Scream

With Wes Craven’s “Scream”, the horror genre was not only revitalized, it was turned upside down. One of the first ever, self aware horror films, which spells out the rules of the horror genre while also partaking in the stereotypes, all while remaining a completely entertaining and sometimes terrifying slasher film. Filled with an exceptional cast from Neve Campbell, Drew Barrymore, Matthew Lillard and Rose McGowan, to Courtney Cox, David Arquette, and Henry Winkler, this original horror film is able to stand the test of time and remain relevant to everyone who watches it today.

If ever there was a prime example of knowing all the rules so that you can break them, Wes Craven proves it with “Scream”, taking his legacy in the horror genre and adding a fresh take to it. Iconic in nature, “Scream” has riveted audiences for over 15 years, toying with their expectations, and bringing to light everything we love about the genre, becoming a staple in the horror genre, with Ghostface becoming just as recognizable as Jason or Freddy.
