30-Day Horror Movie Challenge: Favorite Horror Comedy...Scream


Tagline: Someone's Taken Their Love Of Scary Movies One Step Too Far!

Synopsis: Wes Craven re-invented and revitalised the slasher-horror genre with this modern horror classic, which manages to be funny, clever and scary, as a fright-masked knife maniac stalks high-school students in middle-class suburbia. Craven is happy to provide both tension and self-parody as the body count mounts - but the victims aren't always the ones you'd expect. (Google)
I went with a sentimental favorite here. I'm a huge fan of the Scream series, especially the first movie. Even the sequels were good (except for maybe 4, but I still liked it, being a fan and all). Scream did a great job of being scary, while also adding some well-placed comic relief, courtesy of Matthew Lillard, Jamie Kennedy, Rose McGowan, and David Arquette. The story line was intriguing and it really kept me guessing. Never did I expect who the Ghost Face killer turned out to be. The thing about Scream is it's still entertaining even after seeing it many times. I'm thinking it's time again for a marathon.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. Love this one too! And appreciate its rewatch value because the first time I was actually scared, so I didn't really catch its meta horror and comedic depth until my 2nd, 10th, 20th rewatch.

  2. Also top of the list but Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil is my all-time favorite horror comedy! So many good choices, though.
