Medium Level Violence, Horror Theme

Director: Wes Craven
Actors: Neve Campbell, Skeet Ulrich, Drew Barrymore, Courtney Cox, W. Earl Brown, Rose McGowan, David Arquette, Liev Schreiber, Matthew Lillard, Jamie Kennedy

Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) has a lot on her plate. It's hard enough to be a teenager coming of age in today's world, let alone have a boyfriend (Skeet Ulrich) with raging hormones, a father whose life is one business trip after another - and still feel healthy when your mother was brutally murdered one year ago.
Just when things seem to be getting back to normal, for Sidney and her friends, the small town of Woodsboro is once again plagued by a killer. Someone who is taking their love of scarey movies one step too far. To survive they must follow the golden movie rules - don't answer the door, don't leave the house, don't answer the phone, but most of all don't SCREAM.

A very clever and enjoyable movie. It entertains on a variety of levels at the same time. On one level it's a spoof on horror movies, yet it's a horror movie in its own right. As well, it's a classic who-dun-it with all sorts of clues being thrown about, some of which go nowhere, others apparently discounted by other clues. There are surprises in the ultimate resolution. The film also functions as observation about relentless live TV reporting of murder scenes. The reporter here surprisingly is played by Courtney Cox (Friends) in an unrecognisable but effective role.

Awesome horror flick. "Scream" is worth its title and I eagerly await the sequels.

Ann E,
Seen this one several times before many years ago, so just wanted to have another look at a classic teenage slasher movie, a trip down memory lane before the vampire, warewolf supernatural type of movies.

As a film, it's hugely over-rated. But the impact 'Scream' had on the horror genre at the time was immense.

Ultimately another teen slasher movie, but has its moments, uses the jason strategy by the killer doning a ghouls mask. Keeps you guessing til the end who is the killer. Watchable.

Brought back the teen slasher films from the not to distant past! Wes Craven Reinvented the genre so a new generation could enjoy! Wes Craven does his best to add spice to the movie. The movie is both serious and satirical this film is very watchable and even delivers some scares.

Watched the first five minutes and then the BS meter snapped in and I turned it off.
