Streamed on WOW: This legendary horror film is definitely worth staying up for

For fans of slasher movies, this 90s horror trip was a welcome change and breathed new life into the genre.

High school student Sidney Prescott, played by Neve Campell, is still grappling with the murder of her mother when new bloody crimes break out in the small American town of Woodsboro. Executed by a hitman in a white mask and black robe who calls and confuses his victims with questions about horror movies beforehand. But apparently the killings are not indiscriminate. They seem to want to harm Sidney and those around her. Along with police officer Dewy, played by David Arquette, and Courtney Cox’ TV reporter Gale Weathers, Sidney searches for answers and tries to find out who’s under the mask. Since the first appearance of the killer, simply known as Ghostface, four sequels have followed and “Scream” has gone down in film and pop culture history. The mask is ubiquitous every Halloween and Sidney Prescott became the next so-called after Laurie Strode from “Halloween”. Scream Queen.

Anyone can be under the Ghostface mask, but if you want to know which horror movie killer you would be, then our following video will help you.

“Scream”: Horror satire that gets under your skin

It all started with a phone call asking what Drew Barrymore’s character Casey Becker’s favorite horror film was. Even those who haven’t seen the “Scream” movies know the phrase “Do you like scary movies?” most likely because he’s one of the most famous quotes become of film history. And precisely because “Scream” used the iconic predecessor films around Michael Meyers from “Halloween” and Jason Vorhees from “Friday the 13th” as a template for its unusual concept, the franchise has become so successful. “Scream” is a kind of satire and at the same time a “High Concept Movie”, which means that he focuses on a very specific idea. In the case of Wes Craven’s horror classic, that’s the “Meta Movie”. The film with Ghostface knows the classic slashers and their unwritten rules and builds them in tongue-in-cheek and visible to both the audience and the characters, it even plays with them and assumes them. This concept in connection with what is actually classic for crime novels “whodunit”principle made the first part of the “Scream” series a cult film in a very short time and at the same time was able to revive the deceased genre of the slasher. Anyone who wants to be convinced by Wes Craven’s cruelly beautiful satire festival again or for the first time can do so do on WOW in the stream.
