Scream

Scream ★★★★

Somehow went 27 years without seeing this and I’m kicking myself for it. Clever and self-aware without veering into parody territory, I genuinely understand how this revived the slasher genre. I love that the heroine is anything but helpless and that the killers actually get knocked around a bit. Extra points for the scene in the news van where we’re watching a horror movie in which people are watching people watch a horror movie. This will probably be a staple of my October movie marathons from now on.
