Scream ★★★★★

A decade ago, I wasn't an experienced enough horror fan to understand Scream properly when I first saw it. Revisiting it, I see that it is not "just another slasher." It is the slasher about slashers, the ultimate in meta-horror. Kevin Williamson's script is an intricate work of genius. Watching all the twists and turns play out is cinephile heaven. The Ghostface killer could conceivably be almost any character in the film, which creates a unique level of tension. Frightening, twisted, and always hilariously self-aware, Scream is peak horror cinema.
