Scream(1996)

One of the first real “slasher” movies I ever saw Scream(1996) as a kid and boy did it ever terrify my little mind. The famous first “15” min of the film has more than enough to draw you in. Everyone needs to understand that this film was set on its own and really started the whole caller ID/slasher age. I’ve read plenty of articles stating that after “Scream” was released everyone was getting Caller ID. The first glance we get of “Ghostface” is him stalking a poor high school girl Casey(Drew Barrymore)that turns out quite tragic. That first scene will forever stick in your mind, and really sets the tone for this classic Wes Craven flick. The cast brings so much to the table as we get to understand there is a killer with a motive stalking the small town of Woodsboro. Everything about this movie is really fun and the mystery aspect starts to kick in immediately. Since there are 4 installments in the series everyone knows by now that “There are rules to survive” and “Everybody is a suspect” Spoken by the fan favorite Randy(Jamie Kennedy) as he tends to always be right. This movie will take you on a ride of cold blooded murder, revenge, thrown in with a mix of comedy. I really admire the story work and the effort by everyone that was involved in this film as why this it’s one of my favorite slasher/horror movies of all time and honestly re-amped the whole horror genre by itself. One thing that really intrigued me about this film is the voice of “Ghostface” was actually a real voice done by Roger Jackson and not a voice box that many so thought existed. Wes Craven stated that “The Voice” was never seen by anyone on set. His lines were played out loud as he was not present but still talked on the phone to the actors, which I thought was pretty creepy and clever at the same time. I honestly could go on forever talking about how much I love the Scream Franchise as it still sits high today with 4 installments and the only horror film of its kind to keep the same cast mates so far in the series! If you love horror movies in general then you cannot miss “Scream” as it’s one of the best films of its time. “What’s Your Favorite Scary Movie?”.
