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.
Fresh and Exciting
Bad Acting and worse Bad Screenplay
I cannot think of one single thing that I would change about this film. The acting is incomparable, the directing deft, and the writing poignantly brilliant.
This is a gorgeous movie made by a gorgeous spirit.
A horror great scream is a personal favourite film and is a masterclass in creation with the ambiguity, style and use of time in the film all concealing the true identity of the killers until the shock reveal, partly why the title has garnered such success over the years since its release. The contained World that's established within is again a show of high levels of skill and testament to the talent of the Director (Craven) and his speciality in horror, highly recommend
This was my first horror experience as a tween, and ever since it's remained a firm favourite of mine. Intelligent and expertly put together, Scream has created a legacy and truly deserves all and any praise it receives.
Wes Craven bring's back the horror/thriller/slasher and adding the mystery genre to make Scream. The director of A Nightmare On Elm Street, The Hill's Have Eyes 1 and 2, Swamp Thing, and another installment of A Nightmare On Elm Street called New Nightmare. All these before Scream, but the slasher genre wasn't doing so great, but Wes Craven worked his movie magic and with his directing came Scream, a movie about teenager's in a small fictional town called Woodsboro, California, who are being stalked by a mysterious killer, it could be anyone? That's one of the hook's to see this movie another one is the new faces introduced to film: Matthew Lillard, Neve Campbell, Skeet Ulrich, Rose McGowan, Jamie Kennedy and more. Also with familiar faces of Courtney Cox, David Arquette,Drew Barrymore and Henry Winkler. This movie bring's the modern day teen's into the world of horror. As with partying and acting like teen's in the 1990's. With the shocking, but obviously reveal of the killer make's the movie clues about the killer actually make sense. Kevin WIlliamson's script make's this movie a cult classic along with Wes Craven's directing. And with Bob and Harvey Weinstein executive producing the movie with their movie production company Dimension Films. And now GhostFace is now part of cinematic history and his famous phone call's before he "slices and dices" his victims. Almost 21 year's later it is still very influential with how it's filmmaking.
I am a Huge Wes Craven fan! I mean there has not been one film I have seen of his that I have not been impressed with. Any one who knows me, knows that if I am choosing the movie, it is going to be a Horror Movie. For as long as I can remember Scream has always been my #1 Favorite! The cast that was picked for this movie could not have worked better together. Still after all the years that have passed & new Horror Movies have been released, I still find myself wanting something as good or better then Scream, I have not found myself very impressed! There will always be something so nostalgic about this film that can never be replaced!
