Comments:

I really liked Scream a lot. For whatever reason, just like with The Blair Witch Project, a lot of people dislike this film and its sequels. This movie pokes fun at the slasher genre and points out all of the "rules" in a horror movie. You know, non-virgins getting killed first, people always splitting up when they should be sticking together, the most likely killer is NEVER the killer, etc. This one has gotten enough press that I really don't have to go into much detail on the plot. Neve Campbell plays Sidney Prescott, a girl whose mother was killed a long time ago and who now seems to be a main target of the new serial killer running about town. As Sidney gets chased around, others get sliced and diced, and red herrings are thrown out all over the place. This was a really good flick that spawned numerous copycats and made a ton of money. It should definitely be in everyone's collection.
