Editorial Reviews

After a series of mysterious deaths befalls their small town, an offbeat group of friends led by Sidney Prescott (Campbell) become the target of a masked killer in this smash-hit “clever thriller” (The Washington Post) that launched the Scream franchise and breathed new life into the horror genre.

3.0 out of 5 stars Blu-ray is NOT the Unrated Director's Cut April 15, 2011
By Nick-L
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Please note: I'm rating the release, not the movie (which is a favorite of mine).

Save your money and wait for a complete, uncensored release, preferably with some new bonus material.


I broke down and picked this up because Amazon had it on sale for $6. Though not perfect, the picture quality is good/very good. The sound, on the other hand, is fantastic - one of the best DTS-MA tracks I've heard on blu-ray. However, despite all the audio and visual goodness on display, the admittedly small edits to achieve the "R" rating are annoying. The tone of the film changes subtly as a result.

The slow-mo zoom at the end of the opening scene is far more effective than when sped up. A snipped second here and there in a number of other death scenes make them seem cartoonish and sanitized. Two characters appear to repeatedly stab each other with little consequence.

If Scream were released today, it would surely receive an "R" in its uncut form. Compared to the likes of Saw and Hostel, the on-screen violence is positively restrained. Lionsgate dropped the ball on this one. Please don't wait another 15 years to fix it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes....I think it's worth 5 stars October 2, 2009
I'm sure in this day and age it's appropriate to give "Scream" less than 5 stars. Plenty of folks will say how "unoriginal" the movie is, or how it's just a rip-off of a bunch of 80's flicks......and I say Bull***t.

"Scream" jump started the horror movie genre in the 1990's. Without "Scream" we woudn't have flicks like "I Know Whay You Did Last Summer" or "Urban Legend". Without "Scream" we might not have "Inside" or "Martyrs". Sure "Scream" ushered in the 90's version of slasher flickes, but it also ushered in an era of self referential horror films. Wes Craven was able to poke fun of the genre he helped create....and the "Scream" audience was in on the joke.

So many horror films since "Scream" have come to rely on the horror converntions set forth in "Scream" that it actually feels original.

"Scream" is meant to be fun, the cast, and the soundtrack both indicate that this is a fun film, not to be taken too seriously. If you've seen "Terror Train" or "Prom Night" or "Hell Night" than you are the target audience for "Scream", as an homage to 80's horror, you won't find a better film. It plays on the viewer's recollection of Jamie Lee Curtis' early film work, and updating the horror genre beyond what is found in the latest "Halloween". If you are a fan of 80's horror this is a must see.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still a Classic but FYI August 4, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Upon finding out there were some scenes (20 seconds all together) cut out of this version, I went on a hunt for a complete version, I brought an import (region 2) version to get the whole movie and for everyone whos wondering, there is no real big difference, I actually like this version better, so just warning everyone else not to waste time looking for a complete version because it's definatly not worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best movies out there. July 4, 2001
I admit that I didn't see this movie when it first came out, as I wasn't interested in it. But then I began to hear how popular it was--not to mention how cute all the actresses were--so I decided to give it a try. Reluctantly, at first. But I was hooked at the opening moment. We're talking a thriller filled with horror, suspense, action, and humor, combining it all into a great movie. Neve Cambell, David Arquette, and Courtney Cox are a great team, and make the sequels excellent, as well. Sydney Prescott (Cambell) is at the center of a series of gruesome murders. She is a young woman with several skeletons in her closet, the doors ready to be opened by reporter Gale Weathers (Cox) who is in town to cover the murders. Sydney's past and present collide when her boyfriend is the suspected killer, and yet the murders continue. Officer Dewey (Arquette), a not-so-hip cop who has a crush on Sydney, begins to fall in love with Weathers, and still the bodies pile up. Try to guess who dunnit, and then try to stay in your seat as the climax approaches. An engrossing thriller from the master of the genre, featuring a talented cast and an intriguing plot. Don't miss it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Review of the blu ray transfer May 21, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Finally we get all the SCREAM films on blu ray and here we have the first and best that was hugely original and put a much needed original kick in the horror movie genre. We all know the story and we also know that when an older classic film comes out on a blu ray transfer it is really important to find out the quality and if the transfer succeeded. I was thrilled when I popped this movie into my blu ray player and was itching to see the infamous opening scene with Drew Barrymore. Sadly it was a huge disappointment. The audio was great but the video totally lacked clarity and seemed blury and overly grainy. For me the full effect of the scene was lost. Luckily when we get to the next scene with Neve Campbell at her computer the video had hugely improved. The picture was pretty crisp, colors were vibrant, flesh tones realistic and I was then impressed. Throughout the rest of the movie the video quality gets about a B. The dark scenes work well. Black and white ratio is clean and the colors do blend in well. The graininess after the opening scene is there on purpose and looks fine. When the villian dashes in and out of the picture the black and white of the costume looks great. But the part of the movie that is a truly huge improvement over the dvd is the audio. The DTS HD Master 5.1 audio track uses all surround speakers to full effect. Dialogue is crisp and you will be jumping out of your seat in all the right moments. The track is perfect for this classic horror movie and shines. The soundtrack blends in with all the films sounds perfectly.

But the video is where opinions will clash. For me the upgrade to blu ray is much better than my dvd version. I never liked the dvd presentations and the blu ray is in a 1080p enhanced widescreen which makes viewing the film better.
