Slashers were among the most successful subgenres of horror in the 70's and 80's, and then they became predictable, tired, soon before they completely ran out of momentum in the early 90's. Scream reboots the trend by now fleshing out characters that live in the same world horror movie fans do, with Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers and other horror villains constantly referenced.
This is both a slasher and a whodunit, but it features protagonists who try to overcome a series of murders by what they ironically have in common, as friends: their knowledge and love of horror movies. The actors are a well assorted and written bunch that does an impeccable job of reminiscing the subgenre while juggling with a complex underlying mystery the movie heavily relies on.
The jump scares are deserved; written and directed with ideal pacing, dialog, acting and a production value rarely matched by similar movies. The intricate script throws you in all directions, and stays away from the red stuff as much as it can. Scream stimulates you mentally, proving that a good movie, disregarding its classification, can only spawn from a good story.
