Day 306

Hallowe'en Week

Hallowe'en Movie Marathon -movie 1

movie: Scream
starring: Neve Campbell, Skeet Ulrich
genre: Horror
year: 1996
format: online

plot: A killer is on the loose at a high school, and is using the rules of horror movies to do so.

This is the movie that rewrote everything in the horror/thriller genres.
Wes Craven's the master at horror and teen drama, and he once again gave a generation something to talk about.

I have to admit, this was a movie when I first saw it almost twenty years ago (yes it's 16 years since this movie came out) I didn't like it.  It's taken having it pop up over the years on late night television seeing snips and bits to sort of come around to the idea of this film.

what do i think i learned from this film?
Not everything is what it first seems, and there are always rules even when you think that you are creating them yourself. And always run outside not upstairs when being threatened.

Check back at 8pm for the next movie...
