I watched this movie on Netflix.
So I admit, I'm pretty late to the party when it comes to getting into the Scream franchise. I've heard it talked about a lot in the past, and seen it parodied in movies like Scary Movie, even though Scream itself is a bit of a parody of other slasher films itself.
But regardless, I don't have the same attachment and connection to this film that people do who grew up with it and saw it 24 years ago. I did enjoy it however, and thought it a pretty good Slasher film that did try to turn the genre on it's head. It takes the tropes and cliches of Slashers and both pokes fun at them, while also celebrating them at the same time. It's a fun little movie that launched a franchise, for better or for worse.
Mistake Status: Caught a few in my viewing, this isn't really very high priority to go back to and visit again.
Randy: There are certain rules one must abide in order to sucuessfully survive a horror movie, rule number one, you can never have sex.
Randy: Big no-no! Big no-no!
Stu: I'd be a dead man.
Randy: Rule number two, you can never drink or do drugs. [Everyone clacks their beers together.] It's the sin factor. An extension of number one. And number three, never, ever, under any circumstances say "I'll be right back." Because you won't be back.
Stu: Hey, I'm gettin' another beer, you want one?
Randy: Yeah, sure.
Stu: [Dramatically.] I'll be right back!
Randy: Yeah, you bent the rules. I'll see you in the kitchen with a knife.
Trivia: When Sidney and Tatum are talking on the porch, Sidney says, "...If I'm wrong, that means the killer may still be out there..." Tatum replies, "Don't go there, Sid. You're starting to sound like some Wes Carpenter flick." This is an inside joke about "Scream" director Wes Craven. He often jokes about how people always confuse him with "Halloween" director John Carpenter. (00:54:10)
