This movie reawakened horror genre and was the first of it's kind, its been copied many times since The first time you see it you will be guessing the killers identity until the end!
Amazing I love this movie, I’ve seen it a hundred times
For you millennials: This movie set the bar for almost every horror movie that came after it for the next decade. Before this, horror movies were cliche slasher ripoffs of Halloween (1978). This movie changed that completely! Unfortunately Hollywood did what they always do and just repackaged Scream for the next 10 years in the form of every other horror movie. So if you didn't live through the Freddy and Jason era of the 80s then this movie won't mean as much to you. And if you didn't start watching horror until after 1996 this movie won't seem very original. It's been copied and plagiarized a thousand times since its release, so just understand that going in. But in it's day, it literally broke the mold. It gave us better acting, a script where you couldn't tell who was and wasn't going to die in the first 6 minutes, and an original ending. This movie blew us away.
Totally insulting. Worst movie ever.
Neither funny nor scary, this is a celebration of chiche that constantly undermines itself. Atrocious.
