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: Highly entertaining documentary
17 November 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

It's remarkable that in 2011 the Scream franchise got not one but two documentaries. What is even more remarkable is that they are both quite good, especially when I don't consider the Scream movies particularly entertaining.

With great interviews, archive footage and taking a different approach than the same years Still Screaming (2011) this focuses entirely on the first movie as opposed to them all and lightly hypes the fourth part.

Telling the story of the movies creation, all the set backs, it's origins and explaining just how close it came to never happening this is a decent effort.

Between the two I'd say it's an even contest, for the original movie this is stronger but for the franchise go with Still Screaming.

The Good:

Great interviews

The Bad:

Shadowed by the Still Screaming (2011)

Things I Learnt From This Documentary:

Janeane Garofalo should have been Gail Weathers

We need to dig a nice big hole fill it with censors and drown them in camel pee
