Scream

Scream ★★★★★

Scream is first and foremost a straight slasher film, utilising postmodern sensibilities to create a commentary on a relatively predictable genre. It also serves as a story of loss, grief and acceptance and a statement on the ramifications of the horror film treating human lives as a disposable commodity.

Few pieces on the theme of grief in horror up here including a slightly longer version of my thoughts on Scream.
