“What’s your favorite scary movie?” Put away the Jiffy-Pop and spend the scariest night of the year at The Loft Cinema with Sidney and Ghostface as we unleash a spine-tingling, rib-tickling twofer of terror, featuring back-to-back screenings of Wes Craven’s original 1996 meta-horror classic, Scream, and the double-the-scares, double-the-fun 1997 sequel, Scream 2! Spooky prizes for best costumes, and free Halloween candy for everyone, while supplies last. It’ll be a real … Scream!
Drew Barrymore. Popcorn on the stove. A ringing landline phone. Thus begins the funny/scary horror hit that single-handedly resurrected the dead-and-buried slasher genre by goosing it with hilariously clever meta-commentary on the clichéd “rules” of horror flicks, while at the same time terrifying audiences and delivering all the bloody good chills and thrills of a real horror movie. Director Wes Craven and screenwriter Kevin Williamson rewrote the scary movie playbook for the jaded ‘90s, giving audiences a resourceful teen heroine to root for (Neve Campbell’s Sidney Prescott), and a masked maniac for the ages (Ghostface), along with a memorable roster of supporting characters (but are they victims or killers?) played by Courtney Cox, David Arquette, Skeet Ulrich, Jamie Kennedy, Rose McGowan and Matthew Lillard. Relive the glory days of mid-‘90s horror on the big screen, and get ready to Scream! (Dir. by Wes Craven, 1996, USA, 111 mins., Rated R)
SCREAM 2 (1997)
Hitting theaters just one year after the surprise success of the original Scream, Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson’s mega-successful sequel kicks off with a highly-effective bit of self-parody as a preview screening of the new horror film, Stab, based on the events depicted in the first Scream, turns into a bloody nightmare while Ghostface stalks the aisles, and from there this fun, subversive and gory shocker proceeds to skewer the “rules” of horror movie sequels with wild abandon. Two years after the events of the first film, Sidney Prescott is in college, and the gang’s all back (at least those who survived the first film), ready to live normal lives, but of course, we know THAT’S not gonna happen, because Ghostface really knows how to make a sequel to die for! And Scream 2 delivers the goods, following the three rules for horror sequels as laid down by super film nerd, Randy: the body count is always bigger, the death scenes are always more elaborate, and never, ever, under any circumstances, assume the killer is dead (Dir. by Wes Craven, 1997, USA, 120 mins., Rated R)
