I think the reason why this film (and all it’s sequels) was such a success was not only the fact that it poked fun at itself but also because there were quite a few fabulous actors involved. Many of which were "teen idols" at the time and believe me, I did some idolizing all right because Skeet Ulrich and Matthew Lillard are not only talented but I had a major crush on them when Scream first came out (although I’ve since changed my mind about Ulrich, I think Lillard is still great).
Although it’s been eleven years since the first movie in the Scream trilogy came out, I think it’s still as entertaining as the day I first watched it. This one of those classic horror films that you just never see anymore but at least Mr. Ghostface is still notorious! Not only is he still being parodied in various formats, but he also continues to be worn as a Halloween costume even today.
~ I own the VHS but I hope to upgrade to the DVD soon.
