Scream ★★★★

Oh, my God. Randy I thought you were dead.
I probably should be. I never thought I'd be so happy to be a virgin.

This film is so important from a historical perspective, as Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven collaborated to fully deconstruct the slasher movie, trope by trope, and in the process crafted an insanely entertaining slasher film in and of itself. That it somehow (even after 25 years of copycats and one-uppers duplicating the formula) holds up just as well today as it did in 1996 is pretty amazing. Funny, skillfully directed, and incredibly well scripted. Recommended!
