Storyline

In 1996, the horror master Wes Craven (A Nightmare on Elm Street) unleashed Scream, a slasher movie aimed at a whole new generation of teenage movie-goers. Though premiering at a time when horror movies were in decline and plagued with an array of start up problems, Scream went on to shatter box-office records for horror films, earning well over $100 million in domestic box office receipts, revived Craven's career and turned first-time screenwriter Kevin Williamson and a group of hot young television actors (among them Neve Campbell, Skeet Ulrich and Rose McGowan) into overnight stars. The film became a huge success, spawned three sequels and single-handedly revived the horror genre. "Scream: The Inside Story" features all-new interviews with Wes Craven, Neve Campell, David Arquette, Jamie Kennedy, Rose McGowan and Matthew Lillard along with the many other cast and crew.

Scream: The Inside Story (2011)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Nice, detailed look at the making of Wes Craven's SCREAM features interview with the director himself as well as writer Kevin Williamson and actors Neve Campbell, David Arquette, Courteney Cox, Robert Englund, Matthew Lillard, Jamie Kennedy, Rose McGowan, Bob Weinstein, Skeet Ulrich and Eli Roth. The documentary goes into great detail the various pre-production issues that happened with the film including how Craven kept turning the project down while others like George Romero did the same. There's also a great deal talked about how Drew Barrymore signed up to play the lead only to then change her mind weeks before shooting. Stuff like the casting is discussed in detail as well as the eventual controversy including a local school refusing them permission to shoot there. There's also quite a bit of talk about the film getting an NC-17 rating and how they eventually got an R-rating. If you're a fan of the film then pretty much anything you want to know is going to be answered here. The cast and crew are very open about where they were in their careers at this time and what impact this movie had on them. Craven is always great to listen to and once again he shares some great stories and well as his thoughts about the film once it became a hit. Those wanting to hear about the sequels will probably be disappointed because the only one really mentioned is part four and this was due to this documentary coming up just shortly before that film was released theatrically. The documentary certainly gives the film all the credit for it changing horror history but it does fail to mention a few earlier films that used the laughs and the terror.
