Still Screaming: The Ultimate Scary Movie Retrospective (2011)

**** (out of 4)

There have been a handful of documentaries that have been made on the SCREAM films but I think it's fair to say that this here is the most complete to date. I say this because it pretty much features interviews with everyone you'd want to hear from with the one exception being Kevin Williamson who was apparently not too pleased with some of the people in the series at this point.

Not only do we get the usual characters like Craven, Campbell, Kennedy, Arquette and McGowan, we also get to hear from editors, casting agents, producers, extras and cast members who played some of the non-lead roles. Obviously, this was made before the release of SCREAM 4 so that film isn't covered (which, I guess is why I should say this is the definitive documentary on the first three films).

There are a lot of great stories told here as it's clear everyone interviewed are having fun going through the production of these movies. It's also very clear that everyone is quite happy with what the series did for their careers and all of them tell some wonderful stories about the production and aftermath of the film's release. The cast talk about how they got their roles and if they came back for the sequels there's a lot of talk about the alternate versions that were shot and how no one ever knew who the killer was.

Some of the best stories also happen with the first film as we learn about the mask search and the various issues that had to be worked out to get Ghostface to the screen. There's also some great talk about the box office success of the film and what impact it had on the genre. If you're a fan of the SCREAM series then this is certainly a must see.
