A year after her mother's death, Sydney Prescott (Neve Campbell), and her friends started experiencing some strange phone calls. They later learned the calls were coming from a crazed serial killer, in a white faced mask and a large black robe, looking for revenge. His phone calls usually consist of many questions, the main one being: Whats your favorite scary movie? Along with many scary movie trivia, ending with bloody pieces of innocent lives scattered around the small town of Woodsboro.Written by
(At around one hour and eight minutes) When Billy takes Sidney upstairs, Randy asks Stu, "What's Leatherface doing here?" This is a reference to The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974), where the killer was called "Leatherface". See more »
Houses with multiple phones all ring simultaneously when a phone call is received, however, only the cordless phone from the kitchen rings after the killer's first two phone calls. See more »
Watching this film for the first time in the basement of a four story house, with no-one else in was the perfect setting for this film. From the very first scene I was gripped and I could not wait for the climax to discover the murderer and his motives. The script was extremely original, as they had purposely set out to parodie the typical slasher style movie.
It was written in a way that deceived and tricked and had you jumping out of your seats but also laughing at the paradoxical black humour. For anyone looking for a good horror film with a twist, you won't find a better one than Scream.
Overall I give it 9.5/10
