Peter Spencer’s review published on Letterboxd:
"I'll be right back!"
Scream was one of the best horror the 90s gave us. Scream was the first film of the trilogy, and was the best out of all of them.
In the 90s, the filmmakers wanted a horror film that wasn't about supernatural or cannibalism (or even jumps into your dreams), just a plain lunatic in a mask with a knife who terrorizes his victims with a phone call and then stabs them to death! So basically, the film was more of a slasher film, but it was director Wes Craven's best work.
And for those who've never seen this film, and those who first saw it...no one ever saw the twist coming!
This was me and my sister's favourite film to watch on Halloween.
Scream then became a TV series, but with new characters and different storyline.
R.I.P. Wes Craven, we will miss you.
