Scream

Scream is a 1996 horror film, directed by Wes Craven and written by Kevin Williamson. The film revitalized the slasher film genre in the mid 1990s, similar to what Halloween (1978) did for the 1970s, by using a standard concept with a tongue-in-cheek approach that successfully combined straightforward scares with dialogue that satirized slasher film conventions. The film features many teen idols of the time, including; Neve Campbell, Rose McGowan, Skeet Ulrich, Matthew Lillard, Jamie Kennedy, Drew Barrymore, Courteney Cox, David Arquette and Liev Schreiber.

Scream became a major commercial success upon its release, and was one of the highest grossing films of 1996. It was also highly acclaimed by many critics worldwide, who appreciated the film's tongue-in-cheek approach. It got an 86% rating at rottentomatoes.com.As a result it spawned two sequels, Scream 2 and Scream 3.

A signature device, started in Scream and continued in Scream 2 and Scream 3, was the typical "rules" for that type of horror movie being stated by the characters. In Scream, those rules (as described by Randy) are:

  • You may not survive the movie if you have sex.

  • You may not survive the movie if you drink or do drugs.

  • You may not survive the movie if you say "I'll be right back."

  • You may not survive the movie if you ask "Who's there?"

  • You shouldn't go out to investigate a strange noise if you wish to survive.
