Scream is a movie where I think its going to be a good slasher film but scream in my opinion does more than that. What I am saying is that scream is one of my favorite movies even the sequels (even the 3rd one0

SCREAM RULES!! best horror franchise ever and i prefer the first one to the others though :) but yeah Courteney should get a mention up there..... and like drew barrymore made the series what it is with that opening scene. both should be featured in starring.

Scream is and always will be one of my all-time favorite horror movies. I love all of the "Scream" movies, but I like this one the best.

I'm sorry, but how is this film not in the top 1,000!!! It is such an amazing movie and it just frustrates me that it's not! C'mon Scream fans! Help this masterpiece make the top 1,000!
