"What's your favourite Scary movie?"
Rewatching the franchise before I do a ranked list next week. Spoiler alert, this is gonna be no1. One of the best horrors ever. A movie that ultimately saved the genre i love and reinvented the whole technique and style in the way horrors are created today. I have nothing but respect for Scream.
There's honestly so much to love. Firstly the characters & cast are all brilliant, so many of these characters are iconic and memerable, they all shine in particular moments. Sidney is one of the best final girls. The movie has the perfect blend of horror & comedy, which personally for me is something rare. I can't fault the writing at all, it's actually phenomenal. Dialogue is so quotable. I love how self aware it is, definitely what makes it unique. Don't think anything will ever top the opening scene.
"No, please don't kill me Mr Ghostface, I wanna be in the sequel."
I could honestly go on forever here, but I won't. Simply it's a masterpiece and one of the best horrors of all time.
