Hell yeah! Why not. I finally rewatched both recently and loved them.

I have to say I thought Scream 1 was a lot more enjoyable than suspected. I watched that one last year. Considering Craven does the sequels too I think, maybe I'll continue on at some point... I still need to see The Hills Have Eyes for him though.

Coincidentally I intend to make Scream my first movie for the month. After that I still have a few older horror films in a multipack I picked up last year. I can't remember all the names but I'll update here as I watch them.

Can't bring up real documentaries without bringing up thus fun one:

Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon (2006)

It was much different than I thought & a bit predictable but I enjoyed it.

Scream is always on my list. Mrs Jago will actually watch those so they're an October must for me.

I was young when the first Scream came out & I remember my older sister telling my mom it was ok to rent. My aunt let me watch horror any way (thanks Nana!) & they knew it. I believe I was 10 when it came out on VHS. Between Freddy & Scream... I have Wes Craven & my cool Aunt to thank for my fondness of horror movies :) wish my uncle had passed on his awesome horror laser disc collection to me. I love looking through the artwork on those.

The original Scream is one of my favs of all time.

Isn't I Know What You Did Last Summer the one that's kind of similar? Maybe with a boat side dock near the end or something. Haha I'm never sure, I think I remember that's one I liked too though.

Gonna go on a whim here and say that Friday the 13th Part 2 has one of the best OST's ever for the genre.

Other than being screenplays by Kevin Williamson they are not that similar.

I also found this one very entertaining. Unique concept.

While we're on the subject of "teen screams" with Scream & Last Summer... I brought this up last year as I watch it watch each October, but I don't think most people have seen this one:

2005's: Cry_Wolf
Image

Notice the cyber theme in this one:
Image

It is a bit of a time capsule of technology. Reminds me of my freshman year in college. Laptops becoming main stream, T Mobile Side Kicks, AOL AIM on phones (text msg not big yet), and... a serial killer comes to life from a chain Email?

OK not that last one but it makes for an entertaining and different PG13 teenage horror movie experience. It's slasher meets psychological.

Pretty cool back story on how the director was funded to make this on a budget:
Cry Wolf (stylized as Cry_Wolf) is a 2005 American horror/slasher murder mystery directed by Jeff Wadlow after he won $1,000,000 at the 2002 Chrysler Million Dollar Film Festival


Nice return there, made $15.5 million.

I know I saw that but have no recollection of the plot. Huh.
