Don’t Forget the Rules!

One of my favorite scary movies is Scream, although come to think about it, the movie isn’t that scary. The only actually frightening aspect is that it could actually happen but the whole movie is done in such a tongue-cheek manner that you can’t help but enjoy. If you watch and listen closely you can see that the entire film has references to tons of scary movies including the "main killer icons" (before 1996 of course), Freddy, Jason, and Michael Myers.

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.

Scream 3

~ I own the VHS but I hope to upgrade to the DVD soon.

  1. This is one of my favorite films too. I especially loved the 3rd one. Parker Posey is awesome as Gail Weathers!

  2. YES! Scream is classic. I too love Matthew Lillard in this.

  3. I am not really a horror movie fan, but I did love Scream. I saw the second one as well, but none after that. I think the reason I loved the first movie so much was that it was a play on the genre itself. It's hard to believe it's been 11 years since it first came out. I need to watch it again . . .

  4. i likes scarry movies
