Scream ★★★★½

Out of every (great) meta storytelling decision made in this movie, the most ceaselessly amusing was EASILY the grounded spectacle of the choreography for the chase sequences. Every time Ghostface showed up for a shot at a kill (every one of those moments were built up so frighteningly well, too), the entire scene played out like so satisfyingly, it was like watching a slasher ballet. The victims did more than just hide and run, and the killer didn't feel like a supernatural unstoppable force, rather just a desperately energetic psychopath. This dynamic made the scenes more intense, for we witnessed the "limitations" of the predator, and the capability of the preys to handle themselves, creating a tangible hope in escaping that dreadful situation. Awesome stuff.
