Scream is the most iconic horror film of the modern day..

Recommended Posts

On December 20, 1996. A pop culture phenomenon was released Scream.


23 years later. This film series joins Friday, The 13th, A nightmare on elm street, Halloween. Only saw came close to joining this status of pop culture status. 


The first film did break horror stereotypes.


Sydney lost her Virginity and survived..For a Final girl. That was a first. As before that. The final Girl was the pure and innocent one. Meaning didn't drink, Be promiscuous. 


Typical Horror rules was Drinking, Being a Ho or a jock, being popular and doing drugs. Technically rules was any sin you enjoyed got you killed..


Being a saint meant you became the heroine and the Nerd became the hero in the end..


Spawned two successful sequels and a 4th one that flopped. 


And a TV series. 


But also is the only film that did spawn real life crimes. Most crimes the killer or perpetrator wanted to do a real life scream. Researching the crimes. It's actually sad. 


The film has a great legacy and its marred by the fact that it did inspire real life murders. Because as some pointed out they wanted to be famous. In one doc about one of the crimes.


A horror film expert said. They missed the entire point of Scream then.


He said. The crime inspired by the film but missed the point. Cos Billy said.
