Scream: The TV Series begins its second season in a couple of weeks, so now is a great time to look back at the film that started it all: Wes Craven’s 1996 hit feature “Scream” – which turns 20 this year.

Equal part comedy and horror, the franchise would never quite hit the heights of the original film again, even if some moments in the sequels come close.

Adam Stolfo, Brose Avard, Stuart Wilson and Matthew O’Neill look back at the film, Kevin Williamson’s writing process, the changes made in post-production and the history behind the infamous Ghostface mask.  They look at the iconic – yes, there’s that word again – cast and the best scenes in the film, not to mention looking into the various cuts that were made in order to have the film avoid the dreaded NC-17 rating.

Do you like scary movies?  We do.  So sit back and listen to us go into geeky detail about one of the best horrors of the 90s!

 

THE TEAM’S REVIEW SCORES

Adam          4 out of 5 – RECOMMEND 

Brose          4 out of 5 – RECOMMEND 

Matthew    3 1/2 out of 5 – RECOMMEND 

Stuart         5 out of 5 – RECOMMEND
