SCREAM often gets a bad rap, accused of being the forerunner in the wave of “teen horror” films which dominated the scene from the late 90s on. Nothing could be further from the truth, however. A clever script by Kevin Williamson offers us a deconstruction of the horror genre, while presenting us with a murder-mystery that keeps us guessing until the very end. Often immitated, more often parodied, but an unquestionably important horror film nonetheless, SCREAM made the question “do you like scary movies?” a household phrase.
