The Great Scenes # 13: Scream (1996)

Directed by Wes Craven

The 13th Great Scene blogpost just in time for Halloween? What a wonderful coincidence! Yes, since it's Halloween weekend, thought I might do a horror movie this week. But which horror movie scene? There are so many. I finally settled on the opening of Scream, a film I saw in my mid-teens when it first came out. I used to be scared of horror films but slowly but surely I've come around and this movie sealed the deal. The opening scene was terrifying yet such a thrill ride and pretty much revived the slasher film genre.

I like, how he makes her say, that the Nightmare sequels sucked. :)

The opening of all the Scream movies is always my favorite part, they always manage to trick me somehow.

I haven't watched Scream in years but I remember the opening. I still can't get it out of my head.

Never saw the original scream, but now I got a Scary Movie flashback. The rest of those movies were garbage (not scream Scary Movie and the other parodies), but the first was a decent parody for what it was.
