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.

6. 2/10. A decent start to this franchise. I find it OK, would'v been better without Jamie Kennedy as I absolutely detested his character. Hance why I cheered when he died in Scream 2. Neve Campbell was easily the best actor of the whole cast, this movie really jump started her career as an actress for at least 5-6 years. If people think it's the best of the bunch, that's their right. I found it pretty OK while preferring Scream 2 more.

Visible crew/equipment: At the end when Sidney's dad falls out of the closet, if you look closely you can see the hands of a crewmember who was in there too, pushing items out after him.

More quotes from Scream

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)

More trivia for Scream

Question: Why didn't Casey ring the police, after the call when she realied he was taunting and making threats?

Answer: Characters in horror movies are notorious for not doing the most obvious things. It's most likely that she was scared and not thinking straight at receiving numerous threatening phone calls, particularly when she is threatened after hanging up on the killer.


Also, when she told the caller that she was "two seconds away from calling the police", his response was that they'd never make it in time. She also knew he was nearby as he made comments that indicated he could see her. She didn't know it was someone that knew her. She's a teenager and scared, so her judgement was clouded. She reached a point where she believed her only chance was to get away from him by either fighting him or getting out and hiding somewhere outside.
