Tagline: Someone has taken their love of scary movies one step too far.
December 20, 1996
One the first films to appeal to the teenage of the 90′s, Scream is a pretty good flick to watch when you have nothing else to do. Scream is more of an homage to classic horror film such as Halloween and Friday The 13th.Thus, it exposes something very unique about the horror genre. The uses every horror clichés possible to create a sort of survival manual for a horror film. In Scream, Wes Craven, concocts an homage to the old school slasher films and outlines the basic rules of survival in a horror film, no sex, no drugs and you never say you’ll be right back, cause you won’t. We’ve seen horror, we know the rules. Craven crafts a terrific slasher film that embodies the spirit of a fun horror film perfectly. Scream sparked something big in the late 90′s, it rejuvenated the interest in Horror films, and brought back the dying genre to the masses. A decent cast of characters accommodates the film, but they seemed underdeveloped and not likeable, when they get hacked to death you feel no remorse, you end up rooting for the killers, which is why after all, we love horror films, right?
