Scream ★★★★★

"Don't blame the movies. Movies don't create psychos, movies make psychos more creative."

I saw this in the cinema when it came out and it remains one of my all-time favorite movies. Memorable performances, a killer soundtrack, iconic characters, beautifully crafted visuals, and sharp writing. This movie has it all.

The impact this film made on the horror genre is undeniable. Scream reinvigorated the slasher film when it was on life support. It's a rare film that is able to simultaneously satirize and show appreciation for the genre. This film accomplishes that and still fulfills all of the expectations of a slasher. It's scary, thrilling, and the well-paced. Horror would not be what it is today without this film.

Recommendation: Must-see!
Whether you are a horror fan or not, this is a movie that you need to see in your lifetime. Even if you're not a slasher fan, there is enough humor in this that you will be entertained. After nearly 26 years, this movie remains relevant and is endlessly rewatchable.
