Scream

Scream ★★★★★

Rewatch of Wes Craven's Scream. Was instantly obsessed with Scream. I must've been around 14 when it was released. Didn't see in theater but rented like a thousand times. My gateway into the horror genre. Haven't actually watched it in a while. First time checking out the 4K physical media release. Glad to have it in such good condition. Iconic cold open with Drew Barrymore. Love all the characters/performances with MVP Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox). Henry Winkler totally got what this was and is so good in his couple scenes. I forgot the whole climactic house party segment is like 45 minutes long! It's staged and paced so well. Strikes perfect balance of commenting on horror films without becoming a parody of them and in turn is one of the best of them.
