Wes Craven's now classic 'post-modern' slasher movie is either loved or hated by most horror fans. I found it to be a superior mix of humorous respect and terror and still revere it today!A masked madman is terrorizing a high school student body as clues to who the killer is are slowly revealed. A great subplot ties it all together with lead actress Neve Campbell's deceased mother...Brilliantly written with a superior twist ending, I found the self-referential humor respectful and an added bonus to the proceedings. Kevin Williamson wrote a truly great script here! Wes Craven's handling of the suspense and attack scenes are perfect, he is the modern day Hitchcock, in my book. A true master! The opening scene with Drew Barrymore is suspense filmmaking at is best, in my book. After the superior 'When A Stranger Calls' I didn't think it was possible to outdo that opening...but Craven proved it was!The music is top notch and performances by Campbell, Courteney Cox, Skeet Ulrich, and Mathew Lillard are simply amazing! SCREAM is top-notch entertainment in my book, from beginning to end! Wicked cool! Oh, I can't not mention Rose McGowan here. She's one foxy babe!
