Still Screaming The Ultimate Scary Movie Retrospective: Solid documentary about an underwhelming franchise
17 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

It's impossible to argue against the impact the Scream franchise had on the movie industry, it was huge and the very image of it's trademark killer became iconic.

Personally I think the movies were lackluster, pop culture for the sake of pop culture and clichés for the sake of clichés.

This documentary however goes all out and though not incredibly long is a good retrospective of the first three Scream movies and was clearly made to promote the 4th which came out the same year.

All the cast are present and interviewed from Campbell to Arquette and beyond, except however Cox who I suppose is too big a star to bother with a feeble documentary right?

This is a must for fans and an entertaining little bundle of behind the scenes factoids for movie obsessives like me.

The Good:

Very thorough

Great interviews

Patrick Warburton

The Bad:

Courtney Cox's absence

I still don't like the franchise

Things I Learnt From This Documentary:

David Arquette doesn't speak English he speak Arquettian, and I don't understand a word of it

If a movie contains violence it's promoting it
