It’s getting closer, guys!
“Do you like scary movies?” I do! Scream (1996) is the scary movie for all fans of the genre. It is a movie ABOUT horror movies. Can it get any better? It’s a spoof that isn’t quite a spoof, since while yes there is comedy, it still obeys the laws of the genre. The film follows Sidney Prescott and her friends as their town is ravaged by killers and taunted by “The Scream”. It’s a classic slasher flick imbedded in 90s pop culture. You have to admire Sidney’s strong character, as well as the twisted motive of the real killer(s). As good as the plot is (and I don’t care who you are, it’s good), I most enjoy the mini film lesson the movie provides. Plus its cast is great as well! Drew Barrymore, Neve Campbell, Skeet Ulrich, Courteney Cox, Rose McGowan, David Arquette, and Matthew Lillard. Oh my!
