30 Halloween Movies On Netflix To Stream ASAP
Horror has always been a fairly self-aware genre, but that self-awareness reached its apex with Scream. The movie follows a killer who stalks a suburban high school. What makes Scream unique is the idea that its characters, and especially its killer, has seen other horror movies. As a result, they know what tropes they should be playing into.
Even though Scream proves to be funnier than most horror movies, the movie still delivers on pure scares too — that’s what makes it so good. It’s the perfect combination of laughs and terror, and it’s that combination that keeps you thoroughly engaged throughout.
