Scream is a Post-modern film written by Kevin Williamson and is directed by Wes Crave. Scream was a new type of horror film, keeping the old clichéd aspects of horror, but gave the characters awareness of said clichés. As the main character Sydney quotes 'What's the point they're all the same, some stupid killer stalking some big-breasted girl who can't act who is always running up the stairs when she should be running out the front door, it's insulting.'. Through out the film clips of famous horror films, such as Halloween and A Nightmare on Elm Street are shown also making the film Post-modern.
I rather enjoyed this film even if it was a horror film. I rather liked the fact that it wasn't instantly obvious who the murderer was. It was also funny to hear every one's theory on how a horror film really is constructed and what rules are needed to survive.
