Horror B-Sides – October 9th, 2013
Scream – 1996
Today’s B-Side isn’t just the opening scene from Scream, but more so a master class on how the fuck to do something. As far as horror goes, and honestly, cinema in general, I believe there is no greater opening than the one belonging to Scream. It’s stunning how well the scene builds, until something as benign as the ringing of a phone becomes terror itself. From the casual flirting, to the realization it’s not just casual flirting, until the game is played, the beginning to Scream as well as the film itself is as good as it gets.
