Scream ★★★½

Scream screams ultimate 90's cheese. It perfectly encapsulates the deconstruction of the slasher genre by satirizing what it meant up until that point. Craven had his finger on the pulse and that's what proved his mastery overall.

Unfortunately it still hasn't aged too well. Lillard's performance is atrocious, always has been. The looniness of the third act doesn't play out as well as it once did, but overall Scream is still a hilarious iteration of the slasher genre while also creating a killer who's lasted the test of time.
