Scream ★★★★½

"What movie is this from, I Spit On Your Garage?"

Scream is why I love chase scenes and final girls. The chase scenes are still excellent, and of course the mean spirited opening scene was a statement about how Scream would do slashers differently than what else was coming out at the time (released the same year as Leprechaun in Space, in case you're wondering). But Scream offers up the same goofyness and absurd character choices and intensity which characterizes the genre. A great blend of new and old and a movie I keep coming back to.
