"Movies don't create psychos. Movies make psychos more creative."
On December 20, 1996, Dimension Films released Scream. Written by a then unknown Kevin Williamson and directed by genre master Wes Craven, this little horror film that could broke box office records and continues to be widely considered as one of the all-time greatest horror movies. But most of you reading this already know that. If you didn’t, stop reading this now and go watch Still Screaming. I’m not here to talk about the behind the scenes or offer trivia that you might not have otherwise known. You can find that anywhere. What I want to do here is get naked. Not really naked. But transparent. I want to tell you what this franchise, but more particularly, the first film, has meant to me on a personal level.
