When it comes to analyzing the horror “slasher” cycle that came in the late ’90s, the undisputed champ has to be Wes Craven’s genre defining 1996 classic SCREAM.

You Are Probably Watching the SCREAM Movies Wrong

There’s something we don’t talk about when we talk about SCREAM, and we sure do seem to talk about SCREAM a lot, don’t we? (And be warned: we’re about to talk about SPOILERS.)
