Scream (1996) Revisited – Horror Party Movies

The new episode of the Horror Party Movies video series looks back at director Wes Craven’s 1996 slasher Scream

A new episode of our Best Horror Party Movies video series has just been released, and with this one we’re looking back at the 1996 slasher Scream (watch it HERE). This just seemed like the perfect time to have a Scream party, since the new sequel Scream VI (read our review at THIS LINK) is now in theatres. And to find out how we party to Scream, check out the video embedded above!

Directed by the legendary Wes Craven from a screenplay by Kevin Williamson, Scream has the following synopsis: Wes Craven re-invented and revitalized 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.

The film stars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Jamie Kennedy, Skeet Ulrich, Matthew Lillard, Rose McGowan, W. Earl Brown, Drew Barrymore, Joseph Whipp, and Henry Winkler.

Here’s what the Best Horror Party Movies series is all about: Welcome to the Best Horror Party Movies where we single out the BEST horror movies to watch with a couple of drinks and some buddies in tow, even if it’s a “watch party”. Hence movies that are intentionally or unintentionally funny, that are extreme, fast paced, goofy, and raunchy – all the fun times toppings in the house! Films you can pay attention to or you can have in the back ground. We even tossed a party game in there, one tailored to each episode’s selection, including recommended “doses” for toasting (or roasting) all the sleaze, cheese, guts and gore you can stuff into your cranium. So get in here and get crazy… ‘cuz it’s a HORROR PARTY!

The Scream episode of Best Horror Party Movies was Written, Narrated/Hosted, and Edited by Mike Conway, Produced by John Fallon, and Executive Produced by Berge Garabedian.
