great Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson. Love the film so much, but I will never understand why Skeet Ulrich looks so different in the film poster.
This was probably the first horror movie I've seen. This movie scarred the shit out of me. I'll tell you, if you never saw a horror movie in your entire life, make this your first horror movie ever, because this movie tells you how a horror movie must be to be good and what it needs to scare you. And don't think on "Scary Movie" while watching this, please, that's just stupid.
It has great performances and the twist in the end is just perfect. Wes Craven, stop making bad movies like the ones you're doing now, and make something new... something original... like this movie and Nightmare on Elm Street.
The 90's horror scene has much to thank for this film. The fresh perspective on horror films brings new frights and more importantly: fresh blood.
I like this film but it's NOT at all what I expected. It's honestly kinda funny and shocking.
Thank you Wes Craven, for giving me hope whenever the horror genre sucks.
Nothing is quite like Scream, a not so traditional slasher film that details the confrontation between teenager Sidney Prescott and a serial killer who has a psychotic liking for scary movies. I love this movie's self-awareness, as it openly and hilariously mocks its cliched genre while being a chilling horror/mystery film. There are some errors like obvious plot conveniences, despite them Scream's plot is still irresistible.
The acting is also surprisingly good with Neve Campbell being the best among the cast as the tragic and strong Sidney Prescott. Craven's direction is also excellent, as he cleverly blends gore and laughs.
Scream is a wonderful balance of comedy and horror, a film that everyone should recall after watching some terribly disillusioning scary movie.
Wes Craven continues the post-modern horror revitalisation that he started with New Nightmare.
In the wake of the Scary Movies franchise, it's easy to look back at this movie and see only the silly moments, the slapstick etc. But that was one of the things that made this movie standout from the rest at the time. Ghostface wasn't an undead, calm and relentless killer, he was, frankly, a bit of a moron, stumbling over furniture while more often than not, taking a boot in the face from his victim.
It was fresh, vital and just what the horror genre needed back then.
So come on Wes, give it another adrenaline shot to the arm please? In the wake of existing franchise reboots, remakes and re-imaginings, I'm sure we can count on you to deliver just what the doctor orders!
A fun twist on the standard slasher-movie. It was surprisingly funny at places, and the "meta-jokes" towards horror-cliches and tropes were done well. Wes Craven certainly has self-irony, as he made fun of his own horror-series: Nightmare on Elm Street. However, the acting wasn't anything to write home about. It may have been done deliberately, but wasn't so obvious as it should have been in that case. But as many horror-movies, this one dragged on a bit too much, and could have been 10-20 minutes shorter. And the ending was really done in a big rush. But all in all, a good horror comedy.
