Randi Reckless’s review published on Letterboxd:
Reasons why this is still my favorite slasher film of all time:
🔪It’s a satire that manages to surpass the genre it’s spoofing
🔪Ghostface’s iconic (and terrifying) phone voice
🔪That scene where Sidney tells the killer on the phone that she’s too feminist to watch horror films
🔪Wes Craven only directing after he heard Drew Barrymore had signed on - everyone say THANK YOU, Ms. Barrymore!
🔪Sidney’s sassy BFF played by Rose McGowan (“Please don't kill me, Mr. Ghostface! I wanna be in the sequel!”)
🔪 Billy and Stu: best horror duo
🔪The chemistry between Courtney Fox and her future husband David Arquette!
🔪The teens acting like dumbass teens: school’s cancelled because of a serial killer spree? Time to party!
🔪Matthew Lillard is a revelation in this! Criminally underrated actor!
🔪Features a 90’s video store! 📼 “If you were the only suspect in a senseless bloodbath, would you be standing in the Horror section?”
🔪Jamie Kennedy saying, “Jamie, look behind you!” while watching Halloween
🔪Absolutely scared the shit out of me as a kid
