Gleefully meta slasher flick that’s as scary as it’s funny. The ensemble cast is good across the board.

It's A Scream Baby!

MovieAddict - wrote on 04/05/2012

Sidney Prescott (legendary played by Neve Campell), the main protagonist, is the typical young pretty high-school teen whose mother was murdered and raped and now the killer is after her, too! The movie starts off with a classic opening starring Drew Barrymore as an unsuspecting victim that the killer is playing games with over the phone. We are then introduced to several friends who are killed off one by one, by a masked killer with a very sharp knife. Whether it's Drew Barrymore's brief cameo or Matthew Lillard and Jamie Kennedy analyzing the rules of horror, so many moments are memorable and entertaining. David Arquette rocks as idiotic cop Dewey. Then there is Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox-Arqette) as the tough as nails reporter. This film is perfectly paced, cleverly written and …

Screams of Joy

Scream was one of the best horror movies I've ever seen.

The story for Scream, although a bit typical for horror movies, is wonderfully put together and brought out. The script was written very well, and the story progressed in a way that made sense. Through the movie, I tried to guess what would happen next. Half the time, including the ending, I was wrong. This really helped bring out the suspenseful scenes in the movie.

There were moments where I just fell in love with the characters on the screen. I couldn't wait to see what they would do next.

Finally, the music. I absolutely loved how the …

Reinvention of the wheel!!

Every once in a while a movie breaks the mold and redefines a genre, Scream is one such movie.

This isn't going to teach you anything new about life, broaden your horizons, or appeal to those of you looking for such. The movie is titled, "Scream," and if you think you're getting something other than a teen slasher, you're mistaken. This movie doesn't save the planet, it's only there to entertain, which it does better than any other horror film you'll see. No, it isn't the most frightening movie ever made, just the most fun. If you want terrifying slasher, go with the original "Halloween." Scream keeps all the tenets of the slasher genre: teens, serial killer on the loose, killer is unknown, killer has a unique look, and all the characters are stereotypes. On a deeper level, the genre …
