A year after the murder of her mother, Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) is terrorised by a new killer. With all their knowledge of horror film tropes, can Sidney and her friends escape the ‘Ghostface’ killer?

Wes Craven reimagined the horror genre when he released Scream and, almost 25 years later, it stands the test of time as one of the great horror flicks of the 1990s.

Scream changed the way a generation of horror film fans viewed the genre. The film references come thick and fast, both in the dialogue and the story and structure of Scream.

Its wildly successful combination of violence and clever plot twists, along with laughs and a hot 90s cast, birthed a new, sophisticated horror fan with an appreciation of film history – and a tendency to drop the word ‘meta’ into their conversations!

Screening from a 35mm film print from the NFSA collection.

‘The once hip irony of Scream is now something of a cliche, but after all of the imitations, have another look at the real thing. Clever, quick and bloody funny. 'Bloody' being the operative word’ - Empire
