Today is an extremely sad day. We all found out that the great horror icon himself (Wes Craven) has passed at the age of 76. The man created some of the best horror movies to date, along with 2 highly successful horror franchises that will continue to live on and show his legacy. Not only did Wes Craven help define the horror genre, but he also helped revive it when many horror movies were terrible in the late 90’s (Exception of Scream). Since you’re all following me, I’m pretty sure you’re all aware that Scream is my all time favorite horror movie franchise ever and hearing this news is terrible, but all that’s left to be said is thank you for the scares and for the memories. You will forever be the greatest horror director and will truly be missed!! Time for a marathon!
Plot: After a video of Audrey and Rachel kissing goes viral, high school student Nina and her boyfriend Tyler are brutally murdered which soon rattles Lakewood to a murderer who struck 20 years ago.
Review: It’s been a while since I’ve been on here, but most of you guys know the Scream series just started. All of you must’ve known I would have to come back to review this, I mean how couldn’t I , Scream is my all time favorite horror franchise after all. Let’s get more in depth with this review.
The story is mediocre at best, actually maybe a little better than that. Before I get into what I liked about Scream, there were a few things that I necessarily didn’t quite understand. For starters, the opening scene was kind of confusing and the way that the director had put those things together made it seem like that is the reason for these killings. I’m pretty sure we will get a better understanding of all that in the future, but they could’ve went deeper on that. The one thing I really like about the Scream story is how we’re learning everyones back story including the moms. That alone made me think about who the killer can be the whole episode and I’m glad I got that feel, because it felt like a Scream movie. Still don’t know how I feel about the mask, know they were looking for an original look, but it looks like shit compared to the original. How was the acting, you may ask? Well, it was absolute shit. I can’t even lie to you and say it was decent or one person shined. Like no, lol, they were all terrible. Honestly, don’t get your hopes up, because the acting will make you want to vomit. They were trying to be funny, but said some corny jokes that just made you dislike some of the characters even more. Only bright spot was Bella Thorne and we all know how that went. Although, this might have been good for her, look at where Scream has led Barrymore. Coincidence? I think not!
Did the Scream succeed as a horror show? In this area of Scream I believe the director absolutely delivered. I can’t lie the show did bring the terror, it kept my heart racing the whole time. Scream had a great kill scene, good blood, good build up(especially in the throwback scene), and did a good job in general with keeping the viewer on the edge. Just wish there can be more kills, but that’s not going to happen in Scream the show. This one was awesome though. Final Verdict: Scream had a decent pilot that I do feel is worth a watch. It will be interesting to see how this show progresses. It was nice seeing the character connection to Randy. The show also provided great scares and kills. Although, when it comes down to it, Scream lacked a strong story and had some terrible actors. The show kind of felt like three different things in one. That being Scream mixed with I Know What You Did Last Summer, and Pretty Little Liars. Would’ve been nice if they made it just feel like Scream, but I know it’s hard, which is why I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt. Like Noah said.. “You can’t turn a slasher movie into a TV show.” I agree, but I wish this show the best.
This is just a video I put together of a Scream pumpkin carving, created by yours truly. If you all have been following my blog for a while now, then you already know Scream is my all time favorite franchise of all time. When Halloween came I just had to make a Scream pumpkin carving. Hope you enjoy!

Plot : A masked killer begins murdering teenagers in a small town, and as the body count rises, one girl and her friends contemplate the “rules” of horror films as they find themselves living in a real-life one. She starts to realize that she will never be able to hide from her past and that the killer is always somehow linked too her. What’s your favorite scary movie?
Review : That’s right folks I’m reviewing the entire Scream franchise and giving it an overall rate. These films were legendary, in a sense that they basically helped save the slasher genre. When Scream was made the slasher genre was in a drought, everyone was making movies, but failed to make an enjoyable slasher film. Wes Craven brought us in my opinion, a masterpiece that not only saved the slasher genre, but was it’s own original movie that many people grew too love.
The story was great in all of the four films, even though the plot was basically the same. We see the characters in different settings and different time periods that give each film its own originality. The plot of every movie was basically a person who dresses up as ghost face tries to kill Sidney, and in each of the films the killers all have some kind of link to Sid. It was honestly fantastic and provided so much suspense for the viewers, I know I tried really hard in each film trying too figure out who the killer was and that’s what makes a slasher story great.As for the acting, the cast was probably one of the best things, if not the best about this movie. So many great actors such as Neve Campbell, Jamie Kennedy, David Arquette, Courtney Cox, Skeet Ulrich, Matthew Lillard, Jerry O’ Connel, Timothy Olyphant, Patrick Dempsey, Scott Foley, Emma Roberts, and Hayden Panettiere. Each film had an outsanding cast that did a great job with allowing the viewer to be able to connect with their character and made things highly enjoyable for us. Thank you all, don’t know what this franchise would have been like without you!!
The movies weren’t that scary, but were still creepy enough to make you jump. The movies mainly focused on suspense, which in some cases can make you fear for the characters lives and may even scare you as well. So many kills in this franchise, oh so many. Maybe not as many as Friday the 13th and Halloween, but a good enough amount, and all of the kill scenes were precise, sharp, and highly entertaining. There was a decent amount of blood, could have been more in the films, but like I said before the franchise didn’t need all of that, the suspense did a great job at making these movies so great. Overall this franchise absolutely rocks!! If you’ve watched My Top 5 Horror Franchises YouTube video you know that Scream is my #1 choice. I just have a great amount of love for these movies that will never go away, I still watch every movie when I have the time and I still don’t get bored. The story and acting were absolutely amazing, and it was great seeing how much the characters developed throughout the movies, truly amazing. You really won’t find a better overall cast, than the cast that Scream had. In my opinion no franchise can ever match that overall talent. There were some great kill scenes in the movie and enough scares to keep you entertained. The movie didn’t need that much blood because the suspense made a huge impact on the movie and was able to get the viewers into the films. I also heard that they are making a 5th film and a television series, so I really cant wait for those to come out. All of these movies are fantastic and would recommend everyone to watch them, if they haven’t already. You wont regret it! These films are a must watch, each and every single one of them is highly enjoyable and will keep the viewer on the edge of their seat!
I give this franchise a 9/10
