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…
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.
Third watch of Hoop-Tober 2.0 | five slasher films (first of five) and five franchises (second of five). Every murder in this movie is goddamn fun, because the victims keep on beating the living shit out of that ghost face killer! Fuck yeah. I’ve rarely been so positively surprised by a movie - after watching, and disliking, Halloween, I would’ve never guessed to be so amused by Wes Craven’s ‘meta’-slasher. The constant reflection up the genre, its classics and their impact upon this movie itself was both unanticipated and brilliant at the same time. An ode to the genre and its strict ‘rules’, whilst abiding to those same rules simultaneously; what a move. One of those rules that it follows…
"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.…
Where's Matthew Lillard's Oscar?
"Bam! Bitch went down."
This just might be one of the smartest, most well-written films I've ever seen, period. Horror genre or otherwise. It is so unbelievably clever, witty, and unserious while also being a completely taut thriller in its own right. I can't think of another film (except perhaps the work of Edgar Wright) that not only tells you the plot, but mocks and has fun with it, all while carrying it out perfectly -- and *still* gets you. Masterful.
I haven't seen Scream in years and while everyone remembers Scream, their favorite quotes, and favorite scenes I didnt remember just how much I loved it and how masterfully crafted it really is.
Wes Craven was a genius. Mocking every single horror movie with his single one. It's hilarious, it's exciting, it's creepy. It really is a shame that the Scary Movie franchise ruined this movie for so many people..
¿Cómo puntúas una película que has visto lo menos una docena de veces y te sigue flipando?
Reinvigorating the slasher genre and showing us that horror movies can be both intelligent and bitingly satirical, Scream transcends any pre-conceived notions of formula or predictability and remains a gem of contemporary American cinema.
We may look back at Scream as being dated, but its riveting to see a genuine portrait of the values and morals of America youth (even bordering adulthood) in accordance with the influence of advanced technology and entertainment. In this way, Scream is an incredible and even timeless commentary on how evil is itself a force that is not circumstantial.
Director Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson together craft a startling vision of a reality we fear to face. This isn't the playfully camp fantasy of…
I can actually imagine this coming out in the 90's and slightly douchey horror buffs watching this and getting all worked up and excited about all of the references, tropes, and meta-humor throughout this film, exactly like Randy did in the movie, the thought of which probably makes them even more excited. They probably tried to convince their friends how great it was and how revolutionary it was for a film to properly homage the genre. Meanwhile, their friends probably didn't think anything past "it was scary and funny".
Basically my review would pretty much be all the aforementioned points, but 20 years later, minus the part about being a horror buff, but significantly douchey-er.
