Scream ★★★★½

Technically not a part of my official Halloween watch, but I decided to revisit it before seeing the rest of the franchise next week.

This is definitely one of my favorite slashers, it's so much fun and thrilling, satirizing the gender while also being a great horror movie. I love the twists, the reveal, the characters, and the humor, it's all amazing. But the opening scene with Drew Barrymore has to be one of my favorite scenes ever in a horror movie, it's a masterclass in tension that gets you hooked up while perfectly introducing the rest of the plot. If I could give five stars to that scene alone, I would.

Definitely enjoyed it more on a second watch. It's great!
