"The writing behind the film is excellent, the idea of teens imitating the movies with more twists than twister. An action packed slasher movie with mystery behind it all no imortal killer just messed up teenagers. It was impossible to guess who done the murders from the begining, you may think you know who is doing the killings then somthing happens and turns your eye to someone else. Overall a fantastic beginning to the best horror trilogy around. The DVD has a few interesting special features, go for this special edition rather than the standard DVD."
Fantastic Transfer of a Title That Never Even Got an Anamorp

"Fantastic transfer of SCREAM. DTS 5.1 track is excellent. Too bad this version has no extras, however, since Scream 4 is a time away, we probably won't get our fix of Scream on blu ray for the next year or two till it comes out. This will more than carry you over with great 1080p picture quality and DTS surround sound. This Australian release will play on your US player (Playstation 3, etc). Two thumbs way way up."

"Scream is a suspenseful slasher with fine score by Marco Beltrami. The dialog and acting are good. Unfortunately, the 2.35:1 widescreen DVD is NOT enhanced for 16:9 TVs, but the picture and sound are very good, though."
It's Like A Spoof That Isn't Funny

"This movie was an okay (borderline "clever") idea to begin with, but if it's horror you're looking for, it will simply not be delivered. It's just too modernized, too hip to be taken seriously. I enjoyed the light comedy and the countless references to horror movies, but this isn't a masterpiece. It also doesn't help that the main stalker ("Ghostface") just seems too down-to-Earth, and I think that any of the teens could (with a little luck) have escaped him, or even murdered him. Another low factor was that Neve Cambell's character sometimes turned this into a laughable melodrama. It's a fun movie, but probably not worth a buy."

"Scream is an extremely scary movie, but when it isn't scary, it's funny, and that's what makes it so good. The story is Drew Barrrymore's character is murdered one night, so everyone at her school is being questioned by the police. Later that night, Sydney Prescott the main character is attacked by the killer, until her boyfriend Billy comes to rescue her. Sydney then notices that Billy has a cell phone[the killer called her first], which leads Sydney to believe that Billy is the killer. After this accident, Billy is sent to jail, but Sydney gets called again. After that happens, Sydney believes Billy isn't the murderer, and after what happened to Sydney, school is canceled, which leads up to a party that the killer is attending, so in turn, many deaths follow, making this a very scary movie."
